My 2018 Dewey’s #Readathon TBR! What Will You Be Reading?

So why the seaside picture, you ask, for Dewey’s? Well… Let me just pull out this oldie, but goodie for you – a picture I made literally during my first week of blogging:


Do you like it?!!! I know you do. You’ve GOT TO like it. It’s just SUCH a pun.

*blushes over awkwardness of self*

And this is literally what my Dewey’s will be this year! Because, although I was planning on just sitting on my beanbag and reading all day, unexpectedly – I am at the seaside, and although the weather is cold – I am loving it, and I am SO hell bent on still doing the readathon tomorrow!

I know it won’t be easy, out and about! But I have my loveliest boyfriend to safeguard me while I walk and read, and he’s promised to take check-in photos or me! So we’ll see where this goes, and it might even be more fun than I thought it would be! Bring it on.

And meanwhile, I’ve laid out a little TBR for myself. It contains… Only 20 items! Hold your horses, I won’t be reading them all (or will I?) – I just wanted to have some choice in what I read. I also followed the rule of “pick short reads for a feeling of accomplishment” – so I did! While my books are all electronic, both because I’m traveling and because those are basically 90% of what I own, so I can’t give you a nice TBR bookstagram photo, I’ve arranged them in little groups based on the type of read they are!

19 of these books are backlist, so they will be able to count for my #BeatTheBacklist challenge, and 7 of them are ARCs, so they’ll also count for this month’s State of the ARC! Let’s see how many of these I can read tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Will you be participating in Dewey’s? And what will you be reading?
