The Reading Rush is a readathon that I look forward to participating in every year. It’s such a fun readathon with reading challenges, instagram challenges and twitter sprints. This year it runs from 20th July to the 26th.
Loveless by Alice Oseman
The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum
I Hear The Sunspot by Yuki Fumino
Storm Cursed (Mercy Thompson #11) by Patricia Briggs
The Reading Rush also has reading challenges that you can do if you want, usually I don’t actively do these but sometimes the books I read will fulfil a challenge. The Weight of the Stars will count for this years challenge of read a book that matches your birthstone (aquamarine), read a book that starts with ‘The’ and most of the books on my tbr fulfil the challenge of read a book that takes place on a different continent than where you live.
So that’s my tbr for the Reading Rush 2020. I’ll be posting updates on my twitter (KylasLibrary) and I’ll most likely be trying to do the instagram challenges (kylaslibrary), so be sure to follow me on both.
Are you participating in the Reading Rush? If so, what books are on your tbr?
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (which is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) topic is: Books on My Summer 2020 TBR. I really enjoy making seasonal TBR lists even though most times I don’t get around to all the books I’ve planned which was why I was surprised to see that I did complete nearly all of the books on my Spring TBR list so hopefully I can keep that up for the summer.
• Jade City by Fonda Lee
• Slay by Brittney Morris
• Seafire by Natalie C. Parker
• Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle #3) by Jay Kristoff
• With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
• Pet by Akwaeke Emezi
• Reborn Yesterday by Tessa Bailey
• Lost Talismans and a Tequila (The Guild Codex: Spellbound #7) by Annette Marie
• Cinderella Is Dead by Kalynn Bayron
• The Falling in Love Montage by Ciara Smyth
What books are you planning on reading this summer?
I participated in the Easter Readathon last year and really enjoyed it so I was very excited when I heard it was happening again this year. It starts on Friday 10th April and runs to Monday 13th April and is created/hosted by Kate from ReadingThroughInfinity, you can check out more of the details about the readathon here. The readathon starts tomorrow so this TBR is going up a little last minute but I’m still very much excited for it.
The Golden Sheep vol 2 by Kaori Ozaki
Druid Vices and a Vodka (The Guild Codex: Spellbound #6) by Annette Marie
A Throne of Swans by Elizabeth and Katherine Corr
The reading challenges for this readathon are:
1) Read a book that gives you spring vibes
2) Read a book about new beginnings
3) Read a book that’s under 250 pages
4) Read a book with yellow or green on the cover
5) Read a book involving family/friends
You don’t have to do the reading challenges but I decided to do them because I noticed that The Golden Sheep vol 2 fits nearly all the challenges. This manga is under 250 pages and has yellow and green on the cover. Even though I’m onto the second volume, the first volume was about the main character moving back to her old hometown (like a new beginning) and reuniting with old friends after a lot of years. The only challenge I’m not sure about is spring vibes because I don’t know if the second volume takes place in spring but the colours on the cover have kind of spring vibes so I’m counting it anyway, haha. So yes I somehow managed to fit all the challenges around the one manga volume I know I’ll definitely read. I’ll be updating my progress on the readathon on my Twitter (KylasLibrary) so be sure to follow me there.

There is so many new releases that I’m so excited about that sometimes I forget about some of the books that have already been out for years that sound equally as exciting. Here is a short list of some of the backlist books I want to read in 2020.
Signal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – I’m interested in all of Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s books because they all sound amazing and from vastly different genres. Signal to Noise would be my first book by her and I hope I love it so I can read her other books and love them too.
Renegades by Marissa Meyer – This book has been on so many of my seasonal tbr lists but I still haven’t read it yet, I’m definitely going to read it this year.
Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse book 1) by James S.A Corey – I’ve recently been wanting to watch The Expanse tv series but I didn’t even realise it was based on a book until recently (I have heard of the book before but I just didn’t realise it was the book the show was based on) so now I really want to read the series before starting the show.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury – I loved the Sorrow duology by Melinda Salisbury so I really want to read more by this author.
Skinwalker by Faith Hunter – I love reading adult urban fantasy series, I’ve read the Kate Daniels, Mercy Thompson and Night Huntress series and I’ve always seen this series on similar lists as those books.
Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone – I loved This Is How You Lose the Time War and I’d really like to try some of the authors other works.
