"The Make Me Read It Read-a-thon" Voting

The Official Read-a-thon Announcement:

Firstly, I'm lucky enough to be hosting this read-a-thon with my absolutely amazing/lovely friend Val of The Innocent Smiley. There's the possibility of another read-a-thon (focusing on WWII) later in the year, but we don't know if anyone would be interested? (Please tell us you'd be interested)

It's a week long read-a-thon to make sure you can all get through as many books as possible! The week it's running from Monday the 20th of July at 8:00am to Monday the 27th of July at 11:59pm. Like most read-a-thons, this revolves around your timezone. We'll be using the hashtag, #MakeMeRead on all social media. Remember to follow both Val and I on Twitter for updates!

What's this read-a-thon about? Welllll, if you're a blogger, booktuber, booklr, bookstagram-er or whatever else, I'm sure you've been told that you HAVE to read 'that' book. That's the premise of this read-a-thon...

Need more details? Here you go.

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 out of that list.

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. The goal is to read as many as possible.

I hope some of you are able to join in. I think it'll be a lot of fun, and Val and I will organise some exciting things for everyone to do during the week. I'll be posting my selections/TBR in about week. Don't forget to sign up in the linky below! And remember to check out Val's post too!

So I am putting up a poll for this read-a-thon and it would mean the world to me if you guys would vote!

What books should I read?

Rebel Belle
My Heart & Other Black Holes
Red Rising
The Wrath & the Dawn
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda
All the Rage
Fire & Flood

Join the conversation!

  1. It won't let me save my choice! :( I've voted for Simon vs the Homo Sapiens, as I'm curious to read your review.

    I can't wait for the 20th, as now that I've made my list and people have started voting, the books look even more appealing!

    1. Hmm.. I'm editing the poll right now, so hopefully that works. I'm excited to read it because I have heard a lot about it. I'm excited for the 20th too!

  2. I voted The Wrath & the Dawn because I've heard great things about it (and very few bad reviews) but I also feel like it'll be a memorable read :D

    1. Thanks for voting! I'm excited to read it because I have heard hardly any bad things about it and I love retellings.
