I'm very excited to be taking part in the Believe In The Impossible Readathon organised by Gavin Hetherington and running from the 1st to the 30th November. This readathon appealed to me because it allows me to lose myself in the middle grade books I love to read.
If you would like to know more or even take part yourself, please click here.
In order to complete the readathon you only have to read four books out of the ten categories given, but you can also read all ten categories along with the group read, which I've chosen to do. I'm still waiting for Frostheart by Jamie Littler, which is the group read, to arrive, but I have all the books i need for the other categories to be getting on with.
I'm normally pretty rubbish at completing reading challenges but I couldn't resist giving this one a go, especially as I had so many books on my TBR list that fitted in with it.
So here are the ten categories and the books that I've chosen to fulfil them.
1) Read a book featuring magic - A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison
2) Read a book featuring myths and legends - The Dragon in the Library by Louie Stowell
3) Read a book featuring real world issues - Pig-Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman
4) Read a book set in the past - The Somerset Tsunami by Emma Carroll
5) Read a book with a strong sense of friendship - Clifftoppers - the Fire Bay Adventure by Fleur Hitchcock
6) Read a creepy or atmospheric book - The House of Penhallow Hall - The Moonlight Statue by Holly Webb
7) Read a seasonal book - The Way Past Winter by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
8) Read a book featuring an animal character - The Girl Who Stole an Elephant by Nizrana Farook
9) Read a children's classic - The Children of Green Knowe by Lucy Boston
10) Re-read your personal childhood favourite - Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh
There are some events linked to the readathon through out the month too.
I hope you follow and cheer me on through my journey. If you decide to take part too, let me know.
