Soon soon soon soon soon. Very soon now.

If you don’t know what Currentathon is, check out my announcement post right here! Pssst there are challenges, a bingo, sprints and a star collecting game 😱

To satisfy the main challenge (pick one colour and find it in the cover of all the books you will be reading during the readathon)… πŸ₯ πŸ₯ πŸ₯ πŸ₯

The Deathless Girls

The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Currently on page 20 out of 272

I was lucky enough to get an arc of this beauty! I’m only at the very beginning but I’m liking it so far. It is a retelling of the brides of Dracula which surely intrigues me. I’m hoping to get much further into this during the readathon ✨

The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro

Currently on page 190 out of 256

I’m so far into this already that I hope I can use it for the ‘finish a book in one sitting’ bingo square 🀩 This edition is so pretty and I’m happy to report that I love it so far. Kazuo Ishiguro’s books have been on my TBR for a forever!

To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf

Currently on page 104 out of 209

GAH THIS BOOK. I have been reading it for 6 months now. You might have seen it in my August TBR, and the month before that, and the month before that πŸ™ˆ I just have to sit down and read it! Gosh it better happen this weekend! Also, this one doesn’t have yellow on the cover but it does have purple πŸ™ I’m hoping to use it for the complementary colour square!

The Equality Illusion by Kat Banyard

Currently on page 15 out of 320

I’m very excited about this book but I have been neglecting it. I started it 2 years ago, read 15 pages and put it down for no reason. Now Currentathon will kick my butt and make me finally read it. The yellowness of the cover is slightly debatable but I think that blonde hair is definitely on the yellow spectrum!

The Secret Garden [Kindle in Motion] by [Hodgson Burnett, Frances]

The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett

Currently on page 170 out of 331

I have a beautiful kindle in motion e-book in which flowers grow from the pages and birds fly around the text. And you know what I have done instead of reading it? I read half and then shelved it as a ‘forever read’ in Goodreads 2.5 years ago πŸ˜‚ I might honestly have to back up a bit to understand what is happening in the plot. I also have the audiobook through LibriVox!

🌈 #Currentathon starts tomorrow! I'm super excited, and here's my TBR 😁 . πŸ’• See my highlight if you want to fins out what's up! . ✨ The main challenge is to pick a colour and find it in the cover of all the books I'll be reading.

My edition of this has yellow writing and a yellow clock on the cover. . πŸ’› The Equality Illusion by Kat Banghart: although I'm incredibly excited to read it, I have been neglecting it for so long! I started it like 2 years ago, read 15pgs and for some reason put it down πŸ˜… Currentathon for the save! I'm kind of pushing the yellowness here – the blonde hair is kind of yellowish right? And also the trophy's top is golden ✨ . πŸ’› The deathless girls by Krian Hargrave: I have only read about 10% of this and I'm hoping to get way further into this during the readathon weekend! Although the cover is bw on the kindle, it has some yellow here if I look at it on my computer πŸ‘€ . πŸ’› To the lighthouse by Virginia Woolf: THIS. BOOK. I have been reading it for 6 months.

pssst I took this IG TBR picture this morning and just decided to add the Secret Garden in the mix, ooops

I didn’t realise that I’m so bad with classics! Seriously I’ll turn into a cultured lady after having devoured these 3 classics and 1 nonfiction this weekend (or I’ll just end up finishing The Deathless Girls and nothing else because YA Fantasy is fun πŸ˜‚ that would be on brand!).

Are you taking part this weekend? What is your TBR like?

I hope you’ll join the readathon but also the reading sprints on twitter @Currentathon ! I’ll be running quite a few too, I’m preeetty nervous-excited about that.

  1. What a great readathon! I hadn’t heard of it and unfortunately I think I’m too late to join but I ADORE the idea of picking a colour and finding it in all books. I hope you enjoy the readathon and The Deathless girls. That looks like a really good book πŸ™‚
