Hello, book lovers! 💕
So the stay home reading rush is taking place from April 16th to the 19th. I originally saw this tag on Kathryn’s blog. I wasn’t tagged in this, and I’m not sure if I’m participating in the Stay Home Reading Rush, but I figured I’d give this tag a go.
How is your reading going whilst staying at home?
It’s been going okay. I feel like I should have gotten more read. I mean, I have gotten some books done, but not nearly as many as I would have liked.
Where have you been reading at home?
I mostly read in my room on my bed. Though sometimes I venture to the living room and read on the couch.
What is the best book you’ve read during isolation?
I haven’t read many, but I’d probably have to say All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace. I’m still in the middle of Verity by Colleen Hoover, and when (or if) I finish it, it might surpass All the Stars and Teeth.
What’s your favorite feel good book?
Definitely any book by Becky Albertalli. My favorites are Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda and The Upside of Unrequited.
What is a book you wish you could buy/borrow from the library?
I’m not really sure, mainly because I have a decent amount of books on my shelves that I haven’t read yet, and I want to get to those before I buy/borrow any more.
Who is an author you want to shout out during this time?
Becky Albertalli and Morgan Matson! Their books are such feel good reads and make me so happy.
What is your Reading Rush TBR?
I haven’t given much thought on my TBR for the Reading Rush, mainly because I’m not sure if I’m going to be participating. And if I do, I’ll try to match my TBR for the O.W.L.’s readathon to this one since I don’t usually get more than 4 or 5 books read in the month. Even if I participate, I might not be able to complete all of the challenges.
The challenges for the Reading Rush are:
Read a book with a house on the cover
This might be a stretch since I’m pretty sure there are castles on the cover rather than actual houses, but I’d consider Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore for this challenge.
Read A Book In The Same Room The Whole Time
Any of the books on my O.W.L.’s TBR would work for this challenge. That could be Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin or Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling or really any of the other books I want to read this month.
Read A Book Set Somewhere You Wish You Could Go
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling. It’s a given that I’d love to go to Hogwarts as I’m sure anyone who has read this series wants to also. I’m also reading this for the O.W.L.’s
Read A Book That Will Make You Smile
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. I’ve already read this book, so I know it’ll make me smile when I read it. Plus it’s on my TBR for the O.W.L.’s.
So there’s the Stay Home Reading Rush book tag. If you want to do this then you can. If you’re not sure if you’re participating in this round of the reading rush then you can skip the last question.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Happy reading!
