2023 Enchanted Readathon - Let's Get Started!
Hello, fellow book nerds! Today marks the start of another readathon! And I couldn't be more excited!
I've been looking forward to this for weeks. I really had hoped to do this back in the summer like I did last year. But if you've been following my Instagram page this year, you might have noticed I've been posting less and I've shared that life has just been crazy busy. Both my personal and work life have been so busy! I work as a freelance graphic designer and this year my workload has once again increased compared to the previous year. And my personal life has changed in multiple ways. Both have impacted my free time for reading. I'm still reading but not nearly as much. Which I've found saddening. But I am happy with where my life is now. I just need to make time to read and work on my blog again!
And that's why I've been so excited about this readathon! And the timing couldn't be better. That workload I mentioned? It's finally slowed down. I wrapped up several projects within the past few weeks, so I finally have some free time again! I've been reading more lately
And my boyfriend has been super supportive too! He thought it was cute as I was working on creating the prompts and picking the books I wanted to read for them as well. He's actually the reason I added the Lord of the Ring inspired prompts! That's his favorite book series.
Now speaking of prompts...
So what am I planning on reading?
If last year was any indication, I'm sure I'll change my mind again on what I want to read for each of the prompts. But that doesn't stop me from still making a list! I very much enjoy making my reading lists. Here are my picks for this year's readathon!
