I will keep this list as updated as I can, checking dates periodically. Please let me know if I missed a read-a-thon or a date has been announced. 

  • Thank you so much for the list Molly! I’m so dissapointed when I miss a few reading challenge in 2016, but it won’t happen again in 2017 thanks to you! If life doesn’t get in the way, I will definitely join a lot of readathons next year! 😀

    • Yay! I’m glad! I try to update this list every month or two months, so more will be added as the dates or themes are announced 🙂
