WHIRTY Readathon

I haven’t taken part in this readathon before but I was just asking this question to myself when I was writing my June TBR. This readathon is based around the question ‘Why Haven’t I Read That Yet?’.

This readathon runs from the 17th-23rd and there are three challenges to this readathon. This means only three books but since one of those books has a thousand pages in it, I think I’ll be kept busy over the week.

Challenges

  • Read a book that has been on your shelf for at least a year
  • Read a book you received as a gift but haven’t read yet
  • Read the biggest book on your shelf

Buzzwordathon Round 4

I don’t know why I named the round in the title of this because I’ve never taken part in this readathon, despite one of my favourite Booktubers hosting it.

This readathon is all about reading books with the buzz word in the title and this round the word is ‘you’. I don’t have nearly as many books with this word in as I thought I would.

 

The twitter is here and this round runs from the 12th to the 18th June.

Daisy Jones and the Six

Daisy Jones & The SixEVERYONE KNOWS DAISY JONES AND THE SIX.

They sold out arenas from coast to coast.

Their music defined an era and every girl in America idolised Daisy.

But on July 12 1979, on the night of the final concert of the Aurora tour, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.

This is the whole story, right from the beginning: the sun-bleached streets, the grimy bars on the Sunset Strip, knowing Daisy’s moment was coming. Relive the euphoria of success and experience the terror that nothing will ever be as good again. Take the uppers so you can keep on believing, take the downers so you can sleep, eventually. Wonder who you are without the drugs or the music or the fans or the family that prop you up. Make decisions that will forever feel tough. Find beauty where you least expect it. Most of all, love like your life depends on it and believe in whatever it is you’re fighting for.

It’s a true story, though everyone remembers the truth differently.

June TBR

June is going to be a month where I don’t have a lot of work but I’m finishing up my Goodreads Upside Down Reading Challenge as well as look at ARCs I still have to read, so my TBR is going to be a little on the high side. I’m also taking part in Jazzy June, which will have a separate TBR.

(for anyone who gets the Fairyloot box and hasn’t received the May box yet, this post has spoilers for the book!)
