Graphicsathon, Round 6: an announcement & my TBR!

July 5, 2022

Guess who’s co-hosting Graphicsathon again?

As many of you may remember, a few years back, I co-hosted the Graphicsathon readathon’s first few rounds! If you’re not familiar with the readathon, it’s dedicated to reading graphic novels, manga, and comics, and we always have so much fun. I had to take a break from co-hosting due to life getting in the way, but I’M BACK, BAY-BEE!


Thank you to Ellyn for these graphics!

Dates: July 11th to 17th, 2022. Time: 12AM to 11:59PM your time zone. Aim: to read anything with graphics as the main storytelling feature/device, AKA comics, graphic novels, manga, etc. You can also find graphics on audiobook. Hosts: @allonsythornrax, @bookishrebecca, @_becandbooks, @allypallystaken, @howlinglibraryThe prompts: a graphic with representation different to your own, a graphic with less than 1000 reviews, a host recommendation, a 5-star prediction, a comfort read, and a graphics written by a BIPOC author.

I always make way too big of a TBR for this readathon because I think I can fly through 20 graphics a day, every day, but this knowledge did not stop me from using ALL the Hoopla loans AND prioritizing some re-reads! 😂 I only put the first volume of each series in the list, but have borrowed multiple installments from a few of these series from the library/Hoopla.

🍰 Harrow County // Cullen Bunn → adult horror → re-reading the first volume to continue!
🍰 Bone Parish // Cullen Bunn → adult horror → re-reading the first TWO volumes to continue/finish!
🍰 The Graveyard Book // Neil Gaiman & P. Craig Russell → MG fantasy/horror
🍰 I Want to Eat Your Pancreas // Yoru Sumino → YA contemporary
🍰 Batman, Vol. 1: The Court of Owls // Scott Snyder → adult fantasy
🍰 ExtraOrdinary // V.E. Schwab → adult sci-fi/fantasy

🍰 Blackwater // Jeannette Arroyo → YA fantasy → review copy
🍰 Crumbs // Danie Stirling → YA fantasy → review copy
🍰 The Conjuring: The Lover // David Lesli Johnson-McGoldrick → adult horror
🍰 The Nice House on the Lake // James Tynion IV → adult horror
🍰 Frizzy // Claribel A. Ortega → MG contemporary → review copy
🍰 Over My Dead Body // Sweeney Boo → YA fantasy → review copy

🍰 Wait Till Helen Comes // Mary Downing Hahn → MG horror → review copy

🍰 The Boys // Garth Ennis → adult horror/fantasy
🍰 Alice Ever After // Dan Panosian → adult horror/fantasy

And of course, I’ll be re-reading Chef’s Kiss for the readathon buddy read! I adored this as an eARC and can’t wait to revisit it!

Our buddy read: Chef's Kiss by Jarrett Melendez. The book is new adult, queer (m/m), workplace romance, has great friendships, a food focus, and a taste-testing pig. The book has a gay main character, gay love interest, and BIPOC side characters.

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. Well I hadn’t planned on participating in anything else this month but I think I might try this if I can find something for each prompt.

    1. Hmmm.. this is amazing and I might have to low-key take part!!! I have a few of these on my TBR!

    1. Def low-key participating; I HAVS a HUGE bag of graphic novels & comics & webtoon eps saved for this but Ayyyy yiy yiy ngl life has been SO chaotic (had my infusion yesterday, leaving for a 4 day vacation I don’t want to go on tomorrow, & RA flare-up so bad I can barely (mostly not) walk so I’m trying to rest as much as possible but I’m just so anxious to get done what I need to get doneeeeee) Lmao. BUT I AM TRYING TO POWER THROUGH & PARTICIPATE! I may not be able to, but I’m aiming for one for each prompt at least & I’ll be satisfied methinks(!)— Gotta tamp down that chronic perfectionism 😅, due to having SOMUCH going on!!!!. I’m so excited though, SERIOUSLY!!!! AND I’m SO happy your blog is regularly gracing my feed again; LOVE that you’re hosting this, lovely, kicking ass & taking names 😘!!! 🤍🤍🤍

      1. Awww I hope you feel better soon and get the chance to participate! And I hope your trip doesn’t go too badly and is over soon so you can come home and get the rest you need! ♥ ty lovely!

    1. I couldn’t participate this time, but I hope you’re having fun 💕 Let me know what you think of ExtraOrdinary I have been eyeing this one for a while 👀 Crumbs looks SO cute!! 🥰
