The Racing To Read Book Tag #ReadingRush

So here we are at the end of the reading rush! Wrap up incoming but I managed to read 5.3 (I DNFed 30% in) books in seven days which is great for me! Today I am doing the Racing To Read Book Tag, created by Ariel and Raeleen of The Reading Rush.

You can find their original video here.

Warm Up: A book that stretches your mind?

A book I read recently that really captures the essence of this question is Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race by Rennie Eddo-Lodge. It really opened my eyes to how I need to be more anti-racist and the racism that Black people and other People Of Colour face. Would recommend.

Start Line: What’s a book that you started but never finished?

During The Reading Rush I started and put down The Gifted The Talented And Me by William Sutcliffe because it had Queerbaiting and just generally bad writing. Would NOT recommend.

Sprint: A book you read really quickly?

Again, for the readathon I reread The Story Of Tracy Beaker by Jacqueline Wilson in one sitting.

The Story of Tracy Beaker (Tracy Beaker, #1)

Marathon: What’s your favorite long book?

I dont have one for this bevause it would be HP5 by she who must not be named.

Hurdles: What’s a book that had ups and downs?

I’d go with S.T.A.G.s and D.O.Gs by M.A Bennett. I still, to this day, have not decided if I love or hate that series.

S.T.A.G.S

Finish Line: A book you were proud to finish?

I don’t have one for this!

Gold Medal: Best book you’ve read during a readathon?

I don’t have a record of all the books I’ve ever read during a readathon but I read the first Percy Jackson this week and fell in love.

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)

Participation Ribbon: An underrated book you wish got more attention?

I recently read Run, Rebel and Manjeet Mann and I LOVED it but NO ONE is talking about it!

Run, Rebel

 

As I was writing this post, some discourse surfaced on Twitter regarding the treatment of the group book (which I haven’t read but have since added to my tbr) from Black and Creators Of Colour. Please do check this out after reading my post!

Happy reading, lovelies xo
