Rachel @_sectumsemprah is the organiser of weekly Twitter chat #SundayYA and also the wonderful SundayYAthon. I've only taken part in one readathon before (it was a SundayYAthon) and I'm so happy there's another one!

Here is my (tentative) TBR:

SweetFreak - Sophie McKenzie

This one could count for recommended read or summer read as the cover is pink and the way it was recommended to me by Simon & Schuster based on my tastes. I can see why, so far I'm loving it! It's about a fourteen year old girl accused of bullying her best friend.

Welcome Home - Eric Smith

My diverse voices pick is a bit unusual. This is an anthology of stories about adoption and foster homes by authors with a close connection to this topic. 

They Both Die At The End - Adam Silvera

As my recommended read, it's probably not ideal that I can't remember who recommended this one first. I've seen it everywhere and I've just finished Adam Silvera's other bestseller, History Is All You Left Me, and can't wait to get back into his worlds.

Songs About Us - Chris Russell

Here's a summer pick. I read Songs About A Girl just the other week and quickly became obsessed with the characters. It's all about music, fame and romance. What more could you want for festival season?

I may add more to this as my reads change the squares I want to fill adjust but that's where I am for now! This blog post will update as the readathon continues...

Update: I finished my diverse read! Welcome Home was only a 3/5 for me. Less than half of the stories really gripped me, although the ones that did were great. The anthology was written very well but I just couldn't get into some of the styles and genres - I'm sure others would love it though!

So far, I've also finished The Raven Boys audiobook which could count towards a recommended read thanks to my Twitter friends. I also finished SweetFreak and I guess I can class that as a summer book (the cover at least makes it look very summery). I think it's safe to say I have at least completed this readathon but let's see what I can get read tomorrow! 

Another Update: Reading on the final day of the readathon just didn't happen. Oops! At least I completed my challenges and read some good books! Here's my final wrap up:

Recommended Read: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Free Choice: SweetFreak by Sophie McKenzie

Diverse Voices: Welcome Home edited by Eric Smith

How did you get on?

Love, Jess
