This year one of my goals is to participate in more read-a-thons. I’ve tried a couple in the past, but I generally don’t end up reading any more than I usually do. When I saw Chandler Ainsley’s announcement for the Backlist Read-a-Thon I knew this was a great one for me to start with, since my unread books far surpass my read books.
This read-a-thon runs from March 9th – March 15th, so please join in if you’re interested!
The prompts, and my selections:
- Read your shortest backlist title: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
- Read a book on your backlist that intimidates you: Beautiful And Damned by Robert M. Drake
- Read a book from your backlist that someone recommended to you: The Dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
- Read a backlist title that you are the most excited about: My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
- Read a diverse backlist title: Sissy by Jacob Tobia
- Read a backlist title with blue on the cover: Renegades by Marissa Meyer
I obviously don’t plan to read all of these in a week, but I would love to at least start most of them and get invested in them so that I’ll continue once the read-a-thon is over. I’ll be updating my progress on my twitter and I plan to post a wrap-up once we’re through. I hope you all join!
