Hello people of the internet and welcome to a challenge I’m going to participate in!
I swore that I’d not do challenges in any possibly future, but since it’s a Readathon, technically I’m not breaking any of my own set rules.
This Easter Readathon is created by my fellow bookblogger Kate from Reading Through Infinity and I’d suggest to read her Easter Readathon blogpost and follow her blog! She’s also doing a little Giveaway for those people who need more motivation to read.
How it works
- The Easter Readathon will be held from Friday, 19th to Monday 22nd of April, 2019.
- Use the hashtag #EasterReadathon on any Social Media platform (Twitter is preferred, but I guess any exposure is fine)
- Read as much as possible!
There’s a challenge included!
Oh yes, it’s not just a challenge because I’ve got to read books I keep pushing away, but because there are goals to reach [if you want to participate in the Giveaway that Kate is holding. Or not, then it’s just a good old challenge for you].
You can read one book per challenge or combine challenges. For example, I’m going to read Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, which would cross off “Read a Graphic Novel that’s been on your TBR for ages“. I’m going to read Awake the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins, which would cross off “Read a book by a new-to-you author“. I don’t have books that would cross off multiple challenges, but you get the point.
Here’s my To-Be-Read book list
The books I’ve chosen are ones which I’m currently reading but I don’t find proper time or motivation to continue or even finish them.
- Awake the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins
- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Awake the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins is a motivational book with the goal to a positive mindset and endless energy. I got to know the author by watching his Netflix documentary I Am Not Your Guru. Sadly, the book feels like it’s repeating itself over and over. The pacing seems off, the font is super small and the line spacing is too narrow for a nice reading flow, which makes it harder for me wanting to continue this book. But I really want to finish it.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a comic series which started in 2014. It is about Sabrina Spellman, a teenage witch who is living with her two aunts, back in 1960. This comic series is a darker take on the original comics, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which started in 1971, after Sabrina first appeared in an Archie comic back in October 1962.
Since I’m currently watching the Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which is based on the same-called comics, I wonder how and if they’ll differ from the show. So far I have finished the first one, but stayed curious enough for the following issues.
Last but not least…
This has been my contribution for Kate’s Easter Readathon. It sure would be fun if whoever is reading this is going to participate as well. I’m for sure going to have fun reading.
