message 29: by Camry (new)

Camry I've chosen blue as my color and picked out three books (two physical & one audiobook). The two physical books are Exit, Pursued by a Bear and Shatter Me. The audiobook is an audible original called Sovereign. I just finished EPBAB and it was great! I was a cheerleader for six years, so I tend to be a little biased towards things that involve cheer (anyone seen the new Netflix docuseries haha) but I also feel like it handled the sensitive topics very well.

BlurryBug | 386 comments I spent day 1 travelling home a long weekend conference/party of the year .

message 43: by Lizzy (new)

Lizzy Seitz (cookinggurl43) | 240 comments So I ended up picking white since I have a book for school that I have to read with a white and black cover. So far today I've made progress on The Classic Slave Narratives Seven Complete Slave Narratives by Sojourner Truth for class and The Test by Sylvain Neuvel
I'm thinking I'll finish The Test before class tomorrow since it's relatively short and then I'm not sure what I'll pick up next but I do have more class reading to do tomorrow night too


message 44: by Vivian (new)

Vivian Wolkoff | 117 comments Currently reading: Heidi's Guide to Four Letter Words by Tara Sivec Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters

I didn't get a lot of reading done so far (It's around 10 AM on Wednesday)... but I did get a lot of work done. Still, I started Heidi's Guide to Four Letter Words and Would Like to Meet. I also read some of Circe by Madeline Miller -- but that's for another readathon. I'm hoping to read some more of Heidi's... and Would Like... today. I think these will be the two books I'll end up reading this week (along with Circe). To be honest, if I manage to finish one of them I'm going to consider it a solid win and a successful readathon.
