The Reading Rush – Day 2

by abookormore

So I’m taking part in this year’s Reading Rush, which is happening right now, this week. You can check out their website for details here. This announcement is admittedly pretty late, but I think we can all move past this, because we’re all such strong people.

Thank you for your understanding.

And from now on, I’m going to aim to update every evening with my Reading Rush progress. Huzzah.

There are 7 challenges in this readathon, and today I completed 2 of them! I read My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite which is set in Nigeria, so it completes the challenge ‘Read a Book from a Different Continent.’ I also sprawled out in my garden this morning and read it in one sitting to complete the task ‘Read a Book Completely Outside your House.’

It’s the perfect book for a readathon: short, snappy chapters, and a real page turner. Gorgeous serial killer women have a habit of keeping your attention.

I’m also a quarter of the way through reading The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson. This is a pretty hefty book for a readathon- weighing in at 419 pages- but I’m hoping it will cross off 3 challenges for me, as shown below.

– A book cover the colour of your birthstone. Feast your eyes on the visual aids below!

-A book beginning with ‘The.’ Pretty self explanatory.

-The first book you touch (I laid out a couple of books that fit multiple prompts and then just flailed my hand around until it hit this one- super classy).

Well that’s my day! Best of luck to anyone else getting their read on this week 🤓📖
