Reading Rush 2020 TBR

RR-full-deeplilac

The 2020 round of The Reading Rush will be starting next week from Monday 20th – Sunday 26th July. I participated for the first time last year and really enjoyed this readathon, I found it to be an incredibly fun and inclusive with a great community vibe. To watch the announcement video and hear all the challenges click HERE. I am going to try my best to complete the seven books, but I know there are a couple of books on my TBR that can actually fit multiple prompts so I may end up doubling up on a few… we’ll see how I go!

The Prompts and my TBR for the Reading Rush is:

šŸŽ²Becca’s Bookopoly ReadathonšŸŽ²

I made the last minute decision about three hours already into the readathon to participate, which is pretty much how I roll. For all the information about the Readathon see Becca’s announcement video HERE. I have been watching her Bookopoly TBR videos pretty much since she started them so I was only too happy to participate in the first round! I knew I wouldn’t be able to complete all 8 of the prompts but I am happy I did end up finishing four books which was pretty much the overall goal.

The first prompt I chose was the Chance card pick from the 2020 board
