#MakeMeRead Readathon - Running Post

Here’s my original sign-up post for the challenge, which is hosted by Ely at Tea and Titles and Val at the Innocent Smiley. The readathon goes from July 9th to July 16th.
The way the vote turned out:
Several people let me know that they had never heard of most of the books on my list and/ or hadn't read any of them. The most popular book picks had the most name recognition, I think. All of them, except for Golden Son, were books I picked up from book events or were included in the Book Riot Book boxes last year.
