Welcome one, welcome all, to my TBR for the upcoming Gilmore Girls Readathon. It takes place from the 1st until the 15th October – the perfect time for the start of Autumn and cosying up with a cup of coffee and a book. Rory Gilmore would be proud! It’s hosted by @livs_library, @pastel_pages, and @mackenzielane_ but you can find out more about the readathon on the readathon Twitter too!
It wouldn’t be a readathon without some themed reading prompts/challenges to based your TBR on and this readathon is no exception to that fun. So, let’s take a look at my TBR, shall we?
A book with a school setting
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
✓ A mother/daughter relationship book
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood ✓ Any cosy book set during fall/winter
Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks A book with complicated love interests
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater SWAP: The Gap of Time: A Novel by Jeanette Winterson
A book by an Asian author or has Asian representation
The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang
The next book in a series you haven’t finished (rereading) yet
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
A book with food on the cover or is a crucial part to the storyline
Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu
After what has been a pretty dismal reading month in September I’m really hoping this themed readathon will help me feel inspired to finish some more books in October. That’s the hope anyway! I’ll likely update my reading over on Twitter so be sure to follow me there for all the progress updates.
