Bk21 of December & #WinterGames2021 & Bk1 of #NewYearSpecial #20in4 #readathon is done. A cute little romcom with some witchy woman thrown in, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Reminds me a lot of Jenny Colgan with a touch of magic. Hope there‘s a bk2! #AVeryMerryBingo #TisTheReadson #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #DecembersBookBingo #StandaloneDecember #FairyTaleathonBingo #SeasonsOfReading #MistletoeManiacs #1,816pts👇

TheAromaofBooks This was one that as I was reading it I kept thinking “I really shouldn't be enjoying this because it's doing all these things that usually annoy me“... but for some reason it was just so fun that I just totally rolled with it! 6mo
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks have you read any of Colgan‘s books? If you liked this you‘ll probably like hers👍 6mo
TheAromaofBooks I actually don't think I have, although I have seen her name around. Do you have a favorite? 6mo
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks I loved her Bookshop On The Corner & her Beach Street Bakery series. 6mo
TheAromaofBooks oooo thank you! 6mo

Bk10 of December & #WinterGames2021 is done! I love Jenny Colgan‘s books. I‘m not a romcom/chicklit reader at all but her books always make me smile. Plus I love the setting, Scotland is top of my travel wishlist, and this book makes Edinburgh sound so magical. And there‘s a bookshop!🙌 #AVeryMerryBingo #HemisphereGames #MerryBookmas #TisTheReadson #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #Adventathon #MistletoeManiacs 5,326pts👇

I was looking forward to this one but I must admit,I‘m underwhelmed.A locked room mystery set on an Antarctic base during winter, the setting was well written but the plot was a bit predictable.Oh well, better luck next time🤷🏻‍♀️ #AVeryMerryBingo #MerryBookmas2021 #TisTheReadson #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #ChristmasFilmsReadathon #DecembersBookBingo #MistletoeManiacs 2,826pts👇

Bk9 of November & Bk2 of #20in4 #readathon is done! I was really looking forward to this one, his first book The Bluffs was brilliant, but I‘m a bit underwhelmed with this one. It started out good but the middle just kinda fell apart before a bit of redemption in the last few chapters. The MC‘s weren‘t written well, it was very chaotic, I expected more honestly. I hate giving so-so reviews🤷🏻‍♀️ #BookspinBingo #Pop21 #PickYourPoison #Pageathon👇

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 7mo
Andrew65 Great progress, hope you are continuing to improve 👏👏👏 7mo

Bk8 of November & Bk1 of #20in4 #readathon is done! I actually read this before but it was more skim read at the time coz brainfog meant I didn‘t grasp the science well, and this is full of it. As well as being one of the best heist novels I‘ve read! Is #SpaceHeist a genre? It bloody should be. I loved the gang formed to pull the con off, I love the con itself & I really enjoyed the science this time around. Needs repeat reads👍 #BookspinBingo 👇

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! This one sounds super fun - stacked!! 7mo
Andrew65 A great first day 👏👏👏 7mo

Two Thousand Maniacs! | Herschell Gordon Lewis

Hello, and welcome to team #MistletoeManiacs! If you‘ve been tagged in this post, you‘re on my team. For those of you who are new here, my name is Cassandra and I will be your #WinterGames team captain. I am so excited to be reading with you this holiday season. With the #WinterGames fun only a few weeks away, I‘d like to discuss some event details in the comments below. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask down below as well! ☺️🎄

Clwojick 1. Keep your eyes peeled for some upcoming posts! I will be tagging everyone in all sorts of posts regarding the event. We‘ve changed some things up this year, so please ask questions if you need clarification on anything. I understand there is a lot to take in, especially for those of you who haven‘t joined in the games before. Just take it in stride and participate as much or as little as you want to. 8mo
Clwojick 2. I cannot STRESS this enough. DO NOT let the event stress you out! Please do not worry about not participating enough or gaining enough points! Sure, it‘s a competition and the points are there to add some added incentive to read, but the holidays are stressful enough as it is. Participate when you can and just have fun with it! There is no judging here, we just want to spread some holiday cheer, and read with our favourite people. 😍 8mo
Clwojick 3. We will have two buddy read options. You can choose to read either one, for the 50pt bonus. As with #scarathlon, if you choose read both, only the 1st will gain you the 50pts. The 2nd book will be counted as a holiday read, and will count for 25pt. Those books will be tagged next in the comments. 8mo

