April TBR - Monthly goals & Readathons

My TBR for April is kind of out of control… Heh. Oops. My focus for April is heavy on getting caught up on the entirely too many ARCs I went a little koo-koo-bananas on requesting.

Thankfully,  Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon is on April 28th. Start time is 7 am on Saturday the 28th in my timezone, and it ends at 7 am on Sunday morning. My plan is to stay up as late as possible jamming all the books in my face until I pass out. ;) I plan to head up to a friend's cabin on Friday the 27th and get my read on with other booknerds, and come home on Sunday April 29th. I am super looking forward to hanging out with these nerds, and while I don't USUALLY do a TBR for the month, I'm making an exception for April because of said readathon and my goal to get caught up on ARCs. I did list 16 books below, though, and there are only 30 days in April, so I'm sure I won't finish ALL of these. (But does anyone want to offer me up a prize if I do? I can always use a little bribery- er, I mean, motivation…)

What are your reading goals for April? Do you make a monthly TBR? Have themes? Also, do you participate in any readathons?


  1. Oooh I have the e-arc for a Match Made in Bed too. I can't wait to read that one. Also... can it be readathon cabin weekend yet?!
