Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Did you miss me? Maybe, maybe not but I’m back with a special announcement. This year, I’m co-hosting the Graphics-A-Thon with Ellyn and Destiny. The two already have posts up but since I was on hiatus, mine’s coming a little bit late. Better late then never, I suppose. 😛
Let’s get into the details of the read-a-thon if you haven’t seen Ellyn or Destiny’s posts (which I’m sure you have! Lol) and then we’ll talk about my recs.
FAQs about Graphics-A-Thon

- Who is hosting Graphics-A-Thon?
Before getting started with the recs, I wanted to talk about two other things which are that we have 8 prompts: 5 main prompts and 3 bonus prompts. You don’t have to participate in these as they’re only optional but rather, a guide to help you figure out your TBR.
- Read a book with BIPOC rep
- Read a book with a book with disability and/or mental health rep
- Read a book with queer rep
- Read a spooky book
- Read a book you predict will be 5 stars
As for the bonus prompts, there is
- Read a book that has or will have an adaptation
- Read a book with pink on the cover
- Read a a genre or story you wouldn’t usually reach for
The second thing is that we have a Twitter if you want to talk to us on there. We’ll also be posting a bingo board along with a Google doc of our personal recs so let’s get into my recs.
Ellyn made some fun graphics of our top nine recs so let’s get to the recs part of this post!

Alright friends! This is my official announcement about me being a co-host for the Graphics-A-Thon. In addition, you can also see my recs if you want to use any of them for your TBR. Either way, I’m excited to be participating and I can’t wait to post my TBR when it comes time for that.
