Catastrophe Read-a-thon [Announcement, Info & TBR!]

Catastrophe Read-a-thon [Announcement, Info & TBR!]

Hey Catastrophes!

Today I have an exciting announcement. I am going to be hosting the Catastrophe read-a-thon in February, as promised in my 19 Goals in 2019 post! If you want to know more or possibly join in, all the information is in this post, alongside my TBR.


The catastrophe the read-a-thon is centered around is the TBR Catastrophe! To help solve it we are going to be reading books that have been on our TBRs for too long.


14th – 28th of February. Two weeks of reading!


You can use this hashtag on Twitter, bookstagram or booktube if you’re sharing or participating on those sites! The hashtag is #catreadathon
