I have just recently moved back home and I’m trying to be a big kid and find a real job, but while the search is underway I have loads of free time and what better way than to dedicate to reading! Emily @ Books & Cleverness is hosting a two week long read-a-thon from August 1st to August 15th! Check out her blog to see the rules/sign-up and all that good stuff! The theme of this read-a-thon is reading books that have been gathering dust on your shelves for a very long time! Emily has also created some challenges which you can check out here! With the books I have picked I tried to find ones that are different genres and such since I have been reading and ones that have been sitting on my shelf for some time. I have to say that my TBR is subject to change, but for the most part I will be trying to stick to it! I also haven’t decided on how I will be doing my updates (they will follow my typical read-a-thon update format) I won’t be doing one everyday, but after I decide I will let you know! Now on to the challenges…
♠ Read a book set in the past- The Ravenmaster’s Secret: Escape From The Tower Of London by Elvira Woodruff
♠ Read a classic- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
♠ Read a book written before 2010-
The Wedding by Nicolas Sparks
Fallen by Lauren Kate
♠ Extra: The Storybook of Legends by Shannon Hale
I know this is a very weird assortment, but they are ones I have been neglecting and need to get around to! Hopefully I get to these and more!
If you plan on participating please let me know! I would love to keep up with your updates and see what you will be reading!
