My Reading Rush TBR (failure is imminent)

Hi, hey, hello, welcome to my blog and Happy Reading Rush Week!!!

I am late, very late, with this TBR, but it took me a while to decide if I was going to take part in the readathon and if I was going to share my TBR beforehand. But I figured why not. I’ve wanted to participate in a readathon for a while now, even including it on a recent post about nerd experiences, and I have literally nothing going on right now so it’s the perfect time.

The Reading Rush, previously known as Booktube-a-ton, runs from the 22nd (today) till the 28th of July. They also created a website this year to add each other, get badges and track your process. My profile is here if anyone wants to see how badly I’m probably failing ๐Ÿ™‚

Challenges

  1. Read a book with purple on the cover
  2. Read a book in the same spot the entire time
  3. Read a book you meant to read last year
  4. Read an authorโ€™s first book
  5. Read a book with a non-human main character
  6. Pick a book that has five or more words in the title
  7. Read and watch a book to movie adaptation

I’m going to talk about what books I’m hoping to read this week and which challenges they correlate to. I’m not aiming to read 7 books but I do want to get to as many as possible.

The Top of my Netgalley TBR

Hello people and welcome back to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I am naming and shaming โ€ฆ myself.

Netgalley is a holy sight of amazingness allowing book lovers and reviewers early access to upcoming releases and I use it often. I’ve been using the site for about two years now. At the start I was doing really well at keeping up with what I requested but then a book slump hit and I kept requesting things and not reading leading to a whole lot of ARCs on my TBR left to read.

I figured today I’d share the books that are my top priority to read. These are the books with the most recent release dates unlike some others which have been on standby for over a year now.

I feel like if I read the newer releases it will motivate me to read the more backlist novels too.
