Soooo I have made the last minute decision to participate in the Stay Home Reading Rush which started today and finishes on Sunday 19th April. I participated in the Reading Rush last year and had a lot of fun, so I figured why not encourage people to stay home, socially isolate yourself and read all weekend!!!
Read a book with a house on the cover!
The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell
Read a book in the same room the whole time!
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Read a book set somewhere you wish you could go!
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Read a book that will make you smile!
You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle
For April I decided to take part in the O.W.L.S Magical Readathon hosted by Book Roast on Youtube, for any information regarding the readathon see her announcement video HERE. I’m not 100% sure what my career is going to be so I am going to try and complete all of the prompts for this round and then when it comes to the N.E.W.T.S I will announce which career path I choose in that TBR!
The prompts & my tentative TBR for the OWLS include:
Heart rune: heart on the cover or in the title
Magical Qualities of number 2: balance/opposites – read something outside your favourite genre
Night Classes: read majority of this book when it’s dark outside
Hippogriffs: creature with a beak on the cover
Lumos Maxima: white on the cover
Grindylows: book set at the sea/coast
Third eye: assign numbers to your TBR and use a random number generator to pick your read
Mimbulus mimbletonia: title starts with an M
Witch hunts: book featuring witches/wizards
Book from a perspective of a muggle (contemporary)
Shrinking solution: book under 150 pages
Animagus lecture: book/series that includes shapeshifting
This weeks’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is what books I am hoping to read during the Autumn months … Summer is finally over and I can’t wait for the colder months to get here! I think all the books I picked have a Autumnal/Wintery vibe so it seemed fitting. Happy Reading!
My Autumn TBR is:
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas
The Hand on the Wall by Maureen Johnson
Heart of Flames by Nicki Pau Preto
The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye
Blood Heir by Amelie Wen Zhao
A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos
Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
I have made the last minute decision to participate in the Backlist Readathon hosted by gabbyreads which started today and runs through to this Sunday 15th March! I have been slowly trying to get through all the physical books on my TBR over the last couple of months and I figured this readathon coincides perfectly with my goals. Now I have two books on my TBR that fit all of the prompts, but I am going to try my best to finish couple more of my backlist titles this week as well!
Backlist Readathon TBR:
The first book I would like to read is The Black Prism by Brent Weeks! This fits the prompts for read a backlist you added as a recommendation from someone else & read a book on your backlist that intimidates you the most!
The second book I would like to read this week is Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan! This books fits the prompts for read your shortest backlist title, read a backlist title you are most excited for, read a diverse backlist title (ex: lgbt rep, fat rep, poc, authors or characters with disabilities) & read a backlist with blue on the cover
Other books that fit the prompts that I could potentially complete are:
