It’s the final one! I have to participate!
This readathon is a 10 day-long readathon from the 11th to the 19th July. There are reading challenges, booktube challenges, bookstagram challenges etc. There is a lot and it’s a heavy readathon, but it’s well organised and fully international too which means there is always someone out there doing reading sprints!
This was one of my first ever readathons and I absolutely loved it! So I’m totally here for the final one!
Here is a link to the announcement video:

My wishful TBR
Group Book – Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I don’t have this book, and I’m not sure if this is a book I’m interested in. So we’ll see if I actually will read it or not. I did request it in the library, but I’m not sure if it will show up in time.
Host’s 5 start – Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
I’ve had my eyes on this for a while but never gotten to it. It sounds dark and right up my ally with a post apocalyptic world were teens gets supernatural powers. I haven’t seen the movie either so maybe I should.
Based on the Cover – Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Grey
I tried to read this for Buzzwordathon bit never got to it. I’ve had my eyes on this book for years, but again never gotten around to it. I do tend to confuse this book with These Broken Stars by Megan Spooner and Aime Kaufman, not sure why. But I hope I can finally get around to this book and that cover is stunning.
I think I need a bit of sci-fi in my life right now. Sci-fi with romance 🤗
Adult book – The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa
I have this on audio which will be a quick read/listen. I have heard this is a sad book, but my friend who told me that had just lost her cat so maybe she was a bit partial to cat-crying…
Free Choice – ?
I have no idea. I think I’ll use this for a mood choice during the readathon. Or it will be double up’d with something else as I will probably run out of time…
New to You Author – Heartstopper by Alice Osman
Graphic Novel – Heartstopper by Alice Osman
This sounds like a super cute graphic novel about two gay guys in high school. I’m totally in 🙂 I think the first page is to boys making out in the library 😂
Originally Exited For But Never Got To – Darkest Mind by Alexandra Bracken
Same as above really.
Predicted 5 star read – Storm of Locust by Rebecca Roanhorse
I loved Trail of Lightning last year! I read that for the Predicted 5 star read for least year bibliathon so I might as well continue the tradition 🙂
There seems to be a lot of books here that I originally planned for a different readathon and just never got to. Maybe I should start doing my monthly TBR based on missed books. I could go back to last year and look what I planned to read but never got to. What do you think?
I love this readathon. It’s fun. I’m quite exited for it now that it’s all planned out.
Anyone else participating in this readathon?
