So I'm going, to be honest. I'm not going to be doing the challenge Lol

But I'm hopefully going to be catching up on "The Vicious Deep" trilogy. I'm Currently Rereading The Vicious Deep (The Vicious Deep #1) by Zoraida Córdova so by the time the ReadAThon starts I'll just have to Reread The Savage Blue (The Vicious Deep #2) by Zoraida Córdova & then finally read The Vast and Brutal Sea (The Vicious Deep #3) by Zoraida Córdova . I'm looking forward to finally knowing ALL!!!!

Yay!!! I love that series and would be interested to see what you think. Have you seen the show or are you waiting until after you've read the books?

I feel like I can't think of any books in the beginning and then at the last minute I think about how these books that will work Lol

Happy Reading :)

Nina | 53 comments I hope i can finally finsh the Shades of Magic Series. I'm stuck in the middle of the third book for several month now. If I finsh that one I would read Blinde Vögel which is the second part in a german thriller series. I don't think i will finsh more than these two series, but if I'm lucky i can make some progress on the smoky barrett series and The Tal Series.
So my TBR is:
Blinde Vögel (Beatrice Kaspary, #2) by Ursula Poznanski A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic, #3) by V.E. Schwab Das Böse In Uns by Cody McFadyen Der Fluch (Das Tal Season 2, #1) by Krystyna Kuhn


message 6: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly | 139 comments Seven, Eight...Gonna Stay Up Late (Rebekka Franck, #4) by Willow Rose Nine, Ten ... Never sleep again (Rebekka Franck, #5) by Willow Rose Eleven, Twelve ... Dig and Delve (Rebekka Franck #6) by Willow Rose Thirteen, Fourteen ... Little Boy Unseen (Rebekka Franck Book 7) by Willow Rose

Here's my TBR and I"m hoping to finish them all. I did a page count yesterday and I don't think any of them were over 300 pages so should be doable as long as nothing comes up like the past 2 months :D

Vivian Wolkoff | 117 comments Here's my TBR:
Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3) by Laini Taylor A Million Worlds with You (Firebird, #3) by Claudia Gray The Rose Society (The Young Elites, #2) by Marie Lu Shadows, Maps, and Other Ancient Magic (The Dowser #4) by Meghan Ciana Doidge Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas

I hope to finish at least the two first books, since they are the last ones in their respective series.


message 8: by Key (new)

Key (leoithne27) | 71 comments For sure, these two Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic, #3) by V.E. Schwab . With both of these I found I flew right through the first book(s), so hopefully I can finish both of these within 7 days.

And then if I have time I still have the Inkworld books to finish re-reading, or I can start Ship of Destiny (Liveship Traders, #3) by Robin Hobb

I don't think there's anyone who's 19 in these books... Honestly I don't think I've seen very many 19 year olds in books? (Would love recommendations)


message 9: by Amanda (new)

Amanda If anyone has any recommendations for books that have characters who are 19-20, that have poc and lgbtq characters and that is preferably either a thriller, fantasy or mystery, please let me know! Really looking for something good to read!

Ashly (ashlyh) | 104 comments I started Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3) by Laini Taylor about a month ago and still haven't finished it, so I will read that if I don't by the time this readathon starts.

I plan on reading as many of the following as possible:
A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic, #3) by V.E. Schwab Ruin and Rising (The Grisha, #3) by Leigh Bardugo Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse, #5) by Charlaine Harris Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris Taltos (Lives of the Mayfair Witches, #3) by Anne Rice

Lizzy Seitz (cookinggurl43) | 239 comments My tbr video will be going up on my channel tomorrow (www.youtube.com/lizzyseitz) but I thought I'd update here as well. I have so many series I'm in the middle of or want to get going on (hence catching up) so I'm not going to read all of these but I'm going to pick from these: Empire of Storms The Vile Village The Hostile Hospital We'll Always Have Summer After You To All the Boys I've Loved Before A Torch Against the Night Another Day The Titan's Curse Alight The Ask and the Answer Red Queen Hollow City Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I know it's a ton of books but some of them I know I'll be able to read fairly fast as well as Hollow City, Empire of Storms, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and A Torch Against the Night I've already started. So I'm just going to be picking from these for the week.

I probably won't be completing the challenge of reading a book with a character the same age as you because I'm 22 and I don't think any of these books have characters that are 22. Any suggestions?


message 29: by Mady (new)

Mady DeJulio | 8 comments Definitely going to get to P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #2) by Jenny Han and if I have time A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3) by Sarah J. Maas

Desislava  Ilieva (desiiilieva) | 1 comments I want to finish "Wizard and Glass", the fourth book in "The Dark Tower" series by Stephen King. I'm currently at 60% and should be able to read it but I don't find it that interesting (except for the parts with Roland and Susan which I think are very well written).
