One Week Commitment to Read All the Books...

Make Me Read Read-a-Thon 2017 on Reading List




Did you see that list of books that were gathering dust on my bookshelves and TBR list?  The books I've collected because I want to read them, and then for different reasons I can't even remember, I never pick them up.  It was like the blogging world knew I had such a problem - probably because a ton of us bibliophiles have this issue- and this week long challenge just popped up! Alright, alright, it's been around for a couple of years, but I am just now finding it.

Alright... I'm sure you're confused... so the Make Me Read It Read-A-Thon is the brilliant brain child of Ely and Val. The idea is that participants make a list of the books that have been sitting there on your shelves, or on your to-be-read (TBR) list and you commit to reading as much as you can in one week in an attempted to lessen those dust collecting books. You can pick from your own home library, ebooks, or the library even.


Make Me Read Read-a-Thon 2017 on Reading List



The Read-A-Thon is August 6, 2017- August 13, 2017.

Now, how do you decide which books to read during this reading sprint?  Your reading buddies pick!  So below you will find a little poll to vote on my list - and I'll start with the most popular and move through it according to the votes - so please help me out.  And if you want to participate, I'd be more than glad to vote on your list!  Just let me know where to vote!

I'll make sure to keep you all updated on Instagram and Facebook... and then I'll do a summary here.  I hope a few of you will join in!  Maybe we can cheer each other on, well when we aren't reading like fiends.

    1. It's the second book in a series I've been waiting to finish because I've been told some didn't like it and I'm afraid I won't like it anymore... even though I loved the first one... but we'll see - thanks for voting!

  9. I voted for Illusion by Martina Boone! Compulsion is on my list! I actually got Compulsion at a book event when it released, and I STILL haven't read it... Here's hoping it's one of the top books in my poll so I get to read it. :)
