Make Me Read It Readathon: What Should I Read?

Hey everyone! One of my goals this summer is to take part in a readathon, so when I saw a ton of bloggers posting about the Make Me Read It Readathon, I decided to take part! I’m really excited because this is my first readathon (during school I have no hope of being able to take part in them).

The Make Me Read It Readathon is hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley and Ely @ Tea and Titles. It runs from July 9th to July 16th. Here are the rules:

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.

I have chosen a mix of books that I have had on my shelf for a while now and recent (or planned) purchases. For a lot of these books, I don’t know how much I’ll like them, which is why I have put off reading them, but I hate owning unread books, so I hope this readathon forces me to clear off my TBR shelf!

I need your help to decide which books to read! Please vote 🙂

You can choose up to 3

  1. I had to pick Eragon and Shadow and Bone because I’ve read them both and liked them, and then I picked These Shallow Graves because I’ve seen it around a lot lately and I really want to read it. 🙂 Thanks for voting!

  2. I chose Shadow and Bone! The second book in the series is one of the options in my poll. I really want to finish the trilogy because i’m dying to read Six of Crows, but I don’t want to be spoiled for the previous books. Good luck with the books you end up reading!

  4. VENGEANCE ROAD AND SHADOW AND BONE! So, so, SOOOOO good. It looks like you’ll be reading Shadow and Bone since it’s got the most votes so far and I really hope you like it. As for Vengeance Road, I don’t know if you’ll get around to it via this readathon, but definitely worth reading. I really just had a fun time reading it and hopefully, you will too. Good luck during the readathon!

    1. Thanks for voting! I am definitely going to end up reading Shadow and Bone–it’s killing it in the votes! I’m really excited because I probably wouldn’t have picked up the book myself, but I’m being pushed to…which was exactly my goal for this readathon!

          1. I did the same, but I finally took the plunge and it was so worth it! The only reason I wanted to read it was so I would understand Six of Crows better but now I’m worried Six of Crows won’t live up to the grisha trilogy 😂

  5. I have only read Shadow and Bone so I ended up voting for that. But I also have heard many great things about Firsts, so I voted for that one as well! And I also need to get to that book at some point.

    Anyways, thank you so much for joining! I can’t wait to see what books are picked!
