I had the privilege of joining #ayearathon group on GoodReads last year, that even if I wasn’t able to join the readathons during the second half of the year, I still want to be an active member of the group. For the simple reason of keeping myself on track with the themes and the books I want to read, I decided to lay it all out here, so if you want to join, just feel free to do so.

NOVEMBER 07 to 13 – 2016 Debut Authors
- No TBR for this theme yet; I still don’t know which books are making their debut release this year.
DECEMBER 05 to 11 – Graphic Novels, Comics, Manga
- No TBR for this theme yet; I might not do this because I don’t own any graphic novels.
I only set three books per theme as I feel it is more realistic that way, except for September’s theme. Since that one has less than 100 pages, I feel I can read one book a day during the weekday. This is just a proposed / planned TBR, I might change it once the event comes up, or I might add more books if I get to finish with time to spare.
