I remember five or six years ago, I used to join readathons and I was able to finish all my TBRs. Years later, I’m older, not wiser, and it takes me MONTHS to finish ONE book. I don’t know how I got here. 🤦♀️
It has only been a week ago when I last joined a readathon and failed epically. Now I’m back at it again and I’m hoping to finish these six books!
Manananggal – Read a book from two perspectives
I chose Replica by Lauren Oliver because it clearly has two perspectives. I don’t know much about it but I think one of them is running away from something? So it might be some kind of mystery too.
Kapre – Read the tallest book on your bookshelf
Berberoka – Read a book that has a body of water on the title or on the cover
Into the Water by Paula Hawkins nailed these two prompts (it can actually also be added to the Tiyanak prompt but I decided just to add in another book for that). It has been years since I last read one of her books. I heard mixed reviews of Into the Water but I guess I just want to dive into this novel without knowing too much.
Duwende – Read a mass market paperback
Tikbalang – Read a book with a land animal on the cover
For this prompt, I chose Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add this one but I think it is the only book I have with a land animal on the cover. It sounds different from what I’m used to reading so I’m willing to switch things up.
White Lady – Read a book with a white cover
I think I did great with this prompt. The cover is white and the title has GHOSTS in it. 😉 I remember grabbing this book when our team won in Bookworms Unite Year 4 almost two years ago but I still haven’t read it. 🤦♀️I’m still excited to read Invisible Ghosts by Robyn Schneider because she’s one of my favorite authors.
Tiyanak – Read a mystery book that you think will keep you guessing
Like I said earlier, I could have added this prompt to Into The Water but I decided to add in one of my childhood favorites, The Boxcar Children: The Mystery Ranch by Gertrude Chandler Warner. It’s not a big book so I’m thinking of reading this first to boost my confidence that I can actually finish my whole TBR for the readathon.
Bungisngis – Read a comedy book
I’m not sure if Simon is a comedy book but it seems like a fun read so I decided to go for it. People were loving this when it first came out years ago so even though I’m terribly late to the party, I hope I would love it too.
