Make Me Read It Readathon


It's readathon time!  I've participated in a couple of them this year and really enjoyed them.  So always keep an eye out for them on Twitter and other blogs.  Which is how I stumbled across the Make Me Read It Readathon. It was created by The Innocent Smiley and Tea & Titles, and basically, anyone can VOTE for what I'll be reading during July 9th to the 16th.  This will be my first year participating and sign-ups are HERE and the the hashtag is #MakeMeRead!


Which book should I read?

The Inquisition by Taran Matharu
This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee
The Magic Mirror by Susan Hill Long
The Summer Dragon by Todd Lockwood
I, Ripper by Stephen Hunter
trivia quiz











The Summer Dragon and The Inquisition are my two most anticipated books of 2016.  Which means I having hard time choosing which to read first, now I don't have too! The others are books I bought that I've just never gotten around to and had forgotten I had.  So it felt right to toss them up!

You can only vote for one book at a time, but feel free to vote more than once!  Even if it's for the same book!

    2. Have you read his short story? It was included in Unfettered by Shawn Speakman and it was really good!
      Also I ordered the Summer Dragon so hopefully I get to read it soon! And you do too, of course ;)

  2. Based on title and author alone, The Summer Dragon gets my vote! The synopsis also looks good. I hope you enjoy the readathon and whichever book you end up reading. I'm looking forward to it! If you want to vote on my list, you can find it here.
