Make Me Read It Read-A-Thon 2017

Make Me Read It Read-A-Thon is hosted by Ely and Val.

What is #MakeMeRead?

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 is it?

This year the read-a-thon will be running from August 6th through to August 13th. You can start reading as soon as it hits 12am in your timezone, or whenever you’d like.
Remember that the idea is to have people vote on your books, so try and get that post/Twitter poll/photo up as soon as possible in order to give your fellow participants the chance to vote!

Since I'm combining this with #Unhaulathon, all of these books have been sitting on my shelves for a while. Here are the books to pick from!
Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief, #1)  Scarlet (Scarlet, #1)  Earth's End (Air Awakens, #3) The Stars Never Rise (The Stars Never Rise, #1)  Mind Games (Mind Games, #1)  The Almost Girl (The Riven Chronicles, #1)  Altered (Altered, #1)  The Scorpio Races  All These Things I've Done (Birthright, #1) Half Bad (The Half Bad Trilogy, #1)

There should be a link for each book to its Goodreads page, if everything worked out correctly!

And here's the poll!

Let me know what you plan to read and what you thought of these books! Good luck!
