I am participating in the Reading Rush for the first time!
I’m sure most of you know what the Reading Rush is. For those who don’t, the Reading Rush (formerly known as the Booktubeathon) is a weeklong readathon created by Ariel Bissett and Raeleen Lemay. The purpose is to read books and participate in the reading/video challenges. This year, you can earn badges, and you even get a badge for signing up. This year it goes from the 22nd – 28th.
The challenges this year are:
Read a book with purple on the cover & non-human character: My pick is Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amy Kaufman. I’m choosing to double up on this challenge, and I believe there is an alien character as part of the crew.
Read a book in the same spot: Satoko and Nada Vol. 2 by Yupechika. I’m planning on reading this in my beanbag chair.
Read an author’s first book: for this challenge, I am choosing Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston.
Read a book that has five words or more in the title & read a book you meant to read last year: I’m doubling up once again. My book of choice is A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.
Read and watch a book to movie adaptation: I’m choosing Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. I have never read this children’s classic, but have seen the movie. A bonus is that it’s a short read.
Bonus: read 7 books
I will be reading Wherever She Goes by Kelley Armstrong. Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors and I know I will be sucked into to the story.
