Yes, I have discovered yet another read-a-thon! Alphabethon is totally unique in that each round focuses on reading books based on a different letter, with this, the third round, being C. Round three starts tomorrow, July 31, and runs through Sunday, August 6.
I’m so thrilled this particular read-a-thon won’t interfere with the seemingly hundreds of others in which I’m participating in August!
Here’s a breakdown of the challenge guidelines:
- You can choose book titles beginning with the round’s letter – C
- You can also pick books whose authors’ last names begin with C
- You can even pick books with authors whose first names begin with C
- There are some read-a-thon challenges within the challenge:
- Read a book with three Cs [title, author’s first and last name]
- Read a book with a main character whose name begins with C
- Read a book with a C setting
- Read a book with something beginning with the letter C on either the front or back cover
- Read a book in a spot beginning with C, other than your couch!
- Read a book with a page count over 400
- Read a book with a page count under 200
- There will also be reading sprints held through Twitter during the challenge week!
I’ve opted to read books I already have, naturally! I’m not going to be overly ambitious this week with my reading list, as I do have to work and all that jazz. But, here is what I’m planning to tackle for the challenge:
- Click’d by Tamara Ireland Stone [this choice fits perfectly with the #ARCAugust challenge I’m doing!]
- Creepy Susie and 13 Other Tales for Troubled Children by Angus Oblong [this one coincides with the Summer TBR Wipeout challenge I’m doing]
- The Secrets of My Life: A History by Caitlyn Jenner [this pick also coincides with the Summer TBR Wipeout challenge]
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare [this one works with a few mini challenges!]
And that is all! Like I’ve said in pretty much every other reading challenge post I’ve written thus far, I’m terrible at finishing challenges; therefore, I think this list should work out nicely!
