End of Summer Read-a-thon

 Lisa at Turning Pages and Audris at YA Bookmark are hosting the End of Summer Read-a-thon!
I've missed the past couple of readathons that have taken place recently so I was excited to learn about this one. It couldn't have come at a better time because I am trying to read as many books as I can before I head off to college!  

Here is more about the readathon:

What is The End of Summer Read-A-Thon?
The End of Summer Read-A-Thon is hosted by me (Lisa) from Turning Pages and Audris from YA Bookmark; running from August 9th through August 12th. The End of Summer Read-A-Thon is a long weekend filled with books, challenges, giveaways and other special posts.

What do you do?
All you have to do is gather up a big stack of books, either summer themed, or books you planned on finally reading this summer, and start reading and don’t stop until Monday August 12th!! I plan on reading books that have been sitting on my shelf for months now, unread. Also tons of giveaways, challenges, and special posts are planned out on both Turning Pages and YA Bookmark, so it’s easy to be able to join in on the fun!

How to take part?
All you have to do is fill out the form below, with all the information required, and you’ll be in! The information to take part in giveaways and challenges will be listed in each post.

What can you get?
Besides finally finishing those unread TBR books, each day Audris and I will host giveaways on our blogs! That means eight giveaways in four days!! Yes eight! Besides that, each day will hold a new challenge on both Turning Pages and YA Bookmark, completing each challenge will add another entry in our final HUGE giveaway! So yes, actually nine giveaways in four days! The more challenges you complete, the greater your chance is to win our final giveaway!

I'm not going to make a list of what I'm going to read because I'm notorious for not sticking to what I say I'm going to read. But, there are quite a few books on my shelf that I've had for quite some time. I'm going give you a taste of just some of the books that I may get to:
Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama
The Mediator: Haunted by Meg Cabot
Sirens by Janet Fox
Gilt by Katherine Longshore
Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
Storm Born by Richelle Mead
And there's a lot more. 



  1. I've heard AMAZING things about Monstrous Beauty, apparently it's really dark and so creative :D Good luck reading all of the books! I also stray away from my schedule a lot too :)

  2. Thank you so much for signing up! And also thank you for the nice comments on Turning Pages! I hope the read-a-thon is a success for all of us (: goodluck!

    Sign up for the End of Summer Read-A-Thon!

  3. Good luck with your readathon! I've never done one because I'm such a slow reader but I bet you'll do great!
