Pixarathon 2020 TBR

My reading hasn't been amazing so far this year, and although I have had every intention of reading, I just haven't been too excited to read. I've been spending my time doing other hobbies, like playing The Sims and doing Diamond Painting, which hasn't left much time for reading. I also fall into the Twitter hole, and spend hours scrolling when I should be spending time reading.



When I saw that Lily was hosting a Pixar themed readathon in July, I knew that I HAD to participate. I love movies, and I particularly love Pixar, and so reading books alongside some of my favourite books immediately peaked my interest. There are a total of 14 prompts for the readathon, and although I don't think I will be able to read all the books on my list, I've picked a book for each prompt. I also plan to watch the movie associated with the prompt once I have read the book. I feel like this gives me a little bit more incentive to keep reading!


I will be keeping track of all the books that I am reading in my digital bullet journal. I will be updating my twitter throughout the readathon with what I have been watching and reading, so make sure you follow me over there if you would like be kept updated. I will also be trying to join in reading sprints over there, and getting involved in discussions. There may even be a few giveaways throughout the month!

Before I keep rambling on, let's get into the rules of the readathon, and of course the list of books that I will be attempting to read. I have created some graphics for my digital planner, but for those who cannot use images, I will also type out all the details.

THE RULES


Pixarathon is a month long readathon for the full month of July 2020. This means you have from the 1st - 31st of July to read as many prompts as you can. You can read books in any order, and just read however many you are able to read. There is a ranking system for the amount of books that you complete too!

Here are the main rules:

- Anything that counts on Goodreads, counts for this readathon. This means you can read any format of book, and any length, as long as it can be found on Goodreads.

- One book fulfills one prompt. This means you can't use one book for multiple prompts, and to complete all prompts you need to read 14 books.

- If you manage to complete all the prompts for the 15 movies, you can then go back and read from the prompts again. You cannot read two books for one prompt until you complete all the original 14 prompts though.

There are not too many rules for this readathon, which I love. I sometimes find the rules of a readathon too restricting, but Lily has even said your TBR isn't set in stone, and you can switch out which book you are reading for a prompt at any time.


Rank Tracker



As well as following prompts, there is also a fun rank tracker so you can keep track of how big of a fan you are of Pixar. I also think this is a great idea as it will push you to read more to get to the next rank. 

0 BOOKS 
I don't watch cartoons

1 BOOK 
Fake fan

2 BOOKS 
 Bandwagoner 

4 BOOKS 
 Newbie fan

6 BOOKS 
Casual fan

8 BOOKS 
Loyal fan

10 BOOKS 
Pixar > Disney

12 BOOKS
 Super fan

14 BOOKS
 Actually obsessed

15+ BOOKS 
You probably stalk the actors idk

28 BOOKS 
You are actually Pixar


If you are taking part in the readathon, what rank do you hope to get to?
I know that I want to at least get to Loyal fan, but would love to get to 10 books so I can have the Pixar > Disney rank.


THE PROMPTS AND BOOKS


I have created some graphics to show all the books that I hope to read, which you can see below. But also wanted to type out the prompts and my choices for those who cannot see the images, or just prefer them as written text. As I said, there are 14 prompts, so I won't go into lots of detail on each book as otherwise this post will be really long, but I will add a link to the books on Book Depository for you in case you want to read up more. If you decide to purchase a book with my link, I also receive a little bit of commission which helps me pay for the costs of my blog and YouTube channel. (It is no extra cost to you)
