It’s that time of year again, where all of the readathons happen in a short space of time! I have only just found the challenges and dates for this readathon, which just goes to show how I’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks (considering I knew I wanted to participate this year and had been keeping an eye out (or so I thought) for the dates). I have tweaked one of the challenges slightly, but other than that, here is my TBR. If you want to find out more then click here.
Read The Group Book – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.
I want to read this anyway, though if I’m honest I would prefer to save this for my holiday later in the summer as Morgan Matson’s books are perfect for hot sunny days. This will be possibly the last one I pick up therefore, if I even get through them all (which I doubt).
Free Choice / Wild Card Book – Moonstone by Sjón
I desperately want to read this and it’s super short. I only received it for review a few days ago but it looks so interesting, I can’t wait to pick it up.
Read a Book Off of the Host’s List of Recommendations
Okay, this is the one I’m changing slightly as I don’t own any of the books on the list and I don’t really want to buy any more at the moment unless I can get them for a good price on kindle. However the one I would most like to read (More Happy Than Not) is not available for kindle (at least I can’t find it listed on amazon) and so instead I plan on reading Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick, as there is a Matthew Quick novel on the list!
Read a Book With Your Favorite Mythical Creature – A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
When I was deciding which book for this challenge I realised two things: one, I don’t have a particular favourite mythical creature and two, I have very few books that I know to include them. However, this fits the title as (I believe) it is about fairies and I really want to get around to reading it very soon. (This can also be used for the challenge about reading an author you haven’t read before).
Read a Book You’ve Been Putting Off Picking Up – Soundless by Richelle Mead
I really wanted to read this when I first got it, however since then I’ve heard more and more negative reviews and have been putting it off. I would like to find out for myself what it is like though, so I do plan to eventually get around to picking it up.
Read a Book from an Author You’ve Never Read Before – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This can also count for one I’ve been putting off, though I’m not sure why. It looks fabulous and unique and I definitely plan to get to the whole trilogy this summer.
Read a Book in a Different Format than You Usually Read – Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
I’ve heard so many amazing things about this graphic novel and I still haven’t picked it up yet, despite having it for a fairly long time. It looks like something I’ll enjoy so I hope that I get around to reading this.
I don’t know how many books I’ll get to during the readathon (between 3rd-9th July) but I’m hoping for three as I have a lot of things to get sorted and there are 2,250 pages in total. Are you participating in this readathon? I’d love to know your TBR if you are!

I LOVED The Unexpected Everything and A Court of Thorns and Roses! Hope you enjoy them! Miss Peregrine’s is also very good. 😀
Miss Peregrine’s I really enjoyed once it got going! And I’m nearly 100 pages into A Court of Thorns and Roses, which is looking good so far 😀
Yeah, it was a bit odd at first but I loved it! Heard books 2 and 3 aren’t as good, though And I loved ACOTAR! (Although I thought book 2 was better!)
ACOTAR was so good! I now understand the hype, I can’t wait to get to the next one!
Yay! The next, in my opinion, was even better! 😀
