It is time to mark my calendar for another HoHoHo Readathon hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer. My third if I counted correctly. The thon encourages all readers to read as many Christmas´ or winterly themed books as we can. And there will be fun events, contests, prizes, and other things.

My list of books for this readathon is short, at least so far. And hopefully, the Christmas mood will sweep all over me.

Ninth Annual Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon

This year, the #HoHoHoRAT will begin at 12:01 am Thursday, November 18th, and will end Monday, November 30th at 11:59 pm in your time zone.

That´s twelve days of reading with two weekends wrapped in-between!

We can choose between holiday reads, winter books, yuletide murder mysteries, naughty & nice romances, and holiday horror. Whatever your mood chooses from the mentioned counts for this Ho-Ho-Ho-Readathon. Any format counts. Audiobook, library book, eBook, old book, or new book. With or without the hot chocolate. Follow your mood and have a great time!

Readathon Rules & Guidelines
-Link-up! It is unnecessary to link to goal post but of course, Kimberly loves them. Just link to the social media platform you will be using to track your reading. It can be your blog, your Goodreads Shelf you create – labeled HoHoHo2021, or any other account. (Kimberly must be able to see it. So be sure you are friends there).

-Declare your intentions on your blog or through social media. Be sure and link back to her post #HoHoHo Readathon Sign-Up over at Caffeinated Reviewer. The linky will close November 24th, so be sure to link up even if you will only take part for a few days.

Happy reading



  1. I'm excited for this readathon! It's my favourite of the year...

    1. I am excited too. Snuggling up with some hot tea or espresso and a good Christmas novel is something I like very much.

  2. I wish I was any good at readathons or I'd sign up. But good luck to you!

    1. Thank you, Stephanie. I will probably end up having read only one book for this readathon, but I don´t mind that *smile*

  3. That sounds fun I am already doing a Christmas challenge to read books between Oct 1-Dec 31 :) I may need to sign up for this one too!! Here is my link to the other Christmas challenge in case you want to check it out or see what I hope to read (if you need Christmas ideas), at the very bottom I added links to two other readers whose lists are very different from mine to add more variety!

  4. Good luck with the Readathon! Looking forward to getting into the Christmas Spirit!
