Hello and welcome to my TBR post for The Reading Rush. This readathon has been one I have taken part in for the past few years and I am excited to do it again. This round is running from July 20th-July 26th. If you want more information you can visit their website here: https://thereadingrush.com/. In this post I am going to go over the challenges and the books I plan on reading to meet them. Now on to the books!
1 – Read a book with a cover that matches the color of your birth stone.
2 – Read a book that starts with the word “The”.
3 – Read a book that inspired by a movie you’ve already seen.
4 – Read the first book you touch.
5 – Read a book completely outside of your house. Challenge Update Post for Safety
6 – Read a book in a genre that you’ve always wanted to read more of.
7 – Read a book that takes place on a different continent than where you live.
1, 5, 7 – Celtic Mythology by Philip Freeman
2 & 4 – The Night Country by Melissa Albert
3 – Fire Starter by Stephen King
6 – Don’t Touch My Hair by Emma Dabiri
As you can see I am not going for 7 books in 7 days. I am doubling up and tripling up on some of these challenges so I can be strategic. I will however try to read these four books and then if I still have time somehow I plan on reading other books that will also meet the challenges I grouped together. I am really excited to read these books and to have two non-fiction reads for a readathon. I have very much been enjoying non-fiction lately, I even started off July by reading two non-fictions back to back. Anyway, here is my TBR!
Are you participating in the reading rush this year?
