The Emojiathon seems to be the one readathon that I always get excited for and then forget about until the first day of it. That is exactly what has happened again this time around. So here I am on the first day of the readathon, throwing together my TBR.
You have probably noticed that since moving I have been in a bit of an on and off reading slump, which I am putting down to just not having found a reading routine quite yet while now living with my partner. So I am not going to go crazy with the TBR this round, and going to stick with just six books for now. I can always add more if I get through them.
Not going to lie, I am kind of trying to fit books to the challenges as I still don’t have all my books unpacked. But I’m hopeful.
The first book on this TBR is my current read; The Girl in Red by Christina Henry. This is her latest release which is a take on Little Red Riding Hood. For the readathon this will cover challenges, 5 Star Prediction, Takes Place Outside, book started but not finished, Animal on the cover, Anticipated book, and Gifted book.
Though to be fair most of these books will work for gifted book as many are books sent to me from publishers.
Next I have The Record Keeper by Agnes Gomillion, a book that I am reviewing on the 17th of June as part of the blog tour. This has some overlaps for the challenges as it too has an animal on the cover. Other challenges covered are, set somewhere you don’t live, and written by an unknown author,
A book I have started but not finished is Crazy Rich Asians, I am taking the opportunity to make myself finish it, as this is one of the challenges. This will also complete the challenge to read an ebook, book that features travel, and a book you’ve been seeing everywhere.
As with all readathons, I have a graphic novel thrown in here, and that is Monstress by Marjorie Liu. I always include a graphic novel for readathons just to break it up a bit, but this one will also cover the challenges to read a fantasy book, and an expensive book (but aren’t all graphic novels).
There was a challenge on this list that I just felt was a perfect opportunity for me to get brutal with a book in particular. I have had Obsidio for so long, that it is time that I either read it this month or it is time for it to go bye-bye. This will also cover a few other challenges for me; a book you’re annoyed at yourself for not reading yet, Sci-fi book, book you don’t know why you haven’t read yet, and a book you’ve said you would read but haven’t yet- if you don’t believe me, check my previous TBRs.
Then finally, I have The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston on this list. With all the cons going on at the moment, as well as missing the amazing opportunity to meet this lovely author, I just feel like its the perfect time for me to read this book. This wont cover as many new challenges, but it does cover to read a comtempory.
The only other challenge I am confident that I will complete is to read a book in 24hours. I haven’t linked this to a specific book but I feel that I will complete this with either Monstress or possibly Obsidio.
I think I will try to do weekly over views of what I manage to achieve to read for the readathon each week. Lets hope that I break free of this recurrent reading slump.
