I’m always up for a challenge, especially if it can help me catch up with my annual reading goals! πŸ˜… A few weeks ago @afroshereads told me about @thereadingrush and the wait seemed like forever. Time really flies because today marks the first day of the readathon! I was reminded by a few posts from others so I officially signed up then gathered a few picks to participate! I have from today through July 26 to read the following titles:
β €
β €
πŸ“š Read a book matching the color of your birthstone – This Is Major: Notes on Diana Ross, Dark Girls, and Being Dope by Shayla Lawson (Amethyst) @harperperennial #gifted
β €
⁠ πŸ“š Read a book that starts with the word ‘the’ – The Black God’s Drums by P. DjΓ¨lΓ­ Clark
β €
⁠ πŸ“š Read a book that inspired a movie you’ve seen – For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf by Ntozake Shange (Star studded cast πŸ™ŒπŸΎ Whew!)
β €

β €
πŸ“š Read a book completely not inside your house – The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story by Marie Kondo ⁠(Perhaps reading on the porch will stop the urge to trash everything for an unobtainable minimalist lifestyle πŸ˜….)
