Short-a-thon TBR!

Short-a-thon is a read-a-thon being hosted by Howling Libraries and Books and Munches between the 21st and 31st of December. The aim is to read the shortest books on your TBR.


Yeah! A TBR!

As a rule for myself, all the books on this TBR are going to be 250 pages or under.


Answering Back edited by Carol Ann Duffy (144 pages)

This is a poetry collection of original poems side by side with a response to those poems.

Adios, Nirvana by Conrad Wesselhoeft (240 pages)

All I know is that this book focuses on grief and music, two things that I love to read about.

Doom Rolled in Glitter by Leena Norms (40 pages)

A poetry zine!

My Hero Academia Vigilantes Volume 5&6 by Hideyuki Furuhashi (192 pages)

Standard. These are on my December TBR, so they are top priority, but it shouldn’t take me too long to read them.

My Hero Academia Volume 21 by Kohei Horikoshi (200 pages)

Another one on my December TBR!

No.6 Volume 6 by Atsuko Asano (176 pages)

If anyone is still looking for things to add to their TBRs for this read-a-thon, this is one of my favourite manga of all time.

The Summer is Ended and We Are Not Yet Saved by Joey Comeau (225 pages)

A small slasher novel that I am very much looking forward to.

Kissing the Witch by Emma Donoghue (148 pages)

Short fairytale retellings! Perfect for a read-a-thon!

Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire (174 pages)

This is one of my audiobook choices. Even though I love the first two books, I never ended up picking up what came after, so I want to listen to this to decide if I want to carry on the series after taking a break for so long.

All Systems Red by Martha Wells (144 pages)

I’ve actually listened to the first chapter in audiobook form, so this will be me actually dedicating myself and finishing it. I wasn’t really into listening to audiobooks but I’ve fallen back in love with it since, so finger’s crossed!

The Vegetarian by Han Kang (188 pages)

One of my more recent purchases, and the one I’m hesitantly putting on my TBR. It’ll be lowest priority for this month, so even if I don’t get to it, I’ll read it in January/February.
