#Aprilathon TBR

The April Showers have hit Scotland full force so what better way to wait out the rain than to curl up with a few books and attempt yet another readathon! (O.K., O.K. It rains a lot in Scotland but my excuse still stands)

I am a little late in posting as I jumped straight into reading for both #Aprilathon and the O.W.Ls readathon, due to the holiday Monday here in the UK.

The #Aprilathon started on the 2nd and will run through to the 8th. It is a beautifully low-key readathon that is the brainchild of April at Aprilius Maximus.

The readathon has six challenges and allows you to double/triple/quadruple up on them all however you wish.


The Challenges

Read a book that you acquired recently

Read a book with a beautiful cover

Read a book you’ve been meaning to read for ages

Read a book with your favourite colour on the cover

Read a hyped book or a book that has been recommended to you

Read a book that you’re excited to read


My TBR

My TBR for #Aprilathon does overlap with my O.W.Ls TBR as I am trying not to be over ambitious and I already have 12 books on this months TBR, hopefully this readathon will help me pass a few of my O.W.Ls and start the month off well.

Truly Devious – Maureen Johnson

I started a new job last month and therefore after over a decade of being a student (I got my BSc, MSc and finally finished my PhD in October! Yes I am still boasting about being Dr. Fi, it has been a long hard road), I am finally earning grown-up wages and of course I Treated myself to some lovely new books. These are just a couple of my haul!

I have to admit I have already started this. I got 80 pages into the digital version from the library before I just had to buy it. It is beautiful so far and I can’t wait to continue.

All of the above could work for this category. I am so excited to finish all of these and explore the world contained in them.


Are you joining in on the #Aprilathon?

Have you read any of these books? I would love to discuss them with everyone.

Remember, I will be updating my reading on my Goodreads and chatting over on  Twitter.
