Two Week Read-a-thon (August 17th – 30th, 2020)

Hello Bookworms!

As I mentioned in my most recent post, I have been feeling a wee bit burnt out when it comes to all things bookish – reading, blogging, etc. So, as a way to motivate myself to get back into the swing of things, I have decided to challenge myself to a two week Read-a-thon!

During the two week period from Monday August 17th, 2020 to Sunday August 30th, 2020, I will be doing my very best to read as many of the books in my To Be Read Box as possible. I will post daily updates on Twitter and Instagram, and I will also post a one week check-in and a wrap-up here, on my blog!

So, you’re probably wondering – what books are currently hanging out in my To Be Read Box? Well, most of the books in said box have been in there since June (since I received them as birthday gifts), with only a couple of newer additions from throughout July and August. These books include:

  1. The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski (Release Date: March 3, 2020)
  2. Thorn by Intisar Khanani (Release Date: March 24, 2020)
  3. The Silence of Bones by June Hur (Release Date: April 21, 2020)
  4. The Archer At Dawn by Swati Teerdhala (Release Date: May 26, 2020)
  5. The Paper Girl of Paris by Jordyn Taylor (Release Date: May 26, 2020)
  6. A Peculiar Peril by Jeff Vandermeer (Release Date: July 7, 2020)
  7. The Princess Will Save You by Sarah Henning (Release Date: July 7, 2020)
  8. The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen (Release Date: August 18th, 2020)

I won’t be reading these books in any particular order. Instead, I will more so be leaning towards what I am in the mood/motivated to read – beginning with The Princess Will Save You by Sarah Henning. I have been excited to read this one for quite some time, so I think that it will be a great place to start this impromptu read-a-thon!

Remember – you can stay up to date on my two week read-a-thon by following me on Twitter and Instagram, where I will do my best to post daily updates!

April 2020 Reading List

Well Bookworms, I write to you from a much different position than I did a month ago, upon the creation of my March 2020 Reading List. To say that the events of the past month were unexpected would be, in my humble opinion, a tad bit of an understatement. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine widespread school closures, emergency measures, and the kinds of heartbreak and catastrophe that are even now shaping our world. And yet, here we are, and I find myself looking towards the little joys and victories in life, rather than focusing on the uncertainties around me.

One little joy I am happy to celebrate is the amount of books that I read in March. While I had hoped to read a lot over March Break, an extra two weeks of ample reading time allowed me to really get through a significant amount of the books in my To Be Read Box, including: House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City) by Sarah J Maas (Release Date: March 3, 2020), Havenfall by Sara Holland (Release Date: March 3, 2020), A Song Below Water by Bethany C Morrow (Release Date: June 2, 2020), The Dark Tide by Alicia Jasinka (Release Date: June 2, 2020), and more! Honestly, this is a major victory for me, and I am considering celebrating it with a Reading Wrap-Up post.
