After the 24in48 Readathon this weekend (a success with 24+ hours read), I swore I was going to take a break, but then I saw The Reading Rush readathon which runs 7/22-28. I resisted, I said I wasn’t going to do it and then I went to my bookshelf and started pulling books. As it turns out, I found books on my shelves and on my reading lists to fit all of the prompts, so… I gave in and signed up! (I swear, the day will come when I pass on a readathon… maybe!) I’m not going to aim to actually finish ALL of these, but here’s my TBR:
Read a book with purple on the cover
I just picked AURORA RISING by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff up very recently, so I’m excited to have a slot to throw this on my list!
Read a book in the same spot the entire time
I feel like I’m cheating a little bit on this one since it’s so short, but my library hold on WIT by Margaret Edson came in which is my pick for a play on the Reading Women Reading Challenge and I need to make sure I get it read this month!
Read a book you meant to read last year
I have a lot of contenders for this one on my shelves! I went with HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET by Jamie Ford. I had planned to include this in one of my reading challenges in 2018 and made a last minute switch.
Read an author’s first book
SLEEPING GIANTS by Sylvain Neuvel has been recommended to me by a few bookstagrammers and it happens to be the author’s debut!
Read a book with a non-human main character
I struggled the most with this one. My book isn’t pictured because I only have it on Kindle, but I had flagged DOG ON IT by Spencer Quinn for the Book Riot Reading Harder challenge animal or inanimate object POV. A dog detective POV… sounds bizarre enough to be potential fun!
Read a book that has five or more words in the title
Going with ONE OF US IS LYING by Karen M. McManus for this one since I didn’t get to it for this weekend’s readathon. It is another one that has been on my TBR a long time!
Read and watch a book to movie adaptation
THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER by Stephen Chbosky is again a book that has been on my TBR for ages and I have not yet seen the adaptation, so it seems this week may be the week!
