Summerathon TBR | 5 Books, 1 Week

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.

A Rare June TBR

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:

  1. 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!
  2. 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.

5 Books I Put Down that I’m Definitely (Hopefully) Going to Pick Up Again

How does one define DNF?

I always thought of it as a book I put down that I have no interest in picking up again. But recently, I’ve noticed people who DNF books with the full intention of picking them up at a later time.

Though that second one isn’t how I usually describe a DNFed book, that is the case with the books in this post. I know some people physically can’t stop reading a book to come back to it later, that they must finish it once it’s been opened. I, on the other hand, find it a little too easy to set something aside. So easy, in fact, that I let myself get distracted with new and shiny books even when I’m really enjoying what I’m currently reading. 

The following books are ones that I’m really liking so far (and have read a hundred or more pages of) but haven’t picked up in a while because, as I said, new and shiny. Ugh, it truly is a curse. I fully intend to finish reading these books at some point! Just… not… right this second.

My 2018 Thanksgiving TBR

Hello and welcome to my tentative return and Thanksgiving TBR!

Since school has been such a whirlwind this year, I’ve sadly only been averaging 1-2 books a month (bye-bye Goodreads goal). But that’s okay! As much as I love reading, sometimes my physics homework does have to come first.

However, since I have this next week off for Thanksgiving, and some extra time for a blog post, I thought I’d share some books I plan to read this week. Whether or not I actually get to them is the fun part of this mystery.
