Alice in Wonderland Collection

If you didn’t already know I am obsessed with Alice in Wonderland. I thought it was about time to share my collection. I hope at some point to take better pictures and I am sure I missed some of my Alice themed items. Like I know I forgot my mug, my water tumbler (its at work)  and my jewlery. I will be update pictures as my collection grows.

Down The Read-A-Thon Hole Challenge | TBR

 

The time has come my little friends to talk of many things, of books, and blogs and readathons, of blogiversaries!

With my 5 year blogiversary quickly approaching I thought it would be fun to host a Read-A-Thon. With my obsession with Alice in Wonderland I thought it would only be appropriate to make it an Alice in Wonderland themed read-a-thon. I reached out to some other book bloggers to help me with this because I love getting others inputs and sharing the love. 

 

WHAT IS THE DOWN THE READ-A-THON HOLE CHALLENGE  ?

The  Down The Read-A-Thon Hole Challenge runs from Thursday, February 1 to Thursday, February 15. During this read-a-thon you will select books to complete a bingo card, with each box earning you points as well as a bingo. In addition to the main challenge, you will have opportunities to earn even more points by participating in the themed bonus challenges using a blog/twitter/instagram.
