Posted February 12, 2017 by Madalyn || 14 Comments

I’m so excited to be participating in the Bookentine ReadAThon, hosted by Ely & Michelle @ Tea & Titles. This readathon runs from Monday, February 13th to Monday, February 20th, and it focuses on reading contemporary novels.

the challenges

  • Read a book with red and/or pink on the cover.
  • Read a book by an author you haven’t read before.
  • Read a book featuring mental illness or disability.

  • Pink on the cover: We Are Okay by Nina Lacour // I have adored all of Nina Lacour’s previous books, and I’m sure this one will be no different! She writes some of my favorite stories about queer girls. Bonus: this one comes out next week, on Valentine’s Day.
  • Author I haven’t read before: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis // I can’t believe I’ve never read a book by Minday McGinnis! I bought this one in an ebook deal a few months back after hearing nothing but rave reviews from some of my most-trusted bookish friends, so I’m excited to finally pick this one up. It supposedly offers brutally honest commentary on rape culture.
  • Book featuring mental illness: Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner // I loved Zentner’s debut, The Serpent King, and I hear this one tugs at your heart strings just as much. The main character in Goodbye Days struggles with panic attacks in the aftermath of the death of a close friend, and the book discusses both therapy and medication.

There you have it! Are you participating in Bookentine this year? If so, what’s on your TBR? Have you read any of these books?

    I’m participating too! Good luck 😀

    The Female of the Species is one I really want to read one day too. I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂

    • Yay! Good luck to you, as well! I already finished The Female of the Species, and it was fantastic (but super, super dark).

  • I love your TBR!!! Can’t wait to see what you think of them. Good luck!

    • Ooh, I’m interested in all three of those, but especially Written in the Stars! I actually went to the author’s launch party for that book when it came out, but I STILL have yet to read it. I’m glad to hear you loved it!!

  • Good luck with your challenge! I’ve hearing amazing things about The Female of the Species. It’s on my TBR, can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it! Goodbye Days is new to me but it sounds like a great read! Hope all three are awesome!

    • Thanks so much! I’ve already finished The Female of the Species, and it was dark but wonderful. I love Jeff Zentner’s writing, so I’m hoping Goodbye Days is just as great as his debut.

  • Good luck with the read-a-thon! I’m participating as well, so far I’ve read one book. I’m dying to read we are okay though, so I can’t wait to see what you think about it!
