I’m so excited to bring you this post because finally, after a too-long consideration, I decided to jump into the bandwagon and joining this readathon! If you know me, I suck at readathon. There I admit it. I’m always super pumped when I’m planning my TBR and all, but that energy seems to vanish when it comes to actually do the readathon. However, I’d like to try again this time because I’m just so impressed with the preparation and setup of this event! If you’re interested to find out more details about this readathon, all of the information can be found below.
I’m trying to be hopeful yet realistic for this readathon because I’m completely aware that I’m such a mood reader. These four books are the ones that I picked to complete the given challenges:
purple on the cover & non-human main character
I decided to go with Wicked Fox by Kat Cho for these challenges. I received the ARC a while ago and I’ve been planning to finish it within this month. I’ll also read it as a part of the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019.
read in the same spot the entire time
Obviously, I’ll go with a shorter book for this particular challenge. I decided to pick up Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker because I also received the ARC a while ago and I’m just so excited when I saw all of the lovely, warm, witchy vibes from this graphic novel!
author’s first book & five or more words in the title
Me, reading a book, just a week after I bought it? Wild concept. But here we are! I picked up Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi last week for my birthday and it’s really a coincidence that it’s a perfect match for these two challenges!
meant to read last year & read a book and watch the adaptation
Honestly, I’ve been putting off this book for too long now considering the number of times I’ve been watching the movies! The Devil Wears Prada was absolutely one of my all-time favorite movies and I think these two challenges are perfect to push me to finally read the book!
And there you have it! Honestly, I think I’ll do a decent job with this readathon (eh, hopefully?). I haven’t really decided for the other three titles that I’ll pick up to complete the “7 books” bonus challenge, so we’ll see about that later. Also, if you’re joining this readathon, feel free to add me on The Reading Rush site so we can connect and discuss there!
