Hey everyone! So, this is late and last minute, but yesterday evening I found out that the Cram-a-thon was this week! It started yesterday, June 10th, and runs through June 17th. I don’t think I’ve ever participated in the Cramathon before, but I’ve seen others do it, and it always looks like so much fun. So, even though I’m joining late and last minute, I’ve decided I’m going to do it!
The goal of the readathon is to finish 7 things in 7 days – so y’all already know I won’t actually be able to complete this. 😉 That being said, I’m going to try my best to read as much as I can! There’s also challenges to help base your TBR pile on. Being that I joined last minute, I haven’t put too much thought into what I’m going to read, but I’ve gathered some that fit the challenges, and they will be my tentative TBR, unless I change my mind on any of them.
Alright, here are the challenges and the books I’m hoping to read this week!
1. A predicted 5 star book
For this one, I’m going with Sanctuary by Meg Cabot! I pretty much love all of her books as it is, but I especially love this particular series. I’ve given all these 4 or 5 stars, so I have no doubt that I’m going to love this one as well!
2. A book that’s out of your comfort zone
I very rarely read poetry. I did read Amanda Lovelace’s first book, The Princess Saves Herself in This One, though, and I did enjoy it. So, I’m going to give her second book a chance, too!
3. A book that’s been on your TBR for a long time
I have to go with Fire and Ice for this one. The Warriors series is one of my sister’s favorites, and she’s been encouraging me to read them for years! A while back I did read the first book, Into the Wild, and really enjoyed it. So, I know I’ll love this one, too. It’s just one I keep putting off!
4. A LGBTQ+ Ownvoices book
I started Before I Let Go right before the cramathon started, and I didn’t even realize it was an ownvoices novel until looking into what to read for the readathon. So, I think that turned out pretty perfectly since I’m starting this readathon so last minute!
5. Something that’s not a standard novel
Goldie Vance is a graphic novel, which is also something I don’t read too often. I think this looks like such a fun and mysterious series, and I cannot wait to read it!
6. A book with your favorite color on the cover
My favorite color is pink, so I went with The Borrowers for this challenge. I think it’ll be the perfect book because it looks like so much fun, and it’s small, which is exactly the kind of book I need for this readathon!
7. Read seven books
I don’t have anything picked out for my 7th book yet. If I somehow, miraculously, am able to read all of these books in 7 days and have time to read something else, I can assure you that, whatever it is, the book I pick will probably be an extremely short story!
And that’s my TBR! Wish me luck! Be sure to let me know what you’re reading if you’re participating in the Cram-A-Thon, too.
Thanks for reading!
