Make Me Read It Readathon 2017


This will be second year joining this Readathon. It's hoested by Ely from Tea and Titles and Val from Innocent Smiley. Make Me Read It is an interactive Readathon that allows friends, family, and our viewers vote what what'll be reading for the week of Aug 6th to Aug 13th. Which means there's a month to vote!

This year I've picked six books that I've been to pick up read for a while. Though I'll doubt I'll get through all six in a week while working full time, but my plan is start with the book with the most votes and go down the list. So please vote and leave a comment!




What book should I read?

White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi
Sherlock Holmes: the Man from Hell by Barrie Roberts
Girls Waits with Gun by Amy Stewardt
Ghost Talkers by Mary Robinette Kowal
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Dust Bowl Girls by Lydia Reeder

This is a super low stress Readathon. You can chose the amount of books of you read and your own pace. Also, there is a hashtag, #MakeMeRead for Twitter and Instagram! So, please, please vote!! You can only vote for one book at a time, but you can vote as many times as you want. I can't wait to see what you all pick for me to read!!

    1. Hello Dina!! Welcome to Bookish Whispers. I normally sign my email up for updates to the blogs I like because I'm bad about going through my bookmarks to keep updated!
