Reading Double: TBR & Sprint Times

It’s almost time for our readathon to start! We’ve been planning and anticipating this for weeks, so it’s so exciting to think that tomorrow it’ll actually be happening. We’re so excited to share what we’re reading with everyone!

Bee and I have finally decided on what we’re each going to read, after having a few options lined up. With the readathon starting tomorrow and all, we just had to go with our hearts! We’ve both gone for two stand alones written by the same author, which also happen to be some of each other’s favourite books.

Bee will read…
‘Beautiful Broken Things’ & ‘A Quiet Kind of Thunder’ by Sara Barnard

Maddie will read…
‘This Song Will Save Your Life’ & ‘Tonight the Streets are Ours’ by Leila Sales

The best part is that both of our pairs work out at around the same word count, so we should be able to read at the same pace. Hopefully we like them as much as the other did!

On the readathon’s Twitter (@ReadingDouble), we’ll be hosting sprints throughout the day, all set to GMT. The schedule is as follows:

SATURDAY: 10am-12pm, 2-4pm, 8-9pm

SUNDAY: 10-11am, 3-5pm, 8-10pm

We hope you can join us for some of those times over the weekend, whether or not your taking part in the readathon, if you’re reading, we’d love to cheer you on!

ReadingDouble: Readathon Announcement! (24th-25th June)

Exciting news! In just two weeks, Bee and I are going to be hosting our very first readathon! It’s called Reading Double and takes place from 24th-25th June. 

To take part, all you have to do is read two books that share of common feature, for example, the books could be written by the same author, be part of the same series or genre, or have the same colour on the cover! Below is our announcement video:

We also put together a list of duologies that would work perfectly for the readathon if you want to check that out too! Maybe it’ll inspire your TBR if you want to take part.

We’ll be running reading sprints over on Twitter (@ReadingDouble) and if you want to take part, you can share your TBRs and reading progress using the hashtag #ReadingDouble across all social media.

We’re so excited to be doing something like this for the first time ever. Readathons are one of our favourite parts of the bookish community, and we’re beyond excited to host our own! Over the 23rd-26th June, we’ll be posting daily updates here on our blog too!
