The Reading Rush is a week long readathon which was formerly Booktubeathon – I’m glad they made it more inclusive for us bloggers and bookstagrammers! You can find out more here.
I have never once completed a readathon successfully. So sitting here and writing this feels kind of silly, nonetheless, I’m excited to see how I do! I’m working full time from home, so I have very little free time but that doesn’t mean I can’t give it a good go 🙂
1/ Read a book with a cover that matches the colour of your birth stone.
I was born in July, so my birthday is a ruby! In a small attempt to lighten my Netgalley TBR, I’ve chosen Sender: A Play by Ike Holter. Nice and short for a readathon!
2/ Read a book that starts with the word “The”.
Another short one at 45 pages, I’ll be reading The Women Who Made Me A Feminist by Matt Killeen.
3/ Read a book that inspired a movie you’ve already seen.
This was so hard! But so I can listen to an audiobook, I decided I would read The Wizard Of Oz, because the film is my all time fav but I’ve never read the book!
4/ Read the first book you touch.
I have my TBR cart at the side of me. It has roughly 80 books on it, so random number generator time! And the book I’ll be reading for this is.,,
5/ Read a book completely outside of your house.
A tough one given the whole pandemic thing, but I figured I’d go for an audibook that I can listen to on my daily walks. I’m not very far into this, so it still counts, so I’m going with Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills.
6/ Read a book in a genre that you’ve always wanted to read more of.
I’m CR the first Percy Jackson book, hopefully I finish it before the readathon starts! And I’ve been loving Middle Grade Fantasy recently, so I’d love to read book 2.
7/ Read a book that takes place on a different continent than where you live.
If I have time (lol), book three!
As you can see, there’s a lot of crossover with the challenges, so I should tick off all seven if I don’t read 7 books!
Wish me luck!
Happy reading, lovelies xo
