#TBRTakeDown Readathon

I came across #TBRTakeDown on twitter, it is being hosted by the lovely Shannon from Leaning Lights. I decided it would be fun to join in this week! It runs from June 1-7 and she is also doing different challenges to help choose what books you may want to read!

For more info check out her video:

I decided that I’m going to participate in the challenges and hopefully I can get through all of them this week! Check out what I plan to read below! 😀



#1  A Book Out of My Comfort Zone

This is not a title I would have typically picked out for myself but a few friends of mine told me it was worth the read so I ordered it a while back but haven’t quite got around to it yet!

 #2  A Book That’s Been on My Shelf for a Year

It’s just been sitting there, alongside Fangirl, so I think this would be a great time to give it a shot!


#3 First in a Series 

So technically this is the first of a set of companion novels BUT let’s count it! I received Off the Page (the companion novel) from the publisher not too long ago and really want to read this one first!

#4 Sequel 

SO….I’ve been putting this one off for quite a while now. VA and BL series really hold a special place in my book nerd heart, ESPECIALLY ADRIAN, and I’ve just refused to read this because I don’t want to let these characters or this world go. It’s time to face it my friends.

#5 Book from Recent Book Haul

This is one I received recently from Penguin and I’m doing an interview with the author so thought I would get it in this week!


Are you planning to participate in #TBRTakeDown ? Let me know what you are planning to read below!

    This is so cool! Hoping I can complete this even with work and school! I’m thinking about using these books:
    Book that’s been on my shelf for a year-Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
    Sequel-Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout
    First in a Series-Dream a Little Dream by Kirstin Gier
    Things might change though!

    I read Tuck Everlasting a year or two ago — super quick read, and actually quite beautiful! I heard the movie’s actually really nice too. And you can never go wrong with Rainbow Rowell — I preferred Fangirl and Attachments to Eleanor & Park, but that’s not to say E&P wasn’t an addictive, fun read. Good luck with the take down, you have some great picks!

      I finished Tuck last night, I wish the ending had been a little different but enjoyed it overall! I’m just starting E&P tonight, I still need to read Fangirl also.

  3. Carina Olsen says:

    Yay 😀 Sounds like a fun thing to do 🙂 Hope you are loving all the books Crystal. <3 Yay for E&P 😀 I loved that book a whole lot. Happy reading sweet girl. <3

  4. Irene says:

    I should’ve participated in this one, but I didn’t think I’d read much this week – so far I’m on my fifth book, so I guess I was wrong! 😉 Good luck on your readathon and I hope you’ll adore Eleanor & Park!

    The idea of this read-a-thon is pretty cool, and I like how it features books in categories that are personal to you as well. Hope it goes well!
