Trees of Reverie Read-a-thon TBR & Goals

Hello my lovelies!

I am here to announce that I’m an official participant of the Trees of Reverie read-a-thon. It’s a two week read-a-thon beginning September 14th at midnight to September 28th at 11:59pm. This is hosted by Sarah from TreesOfReverie on tumblr.
Today I wanted to share my TBR for the read-a-thon and which reading challenges I’ll be taking part in. Since this is a two week read-a-thon and I tend to read about 5-6 books per week my TBR is a bit ambitious, but considering that these are all review books they’ll be read. There are a ton of awesome challenges, but I’ll only do a few of them.

Reading Goals

  • I plan to spend all day reading -- or at least when I'm not taking care of my son or doing house chores :)
  • Read a minimum of 2500 pages total
  • Read a minimum of 10 books
  • Write reviews for all the books I complete
  • Start a TBR Jar
  • Create a companion journal to my current book journal
  • Create a book-based tumblr
These goals are not to pressure me, but to just make sure I spend time reading and being a biblio!
