#StartOnYourShelfathon

 

What is #StartOnYourShelfathon?

#StartOnYourShelfathon is a 2020 star-themed readathon hosted and run by CW from The Quiet Pond. The aim of #StartOnYourShelfathon is to read as many unread books on your bookshelf as you can between December 13th 2019 and December 31st 2020.

#StartOnYourShelfathon isn’t an ordinary readathon too! The mascot of #StartOnYourShelfathon is Castor the Star Collector who is also a sloth friend of The Quiet Pond, who has lost all the stars he has collected over the years and needs your help to find them again.

For every book that you read as part of #StartOnYourShelfathon, you collect a star that you can add the star to your ‘star map’. Read books, collect stars, give yourself an amateur star-collector name, and create constellations! You can read Castor’s story and find information about and resources for the readathon here.

My #StartOnYourShelfathon Goals

  1. So on my one bookshelf in the living alone, I have over 80 unread books. I have decided that this may take more than a year…or two. Anyway, I’ve decided to try and read 5 books a month from my unread books for this #startonyourshelfathon I’m also only doing physical books for this readathon!
  2. Survive
  3. Oh Here’s my star map for Dec-Jan

My #StartOnYourShelfathon TBR

I’m going to go ahead and post my 5 for this month/January


Angel Sanctuary, Vol. 4

Angel Sanctuary Vol. 4 by Kaori Yuki

So, time for me to go into timeout because I’ve had this book and most of the series since I was about 15, now that I’ve had all 20 for about 5 years now, it seems I should go ahead and get this manga series read! In this series, our main guy is also the host of a female angel, in love with his sister, he knows what he feels is wrong but with his and the angel’s love for his sister, there’s no stopping it. But there’s more at stake, others know who is hiding within him.

Not Your Sidekick (Sidekick Squad, #1)

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee

I love the premise of this book! Our protag finds the perfect internship but in a world full of heroes and villains and superpowers [and sidekicks] how is she supposed to accept one with a supervillain? The AMAZING Michelle got me this, and I’ve been treasuring it on my shelf, but time to crack it open!


The Penelopiad

The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

Well, I’m a huge Atwood fan, or Handmaid’s Tale fan really and Canongate sent me this, ages ago, it’s time to read it!


Stepsister

Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly

I love retellings and I was gifted this request off NetGalley, again, ages ago, so it was time to get it read!


Anya and the Dragon (Anya, #1)

Anya and the Dragon by Sofiya Pasternack

Another NetGalley ARC that has waited too long!


To Best the Boys

To Best the Boys by Mary Weber

After having some bookblogger friends write some awesome reviews for it, and having had this eARC since like April, I think it was time I just got along to reading it.


Things We Didn't Talk About When I Was a Girl

Things We Didn’t Talk About When I Was A Girl by Jeannie Vanasco

I had requested an ARC of this, it came out in October but the book continued to sit on my shelf. It’s a really important memoir/nonfic and I’m glad I can read it finally.


This Cruel Design (This Mortal Coil, #2)

This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

This was a rec from Kal, and I LOVED The first one as she rec’d that one as well, so, I need to read the rest of this trilogy!


February/March TBR and Starmap

Rebel (Legend, #4)

Rebel [Legend #4] by Marie Lu **STILL NEED TO READ**

I preordered this, way back when, and it didn’t come in till like late last month, so, the reason I hadn’t gotten to this one is that I expected it like two months ago. So! I better knock it out while I still have the trilogy fresh in my mind!


One Word Kill (Impossible Times, #1)

One World Kill by Mark Lawrence **STILL NEED TO READ**

So I got this off Amazon First Reads and I think it’ll be a perfect read when I have such a busy time with really highly anticipated ARCs for January and even February. Not to mention the third book comes out this month, so, let’s get started on it, woo.


Crier's War (Crier's War, #1)

Crier’s War by Nina Varela

I had preordered this after seeing the beautiful swag but I always intended to read it and now I am with Isabelle from NineTaleVixen!


The Island Child

The Island Child by Molly Aitken

This ARC has been on my shelf for far too long, and I’m happy to say I’m on the blog tour for this, so, no more procrastinating!


The Wolf of Oren-Yaro

The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S. Villoso

Another ARC that has been on my shelf for far too long, and I’m happy to say I’m on the blog tour for this, so, no more procrastinating!


Angel Sanctuary, Vol. 6

Angel Sanctuary Vol. 6 by Kaori Yuki

So, time for me to go into timeout because I’ve had this book and most of the series since I was about 15, now that I’ve had all 20 for about 5 years now, it seems I should go ahead and get this manga series read! In this series, our main guy is also the host of a female angel, in love with his sister, he knows what he feels is wrong but with his and the angel’s love for his sister, there’s no stopping it. But there’s more at stake, others know who is hiding within him.

  1. Ah- Goodluck for this!
    As I plan to read what’s on my shelves anyway, that shall be a perfect one for me 🤔 And although I don’t quite understand it- I love the relation to stars too!

    Ohh Rebel’s cover is so pretty!

  2. “survive” as a #SOYS goal is such a huge mood, my owned-TBR also contains years’ worth of reading material 😅

    Not Your Sidekick (and the rest of the series) are so much fun, and I really love the diverse cast; I hope you enjoy it, as well as the other books on your list. best of luck, Haley!
