2017 HoHoHo Readathon

Posted 7th November 2017 by Wattle in Challenges / 18 Comments

Itโ€™s that time of year when the holiday and winter-themed books hit the bookshelves. Itโ€™s also time to sign up for the Fifth Annual HoHoHo Holiday/Winter Readathon! hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer. Gather up your favorite cocoa, comfort foods, holiday music and books and join in the fun!

This years event will run from Wednesday, November 8th through Wednesday, November 15th at 11:59 pm.

This year I have chosen some fun, short Christmas and holiday reads. I’m aiming for 6 over the week (but will be happy to make 5!) Book covers will take you to their respective Goodreads pages ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweet & Sour and Holiday Outing by Astrid Amara are both m/m Hanukkah novellas, and I’m really looking forward to reading them. The others should be good fun too!

Oops I forgot, I also intend to take part in at least two challenges! And use the #hohohorat tag on Twitter to share my progress (and stalk everyone else’s!)

  1. A do enjoy a shirtless cowboy Christmas story too Bre, but who doesn’t. I’m incredibly jealous of all your festive reads, I’ll have to put on my adult pants and nab a few too and get into the Christmas spirit.good luck with the challenge <3

    • Haha that one’s next on my list ๐Ÿ˜‰ I must admit, one of the good things about adult is ALL the Christmas reads (when they’re not awful at least).

  2. I hope you can get a bunch of them read. I already read 3 Christmas books this year and am currently reading another one. Those two m/m romances on your list sounds promising too! Good luck with the readathon

    • Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m already well into the second novella and should finish it tomorrow! I love this time of year, it makes me feel so festive and I’m not a huge Christmas person lol

  3. I hope to get as much read as I can; I’m excited though!! I do love a good m/m story – I don’t think I’ve read any that feature Hanukkah – hope they are enjoyable!

    • Good luck! I’ve never read a Hanukkah one either and I am weirdly excited for them both, so I’m saving them for the weekend when I can just sit and read (in theory) ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I read the McInerney one today and it’s really just about 10 pages of short stories and the rest is an advertisement for her other books. I did like them though, and it was free! I’ll have to read more of her stuff.

    • They’re all super short novellas ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve read 4 of them so far, and have actually been disappointed at how short a couple of them are ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      I didn’t know Hanukkah books were a thing, I feel like I’m learning something by reading them!
