#TBRTakedown Read-a-thon

So... today when I was pursuing the interwebs I came across a read-a-thon that seems to be picking up a lot of speed in the BookTube community. Even though I'm not going near YouTube with a 10-foot pole, I thought it sounded like a lot of fun and might even help me with these physical TBR issues I've been having lately.

Here's the announcement video for the challenge!

The idea behind this read-a-thon is to whittle away at all of those books that have been slowly piling up on your bookshelves over the course of a week (June 1-7). There are five mini-challenges to make it a little more interesting!

  1. A book that's been on your TBR shelf over a year!
  2. An unread sequel sitting on your TBR shelf.
  3. A first book in a series on your TBR shelf.
  4. An "out of your comfort zone" book on le TBR shelf!
  5. A book from your most recent book haul!

Five books in a week is a little too ambitious for me since it's physical copies only and audiobooks don't count so I've decided to combine some of these categories and plan to read a total of 3 books.

Here is my TBR for the read-a-thon (I'm an extremely indecisive mood reader and can't make this decision now... so these are the options):

A book that's been on your TBR for over a year/A first book in a series 


An unread sequel/A book from your most recent book haul


An "out of your comfort zone" book


So there it is! The read-a-thon begins on Monday and I am SUPER excited to get started on this one! Is anyone else planning to participate?
