Women’s History Month Readathon TBR

Have you heard the news? I’m hosting a readathon in March: the Women’s History Month Readathon! The goal is to read books written by women during the month of March, and if you want to find out more about it, check out the announcement post.

I’ve created a bingo board of challenges for this readathon, and today I’m going to be talking about all of the books I hope to read over the course of the month. Here are the challenges:

whm board

I’ve managed to create a TBR of nine books that allow me to hit almost all of the challenges! The only one I don’t have a book for is a book with a female villain because honestly it’s often hard to tell before you read the book. Let me know if you know if any of the books on my TBR have a female villain!

Now here are all of the books I plan to read for this readathon and the challenges they fulfill…

If you want to join in with this readathon but you don’t have ideas for what books to read, you’re in luck: on Twitter, I’ve been creating recommendation threads for books that fit each challenge. There’s quite a bit of overlap between them as well, so you can find books that fit multiple challenges! Links to each thread are below:

  2. Okay, this looks super amazing! I will definitely be joining! I’m already making a mental list of books to read in my head, haha πŸ˜…

    I wasn’t even aware Women’s History Month was a thing, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. I love having monthly themes and just reading this has already inspired me with a bunch of post ideas. Ahh, I’m excited! πŸ˜„

  3. I can’t wait to join this readathon, I’m very excited and it is such a cool idea.
    I loved seeing all the books you are going to read and I hope you enjoy them all. Mexican Gothic sounds so interesting and I love the cover. I would also love to check out My Lady Jane.
    I will probably mention my TBR on my wrap up and on twitter.
    Also I’m sorry but I don’t know if any have a female villain in either, hopefully one will.
    Happy reading!! ❀
