Hello readers! I announced last month that I would be helping to host the Re-Readathon, a readathon dedicated entirely to re-reading, from March 10th through March 16th. There are seven different challenges for this readathon. If you want to participate, you can make use of the challenges, but you don’t have to. Re-read at your own pace and to your own liking. I will be trying to complete all 7 challenges, and I have designed my TBR so that there is one book for each challenge. We’ll see how my reading goes throughout the week, but I might have to double or even triple up on a few challenges.
Without further ado, here are the challenges and the books I am hoping to read:
A Game Changer
East by Edith Pattou
I’ve talked about this book quite a lot on my instagram, and even a couple times here. Before I read East, I wasn’t really into fantasy and I was overwhelmed by any book that was much longer than 200 pages. Then I read East based on a friend’s recommendation, and it opened up entire new worlds for me. The sequel to this came out last fall, and I have been dying to read it, but wanted to reread the first one first.
Give a Book a Second Chance
Like East, Ice is also a retelling of East of the Sun and West of the Moon. I love this fairytale, and I have loved several retellings of it, but I HATED this book. I can’t entirely remember all the reasons I hated it, so I’m going to give it another chance.
I remember reading this book right before starting high school. Ally Carter has always been one of my favorite authors for fun and funny, action-packed reads. I’m excited to go back to where it all began.
This challenge can be taken a few different ways. You can choose a book that isn’t well loved, is under-rated, or maybe just not that many people have heard of it. I first read Aurelia almost exactly 10 years ago. I remember loving it, but I have never met or talked to anyone else who has read it. It seems to be decently popular on Goodreads, but I think it’s still obscure enough to count as my unpopular book.
This is the fairytale retelling that everyone and their mom has read. I didn’t get around to reading Ella Enchanted until a couple years ago, but I liked it, so I want to do a quick re-read.
I have too many childhood favorites to count, but I like to go back to my Madeline stories every once in a while because I find it super comforting. I also wanted to throw in a super easy read.
If you’ve sensed a bit of a trend with the books I’m picking, that’s because I’m working on something that hopefully you’ll get to see soon. Since I’m re-reading for the readathon anyway, I thought I would use the opportunity to tackle some re-reads that I need to use for this project. Anyway, Geekerella is a great retelling of Cinderella. It’s super cute and nerdy and gives me so many squishy feelings. I read it for the first time last summer, and I’m pumped to read it again.
That’s it for my Re-Readathon TBR. Make sure to check back here on March 10th for the first day of the readathon, and check out my post about the readathon for more information on other hosts and giveaways. See you on March 10th, and until then, happy reading!
