Make Me Read It Read-a-Thon!

So on Goodreads, I have seen all of these people asking what they should read for "Make Me Read It." Naturally, I was intrigued, but wasn't finding any info on it on Goodreads. Thank god for Google! It led me to The Innocent Smiley, a blog run by Val, who partners with Ely (Tea & Titles) who started the read-a-thon last year and decided to do it again this year.



How It Works

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.

Make a list of these books and then have friends, family, and other bibliophiles pick which ones you HAVE to read. Use the tag #MakeMeRead on social media!

The books with the most votes is read first, the book with the second most votes is read next, etc. If there is a tie between books, it's your personal preference of which you read first.

When Does it Take Place?

The Read-a-Thon takes place from July 9th to July 16th.

So without further ado, here are the books! Please vote, even if you haven't read any of them, pick the one that sounds the coolest. And feel free to join along!

What should I read for the #MakeMeRead Read-a-Thon?

The Star-Touched Queen
Matched
Red Queen
This is Where it Ends
A Tale of Two Besties
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

I was really excited for this book. I have the day-by-day calendar and I love it. It's posts are quick and witty and there's a bonus on the back of every day that tells you something interesting, or is a little puzzle, or something to get you thinking. It's great. The book version was...a let down, for a few reasons.


How Not To
So yeah, I get how repetition is good in a self help book, but this was a bit too much. If I never hear any of these phrases again, it'll be too soon: subconscious mind, conscious mind, love yourself, change your thinking, become aware. Almost every chapter contains a list of what you're supposed to do to realize that you are a badass, and every list contains all of those in some form or another. By about chapter 6, I got it.There are a lot of "I" statements, and not the kind that instruct you to change how you structure your thoughts (those are there, too, just not as much). You Are a Badass is an autobiography of Jen Sincero's

Wrecked by Maria Padian

Wow! Just wow! That is how I felt when I finished Wrecked. I felt wrecked. There was so much truth and accuracy in this book on rape culture; Maria Padian really hit the nail on the head. It was almost sickening reading about it and knowing that it is that correct. This book really needs to be on a high school reading list. I know it won't because of the subject matter, but that's a different story. This book is really incredible and I believe anyone about to go into college, anyone in college, anyone who just got out of college, anyone who parties hard a lot, or anyone who is a friend or family member of anyone who fits the aforementioned groups should read this book.


Plot
The book is told in alternating perspectives of Haley and Richard as they work through a campus investigation of two other students: Jenny and Jordan. Haley and Jenny are roommates; Richard and Jordan live in the same housing unit; Haley and Richard are just starting a relationship. Everything becomes compli…

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts One and Two by JK Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne

Dear Darlings, I'm so sorry I have been completely MIA. I said I'd be back a long time ago and then I dropped off the face of the earth. Life has been busy, and honestly, I have been in such a book slump lately that looking at my books makes me sad because they aren't being read and then I don't want to read because I'm sad and it's just a vicious cycle. But hopefully it's almost past. So without further ado, here is my review of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the only book I've been able to read in its entirety in the past 6 weeks.


Five Sentence Summary
It's been 19 years since the Golden Trio took down Voldemort at the Battle of Hogwarts; Ron runs the joke shop with George, Hermione is the Minister of Magic, and Harry is a successful auror. However, the story revolves mostly around Harry and Ginny's son, Albus, and Draco's son, Scorpious, who, at the start of the book, are about to enter their first year at Hogwarts and are both sorted …
