Reading Rush Book Challenge

The Reading Rush has begun!

Yesterday marked the first day of a week long Reading Rush book challenge.

If you don’t know what Reading Rush is, it’s a reading challenge that dedicates an entire week of reading to book loving participants based on daily themes and includes contests and prizes for various activities that take place throughout the week. It was formerly known as Book-Tube-A-Thon.

My pick for the entire week (I think it will meet all of the challenges) is:

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

I’m doing it a little different this year because, I feel like painting at the moment, and when you feel like you’re in the mood to paint, you have to paint. Before the inspiration and desire goes away. In fact I’m in the middle of painting a pirate ship at the moment, so I’m mostly listening to audiobooks this year.

I’m also participating in the Libro.fm Summer Listening Challenge as well. I really want to win a year of free audiobooks!

If you are interested in participating in any of these challenges this year check them out here:

My Year in Books 2018

Here is a review of the reading challenge I completed for 2018! I started on Goodreads in March and have thoroughly enjoyed the way it allows you to be able to easily access, organize, and shelve all the books you’re wanting to read.

I focused my challenge on quality over quantity and I tried to get out of my comfort zone by exploring genres outside of my typical love for historical nonfiction. I joined a few book clubs, participated in a read-a-thon, and started doing book reviews which have all been a lot of fun.

Librofm-Screen-LandscapeThough I typically prefer prints, I did read several on digital format and listened to quite a few audiobooks which is unusual for me. And I am so amazed at how talented some of these voice actors are! That really would be such a fun job. I also found a site called Libro.fm, which has a wonderful selection of audiobooks and helps you in supporting your local bookstore.

Without further ado, I read so many amazing books this year and I’m excited to share them with you so here is my book journey for 2018:
