Hello everyone! I was browsing Aimal’s amazing blog when I came across this read-a-thon that interested me. It is hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles, and Val @ The Innocent Smiley and the purpose is to read as many books as you can within the given timespan–except the books are chosen by YOU! Here are the instructions, if you’re interested too:
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.
Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers/bookstagrammers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
The read-a-thon starts August 6th at 12 A.M. depending on your time zone and ends a week later, on the 13th. Because I don’t think I can read more than 2 books, I’m adding 5 books to this poll that you all can choose from.
*Unfortunately, polls are not working on my blog right now, so please comment down below which book you want!*
- Salt To the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
- City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson
- Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
- Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
I hope this read-a-thon will be a success–please vote! Let me know if you’ll be participating as well!
