My MentalHealth-Athon TBR

I am super excited about this readathon. I've always wanted to do something like it. It is hosted by A Beautiful Chaos of Books.

What is it: A readathon dedicated to reading books about mental health and/or featuring characters who live with a mental illness.

When is it: Mentalhealth-athon is a month long readathon taking place between May 1st till May 31st

Who are the hosts:
Nicole from a beautiful chaos of books. Twitter is @beaut1fulchaos_ 
 Cait from Chaptercviii. Twitter is @chaptercviii 
Rachael from Rachael Marie Book Junkie. Twitter is @__Rachael_marie

How do I take part: You can take part in lots of different ways. You can post your TBR, for what you will be reading on your book blog or booktube channel or show what you’re be reading on Twitter or Instagram. Make sure you use the hashtag #mentalhealthathon so we can see your TBRs. The readathon’s twitter handle is: @__mentalhealth1

What are the challenges: I have created a bingo board with 15 different prompts to help you choose which books you read during the month. You can read one book, a line (Diagonal, horizontal or vertical) or the complete board. Here is the board:

The description of the individual prompts can be found here


Anyone who knows me knows my TBR is never set in stone. I am a mood reader and tend to change my mind. However there are a few challenges I do want to focus on. I have borderline personality disorder and bipolar II myself, so these are the challenges I will focus on completing. I'm probably not going to complete any rows because the topics that interest me most are scattered.

My OWLs Readathon 2019 TBR and Update

The O.W.L.s Readathon is a month long Harry Potter themed readathon hosted by Book Roast in April. 

The goal of the readathon is to choose a wizarding career and follow those prompts so you can meet the requirements at Hogwarts to go into that field. They vary in challenge so you can choose a career that is easier (meaning you have to complete less challenges) or harder (with more challenges). 

I chose the career Mind Medic because it closely resembles my own real life interest in mental health and because it is one of the harder challenges requiring 8 books to be read. 

You may notice that many of the books I have on my TBR are movies or television shows. This is not a coincidence. I purposely chose books that will help me complete my own 2019 Book to Screen Reading Challenge.

If you completed any Charms Extra Credit you can start a day early for each one you completed. I got one extra credit so can start reading today.

I changed up my TBR and am still working on my credit but I wanted to share the books I actually read for the O.W.L exams for Mind Medic.
