Short-A-Thon TBR

It’s Short-a-Thon time or as I like to call it, Cheat-a-thon. The challenge where we strategically choose books in order to meet our Goodreads goal or other challenges we set for ourselves at the beginning of 2018. This read-a-thon runs from December 21st through December 31st and is hosted by Kathy at Books and Munchies and Destiny at Howling Libraries. Use #shortathon18 for any social media updates.

Here is the list of ebooks, physical books, and audiobooks that I am hoping to get to December 21st through the end of the year.


A Holiday By Gaslight: A Victorian Christmas Novella

A Holiday by Gaslight by Mimi Mathews
147 pages
I am excited for this one. If I manage to save this one for the Short-A-Thon, I will be impressed.

The New World (Chaos Walking, #0.5)

The New World (Chaos Walking 0.5) by Patrick Ness
25 pages
I have already finished the rest of this series and I’m hoping I remember enough to enjoy this one.

The Vampire With the Dragon Tattoo

The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo by J. R. Rain

Physical books:

Strange Adventures of the Great Lakes

Strange Adventures of the Great Lakes by Dwight Boyer
248 pages
This is a souvenir book. I try to buy a book from the area and about the area I visit when I go on trips. This was my pick for our most recent trip to Duluth. I sometimes struggle with these types of books, so I may ditch it for Shortathon.

An Abundance of Katherines

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
228 pages
One of the few John Greens still left on my TBR.

Lost & Found (Rocky Pelligrino, #1)

Lost and Found by Jacqueline Sheehan
278 pages
I saw this book at Goodwill and it was so cute I had to pick it up.

Someone Like You

Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen

I haven’t read any Sarah Dessen in a while, so I am looking forward to picking this one up.

What books are you reading for Short-A-Thon?


  1. Haha, Cheat-a-thon would definitely have been a fitting name as well! πŸ˜›

    Awesome that you’re joining! πŸ˜€ I’ve been meaning to get a copy of An Abundance of Katherines, but I’m still a bit doubtful since I liked Turtles all the way Down, but pretty much hated Looking for Alaska? Hm.


  2. We could always do cheat-a-thoj some other time lol

    Yeah. I loved The Fault in Our Stars and Will Grayson, but Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns almost felt like the same book to me. I haven’t read Turtles All the Way Down yet.


  3. Hahaha “Cheat-a-thon”! That is too funny. Someone actually told me they didn’t “feel right” about participating in Short-a-thon because of that, which was funny and odd to me because I hadn’t thought about it like that. I always say, if it’s on Goodreads, it counts, so I forget sometimes that not everyone feels the same way! Either way, great list. πŸ˜€ A Holiday By Gaslight was so cute, I hope you enjoy it!

    • If you think about it, these books would still count to your Goodreads goal no matter when you read them during the year. The ones I picked were ones I had already been planning on reading and already owned except for the audiobooks.
