Make Me Read It Readathon!

Posted June 21, 2016 by Stephanie in Readathon, Vote / 57 Comments

Val at The Innocent Smiley and Ely at Tea & Titles are hosting the Make Me Read It Readathon from July 9th-16th

What is this Readathon 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 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.

What books are on my list?

    Some great reads here. I love the idea of the read-a-thon and making people read books I love or am excited for! I’m really excited for The Female of the Species, so that’s one of my votes 🙂

  3. Whoa, so many great-looking books, I had trouble choosing which five to vote for! I hope the ones that end up being chosen are good ones, I want to read some of these myself. Good luck on the readathon!

  4. OH MY GOOOOOSH! YOU HAVE LIKE A BILLION GOOD BOOKS ON THIS LIST O_O HOW WILL I CHOSE JUST 5 XD? I was able to read The Thousandth Floor, and just so you know, IT’S AMAZING 😀 I actually havent read the rest, but they are on my TBR. You have a good line up I think 🙂 have fun and I hope you LOOOOOVE these books!

    • I haven’t heard much about The Thousandth Floor and when I was at BEA hardly anyone had heard of it, so I’m hoping that I love it and am so glad to hear that you thought it was AMAZING! Can’t wait to read it even more now! Thanks for voting!

  7. Hello! 🙂 I voted for A Shadow Bright and Burning and Three Dark Crowns because those are the ones I’ve heard of. And also voted for Vassa in the Night because I like the cover, haha!

  8. Oh my, you have such a great list up there! Since I don’t have my hands on any of them, I voted based on covers and blurbs. So I hope you enjoy the winning books.

  9. Wow so many great choices! I voted for The Female of the Species, because one of my friends is raving about it, and apparently it’s really good! And of course I voted for Vassa, A Shadow Bright and Burning, and The Thousandth Floor (one title I will always have trouble pronouncing ahahah).

    Thank you so much for joining! I can’t wait to see what books are picked!

  10. Ahh so many of these are some of my most anticipated releases! It was so hard to chose just 5 haha. I went with some I’m really inteested in though like Three Dark Crowns and The Female of the Species. Good luck with the readathon !!
