One of my goals this year is to participate in more readathons, something I’ve been trying to do, but haven’t been so hot at. Since I’ve been slacking, I’m excited to participate in Reading Rush next week! Reading Rush, formally known as Booktubeathon, is a week long readathon with Instagram, video, and reading challenges to help you read and connect with other readers during the week. The past few years I’d hear about this readathon too late to participate, so I’m excited to finally have time to participate! If you’re planning on participating, add me as a friend so we can see each other’s progress and encourage each other!
This round of Reading Rush takes place July 22 – July 28, from midnight in your time zone on July 22, and ends at 11:59 on July 28. There are seven challenges you can participate in during the readathon:
- Read a book with purple on the cover
- Read a book in the same spot
- Read a book you meant to read last year
- Read an author’s first book
- Read a book with a nonhuman main character
- Read a book with 5+ words in the title
- Read a book to movie adaptation (plus watch adaptation)
Nine Perfect Strangers – I’ve had this Liane Moriarty book on my TBR since it came out, and I still haven’t read it! I’m planning on reading this book for the purple on the cover challenge.
Six of Crows – I think the challenge that this covers is pretty self-explanatory. I meant to read this book in 2018…but still haven’t. I’m super excited to finally read this because I’ve heard nothing but good things about it!
Queenie – Another book I’m super excited to pick up for the readathon! This fits the challenge read an author’s first book. I’ve heard so many good things about this, so I’m v excited to pick it up!
Handle with Care – I love Helena Hunting and I love this series, and I know I can get this done in a few hours. This book will fit the challenge of reading a book in the same place. I think I can get it done in one setting, and I’m planning on reading it out by the pool or outside a coffee shop.
Maybe You Should Talk to Someone – I’m halfway through this book, so I’m planning on finishing this book (finally) during the readathon. I’m loving this book, so I’m not sure why I put it down, but I know once I start it I’ll finish it. This book fits the challenge of a book with 5+ words in the title.
The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali – Another book that’s going to fit the challenge of 5+ words in the title. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book, and I really want to get to it during the readathon (especially since this is library book and it’ll be due soon).
Pride and Prejudice and Passports – This one is kinda cheating, but I’m using it for the book to movie adaptation. I’ve had this ARC for…a while and haven’t read it yet. I’ve read so many great Pride and Prejudice retellings this year, so I’m hoping this one is just as great.
