Hi everyone. It’s been a while but … ahm, we’ll ignore that for now. I plan to make a post about why I was mia and a more life update kinda post (if you’d be intereted in that?) later, but for now I wanted to post my Alphabethon TBR since it’s kinda time sensitive.
The readathon started today and ends on the 28th. the main idea is to read books that either the authors first or last name starts with a certain letter or the title of the book. this rounds letter is M.
It’s been surprisingly easy to find books that fit this, M seems to be a really popular letter.
There are also challenges, but there are not required or anything and since I am stressed™ this week (
or rather this next few months but we don’t talk about this in this house. We ignore the problem, we can’t see it) I’m not gonna focus on them at all.
Also, my tbr isn’t really a tbr … ookay, stay with me here please. I’ve been in the biggest reading slump lately, like I’ve never been before. It’s been horrible. But thanks to fanfiction (all hail the fanfiction) I’m slowly coming out of it. But this is a precarious peace with the book gods right now so we need to tread carefully as not to anger them again.
So, since I’m unable (
or unwilling) to stick to a strict tbr even for a week … I’ve compiled a list of books/authors that fit the criteria and I’m looking forward to reading.
So without further ado, here’s the #Alphabethon: Letter M edition Mood Board:*
*I’ve linked the Goodreads pages for the books on the cover photos if you want to check any of them out (at least I hope I did)
I feel like this is a pretty good “base” selection since I’ve got different genres like fantasy, scifi, thriller and a classic (I know not a genre … but eh), YA and Adult, short and longer books and even a graphic novel.
I might just binge the whole Wayward Children series again, because I’ve recently read Come Tumbling Down and it was like coming home. A feeling I could really need right now. Or binge the whole The Queen’s Thief series again so I can finish it. I’ve loved loved loved the first 4 books. So underrated! (Expect a post about this soon-ish!)
Or, if they arrive in time … I’ve just ordered the next two Volumes in the Monstress Graphic Novel series. I really enjoyed the first two installments and I might even read them again to refresh my mind? Also I think they wold fit one of the challneges, that was to have a character with a name that starts with M? (Don’t quote me on that) Oh, and for the one that has both, an author and a title with M! So perfect actually.
