Off the Grid readathon

Off the Grid Readathon January 11th to 13th

Hey guys this is created by http://@shanah over at https://bionicbookwormblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/17/off-the-grid-readathon-2019-dates/#more-16762 

and http://I Should Read That 

 We did our first one in October of this year and have been so excited to continue! The theme of this readathon you ask?? Go “Off The Grid!”. So many times we set aside a block of time to read and we end up spending the vast majority of that time getting distracted by our phones and social media. So – the point of this is to spend 3 days where we set our phones and other distractions aside and JUST READ! It sounds easy…… but it’s more difficult than it seems! When you have 72 hours to read, and you’re actively trying to stay away from your phone, you realize just how often you distract yourself. We plan to do 4 readathon’s a year so that you can get some practise in and keep focused on those books!

What do you need to do to participate? Not much lol! This is a fluff-less readathon. There are no challenges, themes, buddy reads (although that might be a good idea!). Trust me when I say that staying away from your distractions will be challenge enough! We will be doing a Twitter chat at the end of each day so that we can talk about our progress though. Since there are people from many different time zones, there won’t be a specific time set aside for this as of yet.

Here is the information that you guys need to know about the readathon.

Now for my TBR for this weekend, I am going to try and finish 3 books and start a 4th book. This is what I plan to finish

Furyborn (Empirium, #1)
What the book is about:
The stunningly original, must-read fantasy of 2018 follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.

When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.

One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable–until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other.
Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1)
What the book is about:
A cursed girl escapes death and finds herself in a magical world – but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination

Morrigan Crow is cursed. Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she’s blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks–and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on her eleventh birthday.

But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man named Jupiter North appears. Chased by black-smoke hounds and shadowy hunters on horseback, he whisks her away into the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor.

It’s then that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city’s most prestigious organization: the Wundrous Society. In order to join, she must compete in four difficult and dangerous trials against hundreds of other children, each boasting an extraordinary talent that sets them apart – an extraordinary talent that Morrigan insists she does not have. To stay in the safety of Nevermoor for good, Morrigan will need to find a way to pass the tests – or she’ll have to leave the city to confront her deadly fate
The Devil's Thief (The Last Magician, #2)
What the book is about:
In this spellbinding sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Last Magician, Esta and Harte set off on a cross-country chase through time to steal back the elemental stones they need to save the future of magic.

Hunt the Stones.
Beware the Thief.
Avenge the Past.


Esta’s parents were murdered. Her life was stolen. And everything she knew about magic was a lie. She thought the Book of Mysteries held the key to freeing the Mageus from the Order’s grasp, but the danger within its pages was greater than she ever imagined.

Now the Book’s furious power lives inside Harte. If he can’t control it, it will rip apart the world to get its revenge, and it will use Esta to do it.

To bind the power, Esta and Harte must track down four elemental stones scattered across the continent. But the world outside the city is like nothing they expected. There are Mageus beyond the Brink not willing to live in the shadows—and the Order isn’t alone in its mission to crush them.

In St. Louis, the extravagant World’s Fair hides the first stone, but an old enemy is out for revenge and a new enemy is emerging. And back in New York, Viola and Jianyu must defeat a traitor in a city on the verge of chaos.

As past and future collide, time is running out to rewrite history—even for a time-traveling thief.

Here is the book that I plan to start during this readathon

Spy Glass (Glass, #3)
what this book is about:
An undercover mission leads to danger, adventure and an impossible choice.

After siphoning her own blood magic in the showdown at Hubal, Opal Cowan has lost her powers. She can no longer create glass magic. More, she’s immune to the effects of magic. Opal is now an outsider looking in, spying through the glass on those with the powers she once had, powers that make a difference in the world. Until spying through the glass becomes her new power. Suddenly, the beautiful pieces she makes flash in the presence of magic. And then she discovers that someone has stolen some of her blood – and that finding it might let her regain her powers. Or know it could be they are lost forever.

If you guys are joying what do you guys plan to read I would love to know thanks
