Hey y’all. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been in a bit of a reading/blogging/everything slump. I’m working from 8–5 with an hour and a half of commute each way…and I’ve been dying a little inside. BUT I’m hoping to fix that and maybe this readalong will help me make it through my TBR!
You may be asking, “What’s the Make Me Read It Readathon, Carlisa?” Well, I’m glad you asked, kind person. It’s a readathon hosted by Val at the Innocent Smiley (click on the link for the sign-up post) where our audience picks what we reads. The title kind of explains itself, actually. Here’s the full description from Val:
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
