Readathons & Challenges TBRs


February 23, 2020

Hello, my dears! I have a very exciting announcement today: THE GRAPHICS READATHON! Ellyn invited me to help out with this readathon and I am so excited, especially because it aligns perfectly with some new goals of mine (which you’ll see in my next blog post), plus I love Ellyn to death and just think everything she touches turns to gold, so if you aren’t following her, take a second to fix that real quick. ♥ And then, keep scrolling for all the readathon details!

The Graphics Readathon…

  1. begins February 25th, 2020 at 12:00AM (your time)
  2. ends March 3rd, 2020 at 11:59PM (your time)
  3. includes graphic novels, comics, and manga!

This is a super chill readathon with no big requirements or challenges, so we hope you’ll join us for at least a few reads!

Now, on to my readathon TBR!

I’m feeling adventurous, plus graphic novels tend to be quick reads, so I set a pretty ambitious TBR! Some of these are books I own and some will be Hoopla and Kindle Unlimited loans — and a few will actually be rereads!

    I read so many fantastic graphic novels last year, and I really hope that trend continues into 2020! I just got some graphic novels out from the library, so I’ll be reading those for the readathon!

    I just checked out the latest volumes our library has of Giant Days and Yona of the Dawn so I’m really excited to read those. So tempted to do another reread of Fruits Basket.

    While I won’t be joining the graphicathon, this does remind me that I need to read some graphic novels. I see that Overdrive has Naruto and I have been meaning to dive into those. Sigh, so many books. lol.
