Reading Rush 2019

Reading Rush (formerly known as Booktubeathon) is a weeklong challenge where online video creators and their bookish followers try to read as much as they can within a seven day period. This year, the readathon runs from July 22 to July 28 and although the challenges are all optional, I would like to meet them all, including the bonus prompt to read 7 books within 7 days. Listed below are the challenges and the titles I have selected to try to complete each one. If some of these titles seem familiar, that might be because I am trying to incorporate books I have already identified to meet other reading challenges that I am participating in, or books that have been on my TBR shelf for a while.

  1. Read a book with purple on the cover – The Tesla Legacy /K. K. Perez
  2. Read a book in the same spot – Gourmet Rhapsody /Muriel Barberry
  3. A book you meant to read last year – History of the Rain /Niall Williams
  4. An author’s first book – Lily and The Octopus /Steven Rowley
  5. Nonhuman main character – Lily and The Octopus /Steven Rowley
  6. 6 or more words in the title – A Little History of the World / E. H. Gombrich
  7. Read a book and watch its movie adaptation – Schindler’s Ark /Thomas Kenneally
  8. (Bonus) Read 7 books – Love from A to Z /S. K. Ali
