Last month I made the very important decision to take part in my first ever readathon. Why is it so important that I made this decision last month? Because you were in charge of what order I read my books in! I chose 5 books from my TBR shelf and set up a poll so you could vote for what you wanted me to read first.
I have no plans to try and read all 5 of these books (we all know I’m not the fastest reader) but my personal aim is to try and get through 3, if I make it through more than that then it’s a miracle and I shall start praying to the bookish gods!
Now what order do you, my lovely readers, want me to read my 5 chosen books in? Lets see!
Rebel of the Sands by Alywn Hamilton won your votes by a landslide, so I’m guessing you guys really want me to read that book? This is one I have wanted to read for a while now but was worried about the hype so I needed that little push to finally pick it up.
Second place is The Sin-Eater’s Daughter by Malinda Salisbury which has been in second place for quite a while on the poll by a couple of votes. I’ve been wanting to read this book and it’s sequel for a few weeks now but other books had been sitting on my TBR for longer. So I decided to use this readathon as an excuse to read it.
Edging into this place by one vote is Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis which I can’t wait to get stuck into because I’ve been itching for Snow White retelling for months now! My copy took forever to arrive which is why I’m reading it in a readathon instead of months ago when I originally wanted to. But go look at the cover! Google it now and bask in its gorgeousness!
The Lie Tree by Frances Harding came fourth by one vote. One single vote! I picked this book up on a whim because of its pretty cover and intriguing synopsis, and then I got home and suddenly there was loads of pictures of it on the blogosphere. No one has read it that I’ve seen so I thought I’d put it on the list and see how well it did in the votes and hopefully get to see for myself in the week.
The final book I have ready for my readathon is The Shadow Queen by R. J. Redwine. Another Snow White retelling, I know, but I couldn’t resist! And this one has magic! It’s another book I’ve wanted to read for a long time but took a while to arrive so I thought I’d put it on the list, see how it did and even if it doesn’t get chosen I know it’ll be one I’ll be reading this year.
So that is what you voted for me to read in the #MakeMeRead It readathon! I will be doing a post at the end of the week to let you know how I get on and what my first readathon experience was like.
