Readathoning in June

Hey folks, so June is here and I’m very excited because there are some awesome readathons happening this month. There’s a sci-fi themed readathon happening in the first week, a fantasy-themed one in week three, and an emoji-themed one that spans the whole month. There’s also a one-day 24hourathon on June 11. Managing three readathons means three reading lists, and I usually find books that overlap to make it easier, so I thought I will post an official (well, mostly) TBR at the start of the month to pump myself up, to get you guys interested in the readathons (and in cheering me on, too *wink*) and hoping some of you are participating too (so I can cheer you on)!

[BTW, these aren’t the only readathons happening this month. There are more over at Little Book Owl, where a calendar can help you organize the ones you are interested in!]

Sci-Fi Summer Readathon (#SciFiSummerJune)

Hosted by Michelle over at Seasons of Reading, this week-long readathon runs from June 1-7 and is sci-fi themed. I’m aiming for 5 sci-fi books during this week:

The Silence (The Six #3) Replica (Replica, #1) Ringer (Replica, #2) The Edge of Forever (The Edge of Forever #1) On Through the Never (The Edge of Forever #2)


Hosted by Jordan from callmesensei14, the read-a-thon will be held from June 13-19 and includes two challenges – the reading challenge and the daily photo challenge (which I may/may not participate in). My TBR for the reading challenges are as below:

  1. A fantasy with white on the cover : Blood of Eden
  2. A fantasy book with and LGBT+ MC : Every Heart a Doorway
  3. Listen to a fantasy audiobook : Library of Souls
  4. A fantasy book with fire in the cover or in the title : Spindle Fire
  5. A fantasy book that features mythological creatures : The Dragon’s Price

Blood of Wonderland (Queen of Hearts Saga, #2) Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1) Library of Souls Audiobook Spindle Fire (Spindle Fire #1) The Dragon's Price (Transference, #1)


A month-long themed challenge hosted by Dylan, Sara and Naya. The goal is to complete four of the challenges mentioned in the list. I have chosen more than the 4 because it is a month-long challenge and my moods can vary, so I consider it tentative for now, but I have found books to fit 19 of the prompts, which is sort of also my TBR for the month of June. (of course if I focus on this TBR, I can automatically fulfill the other readathon TBRs as well)

(Sorry I can’t post the TBR with the emojis! WP sucks 😦 )
