What do you think should be the theme of this readathon?

Comment your suggestion by Sunday, May 24th! Only one suggestion per person!

A theme is like:
Only fantasy books
Only science fiction books
Only contemporary books

Nancatto why don't we do lgbtq+ as a theme??
or we could do contemporary but a specification within that too??

Sure!"

the second option can be if someone's not comfy with doing the first....just in case kinda :)


☀︎El In Oz☀︎ (elinoz) Maybe a book with LGBTQ+ representation as a main or a main side character? That can span may genre, just has to have LGBTQ+ ppl in it.
Or I think maybe just fantasy? I mean it’s probably the most read genre and many people read it so🤔

i think lgbtq+ is a great time to have during pride month. it shouldn't matter if the book is a contemporary or fantasy or sf, just to have lgbtq+ representation

The theme that has been decided is Fantasy! I'd honestly been expecting LGBTQ, but it turns out most people wanted fantasy. Anyhow, that is the theme, and now you can go sign up!

Nancatto is warcross fantasy?? because in the genre section of the book details it has both sci-fi and fantasy.... so i'm kind of confused....


message 21: by Nancatto (new)

Nancatto oh also..is wilder girls a fantasy??


message 22: by Lucy Tonks (new)

Lucy Tonks | 636 comments Mod
warcross is near futuristic sci-fi


message 23: by Lucy Tonks (new)

Lucy Tonks | 636 comments Mod
wilder girls i'm not sure if i'd actually count it as fantasy. it's a lord of the flies inspired book. i read it last year and i think i would say it's more dystopian than fantasy..

Lucy Tonks | 636 comments Mod
actually, i think it's a lord of the flies inspired book, but i may be confusing it with another book
