Buzzword Readathon TBR

Here is my TBR for the final round of the Buzzword readathon!

For those who haven’t heard, Kayla from Books and Lala is trying to step back from hosting readathons. She’s talked a lot about how she doesn’t particularly enjoy hosting them and would much prefer to participate.

So this is the final round of the buzzwordathon in it’s current format. Instead she created a Goodreads group where a buzzword will be chosen and a mini readathon will run during the first week of every month.

But this last round takes place from September 21-27 the buzzword is:


I was actually surprised by how many books on my TBR had the word Night in them. I definitely won’t be able to get to all of these, but these are the 8 books I’ll be picking from throughout the week!

1. The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

I actually don’t know anything about this 😅 And I kinda want to keep it that way. I loved How to Stop Time by this author and I ordered this beautiful UK edition. I’m really excited to go into this completely blind and see where this story takes me.

2. The Midnight Bargain by C.L. Polk

This is one of my top priorities this week because I actually have an ARC copy of this and it releases October 13th. This is an adult fantasy about sorceresses, sisters, and secret magic. I’m in the mood for all the witchy, fall books so I’m really excited to start this one!

3. Down Comes the Night by Allison Saft

This is another ARC that I have but this one doesn’t come out until March 2. Even though this one is a ways out, I’m trying to get ahead on my review copies so I will probably prioritize this one as well! This is another book I know nothing about because the pitch said it’s a gothic and romantic YA fantasy following 2 enemies trapped in a creepy mansion. And that’s honestly all I kneed to know.

4. Nightbooks by J.A. White

This is a middle grade book I heard about from one of the Middle Grade Monthly hosts and have out from the library. It follows a character imprisoned by a witch forced to tell her a new scary story every night. It just seems like a great fall read!

5. Nightmares! (Nightmares! #1) by Jason Segel and Kristen Miller

This is another spooky middle grade book that I really want to get read before I start all my October recommendation lists! This is going to come as a shock to literally no one, but I don’t know the premise to this. I really just want to dive right in! I’ve heard Jason Segel narrates the audiobooks himself so if I love this first one, I might pick up the sequels on audio!

The rest of these are other options I have if I get through the above 5, but aren’t high priorities.

6. Secrets of a Summer Night (The Wallflowers #1) by Lisa Kleypas

If I get into a romance mood, I’ll probably reach for this one! It’s the start of a historical romance series by one of my favorite HR authors. And I’ve heard amazing things.

7. Night Shine by Tessa Graton

This is an author I’ve heard mixed things about but I really want to give a try! Everyone who loves their books, really loves them. This is a brand new release I have from the library so if I have time, I’ll pick it up this week!

8. Corrupt (Devil’s Night #1) by Penelope Douglas

I really want to give this series a shot, but this is definitely the lowest priority on this list. Mostly because it’s almost 500 pages long and not super conducive to a readathon 😅

Let me know if you’re participating in this final round of the Buzzwordathon and what you plan to read this week!

  1. I don’t know much about The Midnight Library but I’ve heard good things about it and I kinda want to read it! Some of the middle grade books on here like Nightmares also sound excellent
