Disney-A-Thon TBR (Aladdin, The Lion King, Mulan, Tangled)

My Disney-A-Thon TBR + A Useful Spreadsheet

I used to be terrified of readathons. Making a strict TBR and sticking to it had always intimidated me, and honestly, it still does. But then I joined the Reading Rush last month, and actually had a really good time (even though I didn’t read all 7 books). So now, I’m hoping to do the same thing with the Disney-A-Thon.

I mean, Disney kinda is the one true love of my life, so I feel like I have to.

If you haven’t heard of the Disney-A-Thon, it’s a readathon that takes place over the month of August. You pick a team (go team Tangled!), and complete challenges to earn points. Each team has their own list of challenges, but once you finish those, you can do other team’s challenges.

If you want more info, check out the Disney-A-Thon on twitter (@disneyreadathon)!

Also, if you’re doing the Disney-A-Thon, I created a spreadsheet that can help you organize your TBR and keep track of your points.

[In case twitter isn’t working- here’s a link to the spreadsheet]

Okay, enough background info, let’s get started talking about my TBR!

12 Summer Romances (6 YA + 6 Adult)

Okay, before I start, I’ve already lied to you. Well, I misled you.

Technically, some of these books don’t take place during summer, so they aren’t all exactly “summer” romances. That said, they all give me a summer vibe, and I would read all of them on a beach, so I think they count.

For me, summer is the perfect time to dive into romances. I always start my summer with a list of cute rom-coms on my TBR, but come August, I’ve completely gone through it.

I figured I can’t be the only one with this problem, so I’ve compiled a different list of a few of my favorites that you can add to your TBR this summer!

Read more to see 6 summer YA romances, plus 6 summer adult/new adult romances!

Book Release Round Up – 16 LGBTQ+ 2019 Releases

I’m at Pride in NYC today so I thought I should celebrate by, once again, talking about some LGBTQ+ books.

I’m always looking for more LGBTQ+ reads, and 2019 is really stepping up to the plate, so I thought I should compile a list of some great books that I loved or hope to love.

Normally, I would write out a full synopsis for each book, but since I want to talk about quite a few of them (and my synopses always end up a little wordy) I’m just going to try and describe a book to the best of my ability in under 5 words. Let’s see how this goes. Every book will have a Goodreads link in case you want to see the full description of the book!

Alright, lets get started!

What’s New in May? (Top 10 May 2019 Book Releases)

Yes, I know this is super late. I usually try to post these the week before the month actually starts, so I’m a little off. Just blame finals and theater. Now that all of that is over, I’m getting back to my normal schedule and ready to talk about all of the new releases from this month (in no particular order)!

Note: While I usually talk about YA, not all of these on this list are. I’ll label the couple of adult books that are listed here to make it clear!
