Joining in on readathons with like minded and really cool readers is a great way to enjoy and get more from your reading life. One of my friends Jayati is hosting ‘The Coffee Readathon‘, and since I love my coffee, I thought this was a cool way to read all the books I’ve been receiving as part of my pre-orders and recent orders! If you’re interested in joining in, check out the details of the readathon here 🙂 I do hope you join in. The more, the merrier!
So here’s my TBR (proposed TBR) for the prompts of the Readathon. I’ll write a wrap up post at the end of September to see if I managed to read all the books I’ve listed, or changed any, or read more or less 🙂
Update: I read 6 out of 7 books and here’s my updated coffee reward card!! woo hoo!
LATTE: Lattes being the most popular coffee drink, read a hyped book
Update: I read The Poppy War and it was my favorite read of the month! Review here
ICED COFFEE: A summer read and Iced Coffee is the perfect combination!
Update: I actually didn’t end up reading either of these books for this prompt. Instead I read Neil Gaiman’s Fortunately the milk, for this prompt 🙂
TURKISH COFFEE: A traditional coffee with special preparation, read a book written by an author of middle eastern origin
Update: Oh I loved this book so much! This was my feel good read and recommendation for the month 🙂 Review here.
ESPRESSO ROMANO: A coffee with a lemon flavour, read a book with a unique plot
Update: My first Marie Lu book and I enjoyed this re-imagined fictional account of the Mozart siblings. Review here.
CAFE CREMA: Uncommon in cafe menus, read a book with less than 750 ratings on Goodreads
Update: This was the prompt I couldn’t finish and I’m bummed about that. But hopefully I’ll get to read this book soon 🙂
CAFE CON LECHE: Common drink in the hispanic communities around the world, read a book written by a Latinx author
Update: I really wanted to read Cemetery Boys but I kept waiting for the physical copy to be available and then it was too late and then I realised I already have a copy of Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo, so I read that instead and loved it. Review here.
VIETNAMESE ICED COFFEE: An Asian invention, read a book set in Asia
Update: What a brilliant translated work of non fiction drama. Highly recommend it to all feminists. Review here.
So, what do you guys think of my list? Are any of these books in your list too? I think I might stick to this list more or less since I have copies of most of these books already, unless I get influenced by other readers and pick up something else 😀
I also think this will be all of my September reading too and it’ll take a miracle and some magic to get me the time to read all of these books but I really do want to read all of these books!! 🙂 So excited for September!
