Eeek! I spontaneously decided I wanted to join this readathon the day before it starts. Not ideal, especially not for a readathon that requires that people vote for the books you’re reading, but oh well, let’s try anyway. Even just a few votes will be helpful.
This readathon is hosted by Ely & Val.
It works like this
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 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. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
When is it happening?
The read-a-thon will take place from the 9th to the 16th of July in your timezone.
You can vote for the following books
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
- Binge by Tyler Oakley
- The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
- Unwind by Neal Shusterman
- Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
- The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I’ll probably go with 3-4 of them, depending on how many votes I manage to get. If any…
Please only vote for maximum 3 books.
POLL IS CLOSED, COME BACK LATER FOR THE RESULTS
Let me know what you voted! Like I said, there’s only about 7 hours left until it’s the 9th in my timezone, so please help me out 😀 And if you’re like me, still frantically collecting votes, feel free to post a link to it and I’ll give you a vote as well.
