It’s time for my first readathon of the month!
The backlist readathon was created by and is hosted by a whole slew of Booktubers! Here’s a link to one of the announcement videos if you’re interested in learning more. The gist of it is:
- Read backlist titles (the hosts defined it as any book released before 2020 but I’m reading books still in publication that aren’t the author’s latest release)
- The readathon runs from March 9th – March 15th
- There are 6 reading challenges
Here are the challenges and what I hope to read!
1. Shortest Title: Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
The mass market paperback copy of this is less than 300 pages. Which is definitely one of the shorter books on my TBR. This is a paranormal fantasy about werewolves and that’s literally all I know. I know this author and series are well loved though and I’m excited to give it a shot!
2. Intimidates You: Escaping From Houdini (Hunting Prince Dracula #3) by Kerri Maniscalco
This book is just so long 😅 I love this series and really want to jump back into it, but I also know the second book is most peoples favorite so I don’t want to be disappointed.
3. Recommended by Someone Else: The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh
The theme of this TBR is paranormal 😅 This book was getting some really terrible reviews so I originally had no interest in picking it up. But Riley Marie hyped this one (and I’m have no power to resist her recommendations) so I’m giving this a shot.
4. Most Excited For: The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
This is probably the book I will start the readathon with because I’m so excited to get back to this world! I loved book 1 and was really sad that I couldn’t fit this into February’s TBR. So this one is for sure happening.
5. Diverse: Magic For Liars by Sarah Gailey
I’m not actually certain this book is diverse but Sarah Gailey is a queer author who writes a lot of queer characters so I’m assuming this will have LGBTQ rep. However I could be 100% wrong. I know absolutely nothing about this book other than it was compared to The Magicians and I read no further and bought it.
6. Blue on Cover: Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews OR Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh
Oh look more paranormal romance! 😅 Can you tell I’m on a kick right now? Not sure which of these I’ll be in the mood for but they’re both blue-ish.
Are you participating in this readathon?? Let me know what you’re planning to read!
