2019 Readathons That Should Be on Your Radar

The best readathons taking place in 2019 that you shouldn't miss | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

Looking to add some fun into your reading routine? Readathons are just the thing for you! They usually take place online on one or across several social media platforms so you can connect with fellow readers and share your progress. They can be as short as 24-hour ones to elaborate month-long readathons. Some are low-key and don’t demand too much but some are quite challenging with a set of rules, points systems, progress trackers and giveaways too. Today I want to highlight some of my favourite readathons that I think everyone should take part in!

March Wrap-Up + April Reading Month (2019)

5 most anticipated April 2019 releases to add to your TBR immediately | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

It has been a mixed month for me with some good and some bad. Personally and reading-wise, I had the best month so far this year. However, work has become quite difficult to manage and I even had to skip a posting day. I’m feeling burnt out and I’m finding it hard to get the motivation to get up every day. I don’t see this pace slowing down any time soon as my family commitments will increase and work pressure as well in the coming months. However, I’m going to strive to put my health first despite everything, which hopefully will translate to more reading time! Anyway, let me put away my grand plans for the future and talk about how March went for me.

Top 10 Books I Want to Read This Spring (2019)

Check out my 2019 spring reading list and get inspired to create your own | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the hostโ€™s. The topic for March 19th, 2019 is: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR.

24 Book Recommendations for Read Harder Challenge 2019

Check out this list of amazing book recommendations to complete Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge 2019 | Year in Review by Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

I started falling in love with the wonderful bookish site called Book Riot from the time I started listening to their podcasts. It was an inevitable thing that I found myself taking up the Read Harder challenge by them this year when I was planning my reading. I also mentioned it in my post on the 5 best reading challenges to help you take your reading to the next level in 2019. In that post, I’d promised a recommendations post, so here I am today with 24 books that you can add to your TBR that will count towards Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge 2019. I must warn you that I’ve unfortunately not read every book on the list because some of the prompts are way outside my comfort zone, so I will indicate those with an asterisk.

5 Irresistible Reading Challenges of 2019

5 reading challenges to push you out of your reading comfort zone in 2019 | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

Reading is a purely solitary activity and I find that it’s quite easy to stick to a comfortable, predictable pattern. I personally read a lot of fantasy and very rarely do I reach for other genres because I know my reading tastes well. However, I feel like there are so many other amazing books waiting to sneak into my “Favourites” shelf who don’t belong to the genre I read the most. 2019 is the year I’ve decided to take the plunge and challenge myself to read out of my comfort zone. In order to accomplish that, I did a bit of digging around on the Internet and settled on five wonderful reading challenges that I want to attempt. Every month from now I will be giving recommendations for each of the challenges I mention in this post. I hope my list inspires you to push beyond your limits as a reader too!

October Wrap-Up + November Reading Month (2018)

October was one of the worst months of my life, to be honest. Not in terms of the books I read or anything related to that but personally. I don’t have a lot of words to share but I’m dealing with some really traumatic personal stuff, so I’d really appreciate some distance and understanding at the moment. It made me reconsider many things, go on a short hiatus at the end of October and I’ve been struggling since to get my life back to normal. This wrap-up may not be as detailed or wordy as usual mostly because I’m in the mood for brevity. However, sharing my love for books makes me feel marginally better, so I decided to write this post despite everything. With that sombre introduction out of the way, let me talk about the reading month I had and what I’m looking forward to in November.

July Wrap-Up + August Reading Month (2018)

The wrap-up is early this month as well (I tend to do it on the first Saturday of the next calendar month, for those of you unfamiliar with my posting schedule) because I have an exciting post lined up for next Saturday. I had a very good reading month this time around because I’ve been a bit more free lately. I participated in a grand total of 3 readathons already and have squeezed in a fourth that begins on 30th July. Needless to say, I need to get back to my reading because I’ve over-committed as usual, so let’s get straight to the post!
