It’s my first time participating in the Reading Rush (previously known as BooktubeAThon) and I couldn’t be more excited. The Reading Rush is a week long readathon (from the 22nd to the 28th of July) for book lovers all around the world (you can find their website here !) It was started in 2013 by Ariel Bissett and Raeleen Lemay.
FYI : my username on the Reading Rush website is @noareadsbooks if you wanna add me !
I’ve been in a reading slump for the last few weeks and not in the greatest mood to read. However, I can feel my reading mood coming back and I’m so happy to fully get back into reading (especially because I always get the most reading done during July).
The readathon comes with 7 fun challenges to spice up your TBR but also help you choose what you’re going to read ! Here are the 7 challenges, along with the books I hope to read during the readathon !
1/ Read a book with purple on the cover
For this challenge, I’m picking Hello Girls by Brittany Cavallero and Emily Henry, which gives off strong Thelma and Louise vibes and I got an arc for it (the book is out on August 6th 2019 !)
2/ Read a book in the same spot the entire time
I’ll be reading Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi because it’s really short (it could also count for challenge 3 but I wanna read 7 books because I’m extra that way 🙂 )
3/ Read a book you meant to read last year
A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic #3) by VE Schwab. I’ve read the first two books last year and intended to finish the series before the end of 2018 but miserably failed. I shall conquer my never-ending TBR one way or the other.
4/ Read an author’s first book
5/ Read a book with a non-human main character
Opal (Lux #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I’ve been slowly making my way through this series and I can’t wait to start book 3. Daemon is fine and all but Katy… oof, I stan One Badass Independent Bitch and it’s her.
6/ Pick a book that has five or more words in the title
A Dress for the Wicked by Autumn Krause. I don’t know much about this book except that it’s about fashion but I’m excited.
7/ Read and watch a book to movie adaptation
I’ve been giving this one a lot of thoughts and I decided I’m gonna give myself multiple options because I have no clue what I’ll be in the mood for:
– Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
– Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
Or maybe something different entirely ? I have no idea !
That’s it for my TBR (let’s hope I stick to it!)
