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

Black Obsidian by Victoria Quinn

When I first started this review, I wasn't really sure what I was going to write, but then as I started thinking about it, I really did not like the book. This is why:

It's your typical toned down erotica novel; it's a carbon copy of Fifty Shades, just with different names. I feel like it started out strong, but once Calloway starts falling for this girl who "won't understand his lifestyle," it went downhill fast.I am so sick of rich men using their means to track down this one girl. It's creepy. If some man did that to me, I'd be filing a restraining order, not crawling into bed with him.I am also sick of the man trying to control every aspect of the woman's life before they have signed a contract. Calloway, you are Rome's boyfriend, not her Dom; you can't buy her a house because her apartment was broken into. Again, restraining order, not bed. And even when there's a contract between a Dom and a sub, there are soft and hard limits, a…

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

I received Behind Her Eyes from Book of the Month a few months ago, and after finishing Night Film, another psychological thriller, I was ready for this one. I love the entire book-the characters, the plot, the authors writing style. And then I read the last three chapters and my love for the book deflated. I have never been so let down by an ending in my entire life. It's funny how just a few pages can ruin an entire book for you.

Behind Her Eyes follows Louise, a single mother who is stuck in a rut, and Adele, the new girl in town who seems to have her shit together. And of course there is a man. David met Louise in a bar one night and they shared an amazing kiss. David is married to Adele. Oh, and when Louise goes to work on Monday, she finds out that David is her new boss. Nothing awkward about that. It gets worse when Adele bumps into Louise and invites her to coffee and they become friends. But Adele makes Louise promise that she won't tell David about their friendship b…
