Cramathon is a read-a-thon hosted by Dylan, Julia, Ali, and Jay. (Twitter linked) It is a 7 day read-a-thon (June 10-17) in which you try to read 7 books, there are challenges you can follow if you want but you don't have to. I'll go ahead and list the challenges then get into my TBR!
1. A Predicted 5 Star Read
2. A Book That's Out Of Your Comfort Zone
3. A Book That's Outside Your Comfort Zone
4. A LGBTQ+ Ownvoices Book
5. Something That's Not A Standard Novel
6. A book With Your Favorite Colour On The Cover
7. READ 7 BOOKS!
I currently only have 6 books on my TBR for this Cramathon because I used one of my books for 2 challenges. I'm going to stick with 6 for now, because these aren't very short books.
The first book I used for challenges 1 and 6, and that is No Safety in Numbers by Dayna Lorentz. (I like books where people are trapped somewhere and have to figure out what to do when their supplies are running out, (kind of like the TV show the mist), and my favourite colour is yellow)
For Challenge 2, I decided on Yellowcake by Margo Lanagan. (I don't typically read short story collections, and I saw this one at a dollar tree a long time ago and it sounded interesting)
The book for challenge 3 has been on my Goodreads TBR since January 2016 and that is Hungry by H.A. Swain. (I think I picked this one up because of the cover...well and the premise I suppose. It's about a future where there is no need for food, everyone takes a medication to ward off hunger)
I wanted to read Peter, Darling for the LGBTQ+ Ownvoices but my library doesn't have it, neither does overdrive and I don't have the money to buy it so I decided to go with a book I forgot that I have which is Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.
For something that is not a Standard Novel I went with Violent ends, written by a bunch of authors and edited by Shaun David Hutchinson. (this has been on my shelf for a while, but I've never had the urge to pick it up until now. It's not a standard novel because it's by so many (17) authors a few of which I really like (Neal Susterman in particular)
and for the final challenge of read 7 books, (in my case it's 6), I put Gone by Michael Grant on my list. (I read this a long time ago [before I had goodreads, because It's not on my read list already] and really enjoyed it, so I decided to go ahead and read it again, maybe I'll finish the series this time!)
So there are my 6 books I want to read for Cramathon! It starts in 2 days and I will try and keep you updated on my progress throughout the read-a-thon.
P.S. I am currently reading the long walk and wanted to take a little break and read something else. So I started reading No Safety in Numbers, Got about 40 ish pages in before I remembered that I want to read it for the read-a-thon, so back to the long walk it is.
