Last year, I took part in the Make Me Read It Read-a-thon, and had a blast reading some of what people chose. I’m so excited to do the same this year – especially because I have a ton of ARCs I need to get to in August, since September is a big release month. Before I get to the choices, here’s some information about the readathon.
What is Make Me Read It Read-a-thon, and who hosts it?
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 runs from August 6th to August 13th, and you can start reading whenever you hit 12 AM in your time-zone.
Are you participating in this readathon? If you are, leave me a link in the comment section and I’ll visit, and pick what you should read. Let me know what you chose for me, and as always, thanks for stopping by and happy reading!
