Welcome to my The Reading Rush reading blog!

I’m so excited to be sharing this with you all today. This was my first time joining The Reading Rush. The timing was never perfect for me before but here we are! This was such an amazing experience. I loved challenging myself and finding out how many books I could actually read in a week. I found some new favorites (that I can’t recommend enough), reread an old and forever favorite, and basically spent a lot of time screaming about all of these.

Do you ever make a list of books for the year that you just have to get to? I’ve made a list this year! I’m hoping this will keep my accountable and remind me to get to these. Some are backlist titles and others are new releases. Some of these I’ve put off reading for way too long and hopefully 2020 will be the year I pick them up.

TVD

Okay, teenage me is thriving! On Twitter the other day it was announced that there would be a The Vampire Diaries themed readathon happening in June titles The Readathon Diaries (Click on that link to get all the details). I of course would never pass up a chance to join a readathon like this. There are three teams to choose from (Werewolves, Witches, and Vampires) and from the headline I think you know which team I chose. This came at the perfect time because my best friends and I decided to rewatch The Vampire Diaries together next month! Keep reading to see the book on my tbr for this readathon.

Vampires Galore | 2 weeks of Vampire content

Vampires Galore

Look at what you’ve stumbled upon.

I’ve gone through great pains to make this post. I’ve been trying to come up with new content to spice up my blog and reading. This pandemic is slowly taking away my energy to blog and university hasn’t ended completely just yet. The amount of stress is real but I had to read an arc of a vampire book and ended up falling down the rabbit hole. I wasn’t one of the readers who grew up with Twilight but it has been of the series I’ve been wanting to read just out of curiosity. The only vampire books I’ve read have been Vampire Academy and some other books that aren’t predominantly about vampires but feature them. So this was a really fun challenge to put together! (even though I ended up reading a particular series).

My #AGameofBooksathon TBR is here!

This readathon (like many others) has been in my head for some time now. I’ve never watched Game of Thrones but I’ve always wanted to read the books. So I created a GoT themed readathon. There is a group book which will be A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’ll be explaining more as I go along.

If you’re interested in joining the readathon you can find more info, here. As well as the sign up page, here.

I discovered this amazing reading challenge a few weeks ago, and I knew I had to participate. For those who don’t know about this challenge you can find out more details from the lovely hosts Shealea, CW, Lily and Vicky.

I was aiming for the Philippine tarsier but I have so many books that I want to get to that I upped my level to the Indian Cobra! Which means I’m aiming to read 11 to 20 books. (will I regret my choices? only time will tell)
