Sunathon TBR

Can you believe that it is already half way through July? This year is going way too fast. However, the year going fast does mean that exciting things are creeping up on the horizon & one of the things that I am most excited about is Sunathon.

Sunathon is a readathon created by the lovely Emma. It’s a no pressure, fun readathon that is taking place from July 21st to July 27th. I am really excited to be taking part, and am hoping (fingers crossed) to reach my CampNaNo word count goal by then so that I can fully immerse myself in the reading. You can find more about Sunathon by clicking here.

So onwards with my TBR. If you watched my latest YouTube video – click here – shameless plug I know 😉 – you’ll know that I was aiming to read quite a few books in July. For some unknown reason (CAFFEINE) I’ve already read:

1) The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

2) The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

3) The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

4) The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

5) Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness.

So I really only have A Clash of Kings & I Capture the Castle to go. I’ve being thinking about DNF-ing A Clash of Kings – I’m finding it really hard to connect to the characters & the story. However, I really, really want to finish I Capture the Castle before I go on holiday.

I have SO many books in my TBR that I am kind of desperate to read, but the ones I’m really feeling are The Phantom Tollbooth (which I have never read & It’s meant to be a classic!) & The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet which looks like a tonne of fun. So I am pretty certain at the moment that my TBR for Sunathon will be:

1) I Capture the Castle

2) The Phantom Tollbooth and

3) The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet

*I may add more books depending on how reading crazy I am feeling 🙂

So that is it for today’s post. I am sorry I haven’t been more active on this blog lately, but to be quite honest I haven’t been that active on YouTube/Twitter either – CampNaNoWriMo is currently taking over my life & speaking of that – I should be doing it right now!!

Are any of you guys taking part in Sunathon? What is your TBR looking like?

  1. The Sunathon sounds like so much fun! I’d love to take part, a week full of reading sounds like the loveliest thing right now 🙂
    I love I Capture The Castle, it has been my favourite book since I read it when I was thirteen and have re-read it countless times since then. It’s beautiful, and the perfect summer read. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, it sounds wonderful!
    Good luck with your TBR Laura, and with CampNaNo! I hope you enjoy your books 🙂
    Love, Ellie x

    1. Thank you so much Ellie! I am loving I Capture The Castle – so many people have told me how much reading it has changed their life & I can definitely see why! Ahh I am so excited for a week of just reading – I’m hoping to have finished my NaNo by then so I can soley focus on the books! 🙂

  2. I’m participating in #Sunathon too 🙂 Keeping my TBR small and less ambitious, hahaha.
    I’ve recently read The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet and loved it. Hope you enjoy reading it!
