I was at a loss when it came to TBRs this week. Luckily, there is Cramathon going on this week. As the name suggests, this readathon involves cramming books as the year draws to an end. It runs from December 26 to January 2nd.
▸ A book with under 200 pages
The Ocean At the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman sounds like the way to go. I am not scared or intimidated (lies! I am scared of this dude’s writing, because he sounds absolutely brilliant).
▸ A book with LQBTQIA+ representation
Ash by Malinda Lo is calling to me. This is going to ease me into checking out more retellings on my TBR (I am looking at you, Cinder).
▸ Shortest book on your TBR
I have shorter books than this, but I am going with either We Are Okay by Nina LaCour OR Shades of Milk and Honey Mary Robinette Kowal.
▸ Book that has your favorite color on the cover
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrow of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton has to be one of my favorite looking covers I own. And, I understand that this is about favorite colors, but I am twisting it a bit. This color combination is excellent.
▸ A book that was gifted to you
Technically, all my books have been gifted to me by my mom. So, I was thinking of going with History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. It’s time for some heartbreak and reflection in general.
▸ One of the hosts’ favorite short books / a book a friend recommends
Vicious by VE Schwab was one of Inge’s favorites this year. I want to check it out. A sequel for this novel is in the making. I need to catch up.
▸ Read 7 books
I have two other books to (keep) reading this week: Three Dark Crowns and A Madness so Discreet.
