So, I decided to join not one, but two readathons in August; Series Crackdown 10.0 and Trope-ical Readathon 3.0. In this post I will share my TBR for the Trope-ical Readathon.
What is it?
The Trope-ical Readathon is a team-based readathon, with general prompts, team prompts and a team read. You get points for every challenge you finish and try to gather the most points with your team. Details can be found on Jenny’s blog.
When is it?
August 1 – August 31 2020
What are the challenges?
These are the general challenges. You can read a book with the given trope or one that fulfills the alternative prompt. Apart from that, there are five teams. Each team has it’s own team captain, team book and team challenges. I’m joining the Contemporary / Literary / Historical Fiction team.
There is an alternative team book, because this one has a release date in the middle of August. The alternative is A Burning by Megha Majumdar, which has been on my wishlist for quite some time now.
I have picked options from my shelves (and some from my wishlist) for every challenge. Last month was a record setting month for me, with ?? books finished, so that means sixteen books i a stretch. But, I do have a lot of time off in August and I like to have options, so we’ll see how far I’ll get.
