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



The Make Me Read It Readathon is chugging along still... and I'm already behind... and break the rules... but you know that's life right?  We have to be flexible with our goals for the extras, and reading my crazy out of control TBR (to-be read) pile just can't be the priority... even though I want it to be!

So the votes came in - I checked them officially on Saturday... and.... here's the top three... let's be honest, it'll be a miracle if I get through these three...


Make Me Read It ReadaThon check in



  1. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab is 464 pages...
  2. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is 485 pages...
  3. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge is 352...
So that means the goal is 1,301 pages in a week... but I also have to finish a couple of books for review (which I'm not counting for this challenge...).

That means I have to read about 186 pages a day... and on Sunday I read 115 pages of City of Bones...

Yep, that means I'm reading book number two first, and was short about 70 pages or so... but you know life...



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

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



The decision to pick up City of Bones before This Savage Song is because I'm buddy reading it with one of my "booksta-buddies" and it's a blast!  If you ever want a little help getting over a reading slump (where you just can't seem to find the desire to really dive into a book again) find a book reading buddy.  Another reason why, especially if you are book lover, you need to be on instagram following all the #bookstagrammers -- this is a community that you will love!



I am still putting up updates on Instagram though, mostly in my story... when life allows - and for this challenge I'm actually doing video check ins through my story!  So stop by and check them out, and send me a note of encouragement!!  I'm gonna need it.
