Pop Culture Readathon Picks & July TBR

Hi guys,

I’m so excited to be taking part in the Pop Culture Readathon, and get the chance to read awesome books with equally awesome prompts. I feel like I’ll get the chance to read some genres and books I normally wouldn’t read as well as the chance to tick off plenty of books from my ever growing TBR, well that’s the hope anyway!

The Pop Culture Readathon was created by @LifeWhitMe over on Twitter with @readingparent as the co-host. This readathon is inspired by all things pop culture, with the first round being dedicated to 90’s movies. I’m a huge fan of 90’s movies, from the awesome horrors, to the rom coms and family flicks, there are so many awesome choices. I loved how creative the prompts are, and how they tie in with the movies so well, with four different boards to choose from, it was hard to decide which board to go with!

I ended up going with Family Affair – what can I say? I’m a sucker for Matilda, The Parent Trap and Jumanji and I thought the prompts on this board were really fun and would be easy to base a TBR around. As you can see below, some of the prompts are more specific and others are more open to interpretation and can be from any genre, trope etc which I loved.

So now you guys can see the board, I thought I’d go in to which books I’m planning to read for each prompt – the idea of it was sort of like a bingo, so you can get bingo by completing any four prompts in a row, any way you can ie: diagonal, straight across, downwards. At first I was going to try a bingo on each board, but then with more thought, I would rather get a whole board done.

Here’s all the books I picked! Let’s see how many I manage to cross off!

Here’s a written list of the books I’m planning to read for the Pop Culture Readathon & in July!

I hope you guys enjoyed getting a little insight into the Pop Culture Readathon and the books I’ll be reading in July!

Have you ever taken part in a readathon, if so, how was your experience? Did you manage to tick off all the books you wanted to read? Would love to chat in the comments!

Until next time,

    1. Thank you so much! I hope I manage to read most of these & it sounds soo sad from the synopsis alone I don’t think I’m ready, thanks for the heads up though! I’ll have tissues prepared 😭

  1. I haven’t heard of this readathon before but it looks to be so much fun (and now really makes me want to watch the movies..!) It must have taken you ages trying to even pick which book would be for which square, I think I’d fail at the first hurdle! Best of luck with it and happy reading!
