The Reading Rush

I know I just finished a readathon yesterday, but since I love readathons so much I decided to participate in another one. The Reading Rush is a week-long readathon (starting today and ending this Sunday) with different reading challenges and badges you can earn on their website for completing each challenge. I found out about The Reading Rush while watching BookTube and I thought I would try it even though I'm not a BookTuber.

There are seven reading challenges but I don't think I can read seven books in a week (I probably won't even finish all these), so I'm going to combine some of the challenges.



Read a book with purple on the cover/read an author's first book - The Cellar by Richard Laymon

The copy I have has The Cellar in purple font.

Read a book you meant to read last year - Kill Hill Carnage by Tim Meyer

I bought this book for my Kindle last summer and was so excited to read it, but I just kept putting other books first, as I so often do.

Read a book with a non-human main character - Thor by Wayne Smith

This book is a werewolf story told from a dog's perspective. I could've used this for "read and watch a book to movie adaptation" because it was made into the film Bad Moon, but I wanted to choose a book with an adaptation that I haven't seen yet.

Pick a book that has five or more words in the title/read a book in the same spot the entire time - The Summer is Ended and We Are Not Yet Saved by Joey Comeau

This is the shortest book on my TBR, so I think it'll be the easiest to read in the same spot. I normally don't read books in one spot. I read on the bus, on my breaks at work, in bed, on the couch, on my balcony, in the bathtub...so this will be a challenge for me.

Read and watch a book to movie adaptation - Meg by Steve Alten

This would also work for "book you meant to read last year" because I planned on reading it before I watched the film that was released last year, but didn't end up reading it or seeing the film.
