If you missed our announcement earlier on in the week, we’ve created The Shelf Help Readathon with our friends Jaz and Sharn. You can check out the announcement and all the cool things on THIS post.
Following our announcement earlier and in case you’ve not clicked on the handy link right above, the Shelf Help Readathon is designed to help you clear some old books from your TBR. We all have books that have been sat there for far too long, and this is a way with some helpful challenges to get them read.
Here’s a reminder of the challenges:
The readathon will be between the 16th of May and the 30th of May, two whole weeks to complete five challenges and read as many books as you can!
I both thought long and hard and not much at all about my TBR for the Shelf Help Readathon. I wanted to obviously hit all the challenges and make sensible decisions on what i’d be able to read in the two weeks.
I’ve got big goals for this readathon and hopefully will spend most of my two weeks reading solidly from the 16th of May. I have finalised a TBR (this might change, don’t take me up on this), which i’m pretty happy with. Here are the books that i’ve chosen for each challenge:
Read A Book You Keep Almost Donating – A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby
Read A Book That’s Been On Your TBR The Longest – Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Read A Book You Bought For The Cover – I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
Read A Book You Started But Never Finished – The Miseducation Of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth
Read The Shortest Book On Your TBR – My Twentieth Century Evening and Other Small Breakthroughs by Kazuo Ishiguro
These are all quite easy picks for me because most of them have been on my physical TBR for years. It’s shameful how long Cinder has sat on my shelf to be honest. I used to have quite a collection of Nick Hornby books, until i read one, hated it and this is the last one that’s left that intrigues me. It’s hanging on by a thread to be honest.
Let me known what your TBR for the Shelf Help Readathon is in the comments. I cannot wait to start these books and complete these challenges!
