I decided to participate in a last-minute readathon this February! I’m mostly using my current February TBR for the list anyway, but the motivation will help me get through them more quickly, I think!
The readathon dates are from February 6 – February 12! I found this readathon via Shannon’s Twitter handle!
THESE ARE THE CHALLENGES
TBR shelf for over a year:
The book that’s been on my TBR for over a year is definitely The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson! It’s not that I’m putting it off… I just know that I have the Mistborn trilogy, plus the series after it to read… That’s six big books! It’s time to finally start, though. YAY!
Most recent book haul:
This is easy. Definitely Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I’m already reading it and it’s short, so hopefully that’ll be finished very quickly!
My January book haul post is here if you missed it!
First book in a series:
I could use The Final Empire again, but I won’t. I’ll go for Frostblood by Elly Blake. I won it from Hachette so I’m very excited to read it! Everyone’s been talking about its elemental magic (which reminds me of Avatar the Last Airbender if I’m being honest) and I’m quite intrigued.
Catch up on a series:
I haven’t hauled this yet, I got it from a friend on February 1st. It’s The New Hunger by Isaac Marion, a novella-sequel-prequel to his first book, Warm Bodies. It’s technically a prequel, but should be read after the first book. Yay zombies! I really enjoyed Warm Bodies (both the book and the film) and I’m looking forward to learning more about some of its characters.
Out of your comfort zone:
Maybe Grief is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter. It’s short and is supposed to be sad. I think I’ll be in need of a small, emotional read after having so much fantasy escapism! I also shouldn’t keep putting books off if I hear they’re sad – what if I end up loving them anyway?
Okay I think that’s all for now! Hopefully I can get to finishing 1 or 2 of the (short books) within the timeframe of 6 days!
Are you doing this readathon too? Do you have a February TBR list? Let me know in the comments and good luck if you’re participating!!
