Are you ready for a Weekend made of AWESOME? Then you’ve come to the right place!

From the announcement post:

A cross between Bloggiesta, a Read-a-thon and a Write-a-thon, Weekends of Awesome are all about doing ALL THE THINGS. Each day of the weekend of awesome is devoted to catching up/getting ahead in a different area: blogging, reading and writing.

If you want to join in, you’re welcome to put together a goals post and feel free grab the button for your sidebar. You can also join in spur of the moment on Twitter by following #WeekendOfAwesome. Either way, let us know in the comments if you’re joining us so we can look out for you!

I have lots to get done in the reading and blogging areas so I’m going to focus on those. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my act together well enough to be able to participate in Camp Nano, so I won’t be writing – instead, I’ll be splitting what’s left of the third day between Reading and Blogging.

Friday: Blogging

  • Respond to ALL THE COMMENTS (I am embarrassingly behind on this)
  • Write up 3-5 posts for OWC
  • Type all handwritten content
  • Write backlogged reviews (Bewitched, Coraline media review)
  • Write and schedule as many discussion posts as possible
  • Update 3 pages of reviews to UBB format
  • Write up Guest Post for Briana (Pages Unbound)

Saturday: Reading

I am absolutely awful about following a list of books to read, so here is a sample of some of my choices. Priority (i.e. due at the library in a week or less) titles are in bold.


  • Finish Jenny Pox (J.L. Bryan), Power Under Pressure (Andrew P. Mayer) and Ready Player One (Ernest Cline)
  • What I Saw and How I Lied (Judy Blundell)
  • Demon King (Cinda Williams Chima)
  • Black Heart (Holly Black)
  • Crown of Embers (Rae Carson)
  • Shades of Earth (Beth Revis)
  • The Madness Underneath (Maureen Johnson)
  • Burn for Burn (Jenny Han, Siobhan Vivian)
  • Team Human (Justine Larbalestier, Sarah Rees Brennan)
  • Midnight in Austenland (Shannon Hale)

And that’s not even HALF what I have out of the library right now. SO MANY GOOD BOOKS and so little time! *pets the pretty books*

Sunday: Split

  • Finish whatever I didn’t get done off the blogging list
  • Read at least one more book

That’s how my weekend is looking! Leave a comment with a link to your goals post (if you have one) or a few of your goals for this weekend (if you don’t)!

Oh, and the number one goal this weekend? Don’t get distracted by the television! *glares at Veronica Mars, Eureka and Doctor Who, all calling my name*

  1. It’s so easy to get stack behind … I hope all will run as you hope and you get some things done! I’m sure it will feel awesome afterwards!

  2. Good for you making a list of things to do! I should do that, but I don’t want to feel overwhelmed …. BUT it’s a good idea.

    I have a thing on Sunday, but hope to get in AS MUCH AS I CAN in the next two days! I’m so far behind on my reader AND with my reading AND with my review writing …

      Yeah well, I’m a list person. It’s not so much whether I’ll make one as whether or not I’ll actually post it lol.

      I had stuff on Friday – it’s okay, whenever you can be around! I’ll probably try to sneak a few productive things in on Monday too, since I’ll be off work.

  3. Is this for every weekend? I missed it :(

      Oh goodness! I’m not sure I could handle this kind of concentrated productivity every weekend! Kristilyn and I just host one every couple of months – whenever we feel like we need a boost to catch up!
