Make Me Read It Readathon – TBR

First; thanks to everyone who voted on the poll! 726 votes in total, that’s amazing!

I’ve posted the results of the poll behind the cut below. I don’t know yet how many books I’ll try to read – last year I got through 6 or 7 but then I had a couple of audio books at the top to help me out. Which I don’t have this year X) But I will read the books in the order they have been listed behind the cut!

The Mandorian Chronicles (character teaser #18)

The Mandorian Chronicles is an upcoming series of 6 books written by me, classified as YA Fantasy. I am currently posting the first novel to a select few who have been asked to read and review it. If you are interested in reading this before I ever go into publishing it, let me know, either through the “review request” here on this blog or through my Goodreads account.

In order to give you all an idea of this book I am going to post teasers of the novel here.

NOTE: This is the last character teaser for the first book in the series. Once I’ve finished outlying the next book – which characters to introduce then and at what point – I will post more of these, but for now they will be on hold for a while. Nation teasers and snippets from the story will still appear on the blog.

Make Me Read It Readathon 2017 (time to vote!)

It’s readathon time! I’m so excited to see that this readathon is back this year as well – it’s definitely one of those that just makes me want to read as much as possible. Just as last year it is hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley. Below you’ll find the official information (directly from their pages) as well as some information about where to find my poll and what books you can choose from this year.

What is the Make Me Read It Readathon?

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/bookstagrammers 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.


This year the readathon takes place between the 6th and the 13th of August – which is perfect for me because that’s right before I start working again after the summer (I start on the 14th). It does mean that I won’t be able to use all of the last day for reading, as I will have to prep some stuff, but I will hopefully be able to read quite a lot.

Anyway; just like last year I’ve added quite a few books to the poll, just because I have quite a few to choose from. The poll is open from today (12th of July) to Monday (17th of July) and I’ll most likely add use the Top 10 as my TBR.

The poll is available here. You need to be a member of the group Polls for our Souls on Goodreads, but that is nothing but a quick click away 🙂

BookTubeAThon 2017 – TBR

It’s time for the readathon that started my readathon addiction – the BookTubeAThon 2017!

I’m really excited about the challenges this year and timewise this readathon should work perfectly for me. Unlike last year, however, I won’t do a video TBR because I just got back from the IQA European Games (i.e European Quidditch Championships) and I got a pretty bad sunburn on my face. So instead I’ll just post my pile on Instagram and you can find it below.

So a couple of days ago the challenges for this year's #booktubeathon were announced. I'm stoked! 😀😀 These are the books I'm hoping to read during this weeklong readathon. Some of them do work for multiple challenges, but I'm hoping to get through all of these and possibly a 7th book – but leaving that open 😊 Which book's intended for which challenge is written on my blog – link in my description 🤗 . . #bookstagram #instabooks #booktography #bibliophile #booknerd #bookaholic #bookgram #bookphotography #booklove #booklover #bookaddict #bookworm #tbrpile #tbr #booktubeathon2017 #booktubeathonTBR #theheartofbetrayal #maryepearson #thewrathandthedawn #reneeahdieh #theblackkey #amyewing #traitortothethrone #alwynhamilton #princessofglass #jessicadaygeorge #thescorpionrules #erinbow
