What books do you want to read?
So I finally looked at my WordPress Homepage in the backend view of my website (usually I go straight to page edits or stats), and came across this little Daily Writing Prompt feature. It looks like once you click on it it links your post to the prompt for other WordPress users to see.
There were a couple different prompts available but given that this blog is mainly a book blog, and that the Bookly App is having their HIIT Readathon this week, I chose this prompt to highlight my TBR for the Readathon. But first some background about the Readathon for those who may not be familiar with Bookly:
Bookly is a goal setting app for readers, to assist with recording reading times, notes and achieving goals. You can set different goals based on page count, book count, and time counts. Along with the goal setting, Bookly has some community building features in the app and on Instagram and Twitter, including reading challenges and giveaways. To help end the first month of the new year and going strong into the second Bookly started the HIIT Readathon on the 29th of January until Sunday, February 5th. This particular Readathon has three different prizes $25, $50 and $100, in order to qualify for the prize you have to read a minimum of 8 hours using the app. They even include stretch goals in the form of reading tiers: Power Starter (up to 8 hours), Speedster (8-15 hours), and Endurance Monster (15 hours+). As an added bonus, for anyone who completes the photo challenge on Instagram you’re entered to win a $15 voucher. Here is my first photo for the photo challenge:
- Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
- This book is a marathon of a book, because I’m such a mood reader finishing long books is hard for me. So using Bookly I can pace out my reading so I don’t burn out on a long book like this.
- The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
- This book is one I started in October, because I was looking for a new version of a classic and this one seemed perfect.
- Circe by Madeline Miller
- This book has been my go to title to refresh my reading pallet. First person stories seem faster to read, and more easy to fall into during a slump.
- We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon
- Well, it is almost Valentine’s Day, so why not add a romance I’ve been meaning to finish.
I find I can read for longer, and faster when I’m constantly switching books, and reading multiple different genres means I’m not stuck in the same world for too many hours.
If you were making the ideal fast paced TBR what would be on your list? Have you ever participated in the Bookly Readathons? Have you ever used one of these WordPress Prompts?
