My awesome friend Ely along with the fabulous Val created this readathon. It runs from August 6 to the 13th. Basically, it involves listing books and then you vote on which ones I should read. (No pressure, but my future week is in your hands). I like the description these two ladies used, so I am going to pop it over here.
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.
It took me hours to come to a decision in terms of choosing options for this readathon. As I am in need of a change of genres, I am going for contemporaries (for the most part).
Here is my poll:
