Make Me Read Readathon

So I love readathons and this is a new one to me. It’s called the Make Me Read It Readathon and it’s hosted by Ely and Val. It runs July 9-16. You can still sign up and get ready! Here are the rules (from Ely):

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.

So please help me select what I’m going to read. I put 9 books on my list and I’m hoping to get to the top 4 books at least, if not more! 🙂 Vote below!

  3. I voted for Reign of Shadows because I haven’t read it yet but am so interesting in doing so! Good luck on the read-a-thon! 🙂

  4. Oh my goodness, For Darkness Shows the Stars!!! Okay, there are definitely some problematic things in that book, but I still really, really loved reading it. So even if it doesn’t win out, I hope you’ll manage to get to it soon! 🙂 Hope you have a grand time with the readathon!

  5. I’ve picked Rose under fire. Although I haven’t read it (or Code name Verity) I’ve heard wonderful things. Hope you enjoy the readathon and thank you for visiting Mareli Thalk Ink!

  6. I haven’t read any of these but I voted for Attachments. I’ve only read one Rainbow Rowell book and I’d really love to get around her other books. I hope you enjoy the books the end up on your tbr! 😀
