Make Me Read It Read-a-Thon Progress

make me read it read-a-thon

This is hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley. Here’s some information from Val’s Blog: “Basically, this readathon allows your friends and audience to vote for what you’ll be reading. This year, the readathon will be from July 9th to the 16th! So that will give you guys a month and a half to set up voting and polls and all that.”

I wanted to say thank you first to everyone who voted on my poll in my Sign Up Post! And now for my reading list, in order from top to bottom, of the books I’ll be reading for this!

1. Six of Crows, 2. The Martian, 3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, 4. Red Rising

I only chose the top four because I don’t think I’ll have time to read more than that, but if you’re wondering what the rest of the order is you can go to my sign up post and the poll is there. Below I will be posting my progress during the week and I’ll update it daily. I will also be adding updates on my Twitter and Goodreads.
