My “Failed Readathon” Readathon signup + TBR

failed readathon

I know I literally just shared a summer TBR, but my friend Laura came up with an amazing readathon idea that’s all about the books we failed to read in previous readathons and since I was planning to read some of those books at some point anyway I thought I couldn’t not join!

The readathon runs for the whole month of August so that should be plenty of time to read at least one book, but I looked at two readathons I joined and I decided I will try to read four books I failed to read back then. I still want to count the readathon as a success even if I don’t end up reading all of them, though!

  1. Waiting on a Bright Moon! It’s been so long since I read it (it was 2017 I think?) and… I loved it so much back then. I hope you like it too!
    [I don’t know if you already know them, but to be safe: TWs for homophobia and what I remember to a very graphic (at least fro 17-year-old me) sci-fi execution scene from an observer’s PoV]
    And I’m curious about Deadline, I’ve seen it on a lot of lists of sapphic books but I’m not sure I ever read a review of it.
    Good luck with your TBR!


    1. thank you so much for the TWs! I first wanted to read it when I did the too many short stories in too little time thing but then decided this was too long, I’m glad to have the excuse to try again. i will let you know if i like it!
      and….same about deadline? i don’t even remember what made me add it and buy it (oh, maybe it was free at some point? i be genoese like that sometimes fhsdkfs) but a few mutuals liked it and it’s sapphic, so!

  2. I think I’ve only joined like one readathon? Or was it challenge? 😅 Anyway, good luck with your tbr and readathon!! I’ve been meaning to read one of J.Y. Yang’s works. I have Between The Firmaments on my tbr as of now.

    1. thank you! 💕 i also want to read something else by the author after i’ve read this, the Tensorate series has been on my radar for a while although I know nothing about it (i just like the name tensorate for some reason fhdlfhsfs) so hopefully i’ll get to it at some point!

    1. you’re welcome bb, it’s an awesome idea and i love that it runs the whole month (i can only join monthly readathons because shorter ones give me anxiety fdshklhs) 💕 💕 💕

  3. Good luck on your readathon!! I have never done one before because I think it would just make me too anxious?? Also, I am a pretty slow reader so it wouldn’t even be a readathon for me lmao. Also, I have only just been made aware of Jy Yang, so I am going to try and read some of their books because they seem right up my alley!!
