Read-a-thin is back! This is a readathon that takes place four times a year, in February, May, August and November. It started in 2017 and is a month-long. It is hosted by Amanda at A Court of Books and Love and Donna at Mom’s Book Collection.
This round they are doing a spin the wheel, the wheel has 15 prompts, and you turn it to see which challenge you will do next. The wheel is here. I will go over each prompt and show you what I’m planning to read for each.
- Morning Reading
Read when you awake? No electronic’s to bug you.
This one will be harder to do because I tend to listen to a book while checking emails and stuff.
- Thin Book
Find a book that is under 250 or under
I’m going with, It Happened on Christmas Eve by Kirsty Greenwood, it’s a holiday novella and one of the shortest books on my TBR.
Read a Romance book or has Romance in it.
This one is easy because my current TBR is full of romance for some reason. Picking Mind Reader by Kirsty McManus.
- Read 5 Books
Read at least 5 books.
I read about 31 books in January, and I was in a slump to read and write. It’s not the first time that I read/listen to 5 books in a day, but that depends on my mood.
- Flowers on the Cover
Read a book that has a flower or flowers on the cover.
Luckily I have He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not (The Flower Shop Sisters #2) by Iris Morland on my list with red flowers on the cover.
- Own Voices
Read a book that diverse characters that have been written by authors from that same diverse group.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas, The main character is trans, and I believe Alden is trans himself. I’m also hoping to buddy-read it with Ashmita from The Fictional Journal.
