It’s time for this years Reading Rush! I adored this last year, it was so much fun! Did you participate?
Means as though this is only 1 week, I thought I’d just wrap-up at the end.
This years prompts were:
1/ Read a book with a cover that matches the colour of your birth stone.
2/ Read a book that starts with the word “The”.
3/ Read a book that inspired a movie you’ve already seen.
4/ Read the first book you touch.
5/ Read a book completely outside of your house.
6/ Read a book in a genre that you’ve always wanted to read more of.
7/ Read a book that takes place on a different continent than where you live.
7 books in 7 days is pretty ambitions, but I wanted to go for it. Here’s what my TBR was, and how I got on:
Read a book with a cover that matches the colour of your birth stone.
PLANNED: The Gentleman Thief – KATE GRAGG
Oh, what a marvellous romp this book was! I would definitely recommend!
Read a book that starts with the word “The”.
PLANNED: The Malvern Murders – KERRY TOMBS
A cosy mystery that gives me some slight Marple vibes thats set just a couple of counties over from where I live!
Read a book that inspired a movie you’ve already seen.
PLANNED: The Devil Wears Prada – LAUREN WEISBERGER
READ: The Little Prince – ANTONIE DE SAINT-EXUPERY
A charming little children’s story – probably more a fable really. It’s such a beautiful read, and this one includes illustrations by the author, which I adored.
Read the first book you touch.
PLANNED: An Enchantment of Ravens – MARGARET ROGERSON
This book was a delight! I loved all the autumn vibes it gave me – and yes, I have decided that I stan The Autumn Prince.
Read a book completely outside of your house.
PLANNED: Rescue Me – CATHY BRAMLEY
A lovely little short story that will lead into Cathy’s upcoming new book. I got a bit teary-eyed reading this – and I can’t wait to see this unfold further.
Read a book in a genre that you’ve always wanted to read more of.
PLANNED: Cheer Up Love – SUSAN CALMAN
A brutally honest look into Susan’s experiences of mental health – peppered with humour.
Read a book that takes place on a different continent than where you live.
PLANNED: The Bromance Book Club – LYSSA KAY ADAMS
I adored this! It was funny, charming, and heartwarming. The first rule of book club, you don’t talk about book club.
