Make Me Read It Readathon Signup and Poll

I just stumbled across this readathon on Grace's blog, Rebel Mommy Book Blog! The readathon is hosted by Ely and Val @ The Innocent Smiley. More information and sign ups are located here. Here is the info, straight from The Innocent Smiley:
What Is This Readathon About?
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you've borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I'd pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.
Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers/bookstagrammers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there's a tie, then it's your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible. 


When Will This All Take Place?
The Make Me Read It Readathon will start at August 6th and end at August 13thYou can start once it hits 12am in your time zone. The readathon itself lasts for a week!Since this is an interactive readathon, there is about a month to get some kind of initial post/photo/video/etc. where your readers can vote for which book you read! You can either have a poll, or just rely on the comments, have votes count more than once, honestly this is all up to you! If you plan to participate, make sure you have all your books ready for August 6th!
Do you wanna sign up for the readathon! This is the place to do it! I would recommend linking up with your post/video/photo about the books you are using for the readathon, so that other readers can hop around and vote!

You can use the tag #MakeMeRead on Twitter and Instagram to post photos of your choices, or connect to other readers in general! I'll be posting my poll on instagram instead of here (mainly due to there not being many great options for embedded polls these days), so look for it there!

  5. The only one of these I've heard of is To All the Boys, and I actually wasn't a huge fan (though lots of other people are). So, I just voted based on cover. :-) I chose Lilac Girls.
