It’s time for round 7 of Graphicsathon!
It’s time for another round of Graphicsathon, the readathon I co-host with Ellyn, Rebecca, Bec, and Ally where we focus on reading graphic novels, manga, and other graphic-centered story formats! I love this readathon so much and I’m especially excited about this round because this round’s prompts are primarily about reading diverse voices and because this round is coming so late in the year, which makes it a great way to increase your reading count before the year ends!
This round goes from December 1st to December 7th and we have a Twitter page, Storygraph challenge, and Discord server! You can check out Ellyn’s announcement post for more info, or keep scrolling for the prompts, my recommendations, and my TBR!

Here’s my (slightly ambitious) TBR:
I decided to do something I’ve never done before, and picked out my TBR with the Graphics-opoly board Ellyn made! I’ve never used a game board for a readathon before and I had so much fun. I wanted to aim for 2 books per day, so I rolled the dice 10 times for 10 prompts, and then picked the other 4 on a whim. Luckily, I managed to fit a lot of my Netgalley graphic novel/manga eARCs into the list!
🎲 roll 1: rainbow on the cover → The Love Report
🎲 roll 2: rep you don’t read often → The Librarian of Auschwitz (Jewish rep)
🎲 roll 3: on your TBR → Shiver
🎲 roll 4: a character who identifies differently than you → Gender Queer: A Memoir
🎲 roll 5: BIPOC main character → In Limbo: A Graphic Memoir
🎲 roll 6: host recommendation → I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 3 (I read volumes 1-2 on Ellyn’s rec ages ago and am finally continuing!)
🎲 roll 7: mental health rep → Dinosaur Therapy
🎲 roll 8: free choice → Hungry Ghost (also has Asian rep + mental health/disordered eating rep)
🎲 roll 9: disability rep → The Oracle Code
🎲 roll 10: queer rep → The Sea in You
