It’s time for Graphicsathon: round 9!

May 29, 2023

It’s time for round 9 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 so excited to announce that, after quite a few requests from participants, we’re hosting the first ever MONTH-LONG round!

This round goes from June 1st to June 30th and we have a Twitter page, Storygraph challenge, and Discord serverYou can check out Ellyn’s announcement post for more info, or keep scrolling for the prompts and my TBR! (And as always, thank you to Ellyn for making the graphics below!)

Here’s the readathon info…

… and here’s my TBR…

I picked some of my TBR titles based on the “adventure” theme, and then some are things I grabbed from the library that looked interesting, or eARCs I have sitting on my Netgalley app! I doubt I’ll read all of these, so I plan on using a Wheel Picker! (The eARCs that haven’t released yet are marked with an * )
