Bookending Winter #5 Holiday Season TBR/Christmas Readathon Update!

 


Today's prompt is provided by Imogen @ Imogen's Typewriter, and for it we will be taking a look at our TBRs that we want to get to around Christmas! 
Since I kind of already talked about it in my November Wrap Up, I thought I would just use this as a chance to update you on my progress for Amy's Christmas Readathon, since the TBR is the same anyway. 😊
Currently Reading:

The Snow Queen and Other Winter TalesBreadcrumbs 
Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3)I Was Here

Challenge prompts:
  • A book you can make a Christmas word out of the title and/or author's name. (Christmas, reindeer, mistletoe, bells, or jingle.) (The Snow Queen and Other Winter Tales spells reindeer.)
  • Read a book you've been putting off all year. (I was Here by Gayle Forman.)
  • An extravagant, sparkly, beautiful or decorative book. (The Snow Queen and Other Winter Tales by various.)
  • A book set in winter. (The Snow Queen and Other Winter Tales by various and Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu.)
  • A book with a white or light blue cover. (Breadcrumbs and The Snow Queen.)
  • A book with snow on the cover. (The Snow Queen and Breadcrumbs.) 
  • A book with the word snow, frost, ice or light in the title. (Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch and The Snow Queen.)
Progress: 

The Snow Queen- On page 124 of 736. (17%) (I have no idea how I'm actually going to finish this whole thing before the 31st. I didn't realize it was over 700 pages! I think the biggest book I've ever read was like 570. 😂😩 Halp.)

I Was Here- On page 97 of 270. (36%) (At least this one is pretty short, and it's interesting so far.)

Breadcrumbs- On page 72 of 312. (23%) (This is a middle grade so I know I'll be able to get through it quickly.) 

Frost Like Night- On page 50 of 496. (10%) (I've only read like 5 chapters, but I already know it's going to be one of my favorite books of the year. I just LOVE this series so much!)

TBR:

Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1)Between the Lines (Between the Lines, #1) 
RevolutionThe Always War

Challenge prompts:
  • A book you can make a Christmas word out of the title and/or author's name. (Christmas, reindeer, mistletoe, bells, or jingle.) (The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix spells reindeer and Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer spells bells.)
  • A book with a white or light blue cover. (Between the Lines and Pawn.) 
  •  A book that's been on your TBR since last year. (Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly.)


So that's my Holiday TBR and my Christmas Readathon progress! I SERIOUSLY need to figure out how to schedule reading time during the day cuz only reading a couple of chapters a night at like 1am before I go to bed is not helping me much. 😂

Stay tuned for another BW post on Saturday! This time I'm going to give you an updated tour of my reading review notebooks! 🎄
