Last month was full of read-a-thons, and this one is no different. I’m awful at them, but I always try to participate anyways because it helps me read more than I would on my own.
My TBR this month focuses primarily around the read-a-thons, but I’m going to try and squeeze in any other books that I can, too! We’ll see how this actually goes.
Stormy Kind of Love by Tia Lee
I am reading a review copy that was sent to me this month because I want to get the review done ASAP! I should be able to get this done soon because I have already started it. I won’t say much because I have a lot of feelings that I’ll get into in my review (so look out for that).
The Secret History by Donna Tart
I’ve talked about this book a lot on my Instagram (which you should follow). I bought this book on a whim at Barnes and Noble, but it is one that I am very excited about! So far, I am really enjoying it, but it is a long book, so it’ll definitely take me a while to read.
Buzzword-a-thon- March 18-24
This is a read-a-thon hosted by Kayla (or booksandlala on booktube) and Chelsea (chelseasdollingreads) this time around, and I’m so excited. I haven’t participated in the past because I never had enough books to fit the challenge.
The buzzwords this round are: Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How!
There are so many options with this, and I found lots of books to fit- and a few of them are books that I need to review, which is great.
The Top Ten Lies We Tell Ourselves: And HOW To Stop Living Them by Dana Morrocco
I got this book on Netgalley AGES ago and I just suck at reading ARCs, so it’s been sitting on my virtual shelf for so long. I am really working on getting through all of my ARCs this year (even though so far I’ve been pretty unsuccessful).
WHAT I Wish I Knew WHEN I Was 20 by Tina Seelig
Again, this is another Netgalley book, and I just want to through as many as I can in the upcoming months (I have about 9 on my shelf).
WHERE I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
I bought this book on Bookoutlet a while back, and have yet to read it. I think I added it just to get my total about $35 or just to get an even number of books. I’m not particularly excited to read it, but I own it now, so I’m going to give it a try.
WHEN We Collided by Emery Lord
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book, so I can not wait to read it! The cover is super pretty, too, which just adds to my hype for it!
HOW To Break a Boy by Laurie Devore
This was a kindle deal that I found one day, so I decided to get it. The reviews are very mixed for it, but I want to give it a try!
Zodiac-a-thon- March 20-26
This read-a-thon was created by Kerri, who is an absolute angel, and it is all about astrology! There are 6 challenges, and even though I don’t think I’ll be able to read all 6 books, I still decided to fill in the challenges aside from reading the group book! Some of them overlap with the Buzzword-a-thon books (since they are basically at the same time) because there is no way I can read that many books in a week.
Buddy read a book with someone who shares your sun sign
For this challenge, I am reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid with a group of scorpios on Twitter! We made a groupchat and turned the buddy read into a mini group read.
Read a book with an astrology/astronomy related word in the title
I am choosing Rust and Stardust by T Greenwood for this (because of the word “star” in it). This is another ARC I got from Netgalley, and it’s one that I actually really wanted to read, so now is as good a time as ever!
Read a book that fits the challenge for your sun sign
The challenge for Scorpio (which is my sun sign) is to read a book with romance in it. I am going to combine this challenge with the book Where I Belong from the Buzzword-a-thon since it has romance in it!
Read a book that fits the challenge for your moon sign
My moon sign is Aquarius, and the challenge is to read a book outside of your comfort zone. For this one I am going with The Space Between the Stars by Anne Corlett. This is one of the first physical ARCs I’ve ever received, about 2 years ago, and I STILL haven’t read it. I suck, okay?? I’m not a big Sci-fi person, so we’ll see how this goes. Hopefully I enjoy it!
Read a book that fits the challenge for your ascendent/rising sign
My rising sign is capricorn, and the challenge is to read a nonfiction book. Again, I am combining this with a book from the buzzword-a-thon- either one of the first two would count. They are both self-help type books (those count, right?).
#SOMreadalong- A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
If you didn’t know, I am hosting a read-a-long for the shades of magic series by V.E. Schwab! This month is A Gathering of Shadows because we read A Darker Shade of Magic in February.
If you’re participating, let me know and use the #somreadalong to update your progress on social media :)
I love to make a plan for myself every month with books I want to read, but I rarely ever stick to it fully. We’ll see how this month ends up going, I might ditch this TBR and just read whatever I’m in the mood for, but I’ll try.
Let me know what’s on your TBR this month!
