Trope-ical Readathon (August 2021) TBR

If you follow me on Twitter (or if you’ve clicked the Trope-ical Readathon Info tab on my blog) then you know that my partner and I host a month-long readathon in March and August.

The readathon is team-based with six teams:

  • Team Romance
  • Team Science Fiction
  • Team Fantasy
  • Team Mystery/Horror/Thriller
  • Team Contemporary/Literary/Historical Fiction
  • Team Non-Fiction/Poetry

I am part of Team Romance which means the prompts I have to satisfy are the following:

There are two ways to satisfy a Common Challenge: either the book has the given trope OR it satisfies the alternate prompt. To challenge myself as much as possible, my TBR is solely based on tropes and not on any of the alternate prompts.

Without further ado, here is my planned TBR!

Additional Books:
In addition to the above books, I also have several books I need to read during the month for reviews/tours. I’m also planning on reading one team book from each team.
