I believe I’ve mentioned before how cool it is to be a part of the book blogging community, but though I’ve done book memes galore and comment when I can, I haven’t quite done a true group activity.
That’s changing from January 1st to 15th, when I’ll be taking part in the Dumbledore’s Army readathon, hosted by Read At Midnight! Sign ups are open during December, so head over there and check out the details if you’re interested.
So, the #DAReadAThon is a Harry Potter themed readathon, focusing on diverse books (especially #ownvoices books). Books read and activities participated in earn you points for the house you sign up with!
Here’s my sign up card:
And here’s my to-read list for the readathon:
The Bell Jar has been on my to-read list for ages, and it’s definitely an #ownvoices book. I don’t recall ever reading a book in which the main character’s depression is centred upon, and I’m eager to do so.
I haven’t ever read a book with a transgender main character, but this one is an #ownvoices pick – and its supposed to be really good. Looking forward to picking it up!
I’ve had this on my shelf for a while, but haven’t yet read it. Another #ownvoices book, there’s no better time to tackle it than during this readathon!
This short ebook is based on my favourite Ted Talk of all time, and I’m really looking forward to seeing it expanded upon.
A former Canada Reads selection, this canlit pick has been sitting on my shelf for far too long! Another #ownvoices pick as well.
I’ve had my eye on this award winner for a very long time. Another #ownvoices pick, this time also a YA title. Right up my alley!
Now it’s time for you to help me out! Comment below to recommend a great #ownvoices pick for me to check out during this readathon!
