Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Kick Off!

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

The Once Upon a Read-a-Thon is here!  In case you didn’t already know, this awesome event is hosted by myself, Lori from Pure Imagination and Angela from Reading Angel.  It runs from right now through July 11th.  It’s not too late to sign up!  We are also giving away a $60 gift card to one lucky participant!  In order to qualify you have to do at least one update post and at least one challenge.  The winner will be selected from those who sign up on the linky on the sign up post (click the button on the left).

You do not have to have a blog to participate but you do have to post updates somewhere. Twitter, Facebook, all those places work. If you update on twitter be sure to add the hashtag #OUReadathon so we can all see how everyone is doing! Also, to qualify for all the awesome prizes you need to participate in at least one challenge.
We have mini challenges!  Here is the schedule for you all:


I’m setting my goals pretty low so I should be able to reach them.  I’m a mood reader though, so it’s possible I’ll blow one or more off to read something else. Here are a few on my stack.  My goal is to read at least three of them.
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell
The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielson
The Hunchback Assignments by Arthur Slade
 Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (I might start this before the readathon, so it’s possible it’ll be taken off the list.)
And there are SO many I WANT to read, so this list could very well change!

Good luck everyone!  Happy reading!

  1. YAY SCARLET!!!! I loved that book so much, I can’t wait to see what you think Candace! I just finished Throne of Glass as well, I’m curious to read your thoughts on it, I feel like I might be in the minority on this one :(

  2. Ooh! My sister brought home Scarlet the other day and said it was good. I’ve been meaning to get to it.

    Good luck and have fun!

  3. Throne of Glass looks so wonderful! I hope that you end up enjoying that one. =) I’ve also heard such fabulous things about Scarlet- so I’ll keep a lookout for your updates!

    Good luck, and I hope that you have fun!!

  4. I’m a mood reader too so I’m not sure how well I’ll stick to my own list.

    Scarlet and Throne of Glass are both top wishlist books for me so I can’t wait to hear what you think of them. They seem AMAZING. Good luck and happy reading!

  5. I wish I could have done this but I am still spinning my wheels since I got back, trying to catch up. I seriously need to go on a reading binge and get some books off my pile! Glad to see that summer finally arrived in Portland just in time for my return!
