SECOND ROUND: May 10 ~ 13

For this round, there will only be 4 challenges, as there will only be 4 days in the read-a-ton. This time the challenges are going to be related to the reasons why we pick up books up.

I PICKED THIS BOOK UP BECAUSE OF THE [insert challenge]:
📕COVER:
Pick a book because the cover is totally a beauty or just your aesthetic.
📗SYNOPSIS:Pick a book that captivated you after reading the synopsis.
📘AUTHOR:Pick a book because you keep hearing people talk about the author.
📙TITLE: Pick a book with a title that either fascinates you or you find completely absurd.

📚Hopy these challenges help you pick a different type of books. Feel free to post your tbr down below to keep track. This round there will not be a group read.

- cover - Rebel Spring (Falling Kingdoms, #2) by Morgan Rhodes
- synopsis - fawn by Nash Summers
- author: Well Hung (Big Rock, #3) by Lauren Blakely
- title: I Am Not a Serial Killer (John Cleaver, #1) by Dan Wells


message 7: by Tash (new)

Tash | 10 comments Ill join in this round but only one book because I'm currently reading 4 others haha. I would like to read Kiss the Sky by D.C. Gallin because I love the cover. :)


message 8: by lacy (new)

lacy white (lacymiri) COVER: Infinity by Jus Accardo. I adore simplistic covers and this is right up my alley. This is also an ARC because I am that behind on ARCs.

SYNOPSIS: The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh. I heard about this from another blogger and I was immediately hooked! I was approved for an ARC so I can't wait to get started.

AUTHOR: The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson. I keep hearing how great his series keeps getting. I finished the first three of Mistborn and I really want to continue. Plus it helps that I own this!

TITLE: The Witch Sea by S.E Diemer. I have this on my kindle and I have been super into witches lately. Plus, I really need to read a lot of the free books I've obtained on my kindle.

Angela Auten | 2 comments I actually have a set list for what I want to read...so I will probably just base my TBR off that. I most likely will join this round. Need to update my TBR because I just finished Point of Retreat and want to read the last book in the series.

Cover: Sneaky Snow White
Synopsis: Sinful Cinderella
Author: Letting Ana Go
Title: Rotten Rapunzel

This will definitely be an interesting list. Just wish the read-a-thon was later when I had more time to read. I will see how I do.

message 18: by Ellen (new)

Ellen (arcticlibrarian) 📕COVER: A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas Because I have already started it, and I do like the cover.
📗SYNOPSIS: Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha, #1) by Tomi Adeyemi Another book I have started, but that got lost in all my exam prep.
📘AUTHOR: De dødes tjern by André Bjerke Considered a classic in Norway. I have wanted to read it, and Bjerke's other works for a long time.

HAPPY READING!!!! Hope this round is successful. I am starting today but I think I am gonna change my TBR already. 🤣


message 21: by lucie (new)

lucie (arey) Happy reading all!
It's almost 8pm here and so far I only managed to read 120pages of The King's Men and I am almost done with fawn.

I think I am going to change my TBR a little too, haha


message 22: by Hamad (new)

Hamad | 3 comments Thanks Sara, I have never read this much in a long time!!
Happy reading all <3


Sara ➽ Ink Is My Sword (inkismysword) | 45 comments Mod
@lucie GREAT!!! And yes, I understand changing things. I am awful sticking to things.

@Hamad I am so happy to hear that! HOPE IS A SUCCESS UNTIL THE END.


message 24: by Breana (new)

Breana (breeofoz) | 1 comments Haha I have to cheat a lil bit and must categories, but that's okay I'm back to reading after a nightmarish finals week and that's what matters!

Cover/Author Circe by Madeline Miller This book is so stunning in person guys, like even the ARC I have is beautiful and I've also heard nothing but good things about Miller's other book The Song of Achilles so I thought I should pick this beaut up!!

Synopsis: Outlander (Outlander, #1) by Diana Gabaldon I started this back in February and I'm having a hard time getting back into it though I am enjoying it!! It's a tad slow plot-wise. Time travel, Scotland, and Scottish men? Yes, please.

Title: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman The Jungle Book is one of my faves from when I was little. Taking that to a graveyard sounds amazing! Plus I guess Niel Gaiman could count for an author too because I haven't read anything by him before!!

lacy white (lacymiri) I managed to finish The Witch Sea as it was just a short story. It was pretty good and now I want to read all things mermaid.

I'm going to be starting The Alloy of Law. Hopefully I can finish it before the read-a-thon is up!


Sara ➽ Ink Is My Sword (inkismysword) | 45 comments Mod
