Hello! Happy Good Friday!
I am taking part in the Easter Readathon hosted by Kate @ Reading Through Infinity. Last year I took part in the readathon and had a semi-successful weekend, so I decided to take part again this year. I am probably biting off way more than I can chew, as I announced yesterday that I am taking part in Camp NaNo April, as well as finishing my current writing project…but oh well!
The Easter Readathon is taking place from Friday 2nd April until Monday 5th April and Kate has supplied four reading prompts. I’ve decided to choose four books and hopefully this year, I can actually read the books I set.
Read a book that gives you spring vibes
For this prompt I have chosen Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender. I have had this on my TBR for nearly a year now, and I have been saving it for spring/summertime. I have no reason to select this for the spring vibes prompt other than the flowers on the cover remind me of spring. Plus it is bright and colourful and that sounds great right now.
Read a book about new beginnings
For this prompt I am choosing The Switch by Beth O’Leary. From what I am aware of the novel, the book is about a grandmother and granddaughter who swap homes and location for two months, to experience something new. It sounds like the perfect new beginnings book to select for this prompt.
Read a book that’s under 250 pages
Like last year, I am selected a Seanan McGuire book! This time it is In An Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire, which is book four in the Wayward Children series. Last year I put book 2 on my TBR, but didn’t read it during the weekend, though I did read it eventually last year. Now, I am moving onto book four and hopefully I will be able to get to it!
Read a book with a pastel cover
This is one that appeared last year on my Easter Readathon TBR, however I never finished it. I got about 200 pages in, but I got distracted and ended up putting the book down and I haven’t gotten round to picking it back up. That book is Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. I have been wanting to continue reading it since I last put it down, so I am so excited to pick it back up! I will be starting it again though because I cannot remember anything about the novel.
Last year I managed four out of the five prompts with three books. This year I am going to try and read one book per prompt and hopefully I will do better at keeping to my TBR. If you’re interested in how I favoured last year, you can find my TBR: here and my wrap up: here.
