My wonderful friend Kate started the Easter Readathon last year, which is quite simply four days of pure reading bliss. This year she’s added some extra challenges and reading sprints on twitter. For the full announcement post, click here!

The bingo board for Easter Readathon

Thanks to my heavy April reading slump, I’m going to be attempting to finish some books rather than start new ones – I’m not sure how well I’ll succeed at even that but let’s give it a go.

The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

LGBTQIAP+ | New-to-me | Animal or pet

I am 67% through this book and I’m really enjoying it, but due to life it’s taking me a long time. Christine often talks about this book as being ‘disaster bis’ and I am so damn down with this. As a debut author, Christine is new-to-me, and one of the characters has a cat so for my first read I’m going to be smashing my way through some prompts.

Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Maria Griffin

LGBTQIAP+ | New-to-me | Animal or pet | Spring / Summer

This spooky read is really intriguing me so far with the 25% I’ve read. We’ve got some similar themes going on in terms of LGBT+, new-to-me and animals but as a bonus it’s also set in the summer! It’s a pretty quick read so hopefully once I get stuck back in, it’ll go pretty quick.

Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Maria Griffin

LGBTQIAP+ | New-to-me | Yellow cover

I read just one chapter of this before getting caught up in life and other books but this one has been one of my most anticipated reads. Again, Victoria is a debut and I need them queer-ass reads, but this cover is also blue and yellow so another challenge gets ticked off!

The Steel Prince Vol. I by V. E. Schwab

LGBTQIAP+ | Graphic novel | New beginning

I have honestly been crazy excited for this since the individual comics started coming out but I knew I couldn’t be buying all the individuals so I had to wait for the bind up. I’m making some assumptions in classing it as a queer read, but it’s ma girl Schwab so I’m at least 89% sure there’ll be some rep in there. It’s naturally a graphic novel and I’m classing it as a new beginning due to the fact that it’s a new start for the Shades of Magic world!

Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

LGBTQIAP+| New beginning

Finally, I have had this ARC for so long and the release date is creeping up on me so I have to get stuck in. I doubt I’ll finish it but hopefully getting started will help. I’ve been told this one is also queer (this is the most queer TBR I have ever written and I am so okay with that), and again a new beginning for Kaufman and Kristoff!

And there it is folks! I’ll have a reading thread over on twitter charting my progress and to be honest, I’m pretty proud of myself for ticking off seven out of eight challenges with this TBR! 

A sincere thanks again to Kate for hosting!
