The #cramathon has come around once again and we’re going to try and participate! Our goal for December overall was to read 20 books, and if we have to read 7 in a week that’ll definitely help. We’ve also been stuck reading mostly for our classes next semester and working on our essays, so it feels like a long time since we’ve read for pleasure – and we deserve a break! As per usual, there are seven challenges, the last one being to read 7 books and we’ve created a TBR that will hopefully complete all of them!
If you’re interested in joining in with the #cramathon – which aims to have you read the smallest/easiest books on your TBR so you can reach your Goodreads goal – then you should check out the Twitter!
1. Read a book under 200 pages
Girls in Love by Jacqueline Wilson – Over the summer we started a project where we wanted to read more Middle Grade, and we started to churn our way through all of the old JW books we had, whilst also buying the ones we didn’t have from charity shops. Then we stopped because we were going to back to uni and couldn’t bring them all with us, so we’re really pumped to get back to it! (Maybe by the end of 2017 we will have read her entire collection!)
2. Read 2 books in 24 hours
7 Days by Eve Ainsworth & Girl Online: On Tour by Zoë Sugg – that’s 584 pages!
P.S. I Like You by Kasie West & Nerve by Jeanne Ryan – and that’s 592 pages!
3. Read a book set in a different country than where you live
She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick – Maddie picked this one up from the library because Sedgwick was an author featured in the I’ll Be Home For Christmas anthology we wanted to read more of his stuff!
Silver Stars by Michael Grant – I’m already 15% through this one, but hopefully I’ll finish it during the readathon so I can count it towards this goal!
4. Read a book you’ve been putting off/have been meaning to read forever
Winter by Marissa Meyer – I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish this one, but I can at least start it, and if I somehow can finish it then that’ll just be a bonus!
Vendetta by Catherine Doyle – Maddie has had this on her TBR forever and it was one of her Top 5 books to read before the end of the year, so two birds, one stone!
5. Read a book with pictures
We’re going to double up a challenge with this one and said any Jacqueline Wilson book we manage to read in this period!
6. Read a graphic novel
Giant Days Vol. 3 – This graphic novel series is one of our favourites!
Gotham Academy: Yearbook – We found out about this series quite recently but have already whipped through the first two volumes and the third has just been released, so we need to be caught up!
7. Read 7 books
