October is my favorite month for many reasons. My wedding anniversary is the 28th, it’s spooky season, the weather finally gets that chill and becomes all cozy to name a few but there is also the amount of readathons that take place. There has got to be a stat somewhere saying there are more readathons in October than any other month. I am planning on taking part in 5 which is probably too many readathons. My goal is to over lap as many books as I can for all of them which may or may not work but we shall see. Hopefully blogtober will be successful this year too but ya know who knows I tend to mood blog.

LATINX BOOK BINGO 9/15-10/15
Latinx Book Bingo is hosted by sofiainbookland and guerrerawr in celebration of Latinx Hertiage Month. The goal is to read books by Latinx authors for all the prompts. I know I know this has already started but guess who is behind in all the things? There is still time though so that’s what counts.
BLACK BRIT ATHON 10/1-10-31
LATINX-A-THON 10/6 – 10/15
The prompts are
- Read a short work (poetry, short stories, picture books)
- Read a spooky book

I know I said it was a lot. If you’re looking for any readathons to do I hope you’ll join me. If you’re already doing some, which are you doing? Got any bookrecs for these? I’m always open for more books to add to my tbr.
