Vote for My ‘Make Me Read It Readathon’ Reads


The Make Me Read It Readathon runs from July 9th to July 16th, starting and ending at midnight wherever you are in the world. It is hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley, and Ely @ Tea and Titles. If you want to participate, you have 11 days to sign up over here, and you can use the #MakeMeRead hashtag to interact with others taking part.

Since summer is well under way and I had to bump my Goodreads reading goal down to 50 from a 100, due to the time that college eats out of my life, I have decided to partake in as many readathons as possible. This way, I’ll be able to maybe get a head start on my reading challenge before I head off for my junior year- before textbooks and lectures become my life again.

I had never heard of this readathon before today when I came across Jess’s post (you should check out her blog; she posts quality!), and I thought it was such an ingenious way to read some popular books already on your TBR. Honestly, I have so many well-known books on my shelves that I haven’t gotten to because I’m scared they won’t meet the hype. But this readathon pushes me to do just that, depending on voting and what not.

More about the Readathon:
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 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.

Vote and Decide what I Read:


  1. Ahh I was TORN between Red Rising and The Raven King, but I just HAD to go for the latter hahah.

    Thanks for joining in! I updated the link on the linky so that it goes to this post 🙂 🙂

    • Gosh, thank you so much! 🙂 Do you mean what I use to do the gradient effect? Most of my editing/creating is done on GIMP 2.0. It’s a free Photoshop alternative that you can download online. It’s a great place to start if you’re getting into editing but Photoshop intimidates you. :3

  2. Yay, I’m so glad you decided to take part! Thanks so much for mentioning my post! Even though I could only vote for one, if the one I voted for doesn’t win, I still hope you’ll pick up The Darkest Minds, Legend, and Red Rising. I only read Legend but I want to hear your thoughts on the others :).

  3. You have so many good books on you list! I loved Splintered, but I still need to read the rest of the series. I hope that you get to read some good books during the readathon! 🙂

Penny for your thoughts?
