Hey y’all! Today I wanted to talk about the books that I want to read for the Get Shit Done Readathon. The Get Shit Done Readathon takes place from January 1 -31. And the object of the readathon is to jump-start your reading year. There are 6 challenges and one bonus challenge.
1. Read a book from a subscription box.
2. Read a book that’s been on your TBR the longest.
3. Read a classic.
4. Read a book that you previously put down.
5. Start or end a series.
6. Read a book that was sent for review or as a gift.
Bonus: A book fulfilling 3 or more prompts.
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent – I have had this book on my TBR forever and I even have the audiobook but I still haven’t read it. This is a historical fiction that follows the last woman sentenced to death in Iceland. It’s actually cold in Texas, so this should be the perfect atmospheric read. (Challenge: A book that’s been on your TBR the longest.)
We Hunt the Flames by Hafsah Faizal – This is a book of the month book I received last year. I haven’t heard much about this, but I the synopsis sounds like something I would rally enjoy. (Challenges: A book from a subscription box and start of finish a series.)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain – This is my library book club selection for this month. I haven’t read this book since middle school, so I’m interested to see what I think about it as an adult and I can’t wait to discuss it with my book club. (Challenge: Read a classic.)
I’m Still Hear by Austin Channing Brown – This is an essay collection that I got from Netgalley a long time ago and I really want to get to it as soon as possible. It’s short and I could probably read it in one sitting. (Challenges: A book you put down and a review book.)
These are the four books that I hope to complete for this readathon. I tried to keep this reasonable because my January TBR is a bit ambitious. Also, I plan to participate in the Smutathon too.
Are you participating in any readathons this month? What is your TBR for the Get Shit Done Readathon? Let’s chat in the comments.
