This is my first readathon, yay!
I heard of the #ScallywagAThon from Booksandlala and just so happened to have a week off from work so it seems that the stars have aligned for me…
- Pick a starting point (1 – 5)
- Follow the dots
- Pick four challenges
- Complete all of them between 20 – 27 May!
Challenge 1: Sirens Song – has mermaids or sirens
For this I picked To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo – I believe our main character is siren royalty who collects hearts? Do I need to say any more?
Challenge 2: Shark Bait (ho ha ha?) – has red on the cover
I picked The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve wanted to read this one for AGES but have just never gotten around to reading it – how exciting.
Challenge 3: There She Blows – exploded with popularity this year
I didn’t really have anything that fit this criterion (and I didn’t want to go out and buy more books) so, I decided on Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. Love, Simon has recently been released as a movie and has exploded in popularity – so I’m guessing this has too?
Challenge 4: Blow Down the Man-woman author
For this one, I just picked a book I really want to read soon (as most of my current TBR is women authors!) so I went with Shatter Me Tahereh Mafi – another book I’ve wanted to read for ages but never managed to get to.
