If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you’ve probably noticed a distinct lack in a pretty popular post among book bloggers: TBR posts. That’s because I am someone who is very much a mood reader. When I’m not reading books for review or for blog tours, I choose ones simply based on what sounds good to me at the moment. For that reason, I don’t tend to make monthly TBRs because it’s likely to change at the drop of a hat.
The one exception to this rule, of course, is when I participate in month-long readathons. And I just so happen to be doing so in August. The Trope-ical Readathon sounded like too much fun to pass up! It’s a competitive readathon created by Jenny @ JenJenReviews and her partner, Rob. The prompts are based off of popular bookish tropes and it runs through the entire month of August. If you’d like more information or want to register yourself, follow this link.
Now, it’s time to take a look at what I’ll be reading!
A Team Challenge
So I mentioned that this readathon is competitive, right? What does any competition need? Teams, of course! There are five teams to choose from that are genre-based:
- Team Romance
- Team Science Fiction/Fantasy
- Team Mystery/Horror/Thriller
- Team Contemporary/Literary/Historical Fiction
- Team Non-Fiction/Poetry
Now, the idea is to choose the team that represents your favorite genre, but there are approximately eleventy billion people on Team Science Fiction/Fantasy, so I thought I’d try to even the playing field a little. That’s why I chose Team Mystery/Horror/Thriller!
Those are definitely my second favorite genres, after all. And it helps that I’m dying to read the team book!Read More »
