I am so excited to have finally finalised my list for Believathon!!
Believe in the Impossible Readathon is a Middle Grade Reading challenge created by BookTuber Gavin Hetherington bringing together a group read and selection of a minimum 4 books from a list of 10 prompts and ALL CELEBRATING MIDDLE GRADE!!
I decided to go for the full eleven and I also decided that I would read back on my TBR as tempting as it is to fill this up with brand new loveliness I wanted to take this opportunity to read those gems I have so far missed the chances to read. Each of my selected books are at minimum a year old but the majority are within the last 5 years.
You can download a handbook from the official twitter account and there are tie in candles and mugs available for those inclined!
From November 1st as you read a book you can submit your participation here:
