What I have so far for my December TBR. A mix of holiday/winter reads and some books I didn‘t get to for #Scarathlon and the #FairytaleReadingChallenge.

#MistletoeManiacs #WinterGames2021
#WinterCosy #AVeryMerryReadathon

Clwojick Woohoo! Awesome collection! 2h
KristiAhlers That totally looks like a fun pile of reading happiness 56m

The 4th book in the Sonoma Witches paranormal mystery series. I read the 1st during #scarathlon & since they are quick e-book reads & enjoyable, I‘ve quickly worked my way through the series. This one is set during Winter Solstice & lots of witches are in Silverpool trying to raise demons. There‘s a couple of murders & Alma works with her former Protectorate partner to solve them. I like Alma coming into her powers & the various side characters.👍

My TBR is a lot leftover from the #scarathlon, but here‘s my #wintergames TBR! It‘s massive and I think I may get through like 6 books, but still! I like having options haha

Two Thousand Maniacs! | Herschell Gordon Lewis

Hello, and welcome to team #MistletoeManiacs! If you‘ve been tagged in this post, you‘re on my team. For those of you who are new here, my name is Cassandra and I will be your #WinterGames team captain. I am so excited to be reading with you this holiday season. With the #WinterGames fun only a few weeks away, I‘d like to discuss some event details in the comments below. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask down below as well! ☺️🎄

Clwojick 1. Keep your eyes peeled for some upcoming posts! I will be tagging everyone in all sorts of posts regarding the event. We‘ve changed some things up this year, so please ask questions if you need clarification on anything. I understand there is a lot to take in, especially for those of you who haven‘t joined in the games before. Just take it in stride and participate as much or as little as you want to. 2w
Clwojick 2. I cannot STRESS this enough. DO NOT let the event stress you out! Please do not worry about not participating enough or gaining enough points! Sure, it‘s a competition and the points are there to add some added incentive to read, but the holidays are stressful enough as it is. Participate when you can and just have fun with it! There is no judging here, we just want to spread some holiday cheer, and read with our favourite people. 😍 2w
Clwojick 3. We will have two buddy read options. You can choose to read either one, for the 50pt bonus. As with #scarathlon, if you choose read both, only the 1st will gain you the 50pts. The 2nd book will be counted as a holiday read, and will count for 25pt. Those books will be tagged next in the comments. 2w

Clwojick 4. The #TeamMovie this year is How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and will be worth 25 points. All other holiday/winter movies or tv episodes that you watch will be worth 5pts. Holiday podcasts also count for 5pts this year. (edited) 2w
Clwojick 5. I will make another post about it later, but I know you‘ll be asking, so I‘ll confirm it now. Yes, Readathon points will be stackable again. This means for every Readathon event that you are participating in, you can gain 10 points for every hour read. For example, if you are participating in 3 different readathons at the same time, and you read a Xmas book in 6 hours, the point breakdown is as follows ⬇️ 2w
Clwojick Xmas/winter book = 25 points. 6 hours read at 10 points per hour = 60 points. We then multiply (or stack) 60 x 3 as we participated in 3 different reading events. In total, that one book can get you 205 points! ⬇️ (edited) 2w
Clwojick The points can stack up really fast if you‘re willing to take the time to calculate your Readathon points, but again… no pressure! You do what works for you. Some people go HAMM on the readathons, and others only join a couple. 2w
Clwojick 6. As for which reading events qualify for stackable points… we like to leave that to you guys to decide. The readathons do NOT have to be hosted on Litsy. Many of you participate in events hosted on Instagram, Twitter, goodreads, YouTube and reading blogs and that‘s totally fine. Year long reading challenges/events like #popsugar #readharder #pickyourpoison #unreadshelf and #LitsyAtoZ also count. As well as #bookspinbingo and #BFC21 2w
Clwojick I think that‘s all I will put in this post for now, but come back to this comment section if you have any questions, as the event posts come in. ❤️ Welcome again guys, I‘m so happy to have you on my team! 2w

