Today I am going to be sharing my TBR for the #ThanksgivingReadathon 2018 which runs from Wednesday the 21st through Sunday the 25th.
Want to join in on the fun? Read on for details about how to participate…
When I saw that my good friend Jackie @Death by Tsundoku was hosting the #ThanksgivingReadathon 2018, I knew I wanted to participate. For more details about this readathon & how to participate, check out Jackie’s announcement post → #ThanksgivingReadathon2018 Announcement
I don’t typically participate in readathons because they always conflict with the #MomLife I lead, but Jackie’s Thanksgiving readathon actually falls on a school break for my kiddos, so I decided I needed to get my act together and participate.
You are probably going to laugh when you see my TBR. Why? Because it is the most random TBR ever… How did I come up with it? Basically I went over to my bookcase that holds my ridiculous TBR, and grabbed books that had less than 250 pages… If I am going to participate in my first readathon, I want to at least make it look like I slayed it.
Without further ado, here is my official #ThanksgivingReadatho 2018 TBR…
» The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
I’m sure at least one person has seen the irony in me selecting this book for a Thanksgiving readathon… While I do celebrate Thanksgiving. I fully acknowledge the controversial origins behind this holiday & the cultural appropriation that many in the US are guilty of. Since I’ve never read a book with a Native American main character, I feel like this is an important book for me to read, especially around Thanksgiving.
» The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
I’ve lost count how many times this book has been recommended to me. After reading The Heart’s Invisible Furies by Boyne earlier this year, I finally picked up a copy of this one. You can read my review here → Book Review: The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne. Since it is a mere 216 pages, I decided to throw this one into the mix.
» The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
I’ve been meaning to read this book for YEARS. When I was scanning my shelves, I noticed that the spine on this one was on the smaller side. I was delighted to find that The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is only 178 pages. What goes better with Thanksgiving than a sci-fi book?
» The Secret of Nightingale Wood by Lucy Strange
The Secret of Nightingale Wood is my audiobook selection for this readathon. This is a middle grade/gothic/historical fiction book…. Yes, please! Since this is just under 6 hours of listening time, I hope to finish this one while I conduct my Thanksgiving cooking & during travel.
