The Reading Rush is an annual week-long readathon this week, and I am hoping it will get me out of this slump! The event lasts from July 20-26. There are fun activities and sprints to participate in on Twitter and Instagram and, of course, the reading prompts. Below is the video with all the details and the books I’m going to attempt to get through!
- Read a book with a cover that matches the color of your birth stone.
- Read a book that starts with the word “The.”
- Read a book that inspired a movie you’ve already seen.
- Read the first book you touch.
- Read a book completely outside of your house.
- Read a book in a genre that you’ve always wanted to read more of.
- Read a book that takes place on a different continent than where you live.
Now, this is a lot of prompts, I know, BUT they can be combined! No worries! The point is to try to read more. It doesn’t matter how many books you get through. Also, ALL books are acceptable. Yes, that means audiobooks and graphic novels too.
Add me on the website here!
My Reading Rush TBR
(I’m combining a few prompts because there’s no way I can read 7 books in a week while I finish writing The Lost Prince and keep up with my master’s courses. On top of everything else haha.)
