Readathoning in May 2020

OMG there are so many upcoming readathons that restraining myself from joining most of them was a challenge in itself! I managed to trim my list to these four, though there’s also the monthly SeriesTF readathon (dates for May haven’t been announced yet), so actually I’ll be doing 5 readathons!


Page-A-Thon (month-long)

Page-a-thon is going for another round in May, to help us stay sane during these difficult times It is a casual readathon where the goal is pagecounts! There are teams (according to what season you were born in) and rules include reading shorts, graphic novels and also fanfiction! I am participating as a Summer!

Rules are in the spreadsheet

Optional challenges:

A colorful cover, meaning little to no black
A book where (one of) the main characters is not at home. They can be travelling, or on holiday, etc.
A book that makes you feel fuzzy feelings or just happy in general
A book dealing with an infection/virus/etc


Asian Readathon (month-long)

Like last year, I will be taking part in this readathon devoted to reading books with Asian characters or by Asian authors. Since I am behind on my Year of the Asian challenge, it will be a bonus. Last year, I did all the challenges with 2 books, but this year, I think I will do 1 book per challenge.

Challenges

    1. Read any book by an Asian author.
    2. Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who you can relate to.
      1. Ex: If you’re an immigrant you can read about an immigrant character; if you’re a woman you can read a book by another woman; etc.
    3. Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who is different from you.
      1. Ex:  If you’re straight you can read about a queer character; if you’re Japanese you can read a book by a Vietnamese author; etc.
    4. Read a book recommended by an Asian.
      1. Ex: Watch an Asian booktuber’s recommendations video; find books recommended by an Asian blogger; ask your Asian friend what book best represents them; have an Asian friend choose between 2 books on your TBR; etc.
  • OPTIONAL: Read “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng and participate in the #LittleFiresReadalong and #LittleFiresWatchalong (more information below) -> I won’t be doing this

 


Tome ToppleTome Topple (May 9-22)

I am excited for this because I don’t usually do Tome Topple, but this time, I finally got a copy of The Priory of the Orange Tree and I needed an excuse to dig into that tome!

Prompts:

1. The tome that has been on your TBR the longest
2. A tome audiobook
3. Tome that’s part of a series
4. A standalone tome
5. Read 1 tome
6. A tome featuring a AAPI main character and/or written by a AAPI author (for Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month)
7. Tome from a genre you don’t usually read
8. The tome on your TBR with the most pages
9. An adult tome


Grab button for Bout of BooksBout of Books (May 11-17)

I take part in nearly every Bout of Books and I usually aim for 7 books, but since this time it will overlap with TomeTopple, I am going for only 3 books

TBR

Angel Mage Serpent & Dove (Serpent & Dove, #1) The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)


Which readathons do you plan to take part in this May?

  1. There a couple of readathons on here I’ve never heard of before that sound really great! I’m also taking part in the Asian Readathon and I’m really looking forward to reading the books I’ve picked for it!
