Hi guys! Happy Thursday! I hope you’re all having a great week. Today I’m about to embark on a grand new adventure. Yes you read the title right, I will be participating in my very first readathon… at the same time that I’ll be traveling… yes I know I’m crazy! 😂
I saw this on Lauren‘s blog and I just had to jump at the opportunity… okay well I actually thought I was going to sit this out… traveling throughout June and all, buuuut it was actually Lauren who persuaded me (although I think I was halfway there) to do it even if it’s just two books… and I thought, yeah! you know what, I will! Alas, this blog post came into existence!
The Sims-A-Thon readathon is being hosted by Kara @ biancareads. It’s running from the 1st-30th June. This readathon will be based on The Sims 4. You can watch Kara’s video below where she goes into all the details about the challenges:
Lauren also created a spread sheet to keep track of things:
And a cute card if you want to use on social media and whatnot:
I think it’s super cute! I would use it, but as this is my very first readathon… in the four years I’ve had a blog 😞 I’m just going to keep things very simple and let you all know what I plan to read.
Create-a-Sim 5 pts.
Read a book that is first in a series
I will be reading The Red Scrolls of Magic by: Cassandra Clare.
Buy a House 3 pts.
Read a contemporary or a book set in our world
I want to read Emergency Contact by: Mary H.K. Choi.
Career: Secret Agent 5 pts.
Read a mystery book
I plan to read The Killer in Me by: Margot Harrison… but I may change the mystery I read… we shall see. My other runner up is The Chalk Man by: C. J. Tudor
Fall in Love 3 pts.
Read a book with a romance element
I would like to read P.S. I Like You by: Kasie West. Her books are always so light and fluffy and it’s perfect for vacation, so I plan to take this with me.
Eat a Cooke 1 pt.
Read a book under 200 pages
I just finished reading the Kane Chronicles so before I go away in a week I want to read the Survival Guide, which according to Goodreads is 144 pages… I tried to take it out at the library and it kept telling me it was ‘temporarily unavailable’ so I will try again this weekend.
I’m looking at trying to gain 17 points! This may be lofty of me to set such high expectations for myself, but I believe in myself. I wanted to do a half month check in… but seeing as I won’t be around much to check in, I will only be doing a wrap up at the end of June. Wish me luck!
If you’re a fan of the Sims, I highly encourage you to join in! 🙂
