TBR | EBOOKATHON

ToBeRead12:17Surprise! I am taking part in a readathon taking place from May 27th-June 2nd. I came across a post on Victoria’s blog announcing she is hosting a readathon with Brookesbooknook where all you do is read ebooks that have been piling up on an ereader. Since I have a thing where I always buy discount ebooks and then totally forget about them, I thought it would be perfect. Here is my TBR for the readathon!

My TBR

It Starts Like This: a collection of poetry by Shelby Leigh

It Starts Like This: a collection of poetry

A powerful poetry and prose collection about the journey through love, loss, healing, and hope. This book is for anyone who loves deeply, has bad days, and searches for happiness in the world around them. It is for those who have been hurt and have the scars to prove they’re still alive. -goodreads.com

Go: A Coming of Age Novel by Kazuki Kaneshiro translated by Takami Nieda

Go: A Coming of Age Novel

As a Korean student in a Japanese high school, Sugihara has had to defend himself against all kinds of bullies. But nothing could have prepared him for the heartache he feels when he falls hopelessly in love with a Japanese girl named Sakurai. Immersed in their shared love for classical music and foreign movies, the two gradually grow closer and closer.

One night, after being hit by personal tragedy, Sugihara reveals to Sakurai that he is not Japanese—as his name might indicate.

Torn between a chance at self-discovery that he’s ready to seize and the prejudices of others that he can’t control, Sugihara must decide who he wants to be and where he wants to go next. Will Sakurai be able to confront her own bias and accompany him on his journey? -goodreads.com

Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favorite Literary Characters by Mallory Ortberg

Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favorite Literary Characters

Hilariously imagined text conversations—the passive aggressive, the clever, and the strange—from classic and modern literary figures, from Scarlett O’Hara to Jessica Wakefield.

Mallory Ortberg, the co-creator of the cult-favorite website The Toast, presents this whimsical collection of hysterical text conversations from your favorite literary characters. Everyone knows that if Scarlett O’Hara had an unlimited text-and-data plan, she’d constantly try to tempt Ashley away from Melanie with suggestive messages. If Mr. Rochester could text Jane Eyre, his ardent missives would obviously be in all-caps. And Daisy Buchanan would not only text while driving, she’d text you to pick her up after she totaled her car. Based on the popular web-feature, Texts from Jane Eyre is a witty, irreverent mashup that brings the characters from your favorite books into the twenty-first century. -goodreads.com

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1: Cosmic Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis, Steve McNiven, Yves Bigerel, Michael Avon Oeming

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1: Cosmic Avengers

The Guardians of the Galaxy are imposing a new rule: Earth is off limits! What has made this world so important? Join Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Iron Man and more as they fight the foes no single planet’s heroes could withstand! -goodreads.com

The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

The Death of Mrs. Westaway

On a day that begins like any other, Hal receives a mysterious letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. She realizes very quickly that the letter was sent to the wrong person—but also that the cold-reading skills she’s honed as a tarot card reader might help her claim the money.

Soon, Hal finds herself at the funeral of the deceased…where it dawns on her that there is something very, very wrong about this strange situation and the inheritance at the center of it.

Full of spellbinding menace and told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, this is an unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time. -goodreads.com

  1. This sounds like fun! I’m glad there’s a little bit of support going on for ebooks! I will be reading ebooks this week, but I they are three library ebooks. My oldest ebook would have to be Dracula probably because that was one of my free ones from Nook when I got the Nook First Edition back in 2010.

  2. Haha, that’s funny! If you had a Nook, that might be why! Which device do you have? That’s why I love mine. I like my Kindle cause it’s easy to get library books and Netgalley books.

    This is where I wish WordPress has messaging… remember when you told me about my page not showing up for you at all? It’s when you click on my name here. There’s something wrong with the address in my settings and I can’t get it to stop showing the wrong one. I don’t even know how it got dot com instead of wordpress in it…I’m thinking this is an uncool wordpress glitch? Because I know I got the address right the first time. At blogspot it was Colleen’sconclusions.blogspot.com so I knew here it would’ve been .wordpress.com. But it’s just Colleen’sconclusions.com when it shouldn’t be… I don’t know how to fix it since reentering .wordpress.com isn’t working. I got curious about that again.

    1. I had a nook first, then a kindle, then I ended up just using my iPad so I can read off the apps of both. That way I can buy where it is a better deal.

      It seems like the issue is all cleared up now. When I click it, it goes to your blog.

      1. That’s cool! I used to be able to read on a tablet but I can’t anymore. E-readers all the way for me. But that’s still cool you like that! I am pro reading in any format except audiobooks but that’s only because I’m hearing impaired. I’m actually jealous that people can listen to them with no trouble.

        And YAY! I kept trying to fix it and it wouldn’t go through until I signed out then back in. Maybe that’s why my followers are so low? I hope not. I blog for myself mostly still, but I LOVE the community over here vs. blogspot. That makes me happy to hear that it’s fixed.

      2. I turn my tablet into inverted colors to make it easier on my eyes. I used to hate it until then. It used to give me bad headaches and hurt my eyes. That could very much make audiobooks difficult. If you don’t mind me asking did you always have auditory troubles or did it develop when you grew up?

        That might be why, but now that it is fixed you should see it your interactions go up.

      3. I’ve tried that too, but I still prefer ereaders. Nothing wrong with liking what you like though!

        I have been hearing impaired since I was in second grade. Didn’t get hearing aids until later on. I had a lot of ear infections when I was little and I was sick all the time.

        I think I’ve gotten a small handful of followers since I fixed it. People I followed automatically added me back when I went on a following spree this weekend.

      4. I’m finally over getting upset about it. But last week after a hard phone call at work someone asked me what super power I wanted to have if I could have one and I said….super hearing!! So then I wouldn’t have hard phone calls anymore.

      5. Yeah. The phone at work took a little bit to get used to because I never worked with phones before and I’m the one that has to answer it. I’m fine usually with it, I repeat everything that’s being said so I have it accurate. People get annoyed sometimes, but I’d rather make sure I have the right information since we are a newspaper.

        Every once in awhile I do have to get help with the call.

      6. Right! I think my editor likes it, he always listens to me when I spell them back whenever he walks by. I just started doing that because at Panera we got told accuracy matters so I figured that was the same here too.

  3. I feel this would be such a great way to get some arcs in. I have been slacking on e-arcs lately. I have the comic of guardians of the galaxy and I have yet to read that. I really want to get to that. Also The Death of Mrs. Westaway. Yes! Jenna sent me the arc and it should be coming next week. I honestly can’t wait to read it.

    1. I am determined to finish Death of Mrs. Westaway and End of Watch by Tuesday. DOMW is the only ARC I need to finish (can’t wait to hear what you think about it) and review in the near future so I want to attack my older ones.
