I have an announcement to make! The awesome Daph from Loving Books and I have been plotting something (hopefully) very exciting for the whole month of May - basically, it's a month where you try extra extra hard to make a dent in your review TBR pile! The last month or so I've been in a bit of a funk and I haven't read as much as I'd like to, and Goodreads keeps telling me I'm six or seven books behind on my target so I'm hoping this month will help both you and us! And the best thing? You can join in too! :D
We've got some really exciting things planned - international giveaways for all participants, Q&As with other bloggers on how they tackle their TBRs, their thoughts on NetGalley and loads of other tips and interesting things about being a book reader and reviewer! And if you're finding it difficult to find the time to read and review, we've got a readathon and a reviewathon planned out so you won't be alone!
The dates for these 'thons are as follows:
Readathon: 11th - 13th - make sure you have this weekend free so you can read and read and read!
Reviewathon: 18th - 20th - this is to give you that extra push needed to review all those books you read in the readathon ;P
Not a blogger?
That's fine! The whole point of the month is to get the reading out of the way to make room for all the awesome new books that are coming out in summer, so you don't have to be a blogger/reviewer to take part. You can just do all the reading and skip the reviewing - maybe even read more because of it :)
So, are you up for it? From May 1st to May 31st, a whole month of everything bookish - from reading to reviewing! Hopefully you can reduce your TBR pile, get some of those books that have been neglected read and reviewed, so everyone's happy. But the most important thing - we want to have lots of bookish fun! Kick-off post with more information and a tentative schedule goes up on May 1st - we can't wait to see you then! :D
