Since I have been absent for way too long, I thought the announcement of a read-a-thon I will be participating in, would be fun! 😀
This time around the read-a-thon starts today, on Monday and ends on Sunday (20th – 26th). The announcement video as well as the challenges be found here. As always I am very excited to participate in a read-a-thon, especially after kind of a slumpy reading phase I did have the last couple of months.
1. TBR over a year – Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
I have bought all of the available books by Morgan Matson last year or the year before that and I wanted to read all of them during the summer time. Of course that never happened. This year I’m all for it, though, and I’m quite excited to read more of her work!
2. Sequel – The Princess Diaries: Give Me Five by Meg Cabot
I have been loving this series so far and I’ve only read book four at the beginning of the year. Now it’s really time to continue to laugh and read!
3. First book in a series – The Wrath & the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh
I have bought this book almost immediately as it was released. I was so intrigued by the premise; I loved the 1001 Nights stories as a child and I couldn’t pass up this retelling. Now that the second and last book in the series is out, I am ready to dive into this world!
4. Out of comfort zone – Bright Minds, Empty Souls by Jennae Cecelia
I love poetry, unfortunately I don’t read enough of it. Like, at all. It does seem a bit intimidating, but I’m all for it and I hope to enjoy it!
5. Most recent book haul – Summer Days & Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins
I have already loved this collection of twelve Christmas love stories. Now there is a new collection out for the summer and I just had to have it. I’d like to get into the summery mood and this book seems like the perfect fit!
I am off work today and tomorrow as I got my remaining wisdom teeth removed just an hour ago, so we’ll see how much I’ll manage to read in the next few days. Also, I have to work from Wednesday to Friday. I hope to read ALL OF THE BOOKS until Sunday.
As always, I will be posting my wrap-up by the end of the read-a-thon.
Until next time: happy reading! 🙂
