In case you didn’t know, I’ve participated in some readathons over the past few weeks.
The first wasn’t too fancy, just some challenges Mia and I created for ourselves. The second readathon I joined in on was Summerathon, and I ended up reading four books in the past weeks!
After reading, these were some of the books that I wanted to review and I thought to make it easier for everyone, I’d put all of my thoughts into one post in (slightly) more concise form.

I love readathons with all of my heart.
Not only because they motivate me to read more (which they absolutely do), but also because I love interacting with people online while we’re all working towards the same goal.
This week I’ll be participating in Summerathon, which starts on Friday, June 21st (today! A.k.a the summer solstice!) and ends on Thursday, June 27th. Check out this video if you want some more information!
Here is my TBR for it! I’m going to try to fill all the challenges, which, if I do, will mean I’ve read five books in less than a week, which I haven’t done in at least a year.

Today, I’m cleansing my bookshelves.
I have one bookshelf in my room, and it’s starting to really fill up. As such, it’s time for another unhaul.
I’ve talked about some tips to unhauling your books on my blog before, but it’s been a while since I’ve practiced what I’ve been preaching. So, I figured I’d use some common excuses us bookworms make for keeping a book to pick apart my shelves a little bit. For each excuse, I inserted a book from my shelf that fits under that category that I am finally saying goodbye to.
I’m not saying you have to an unhaul the books that fit into these categories, but it might be a good idea to re-evaluate whether you really need it, especially if you’re already looking to free up some bookshelf real estate.

I’m not a huge TBR person.
It’s the mood reader in me. When I make a TBR, I’m probably less likely to read any of the books on there, you know, in the spirit of rebelling against the system.
However, this month will be an exception for two reasons:
- I’m doing a little readathon with Mia @ Pen and Parchment with specific prompts from Monday, June 3, to Sunday, June 9, so that will help keep me on a TBR!
- Since it’s Pride month, I want to work on reading some of the LGBTQ+ books on my shelf.
So without further ado, let’s get right into it! I’ll start with Mia and I’s readathon TBR.
