TBR | Alphabethon [Feb 12-18]

I’m going to attempt (school sometimes gets in the way, yanno?) to participate in the fifth round of the Alphabethon, which runs from February 12-18. If you haven’t heard about this readathon, you can read the announcement post for this round here. Basically, there’s one really simple rule that you have to follow to participate: read books that start with the letter “E”.

Now, this gives you several options – you can read a book with a title starting with E (An Ember in the Ashes), one written by an author whose first name starts with E (Emily St. John Mandel), or one written by an author whose last name starts with E (Nomi Eve).

Or all three!
Just make sure you post a picture of one of your reads on Instagram or Twitter to enter in the readathon giveaway! (P.S., If you find a book with the title, author’s first name, and author’s last name all starting with the letter E, you can earn a second entry in the giveaway!)

There are also several challenges to complete during the readathon if you so choose, which will be detailed below.

So, I’ve compiled a list of possibilities for this week of reading. Ideally, I’ll have a different book for each of the first 6 challenges, but I have a few that can double up, just in case I run out of time. If you have any suggestions for books you’ve enjoyed that I could read for this readathon, please let me know.

Adoptable Pet of the Day: Clancy

C L A N C Y : adult. male. border collie mix.
al clancy
health information: Vaccinated. Neutered.
personality and compatibility: Clancy is very shy and may take a few months to get used to new surroundings. He is sweet and tends to respond quicker to females, though if enough effort is put in, he sounds like he would make a great companion dog regardless. He wouldn’t do well being walked in a busy neighborhood because of his fear of loud noises and busy roads, so quieter neighborhoods or rural areas are preferable – he has also managed to escape from his collars and harnesses while being walked, so a fenced yard is a requirement for adoption, and he must be in a home where he will be an indoor dog. He is house-trained and already knows how to use a doggie door, if you happen to have one.
