The Whatever-You-Want-Athon is a month long readathon hosted by Maddie at Book Browsing and I thought it would be fun to participate! There is a going on in this readathon, so I will link you to Maddie’s video for all the information you need.
I joined team comrades of chaos and there are a few prompts that help you win points for you team. You get bonus points if the book fits into your teams genres and/or if the book is LGBTQ+.
So, as you probably know, I am terrible at TBRs, but there is so much going on in this readathon that I thought it would help me to stay organized if I put together a list of books that would help me to complete most of the prompts. I believe I committed to reading twelve books, so some of the books I choose will work for multiple prompts!
Cover Reminds You of a Pride Flag/Team Colour
Pumpkin is my most recent book purchase and it was my first read of June. I loved both Dumplin‘ and Puddin by Julie Murphy and Pumpkin ended up being my favourite in the series. It is perfect for the “reminds you of a pride flag” prompt because it has a rainbow not only on the cover but also on the spine! Our team colour is pink, so this couldn’t be more perfect! It also has LGBTQ+ rep.
Reread a Comfort Book
I am not a huge rereader, but Sleeping Giants has been calling out to me from my shelves for months now. I always say that it is my favourite fantasy series and I want to experience it again knowing how the story ends! I love that it is told through mixed media, and I believe that Sci-Fi counts as extra points for team comrades of chaos!
Five Star Prediction
I have absolutely loved Taylor Jenkin Reid’s last two novels, and I have a feeling Malibu Rising will be no different. The reviews have been amazing and it looks like the perfect summer read. I will be surprised if I don’t end up giving it five stars! It is also historical fiction and fits perfectly for bonus points for my team! Plus pink lettering!
I have been wanting to read Winter’s Orbit ever since it came out in February, and it is both Sci-Fi and LGBTQ+, so yay for bonus points! It is also blurbed by Martha Wells, who I adore. I am so excited to dive into Everina Maxwell’s debut! Also, more pink!
Self-Published/Hauled in the Last Year
Sweethand is independently published and I just received an ALC from Libro.fm, and it is the book I plan to read next! It looks like the perfect June read and I am in love with the cover.
I participate in a buddy read on Bookstagram every single month, and The Ones We’re Meant to Find is the June book, which I am thrilled about. It is a mix of Sci-Fi and mystery, and is the perfect fit for team comrades of chaos.
This is where all come in! Help me choose which of these books I should read!
I would also say all of these are out of my comfort zone, as they are not the kinds of fantasy I am typically drawn to, so they work for that prompt as well!
I am pretty happy with this list and that it gives me room to mood read! Let me know if you are participating in the readathon and what team you are on!

I haven’t read The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter and I DNFed Crown of Feathers so I vote The Bone Witch. Hope you enjoy the readathon 😁
Thanks so much for voting!! I have a feeling The Bone Witch or Alchemist’s Daughter will win. I also have a poll on Instagram!
This readathon sounds like so much fun, I joined the Epic and High team!
I hope you have a great reading month!
Awesome! I’m just getting into fantasy so I thought about joining one of the fantasy teams!
Have fun and good luck participating in the readathon! I voted for the Bone Witch on Insta, it was a good story and the cover is SO pretty! 🙂
The Bone Witch seems to be the winner!
Yay! I hope you enjoy it!
Malibu Rising was excellent, but… I still prefer her Daisy Jones (so far)!
Daisy Jones is just so unique!
This is so fun! Best of luck!
Rooting for The Bone Witch because that one has an amazing world building and the characters are very complex in my honest opinion.
The Bone Witch won!! I am about a third of the way through and loving it.
Winters Orbit is on my TBR for next month 😊
I am hoping to read it this weekend!
🤩 Adding some of these to my TBR.
Awesome! I’ve read a few of them now and so far so good!
I am also participating in whatever you want athon I’m in team epic and high. Good luck, you’ve got some great reads on your TBR xx
