HEY GUYS!!! I’M JUST A LITTLE INSANE!!!
I have a bit of a problem… I HAVE NO SELF CONTROL. WHATSOEVER. As some of you might know (and if you don’t, you’re about to find out), I just signed up for a bibliothon. Ahem. Well. It runs from the 3rd to the 9th, and uh… I JUST FOUND ANOTHER ONE. The Make Me Read It Readathon is hosted by Ely @ Tea and Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley! And it looks super awesome. I’M SORRY I HAVE A PROBLEM.
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 etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the read-a-thon 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.
A VERY VERY HUGE PROBLEM. BUT I’M DOING IT ANYWAY BECAUSE BOOOOOOOOKS AND READATHOOOOOOOOONSSSSSSS!!!
I’m picking out ten books because although it’s highly unlikely that I’ll actually read that many… I like the number ten. It’s very cute and round and whatnot. For this read-a-thon, I decided to only list books that I own, as I have quite a few of those and they must be addressed. *nods* Let’s see those choices, shall we?
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (ebook)
- Egg & Spoon by Gregory Maguire (audiobook)
- Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
- Emma by Jane Austen
- A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
- So Close to You by Rachel Carter
- The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
- What Goes Around by Courtney Summers
I hope you see some familiar faces/titles! 😉 Please don’t vote twice; I know you can but I would appreciate it if you didn’t. Thanks! Also- feel free to vote for multiple books, whether they’re ones you read and loved or books you’ve seen around and are wondering what I’ll think!
Tell me what you voted for and why in the comments if you’d like! Toodles!
(I’m manually adding the votes from my Goodreads poll– they’re identical)
