Dewey’s Reverse Readathon July 2022

I’m excited for the Reverse Readathon once again and I’ve taken part in it since 2018.

The books I’ve chosen this session are.

Small Town Big Magic (Witchlore #1) by Hazel Beck

and The Second First Chance: A Novel by Mona Scroff.

Both are books that I’m on blog tours for. Small Town Big Magic will be on my blog on August 6 and The Second First Chance will be on my blog on July 31. Both (and other books) are part of the same blog tour, the Harlequin Trade Publishing August 2022 Romance Blog Tour.

The Readathon doesn’t start until 2AM my time but I’m so keen to start these books that I’m going to start early.

I’ll be updating my posts here, as well as on my Twitter@theglitzqueen and Goodreads account.

If you like my posts, feel free to suscribe to my blog and follow me on Twitter and Goodreads.


Opening Survey!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

Madrid, Spain

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

Both of them, but especially Small Town Big Magic.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

I’ll leave the snacks until tomorrow because it’s late here now. But I had some chocolate ice cream earlier.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I love makeup

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

I’m most looking forward to getting through more books on my list and I won’t do anything differently. I’ve taken part many times before and always enjoy the event.

I’m five chapters in to Small Town Big Magic and am enjoying it. As always, I’m using Voiceover to read out my NetGalley ebooks.

Mid-Event Survey!

What are you reading right now?

I’m over half way through Small Town Big Magic.

How many books have you read so far?

I’m still on the first one.

What book are you most looking forward to for the second half readathon? Finding out what else happens in Small Town Big Magic and hoping to get through as much as I can of The Second First Chance by Mona Scroff.

Have you had many interruptions? The interruptions were breaks I took and they were needed for things like eating and I watched some TV.. How did you deal with those? Just fitted them in.
What surprises you most about the readathon, so far? How much I was looking forward to it and how fast it’s going as always.


I finished Small Town Big Magic and am now starting The Second First Chance by Mona Scroff.


I’m on chapter 5 of The Second First Chance.


Chapter 9 of The Second First Chance and I hope to maybe get another chapter (or more) in before bed.

The Readathon is much-needed and has come at the right time in my life. Despite the heat, the event has been relaxing.

Closing Survey!

How would you assess your reading overall?


Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it?

Just went through my books

What was your favorite snack? Ice cream

Wanna volunteer for our next event? Stay tuned for the recap post! Yes, I’d love to do the event as a reader.
