Post your TBR pile here and track your progress during the readathon. I hope you like the challenges and I am excited to see your choices for all the challenges.

There's a list for the first challenge in the "everything you need to know" thread. There are about 50 books you can pick from, but I'm assuming that there will be some books that are more popular than others. If they weren't book of the month yet, I could open a discussion thread for each book, that is read by more than one person. That way you could combine the first challenge and the last challenge (buddy read), if you liked.
Please tell me how you like the idea and how you like the challenges. If there are any questions feel free to ask them in the thread with all the information.

I'll post my TBR soon, but there are several readathons coming up, so I am not sure yet, which books I am gonna read for #CosmoReadathon :)

Have fun!

Song Lyrics:
"Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you
With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you"
(U2-With or without you)

✔ 5. Read a book that reminds you of your childhood - (My childood was marked by fairytales and stories, so maybe a fairytale retelling?!) -Unhooked ★★★★☆- Read 220 pages from August 24th to 26th. My Review:

I am having the best of luck with my own readathons. Somehow I catched a cold and I don't feel like reading at all, but here's what I've read so far.
Day 1: 54 pages of The Devil's Elixirs which was not on my TBR but I am counting it as the one set in an different environment, because it's set at court in the past.
Day 2: 43 pages of The Woman in the Window

Pages read in total: 97 pages

I hope you're doing well and have fun! :)
