Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
The biggest readathon on the internet, The Reading Rush (formally known as BookTubeaThon), is starting tomorrow and ending on July 28! I have been participating in this readathon since it began, and I look forward to participating in it this time around! This readathon includes several different reading challenges, and here are all of the books I plan to read to accomplish them! Click here to add me as a friend on The Reading Rush website!
CHALLENGE #1: Read a book with purple on the cover.
For this first challenge, I plan to read WITH THE FIRE ON HIGH by Elizabeth Acevado. Obviously, the background cover for this book is purple, and I am SO excited to read it! I will say, I feel like I was the only person that didn’t absolutely love The Poet X (her debut novel), so I am interested to see my thoughts on it.
CHALLENGE #2: Read a book in the same spot for the entire time.
For the second challenge, I plan on reading DUMPLIN by Julie Murphy! I have been wanting to read this book since I attended my first ever HCC Frenzy Presents event, and hope to get around to it during this readathon! Even though this book isn’t super short, I plan on reading it in my backyard this week.
CHALLENGE #3: Read a book you meant to read last year.
I have decided to read GIRL MADE OF STARS by Ashley Herring Blake for this challenge! Ever since hearing Kayla’s thoughts on this book, I have been dying to read it.
CHALLENGE #4: Read an authors debut novel.
Can you believe that THE SILENT PATIENT is Alex Michaelides’ debut novel?! I was shocked to find this out, since everybody has been raving over it for the past several months!
CHALLENGE #5: Read a book with a non-human main character.
This was by far the hardest challenge to chose a book for! I heard from a friend that THIS SAVAGE SONG by Victoria Schwab has a main character that is a monster, so I figured this would work perfectly for this challenge.
CHALLENGE #6: Read a book with 5 or more words in the title.
I am reading WITH THE FIRE ON HIGH for this challenge as well as the first one!
CHALLENGE #7: Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptation.
I am reading DUMPLIN for the challenge as well as challenge #2! My mom has both read this book and watched the movie, and I hope to do so this weekend!
Those are all of the books I plan to read for The Reading Rush this week! Are you participating? If so, tell me what you plan on reading in the comments! ALSO, add me as a friend on TheReadingRush.com by clicking this link!

I hope you get to all of them, and enjoy them of course!
Unfortunately I’m unable to participate this time around 😦
I’m reading Dumplin’ for Challenge 7 too! It looks like you have an excellent TBR set up 🤗 enjoy!
I struggle with week long readathons, I prefer month long. Good luck with your TBR though, I hope you smash it!
