Read-EH-Thon TBR

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

It feels like I just posted a TBR recently, doesn’t it? 😉

The Read-EH-Thon is a Canadian inspired readathon hosted by an abundance of Canadian book influencers! Personally, I discovered this readathon last year, as it is hosted by BooksandLala, one of my all-time favourite BookTubers. The Read-EH-Thon challenges you to read as many books, written by Canadian authors, as you can. There is also a bingo card that features 16 challenges, with the goal of you completing 4, meaning you would have a “BINGO”! However, I am on a book buying ban for the month of August (just wait until you see my next book haul…), so I have decided to compile my TBR by choosing books written by Canadian authors, regardless of if they complete a challenge or not. Nonetheless, the bingo card is below!


Some of the books I have chosen happen to fit some of the prompts/challenges, but some of them do not.


The first book I plan on reading for the Read-EH-Thon is The End Of Her by Shari Lapena. I pre-ordered this book a few weeks before it came out, and it just released on July 23! I have read Lapena’s previous novel The Couple Next Door, and while I did not love the ending, I loved her writing immensely and decided to give her newest novel a chance. This one is a domestic thriller, which are my absolute favourite type of thrillers to read, so I hope I love this one! This book completes the challenge of having nature on the cover.


The next book I hope to read for the readathon is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. I initially had this one on my Reading Rush TBR, but ultimately decided to wait for this readathon to read it, as Mandel is a proud Canadian! I have heard nothing but phenomenal things about this novel, and I hope it lives up to all of the hype! This book completes the challenge of reading a book that was nominated for a Canadian book award.


I then hope to read The Swap by Robyn Harding. I had no idea that Harding was a Canadian author, but I was thrilled to find that out after I purchased this novel! As I shared above, I love domestic thrillers, and I believe this book revolves around two couples who swap partners. I have heard that this book is incredibly entertaining and fact paced, which will make it a great pick to read for this readathon!


Next, I hope to read Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali. I read Ali’s 2019 publication, Love From A To Z, which I loved, so I hope to enjoy this one just as much! This book completes the challenge of reading an Immigrant/Refugee story.


The second last book I hope to read for the readathon is What My Sister Knew by Nina Laurin. Nina Laurin is one of my favourite thriller authors, and this is her 2018 release. I picked it up last year after reading The Starter Wife, but never got around to it. I hope enjoy this one as much as I have enjoyed her last two novels!


The last book I hope to read for the Read-EH-Thon is The Very, Very Far North by Dan Bar-El. I received an ARC of this book from Simon and Schuster Canada quite a while ago, but never got around to it. I am normally not someone who requests children’s/early reader/middle grade novels, but I believe this one is supposed to be an adaption of Winnie The Poo, which sounds great to me! This book completes the challenge of reading a Canadian children’s book.


Those are all of the books I hope to read for the Read-EH-Thon! I don’t think I will be able to get to all six of these books, but if I get to four, I will be really happy with my reading for the week! Are you participating in this Canadian readathon?!

Good Night Book Owls!
