Summer Surge Read-A-Thon

Summer Surge Read-a-thon

Hey all, and happy Sunday! :] I have decided to take part in the Summer Surge Read-A-Thon that is happening over at Book Badger. The blog is run by the lovely Amanda, and it is one of my favorite blogs to read/follow. If you have not checked it out, now would be the perfect time to do so! I actually meant to get this post up sooner since the read-a-thon starts tomorrow, but better late than never! I will post my goals for the read-a-thon tomorrow as I'm still figuring them out, but for now here are the rules and how to sign up in case you're interested as well!

Read-a-thon Details

1) The read-a-thon will run from 14th July 2014 - 17th August 2014.
2) The sign-up linky will close on the 10th August, so sign up before then.
3) You don't need a blog to participate.
4) Any genre, format or length of book can be read for this read-a-thon. (Novels, Novellas, Anthologies, Extra Material etc.)
5) There will be a international giveaway for up to £15 worth of books from TBD.
6) There will be five read-a-longs you can participate in worth 5 entries each.
7) There will be five challenges you can participate in worth 3-5 entries each.
8) On 18th August, a wrap-up post of the read-a-thon will be posted on Book Badger.
This is where you can leave your wrap-up post links if you have one.


Most read-a-thons have read-a-longs that you can participate in and the Summer Surge Read-a-thon isn't any different. There is one read-a-long a week that you can take part in and at the end of each week, there will be a section in my In Bed With Badger post that will feature my thoughts on the book in question. For each read-a-long you take part in you will receive 5 entries towards the giveaway but you must have read the book during it's coinciding week otherwise points will be deducted. If you've already read any of the books listed below, you can change it for a book written by the same author instead.
The read-a-longs are as follows:

1) 14th July - 20th July: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick (Goodreads)
2) 21st July - 27th July: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (Goodreads)
3) 28th July - 3rd August: Defiance by C.J. Dougherty (Goodreads)
4) 4th August - 10th August: Doll Bones by Holly Black (Goodreads)
5) 11th August - 17th August: This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith (Goodreads)
There will also be some challenges along the way, you can read more about those HERE at the information/sign up page.
How do you join in?

1) Create a sign-up post, video or update on your platform of choice before 14th July to let people know you're taking part and what your personal challenges are if any. You must link back to Book Badger and include the read-a-thon button if possible. You can then add the url of this 'update' to Mr Linky down below and you're signed up! If at any point you want to remove yourself from the read-a-thon, just find yourself on the list of participants and edit or delete your entry.
2) The giveaway widget will be posted on the 21st July and will be open until 23rd August. This is where taking part in those challenges will give you a better chance of winning. You will have to provide proof of taking part in the read-a-thon to take part in the giveaway. The giveaway is International, as long as The Book Depository ships to your country.
3) If you have questions, don't be afraid to leave them in the comments, tweet me at @BookBadger_ or email at
4) Get reading and enjoy the read-a-thon!

 If you're interested, head on over and sign up as well. As I said, my goals will be up tomorrow. I'm super excited about this read-a-thon!
