Cramathon 2018

Because I need another readathon to fail this year, I'm going to do the Cramathon Readathon! The point of this readathon is to catch up on your reading goals for the year. My reading goal was 50 books for 2018. I've read 66 as of today, so I don't necessarily feel any rush, but I'm joining all the readathons I can while I can.

The Cramathon runs from December 22nd to the 28th. That's tomorrow! Better get myself sorted.


A book under 200 pages - I think for this one, I will read Disasters of Onandage County by Neil K. MacMillan. This is the last of the Syracuse books I picked up while I was there. Better get it read before I forget what I saw.

A book you meant to read in 2018, but never did - This is definitely Still Life by Louise Penny. I have meant to read this for about 2 years. It's short. I should probably get going.

A book with POC representation - I have lots of options for this one, but the most fun one is Pride by Ibi Zoboi. It is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice set in current day Bronx. Also, it will probably be on the reading list for the book award I'm doing next year.

Read a book with silver on the cover - This one is a struggle. I really should read Strange the Dreamer but that one is really long. I have one called An Everywhere: A Little Book About Reading that has a silver lamp on the cover. It is quite short, so I might go for that one.

Shortest book on your TBR - That is definitely Iron to Iron by Ryan Graudin. It is a novella that goes after Wolf by Wolf which I read and loved a few years ago about an alternate history in which Hitler won WWII and a girl's plan to kill him. This book has 104 pages.

Group Read - The group read is a book called The Afterlife of Holly Chase which I don't own and can't get from the library before the Cramathon is over. The instructions say to do one of the other challenges twice in that case, so I'll do that. I'm going to choose another book I meant to read this year. I'm going to cheat a little bit and choose One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus because I'm already halfway through it and I can finish that right up.

Read 7 books total - I'm going to use The Hour of Land by Terry Tempest Williams for this one since this is the only book I'm definitely trying to cram in by the end of the year.

Huzzah! My Cramathon TBR is set!

If you were going to do this readathon, what would you choose?
