Reading challenges

#DCGReadathon TBR for December!

Im so excited to be involved in the “Disney Channel Games Readathon” reading challenge! Are you doing the challenge? if not, why not? It doesn’t start until 6th December so there is still time to register and choose a team! (I am biased but team blue is the best and will win).

Info can be found on Instagram @dcgreadathon for anyone interested 🙂

The challenge runs from the 6th December until the 20th December- a perfect activity to fill some winter holidays and tick those last minutes books off the list for 2020


The readathon consists of weekly book prompts as well as some super fun challenges! Everyone is allocated to one of four teams and the aim is to get the most points.


Here are the books I have picked for each of the weekly challenges:


Week 1: Alphabet Goop

Challenge: Use a random letter generator to determine what your book title must start with. I got B.

Selected title: The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart.

This had been on my list on Goodreads forever so I figured this was a good a time as any to give it a read.


Week 2: Simon Says

Challenge: Select a title that had been recommended by multiple people.

Selected title: The Bridge Kingdom by Danielle L. Jensen

@helenoferetz over on Instagram had originally recommended this book to me after we got to chatting fantasy (p.s. you should go follow her account, it’s a lot of fun!). After she recommended it I had three other people talk to me about it. So I had to pick it.


Week 3: Outrageous Obstacle Course

Challenge: Select a title with an action packed plot.

Selected title: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown

I have seen A Song of Wraiths and Ruin all over socials and I’ve wanted to read it for ages! The organisers of the readathon had provided some recommendations for this challenge and this was one of them.


Week 4: Egg Toss

Challenge: Buddy read or group read a book!

Selected title: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

I reached out in the group discord chat and @readwithsanne (Instagram) happily agreed to buddy read this title with me!


Week 5: Dunk Tank

Challenge: Select a title or cover with water, or a plot that has water as a central element.

Selected title: The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See

Just after I moved to Korea one of my old professors and now treasured friend suggested this book to me. Not only is it set on Jeju Island- a place I am really keen to explore-but the story also sounds wholesome and a nice change from my usual reads.


I am going to be posting reviews on my blog and uploading my challenges on Instagram (@redheadragereads) if you’re keen to follow along!

I would love to know what you would have picked for the challenges, let me know in the comments!
