A-Z Reading Challenge.

Hey Guys, Welcome to another post! So I have found out about a readathon called the #AtoZreadathon , I really liked the look of this readathon and wanted to take part but unfortunately it started at the start of May and finishes at the end of May. I have missed majority of the readathon. I still want to try this challenge so I am going to tweak it a little so I can do it. The main aim of the readathon is to read books that match the letters of the alphabet. There were three difficulty levels and I have decided to try and attempt the hard level. This means I will be attempting to read 26 books in one month, I am starting the readathon on the 22nd of May and I will finish on the 22nd of June. This is one of the most adventurous things I have ever tried to do with my reading. I have however got a side plan that if I find it too hard to complete in one month I will give myself two months to complete the list.

I have already selected the books I want to read for each letter which I will list in just a moment. I have chosen books that have been on my kindle for a while and also a couple from NetGalley that I really need to read. Anyway onto the books I plan to read:

A – Artful by Peter David

B – Bellamy and the Brute by Alicia Michaels

C – Caraval by Stephanie Garber

D – Dragon of Ash and Stars by H. Leighton Dickson.

E – An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

F – The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Hunter

G – The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

H – He Said / She Said by Erin Kelly

I – Ignited by Laurie Wetzel

J – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

K – King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

L – The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.

M – Mayan Blood by Theresa Dalayne

N – Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

O – Obsidian by Jennifer L Arementrout

P – The Palace Library by Steven Loveridge

Q – The Queen Must Die by K. A. S. Quinn

R – Red Queen by Christina Henry

S – A Suitable Lie by Michael J Malone

T – The Time Thief by Natalia Schellhaas

U – Unenchanted by Chanda Hahn

V – Vinyl by Sophia Elaine Hansen

W – White Bones by Graham Masterton

X – X: A Short Story by Jack Croxall

Y – A Year and a Day by Isabelle Broom

Z – Zo and the Impossible Gardens by C.H Aalberry

Well there you go my reading list for this challenge. I don’t plan to read these is order and will just pick and chose from the list. I have already started reading A Suitable Lie and I hope to finish that tonight or tomorrow morning. I will be doing weekly updates to let you guys know how I’m getting on and what I have read in that week.

Happy Reading and See you for my next post.

Bout of Books Friday Progress 

Hey Guys. I can’t believe the readathon is almost over. The time has flown by but I’ve had a lot of fun. So I visited a charity shop yesterday and got five books one of which was The Magical World of Harry Potter by David Colbert. I had to read it straight away as I am obsessed with anything to do with Harry Potter. It was a really good informative read and I loved reading all about the different meanings behind things in Harry Potter. I finished the book in pretty much one sitting. So I read a total of 224 pages today which I am super happy about.

Today’s Challenge was Book Spine Rainbow. I used my original editions of Harry Potter that I have had since I was a child.

My Progress 

  • Number of pages read – 224.
  • Total pages read – 654
  • Number of books read – 1
  • Total books read – 3

Bout of Books 19 Thursday Progress

Hey Guys. Well today’s progress wasn’t as good as I had hoped but I still managed to read 70 pages of The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury. Im glad it’s the weekend because I should get a lot morecently read. My plan is to finish the sin eaters daughter and at least one other book.

Today’s Challenge is Character Dating Profile. I have chosen Kaz Brekker for this. And all I need is a picture because Kaz wouldn’t make a profile. He is confident enough not to have one so I think he would just upload a picture.
