The Reading Rush TBR

Hey there!

Today is the first day of this year’s The Reading Rush, a read-a-thon that lasts for a week and always has 7 prompts. However, there’s no way I could actually read 7 books in 7 days, so I always double up on some prompts

Anyway, here’s my TBR for this week. I did choose an audiobook and a short story for convenience’s sake, but if I do manage to read all of these early I’m sure I can sneak another book in here.

Read a book with a cover that matches the color of your birthstone

As a March baby, my birthstone is the Aquamarine. It’s a very beautiful gem that reminds me of the ocean and that mermaid movie of the same name 😂 for this prompt I’ll be reading Clap When You Land, that has a bit of blue on the cover and that I’ve been meaning to read for a while now. It counts, ok. At least, I’m pretending it does (and if you’re picky with rules, then Galatea will also fit this prompt perfectly).

Read a book that stars with the word “the”

The Hobbit because I’ve wanted to read it since forever, it’s short and I love LoTR.

Read the first book you touch

I wanted to pick an audiobook for this week, and I’m Not Dying With You Tonight was the first one that I touched on my app. 

Read a book that inspired a movie you’ve already seen

The Hobbit again, because despite watching all three movies, I’ve never read the book. Also, isn’t it weird that such a short book could be made into 3 separate and very lengthy movies?

Read a book completely outside of your house

For this one I’ll go with Galatea, a short story by Madeline Miller. I read The Song of Achilles earlier this year and it broke me, so I’m looking forward to reading more by her. Also, it’s another greek myth retelling, so it couldn’t get any better. 

Read a book in a genre that you’ve always wanted to read more of

This is me bending the rules a bit (again). I’m choosing Clap When You Land because it’s a novel written in verse and I don’t think I’ve ever read something like this but it sounds so good! 

Read a book that takes place on a different continent than where you live

I believe Galatea takes place in Greece, which is very far away from the Americas. However, if I’m wrong, I’m sure I can read something else for this prompt. Any suggestions are very welcome.

That’s it for my TBR. I’m very excited about this read-a-thon and really hoping that I can read all these books in one week. I’m a bit of a slow reader so we’ll see if I actually manage it.

Are you participating in The Reading Rush this year? What book are you most excited about from your TBR?

Until next time,
