Read-A-Thin/August TBR!

Hey Everyone and welcome to the blog. So if you’re not aware, Read-a-Thin starts in just One Week! What am I doing with my life?? So I need to tell you all my TBR because I am beyond excited to get to reading some of my own books next month and making a dent in that ever growing TBR. So I’m going to show the books and the challenges they complete, let me know if you plan to join and if you have a post for your TBR! All pictures are links to the Goodreads page for the book in case you wanna see what they’re all about!

Read a 2017 Release

Read a book that is the same color (or a similar color) as your birthstone
23310761
One of my Birthstones is an Amethyst which is usually either purple or green, it changes in the light, so I figured a mostly purple book could work!

Read a diverse book284585981

How many TBRs have I put this on now?? It’s really getting read this month, I swear!

Read a book with a title or author with the same first letter as the first letter in your first name18075234

My first name is Chelsea, this starts with C, simpleeeee

Read a book that is related to your favorite emoji29523625

My favorite emoji is the crying while laughing face and I feel with all the 90’s references that are supposed to be in the book that hopefully it lives up to that emoji.

Read a book starting with a letter from TBR (the word “the” does not count)16034235Yes, yes, yes, I’m finally going to join the hype of this Sarah J. Maas series as well

Read a book with a summer themed cover23281823

Read a book with a warm colored cover (orange, red, yellow, brown)18798983

Start and finish a series

1406195514061957

So this is an example of a box set that I bought and haven’t touched yet. Also, Amanda read these last month (July) and I really want to read them now too because I saw her read them back to back to back. Also, I have no idea why the last book is off allignment, it’s killing me too

So I know this may be a little cheesy, but my mom and I are going to start a re-read of the Harry Potter series and I bought her a paperback of the first book and I’m going to read my new Hufflepuff edition!

Read a book recommended to you by someone in the book community

284910541

I’m making this one count, because I love Julie and I’ve had this for way too long without reading it while everyone else is loving it.

Read a guilty pleasure read
16248068
The first book proved to be quiet the guilty pleasure, so of course I need to continue on the series with the second book! Plus I need this love triangle to be squashed. #TeamMaxon

Read an adult/new adult book
16102004

Read a book outside of your favorite genre
29939266
Yet another repeat, I’ve been wanting to read this for awhile, and my favorite genre is contemporary where this is a mystery/thriller!

Also, the Reading Rainbow-along starts next month which is hosted by DylantheReader5 and some of his friends on Goodreads. The goal of that read along is to read one Raibow Rowell book a month in publication order and the first book I haven’t read yet so I’m in!
8909152

And lastly, Tome Topple is going to be running in the middle of this month so of course I’m going to add a handfull of Tomes to try and Topple, but also keeping to the Read-a-Thin and making sure that I own them already, here are the 3 I’m going to try to read.

So of course, I go overboard every read-a-thon and try to fill each challenge, so needless to say with my own read-a-thon I would do the same thing. With all the other reading related things going on this month as well, I have set myself up one ambitious TBR with most likely failure at the end, but it’s worth a try right. Fingers crossed for all this reading!

  1. What a list! I’m trying to determine my immediate TBR pile too and it is tough. Also trying to branch out a bit, since I get bogged down in YA so easily, especially fantasy! Do you ever get ARCs unexpectedly and think, “Crap, how am I going to work this out?”

    Read-a-thin=thinning out TBR pile, right? I was trying to figure that out, because at first I thought it was a typo but it kept happening. So I figured out it was intentional. Also really clever!

    1. I have so many ARCs on Netgalley that I never expected to get and I honestly have no idea how to weed through them all. It’s one of my biggest struggles!!

      But yes you’re right! At first we all chuckled about it because we kept seeing the typo everywhere, but then we realized how genius it would be to make that our name since the goal was to thin the TBR. Thank you so much πŸ™‚

  2. Wow!! That’s a very ambitious TBR. I am participating in the readathon but I haven’t set up my TBR yet. I am also thinking of participating in the 7in7 readathon happening in August as well but I haven’t committed to that one yet. Good luck with your TBR!!
