Easter Readathon 2019: TBR

Last year I took part in the Easter Readathon hosted by Kate from Reading Through Infinity and I had so much fun! I managed to power through four books during that Bank Holiday weekend which you can read about here. Well, I am super excited because this year it’s back!

You can check out Kate’s post here for all the information but these are the essentials:

  • The Readathon runs from Friday 19th to Monday 22nd April
  • Kate will be hosting reading sprints on Twitter every few hours so make sure to give her a follow
  • Include the hashtag #EasterReadathon with any updates so that we can all see how each other is getting on
  • This is not just for those celebrating Easter – it is just named this way because of the time the holiday falls
  • Kate is also hosting some super fun challenges which you’ll find further down. This is a new element and something I’m really excited for
  • There is an amazing giveaway for all those taking part this year so read Kate’s post for all the rules

Ok so now we have all the information wrapped up, it’s time for my TBR! I actually found choosing a couple of my books quite easy, mostly because the ones I had been planning to read soon anyway fell quite nicely into a couple of the challenge categories.

A stack of the books I plan to read held in front of my bookcase.

Book: Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
Challenge Categories: Yellow or green cover / Graphic novel that has been on your TBR for ages / New to you author / LGBTQIAP+ book
I have heard some really awesome things about Heartstopper and I have been meaning to read it for the longest time! I picked it up while at an event at Waterstones earlier this week and think it’ll be the perfect read for the Bank Holiday weekend. Not only because it’s meant to be THE cutest, but also because it ticks off so many categories.

Book: Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams
Challenge Categories: Yellow or green cover / Book by an author of colour / New to you author
I picked Queenie up at the aforementioned Waterstones event, where I also got to meet Candice and listen to a Q&A between herself and the lovely Kimi from our local store. This doesn’t sound like my typical read but after hearing Candice discuss her debut it sounds super intriguing and I’m looking forward to reading it.

Book: The Quiet at the End of the World by Lauren James
Challenge Categories: LGBTQIAP+ book
I read The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it so I have high hopes for her latest novel. The main character is bisexual, and there is only one category I can put this read in – unless we count the robot that joins them as a pet? At around 300 pages I think I’ll be able to get through it quite quickly too!

Book: Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Challenge Categories: New beginnings / New to you author
I think I might be being a little optimistic here but I would like to make some headway with Wicked Saints which I’ve been excited about ever since it exploded onto the Twitter scene a few months back. I’m seriously shoe-horning this into a category the synopsis eludes to the fact that there is a lot of change afoot in this world so surely that counts as a new beginning?

There we have it, my TBR for the Easter Readathon! If you want to take part please let me know what you’re planning to read in the comments, and if you have any suggestions for the categories I’ve missed (a Spring or Summer related book and a book involving an animal) please let me know and I may consider adding those.

The Easter Readathon bingo card. Categories include:

Read a book that's spring or summer themed
Read an LGBTQIAP+ book
Read a book by a new-to-you author
Read a book by an author of colour
Read a book that involves an animal or pet
Read a graphic novel that's been on your TBR for ages
Read a book about new beginnings
Read a book with a yellow or green cover

    Your TBR is so good and I’m really happy you’re joining in Amy! I’m keen to hear what you think of all of these, but especially Heartstopper because I loved that. I’ve not read the others, so let me know if they’re good!

    I never do well at readathons so never join them. They just don’t tend to fit in with my life unfortunately. But good luck with this! I need to grab Wicked Saints at some point too!

    Oooh I hope you had fun with the Easter Readathon. I had been planning on getting some reading done but we ended up going to a convention, although it was an SFF convention so technically it also had a lot to do with books and I bought a lot of books haha!
