Happy Monday, friends! I cannot believe that it is practically August, where has the summer gone.
I decided very last minute that I would participate in this month’s Read-a-thin. Read-a-thin is a read-a-thon based around reading books on your TBR. You can find more about it on their Twitter page here! My reading has been a bit lacking lately. I read, like, four books in one week and haven’t finished a book since then. So I thought having some sort of structure would help me for August (we can hope).
The challenges and my TBR
Read a thin book: I just bought The Most Dangerous Place on Earth by Lindsey Lee Johnson, which I think is about 250 pages, so I’m going to use it for this challenge!
Read a book in a series: for this, I’m going to read Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor, which is the sequel to Strange the Dreamer.
Read a book that’s been on your shelves for two years: Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, which is also on my 2019 TBR!
Read a book with a bright-coloured cover: for this one, I’m going to be reading The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See, which my best friend bought for me a few weeks ago and I need to read ASAP as possible.
Read a book recommended by a friend: Rachel and Hannah on Twitter (go follow me! (and them!)) told me to read Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney, so that’s what I’m going with!
Personal challenge I made for myself: finish book two of 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. You can do it!
So that’s my TBR for this month! Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? Are you participating in Read-a-thin? Let me know!
