Grinchathon 2019 TBR Announcement

This month I am participating in the Grinchathon!

Grinchathon is a readathon, hosted by punkrockgirlpa from December 15-December 21. There are 7 reading challenges and 7 photo challenges. The reading challenges are purposely vague because the goal is to make them count for whatever you want to read.

Here are the 7 reading challenges:

  1. Green and Black
  2. Diverse
  3. Warm
  4. Pictures
  5. Short
  6. Dying To Read
  7. Dark

With that said, here is my TBR for Grinchathon!

Wayward Son

This book will be counting for “Pictures”, “Dying to Read”, and “Dark”. It’s a book that I’ve been wanting to read for a long time and it was a huge hassle to get. My partner preordered the book but after getting the original copy we discovered that Barnes and Noble had an exclusive edition with a better cover. We returned the original and tried to get the B&N version only to find out our local store didn’t have it anymore! On top of that, B&N refused to ship it to Hawaii! We eventually were able to get a family member to mail it to us from the mainland. The sad part was literally right after we received it in the mail, our local store started restocking it…

I’m counting it for “Pictures” because we got a different cover than the original and also because the book is separated into parts with each part being indicated by a drawing. The reason I’m counting it for “Dark” is because the B&N edition features the night sky as it’s cover.

I Hope You Get This Message

I received this book in an Owl Crate box and it sounds really interesting. It’s been on my TBR shelf for a while and I thought that the cover made it a good choice for the “Green and Black” challenge.

Something Like Gravity

This was one of the books that I borrowed from the library when I went on a “I WANT TO ONLY READ CHEESY LOVE STORIES” binge. I chose this book for “Diverse” because one of the MCs is trans and it will be my first book with a trans MC.

Heat Wave

Heat Wave is counting for “Warm” and “Short”. My partner recommended this book to me a while ago and I never got around to reading it. He says it’s a page turner which is why I’m counting it for “Short” and the title is literally Heat Wave so I feel safe counting it for the “Warm” prompt as well.

    Looks fun! I laughed when I read about your troubles with Wayward Son, but you’re totally right, the night edition is much prettier! Enjoy the read, I loved it!
