So, it’s summer and I’m a teacher…so what better way to spend a week of my free time than attempting 3 readathons at once?!? I have this next week free from professional development workshops and travel. My apartment is pretty clean…so I think I can! I also have a fair amount of overlap on my TBR’s, but I’m still attempting a lot of books for 8 days. I’m just going to have as much fun as I can with it! Without further ado….here are the books & then the readathons to which they belong!
Library-a-Thon (June 11-June 18)
Borrow & read a popular or backlist book you meant to read but never got around to: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Borrow & read a book by a popular author you’ve been curious to try or read more of: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Borrow & read a book you haven’t heard of before seeing it in the library: All the Rivers by Dorit Robinyan
Borrow & read a book recommended by the librarian: Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson (recommended on my library’s blog)
Borrow & read a book you just feel like reading: The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

A fantasy book with an LBGT+ MC: Magpie Lord by K. J. Charles
Listen to a fantasy audiobook: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling (this came in on OverDrive just in time! First time listening to it!)
A fantasy book with fire on the cover or in the title: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
A fantasy book that features mythological creatures: The Tower of Swallows by Andrzej Sapkowski (translated by David French)
If you’re keeping track, that’s 13 unique books from June 11 to June 19. I feel I’m setting myself up for failure…but maybe not, I am off of work that whole time and a lot of my friends are also traveling. I’m going to do the best I can and hopefully read some great books!
Are you attempting any of these June readathons?? Let me know in the comments!
