For the week of May 19-25, I am currently participating in the 2020 Plug and Readathon. This challenge involves reading your selections in digital format (ebook, audiobook or online). The prompts to fulfill this challenge are to:
- Check out your local library’s digital loan collection
- Try a new author
- Read something you’ve always meant to read or put down and haven’t picked back up
- Read a booktube/bookternet darling (something you’ve seen everywhere)
- Read something comforting (an old favorite or favorite genre)
- Try a webcomic
All of my selections for this week are fiction:
For the first three prompts, I am reading Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Actually, at the time of writing this post, I have just finished the book! It was an excellent read and I will be writing a full review in my next post.
For the fourth prompt, I will be reading Everything Inside by Edwidge Danticat. I have seen rave reviews of this book on Youtube and Instagram and I am looking forward to starting this collection of short stories this evening.
Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres, so for the fifth prompt, I will be reading Birds of a Feather by Jacqueline Winspear. It is set in the 1930’s and is book two in a mystery series.
The webcomic is something brand new to me, and after an online search, I found the webcomic Honey Dill by Canadian author Ryan Harby. This is a quirky, colorful and lighthearted comic strip which will nicely balance out my heavier fiction choices.
