I have been wanting to do a read-a-thon for a while now but honestly I’m just not that into the whole “read as much of this this as you can in a week!”. I’ve finally convinced myself to suck it up and DO ONE! I chose to do the #ayearathon challenge for this month.
December 7-13: Graphic Novels/Mangas/Comic Books/Picture Books
This is the perfect challenge for me! If you read my post about Expanding my Horizons you will know that graphic novels/comics/manga are simply not my go to. I don’t like the pictures. . . I know. Weird. It’s my curse. BUT LO #ayearathon is here to get my ass in gear!
With the help of the boyfriend I picked out a nice bunch of books for this week. You can check out my TBR in the video below:
Wow, Tarina, breaking into the YouTube game? How original.
Look I know, I’ve just always wanted to.
If my awkward fumbling is too much for you here’s my TBR for this week
- Joe the Barbarian by Grant Morrison & Sean Murphy
- Trillium by Jeff Lemire
- V for Vendetta by Alan Moore & David Lloyd
- Supermarket by Brian Wood Kristian
- Blankets by Craig Thompson
- Habibi by Craig Thompson
I kept the list fairly short because I am in the middle of The Virgins Lover by Phillipa Gregory and I don’t want to be taken from the too much. The Craig Thompson novels are quite sizable so I don’t feel like I’m cheating with a small list!
I’m really looking forward to this little challenge, I want to try to do more read-a-thons next year. I may try to do one each month.
Hopefully I can get better at that video thing because it’s pretty fun. Let me know what you’re reading for this months ayearathon and what you think of my selections!
