You might have seen a couple of weeks ago, my post announcing that I have my first readathon planned for next month. I’m really excited and I hope you’ll join in. There’s 25 prompts, a bingo board and two prizes up for grabs. Hopefully, it’ll be a great final push before Christmas preparations take over my life. If you’re interested in joining me, all the details are in this post.

Since I love over-planning my TBRs, I’ve been giving some thought to my own reading for the challenges. I should probably have thought of this before I announced the prompts, because some were really difficult for me! Haha! Because I’m a mood reader, this is a tentative TBR (which, as I said in the previous post, is totally acceptable) which should give me a lot of options and wiggle room. This is my third draft, because I’ve been so inspired by everyone else’s TBR. I think I’m settled on these now though…

I’ll be aiming for three bingo lines, but I’m not sure which yet.

So here’s my TBR plans.
