Okay, okay, I know. I’m the queen of putting myself under too much pressure, and I’ve sworn that writing out my monthly TBR would be enough, but last year I enjoyed each of the readathons I did so much, that I’ve decided last minute to jump in on the Trope-ical Readathon. There’s still time for you to join in too! If you haven’t heard of it before, you can find all the information in the link above, but I’ll also be posting the graphic with the categories as well as listing them with my choices below.
Here is the graphic with the challenges. I’ll be posting a list of them, along with my choices, underneath.
- Absent/Dead Parent(s) Trope. Alternatively, read a book that has more than one “parent” (i.e. multiple authors).
- War Setting Trope. Alternatively, read a book that you can use as a weapon. I.e. a book that is over 500 pages.

I’m not expecting to be able to read every book I’ve listed, or manage all of those PLUS my March TBR, PLUS all of the ARCs I’ve currently got to read too, but I’m going to make the most of the way through it, and enjoy it while I can!