Clwojick 4. The #TeamMovie this year is How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and will be worth 25 points. All other holiday/winter movies or tv episodes that you watch will be worth 5pts. Holiday podcasts also count for 5pts this year. (edited) 8mo
Clwojick 5. I will make another post about it later, but I know you‘ll be asking, so I‘ll confirm it now. Yes, Readathon points will be stackable again. This means for every Readathon event that you are participating in, you can gain 10 points for every hour read. For example, if you are participating in 3 different readathons at the same time, and you read a Xmas book in 6 hours, the point breakdown is as follows ⬇️ 8mo
Clwojick Xmas/winter book = 25 points. 6 hours read at 10 points per hour = 60 points. We then multiply (or stack) 60 x 3 as we participated in 3 different reading events. In total, that one book can get you 205 points! ⬇️ (edited) 8mo
Clwojick The points can stack up really fast if you‘re willing to take the time to calculate your Readathon points, but again… no pressure! You do what works for you. Some people go HAMM on the readathons, and others only join a couple. 8mo
Clwojick 6. As for which reading events qualify for stackable points… we like to leave that to you guys to decide. The readathons do NOT have to be hosted on Litsy. Many of you participate in events hosted on Instagram, Twitter, goodreads, YouTube and reading blogs and that‘s totally fine. Year long reading challenges/events like #popsugar #readharder #pickyourpoison #unreadshelf and #LitsyAtoZ also count. As well as #bookspinbingo and #BFC21 8mo
Clwojick I think that‘s all I will put in this post for now, but come back to this comment section if you have any questions, as the event posts come in. ❤️ Welcome again guys, I‘m so happy to have you on my team! 8mo

TiminCalifornia Looking forward to my first #WinterGames - Thanks for being the team leader for #MistletoeManiacs! 8mo
Clwojick @BeeMagical sometimes the dates of readathons overlap. There are a ton of month long ones that generally happen in December. So if you do #BookSpinBingo that‘s a reading challenge, if you do #BFC21 that counts as well, and then say you join in on one of @Andrew65 monthly 9 day readathons. 8mo
Clwojick @BeeMagical So if the book you read is on your #bookspinbingo list, and you read it during the 9 day readathon, that would count for all three, since #BFC and #BookSpinBingo run all month long. Hopefully that makes sense. 8mo
Clwojick @BeeMagical here is a list of the December readathons. We will continue to add to it as more pop up, but you can see how many are month long, and how others dates overlap. https://docs.google.com/file/d/1OXwUDgNmBPktCIn6oMPeNSlz7TRMI_G1/edit?usp=docsli... 8mo
KristiAhlers Yay! This is my first book game and I‘m super excited! 8mo
Andrew65 The 9 day #DashingDecember Pick Your Own Goals Readathon will run from Saturday 11th December - Sunday 19th December. 8mo
Andrew65 Then we will have a special end of the year and see in the new year 6 day #20in4 Readathon which will run from Wednesday 29th December - Monday 3rd Jan January. Last 3 days of the old year and first 3 days of the new year. 8mo
Andrew65 Also thinking of hosting a month long #ProgressitDecember Readathon where people progress any series or authors they are reading. 8mo
freeatlast1137 Yay! I‘m excited! 🎄 8mo

keys_on_fire @Clwojick Will do! Thanks, I‘m so excited!! 7mo
Clwojick @keys_on_fire ❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥 7mo
keys_on_fire Does trying to finish the BOTM reading challenge count as a readathon? 7mo
Clwojick @keys_on_fire reading those books can definitely count towards any Readathon, but if you want to count them as a specific reading challenge you definitely can as well. I‘m sure other people are reading BOTM this December, so you could always host a BOTM readathon too! Whatever floats your boat! 7mo
Clwojick @JenlovesJT47 @RedxoHearts Welcome to the team guys! 7mo
JenlovesJT47 Thank you!! 🤗 7mo
RedxoHearts @Clwojick Yay! Can't wait :) 7mo
Clwojick @WeirdAtHeart @MartinaLove Welcome to the team! 7mo
Allydanielle88 I'm wondering how to show doing the workout challenges. Do we just make a post saying we did them? 7mo
Clwojick Yeah, or you could just add the points to your weekly total. You don‘t have to make a specific post about them. Or since most of the workout challenges are related to movies, you could include the points in any movie posts you make. Some people do one post a week with all the movies they watched that week. Whatever works best for you. @Allydanielle88 7mo
Pageturner1 very excited! my first time. get to watch one of my favorite Christmas movies too! 7mo
TheBookHippie Yay❄️❄️❄️ 7mo
RayHallucinogen @Clwojick Thanks! Let's do this! 7mo