TiminCalifornia Looking forward to my first #WinterGames - Thanks for being the team leader for #MistletoeManiacs! 2w
Clwojick @BeeMagical sometimes the dates of readathons overlap. There are a ton of month long ones that generally happen in December. So if you do #BookSpinBingo that‘s a reading challenge, if you do #BFC21 that counts as well, and then say you join in on one of @Andrew65 monthly 9 day readathons. 2w
Clwojick @BeeMagical So if the book you read is on your #bookspinbingo list, and you read it during the 9 day readathon, that would count for all three, since #BFC and #BookSpinBingo run all month long. Hopefully that makes sense. 2w
Clwojick @BeeMagical here is a list of the December readathons. We will continue to add to it as more pop up, but you can see how many are month long, and how others dates overlap. https://docs.google.com/file/d/1OXwUDgNmBPktCIn6oMPeNSlz7TRMI_G1/edit?usp=docsli... 2w
KristiAhlers Yay! This is my first book game and I‘m super excited! 2w
Andrew65 The 9 day #DashingDecember Pick Your Own Goals Readathon will run from Saturday 11th December - Sunday 19th December. 2w
Andrew65 Then we will have a special end of the year and see in the new year 6 day #20in4 Readathon which will run from Wednesday 29th December - Monday 3rd Jan January. Last 3 days of the old year and first 3 days of the new year. 2w
Andrew65 Also thinking of hosting a month long #ProgressitDecember Readathon where people progress any series or authors they are reading. 2w
freeatlast1137 Yay! I‘m excited! 🎄 2w

Clwojick @keys_on_fire ❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥 5d
keys_on_fire Does trying to finish the BOTM reading challenge count as a readathon? 5d
Clwojick @keys_on_fire reading those books can definitely count towards any Readathon, but if you want to count them as a specific reading challenge you definitely can as well. I‘m sure other people are reading BOTM this December, so you could always host a BOTM readathon too! Whatever floats your boat! 5d
Clwojick @JenlovesJT47 @RedxoHearts Welcome to the team guys! 2d

I haven‘t been completely active on Litsy I feel like (just mindless scrolling). Needed a break after #Scarathlon. But I‘m getting back into the flow.

Signed up for #WinterGames (was debating not signing up this year). I get seasonal depression usually (so dark and cold) and it messes up my reading. And of course, signed up for #NewYearWhoDis which I think I‘ve done every year. It‘s a great way to start my new year reading!

JenReadsAlot I so hate the early darkness... 3w
Clwojick Daylights Savings was just on Sunday, and it is SO dark, SO early now! 😭 It‘s pitch black by 6pm already. I hate this time of the year. 3w

I started this for #scarathlon last month, and am only now finishing it. So interesting! Larson is as great as expected at bringing this rather complicated time in Chicago history to life. It‘s been on my TBR for a while, and I‘m glad I finally went for it! H. H. Holmes is as creepy as thought he might be 🔪 and now I want to do some touristing and see what‘s left from the Chicago World Fair 🏨🏛

EmilyRose If you visit Chicago after reading this, I should connect you with my sister. She LOVES the Chicago World's Fair and could probably recommend cool or little-known things to do and see 3w
Larkken @EmilyRose that sounds like so much fun! I may just do that 🤩 2w

Awesome job #TeamSlaughter! We managed to hold the lead! As always, it was such a pleasure to read alongside you guys. You all seriously crushed it this year, and I‘m proud of all of you! Thanks for making these events all that they are. Without the level of participation we get, they simply wouldn‘t be the same.🖤 Shoutout to our highest point earner @TheSpineView - please email me at clwojick@live.com to discuss your prize! (Cont)⬇️

Clwojick Thanks to you guys, I have a HUGE list of thrillers, mysteries, and true crimes that I have to check out! I‘m sure some of them will be read during next years #Scarathlon! Lastly, I hope you‘ll all consider signing up for the #WinterGames if you haven‘t already! I‘d love to get my Christmas read on with the lot of you!🤶🏻 4w

Woohoo! Even with a chaotic week, my total points for week 4 of #scarathlon for #teamslaughter come to 5,210! I'm pretty proud of that, even if I didn't get to read as many spooky books as I wanted - the spooky season will just be continuing into November for me! (Along with fantasies, MG, and nonfiction)

Thanks to @Clwojick for being an awesome team leader! See you all for #wintergames

rjsthumbelina If my math is right (a big 'if' bc it's 1:15am after the most stressful day I've had since my son was born), my total points for the entire #scarathlon were 11,225! 4w
Clwojick You did fantastic this month! Thank you for joining us! 🖤 4w
