Buzzwordathon Kickoff: Attempting 7 Books in 7 Days!

I’m so excited for this week!! Today marks the kickoff of Buzzwordathon, a readathon hosted by booktubers Booksandlala and Chelseadolling reads. The goal of the readathon is to read as many books with the selected buzzword (or in this case, buzzwords) in the title as possible within 7 days.

This round’s buzzwords are Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How. I’ve picked one book with each word in the title, plus one extra. I do have physical copies of each book, but I think I’ll end up supplementing with the audiobook formats if I start falling behind throughout the week!

See my picks below and let me know if you’ll be participating in this readathon – if so, what books are YOU planning to read?

The Woman Who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone – a historical nonfiction about a woman who cracked enemy codes and played a meaningful part in WWII.

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler – a thriller/mystery (I believe) about what happened at a crazy party.

Where‘d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple – a contemporary about a mother who suddenly goes missing.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng – a character-driven contemporary highlighting family dynamics and small-town politics.

When to Rob a Bank by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner – an economic nonfiction with insights and essays from the Freakonomics blog.

Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler – an illustrated contemporary/romance about exactly what it says – why a couple broke up.

How Not to Be Wrong by Jordan Ellenberg – a nonfiction described as “the Freakonomics of math,” unveiling the secrets of math and the value in using them to your advantage.

Check back in on the 25th to see if I succeeded! Happy reading this week 🙂

      Thank you!! I’m excited for that one too, hoping it will give me a leg up on my also-mathematically-minded husband haha. Will definitely have a wrap up next Monday with all of my thoughts 🙂
