I wasn't planning on scheduling another readathon so soon, but I was thinking about how much I need to catch up on current reads before the OWLs start on Monday, and I figured it was perfect timing since I know some of you need to finish up some reads, too! This readathon starts at 12:00AM (your time zone) on Saturday, March 30th and ends at 11:59PM on Sunday, March 31st .

Since this is our first 2-day readathon, there's only one prompt: finish a current read! Doesn't matter if you're 5% or 95% in, just try to finish something on your currently-reading shelf. 😊

As always, participation and following the prompt(s) is totally optional.

One last thing: because I'm impatient and want to get some serious reading done on Friday, too, you can start this readathon on the 29th if you want to! I didn't want to make it part of the official readathon dates since it's already the 29th for a lot of you as I'm making this post (it's 11:53PM on the 28th here), but if you want to log your pages read, hours read, etc. for Friday, please feel free to do so! I know I will be!

Have fun! ♥♥♥

Sofi | 1 comments I’m so excited! This is gonna be fun. I definitely think I’m gonna start Friday. I have three current reads - King of Scars, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and A Curse So Dark and Lonely - and I’m really loving all of them so far. I’m so happy there’s a readathon happening.

Caylynn | 10 comments I'm counting the 29th in my Readathon since I won't be able to read AT ALL on Saturday (14 hour work shifts yaaaaaay), but here's my expected TBR!

Finish a Current Read Prompt
-Crown of Feathers (starting pg. 82)

Read
-City of Ghosts
-Laybrinth Lost
-Crown's Game
---------------------------

Total Pages/Day
Friday, March 29th: 214pgs
Saturday, March 30th: 475pgs
Sunday, March 31st: 195pgs

Updates
3/30, 8:45pm- Finished Crown of Feathers! Amazing book!
3/30, 9:51pm- Working on City of Ghosts. Halfway through, since it's an easy MG read
3/30, 10:33pm- Finished City of Ghosts, now on to Labyrinth Lost.
3/31, 9:47pm- Got halfway through Labyrinth Lost. My mom and sisters wanted to meet up with me in the cities so I spent less time reading than I would have liked.

Keri | 1 comments Oooh, this is literally perfect timing! I will definitely be starting Friday because I have a lot of pages to read between my 2 current reads.

TBR/Current Reads:
The Witchwood Crown (The Last King of Osten Ard, #1) by Tad Williams Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy, #1) by Emily A. Duncan

Progress:
March 29: Wicked Saints (4%-35% = ~125 pages)
March 30: Wicked Saints (35%-86% = ~204 pages)
March 31: Wicked Saints (86-100% = ~55 pages), The Witchwood Crown (pg. 461-470)

Books Finished:
Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy, #1) by Emily A. Duncan

Well, I got one out of the two, so I guess this was semi-successful for me?

Sorcery has been so good so far and I am SO glad you loved AEOR!! I just got done rereading it and I loved it just as much the second time around ♥♥

I'm so glad so many of you are excited for the readathon and not mad at me that the timing was so sudden! 😂😂

It's about 3am and I just finished The Takeover Effect! I gave it 4/5 stars. I was 5% into it before midnight, so I read 365 pages! I'm about to write up a review/blog post for tomorrow and then I'm going to bed but I'm hoping to wake up in time to start Wicked Saints before work. 😊

message 27: by Alex (new)

Alex (greywardenblue) | 9 comments This is actually well-timed for me because there's two books I really want to finish in March for other challenges. Technically, Vellitt Boe is the only one I've started, but they're both marked as current reads on Goodreads, so... :P

The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe
Crooked Kingdom


message 28: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin (caitisbooked) | 24 comments Hi all! Yay another readathon!

I'm currently reading Vermin, which I've read about 35% and The Survivor, which I've read about 102 pages, which equates to 25%.

I'm going to include today (Friday) as a part of the readathon as I've got a pretty busy Saturday with work and going to a sporting event. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to read during this readathon, but I'm excited to participate again


message 29: by Milou (new)

Milou | 3 comments This is Perfect, as I also have a few books I want to finish up before the OWLs start (although one of them is my read for Charms). I am also going to include today.

message 30: by Megan (new)

Megan | 16 comments It's Friday here in my timezone, so I'm definitely starting now - especially as I just picked up a new read today. I have family visiting me on the weekend, so I'm not sure how much reading I'll be able to get done, but I'm hoping to finish Song of the Dead by Sunday night.


message 31: by Figgy (new)

Figgy (figgyoconnell) | 4 comments I've just finished The Migration. I only had 33 pages to go in this sitting, but I read it while at work, in between getting kids fed, ready for bed, clothes folded, and so on.

I was sitting on about 55% at midnight on the 29th, so I read 45% or 170-ish pages today over about 3 hours.

Not sure of my rating yet... probably 4/5?


message 32: by Katie (new)

Katie Anna | 2 comments Wow. I am amazed with how you guys can read multiple books at a time. That would be a goal for me. Heh. I am currently ready A Blunt Instrument by Georgette Heyer so I’d like to finish that. 😊 Then challenge myself to read multiple!
