I already posted about this in my June TBR (here).
But I wanted to do a separate post and update on how far I’ve gotten.

Let’s recap!

Reading Challenges:
1. Swap a book with a buddy (either use the google form linked above to request a buddy, find your own buddy online or in person)

2. Swap a book at a thrift store or library (donate a book and bring home another)

  • I went on a journey to three Little Free Libraries near me. I posted about the journey on Instagram if you want to see more. But I came back with The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. I have loved everything else that I read by him, so I’m excited to use this book to fulfill this challenge!

3. Read a book you swapped out for another book (one you set down because another book caught your interest)

  • Okay, so this is kind of controversial. But I’m setting down Crooked Kingdom to  read The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. I’m not giving up on Crooked Kingdom, I love the characters to much for that. I’m just not in a adventure fantasy mood. So bring on more contemporary reads!

4. Swap out format (if you normally read paperbacks, listen to an audiobook.)

  • I usually read Paperbacks/Hardcovers. So I will be switching to an e-book to read  Ruckus by JL Shen!

5. Swap out genre (get out of your comfort zone!)

  • I’m going to be reading the Manga, Fruit Baskets, that Amanda sends me. Which is also a genre that I’ve never read. But I’m excited to try it out!

What I’ve read so Far!

  • 15% of the way into Ruckus by JL Shen! Loving it so far.
  • 85 pages into Fruits Baskets! Which I’m liking, but still getting the hang of reading backwards.
  • Haven’t started Upside of Unrequited
  • Haven’t started The Red Pyramid

Those are the four books that I plan to read this week during the readthon!
It’s not to late to join in!
I will update you at the end of everything with a wrap up!

Hope you enjoyed this post!
Thanks for Reading!
