I’m taking on another readathon!
I’ve never been a huge fan of readathons (being a slow reader and all…), but after completing the O.W.Ls readathon successfully in April, I’ve become confident and have decided to take on another readathon.
If you are not into reading blog posts, you can watch my TBR video here or at the end of this post.
What is it??
The Because We Can Readathon (BWCR) is a new readathon created by three wonderful YouTubers – Kat (Stars and Embers), Cat (BrewsandReviews) and Jenna (JustaLittleBitRandom) – which runs from Monday the 11th of May till the 17th of May.
This is the first year of the readathon and because of this, the theme is Firsts! There are 7 reading prompts & 7 YouTube Video prompts for the week of the Readathon. I won’t spoil much here, so please go check out the YouTube channel to find out more!
Why Was It Created?
Because they can!
I chose 4 books to fulfil the 7 reading prompts for this readathon, all based around the theme of firsts.
The books I’ve chosen to read – and the corresponding prompts – are:
Zenith by Sasha Alsberg & Lindsay Cummings
– Read the first book in a series
– Read an author’s first book
– Read a book by a new-to-me author
Lifelike by Jay Kristoff
– Spin around & pick the first book I touch (watch my video to see how I landed on this 😉
Deviate by Jay Kristoff
– A book with a ‘1’ or ‘First’ in the title
– A book released in 2019 with its first birthday in 2020
All The Invisible Things Orlagh Collins
– Read a book beginning with ‘A’
