I'm doing the Make Me Read It Read-a-Thon

I have got a unseemly amount of TBR books staring at me on my bookshelves.  Luckily, I started reading the wonderful blog of The Innocent Smiley and saw this challenge.  Here is how it works:

What Is This Read-A-Thon About?

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. 

So here is a look at the wonderful books I need to read:

Which one will you make me read first?  Do the Poll and see me obey your command!  There will be a tag #makemeread!
Polling ends On July 20th, at 8am.

  2. Yes, I love fantasy and royalty! A great combination.

  3. Go read ACOTAR! I love SJ Maas with all my heart and I swear that one will be worth it. ;)
