Make Me Read It Readathon

Posted July 25, 2017 by Tina in As Told by Tina / 18 Comments

The Make Me Read It Readathon is hosted by Ely and Val. The readathon takes place from August 6th to August 13th.

How does Make Me Read It Readathon Work?

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/bookstagrammers 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 think sounds like a lot of fun so I’m excited to join. I made a list of books both NA and YA to read for this readathon and I’m excited to have you decide which ones I should read.

You Should Read:

When Its Real by Erin Watt
The Wall Of Winnipeg & Me by Mariana Zapata
Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino
Shameless by Lex Martin
The Inexplicable Logic Of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Haters to Lovers by K. Webster
Fireworks by Katie Cotugno
The Young Elites by Marie Lu

    • Thank you so much for voting! The first book in the series is text 2 lovers and it’s really good.

    Voted for The Inexplicable Logic since I’ve been hearing good things about it! Here’s my poll:

    • I vote for Flawed! I’ve always loved the cover.

  • These all have such amazing covers and I haven’t read any of them so that’s how I voted (and I’m pretty sure I voted multiple times throughout the weeks… sorry.

    • That’s totally okay! Thank you so much for voting.
