Last month, I participated in the Peruse Readathon, where I was able to get two books — one of them on my TBR for a while — off of my TBR list. After finishing it, I was so excited to do another one, seeing as I completed two books.
A few weeks ago, YouTubers Ariel Bissett and Raeleen Lemay announced their Stay At Home Reading Rush. Usually, the duo hosts a week-long reading rush in the summer. The event, according to the website encourages participants to stay home and have bookish fun as a community.
Now, the event has some challenges. These challenges are:
I am going to be honest here — I am not going to follow most of them, just because I have a ton of books on my TBR and I want to try to make a dent during this time.
And just like the last time I participated in a Readathon, I know that I am not going to be reading the entire time. Other than work Thursday and Friday, this weekend is my boyfriend’s mom and my boyfriend’s birthday, so I am sure we are doing something to celebrate. Furthermore, I also get a lot of headaches when I do read nonstop, so I’d like to give my eyes a bit of break.
I also plan during this readathon to use the power of audiobooks borrowed from Libby to use when I do other things I enjoy, such as crocheting, playing Animal Crossing, walking Lucy, and other adulting things.
That said, here are the books I hope to complete during this challenge. If they do complete the challenge, I will be sure to mark it below.
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
- Yes, No Maybe So by Becky Albertali and Aisha Saeed– Read a Book that Will Make You Smile
- The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
- Falling by Jane Green (if I have time)
I have no idea whether or not I’ll be able to get through all of these in the rush. However, I like that I have options to choose from, which is good.
