Look at me, showing up not-late
with Starbucks for once in my life! (Though just so we’re clear, my “coffee” order is usually a tea latte. Or sometimes a seasonal frappucino.)
But anyway, I’m super excited to be joining the Coffee Readathon, hosted in September by Haley @ The Caffeinated Reader and Jayati @ It’s Just a Coffee Addicted Bibliophile. They’ve got fun coffee-themed prompts and a gorgeous rewards card, so make sure to check it out if you haven’t already!
The only way my commitment issues will play nice with a readathon TBR is if I list multiple options and give myself an out, so here’s the disclaimer that I may end up using any or none of the books listed below (which are drawn from my owned-TBR as much as possible).
And of course I’m going for the bonus prompts. If the day ever comes when I don’t make things as difficult as possible for myself, you’ll know something is wrong and I need to be rescued.
LATTE being the most popular coffee drink, read a hyped book.
