Now that I’m no longer working on weekdays, this means I have more time to spare for reading. With more time to read, I decide this month I’m going to do the 30 Day Reading Challenge. I got to know of this challenge from Little Book Owl and since I’ve been on a reading slump recently although I have time to read, I thought this challenge could help to get me back into reading.
This is a my TBR for this challenge. Out of the 5 books, 2 of them are from a previous readathon that I participated and have already started reading.
I’m starting the challenge today, 2 May, and Only Girls Allowed by Debra Moffit from the Pink Locker Society series will be my first book for the challenge. I’m reading this book to participate in a readathon, A Yearathon, which is happening from 1 to 7 May. The A Yearathon is a monthly readathon on the first full week of every month with a different theme each month. The theme for May is Reread.
So yes, I’ve read this book before a few years ago. This series is actually a kids to teen read and consists 4 books. I’ve read 3 books then and didn’t read the last book. I’ve been thinking of reading the last book although I’m way out of the age for this series. Since it’s been years, I thought I need a refresher to the storyline before I go into the final book so I decided I’m going to reread the 3 books I’ve read and what’s a more perfect time than this readathon with the theme of reread.
After finishing the first book of the Pink Locker Society series, Only Girls Allowed, which I hope to finish before the readathon ends, I’m going straight into the second book, Best Kept Secret. Considering that these books are quite short with only 138 pages for the first book and 155 pages for the second book, the font size is big and I’ve read them before, I hope to at least finish the first book and start the second book before the readathon ends on 7 May.
The third book for this challenge is a poetry book, Lullabies by Lang Leav, that I’ve started reading almost 2 months ago when I did the All The Short Ones readathon in March. I was expecting to have already finished it in April but due to my reading slump recently, I didn’t manage to finish it. Since I’m already more than halfway into the book, I’ll make sure I finish it during this 30 Day Reading Challenge.
I like to read 2 books concurrently, a fiction story and a poetry book. So when I’ve finished Lullabies, The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan will be the next poetry book I’ll be reading.
The last book for this challenge is another book I’ve started reading, Autumn’s Kiss by Bella Thorne, which is the second book of the Autumn Falls series. I planned to start reading it during the All The Short Ones readathon in March which I failed but started it shortly after that readathon. I’m only a little bit into this book and will go full force into reading it after I’ve finish the 2 books from the Pink Locker Society series.
I failed to read for a full month previously and didn’t even finish a single book during the All The Short Ones readathon which lasted for a month in March due to my hectic work and life schedule. Now that I have more time to spare for reading with a less hectic schedule, I hope to have great achievement for this challenge and see a drastic difference compared the readathon in March.
