Thanks for voting in the poll for this readathon! I laid out all of my potential reads and you guys helped narrow my list down. I pulled some of the top books (more than I’ll actually read, to be honest) and will be reading them in order starting with the most-voted-for book.
Hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley /// July 9th through 16th
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.
Alright friends, here are the top books that your voting gave me. They’re ranked here by the number of votes they got so this will be the order in which I read them. There were a couple of ties in the voting, so I figured I would give a few bonus books just in case I get a lot of reading done. I may read 3-5 books in a normal week so it felt right to give a couple of extras!
I’m actually really excited about this potential TBR! I’ve been putting off a few of these for a while. I should have read a few last year, so it’s a great excuse to finally do it with this year’s readathon.

Rebel Belle was really fun! I need to continue on with that series now that it’s all published! I haven’t read The Fill-In Boyfriend but I just love Kasie West so I’m sure that’ll be a great book to start with!
I love Kasie West SO much. This is her only published book I haven’t gotten to yet!
Yay, one of the books I voted for made it into your top 5! I’m very excited to see what you think of This Shattered World 🙂
I can’t wait to read it! I’ve put it off for no reason 😛
That’s a pretty great tbr 😀 I hope you’ll enjoy Rebel Belle and Aristotle and Dante 🙂
That list looks lovely! The one I voted for made it. 😉 I hope you love The Fill-In Boyfriend. I am so excited for this readahton.
I’m excited to finally read that one!
YESSSS Aristotle and Dante made it!! And so did This Shattered World! And Smelly Houses—-I mean the Smell of Other People’s Houses!
This is such a great TBR. Wish you the best of luck with the readathon 🙂 🙂
Hahaha, thank you!
This is such a great way those books that you keep putting off, crossed off your TBR. I have The Smell of Other People’s Houses to read too. I’ve been hearing lots of good things about it so I’m eager to pick it up finally. And yay, This Shattered World was really good. Way better than the first book IMO. Hope you enjoy it!
