#RAINBOWREADATHON: A Colorful, New Reading Challenge

Yes, here comes yet another readathon I must join up on! Rainbow Read-A-Thon!

As you've probably assumed, Rainbow Read-A-Ton is a week-long color based marathon of reading, created by 4TeenLiars, Chloe from @baudelairebooks,, with co-hosts Alexandra from thehufflepuffnerdete, 

Each day this week will bring a new blog challenge, as well as an Instagram challenge.

Day 1 Blog Challenge:

1. Which book are you most excited to read as part of the readathon?
I'm reading HOMEGOING by Ya'a Gyasi from my last two readathons, so I'll be happy to finish that and talk about it more. 

2. Which colour was the most difficult for you to find a book for?

I couldn't find orange and blue books in my TBR. Those colors were hard to find. 

3. What's your favourite colour on books and why?
My favorite color is purple, so anything that uses purple and mixes it with different pastel colors is always beautiful. 

4. Which fictional world would you go to if you had the choice?
I'd probably go visit a castle or some mythical, magical world where it's more developed and technological than this one lol. 

5. Which book cover do you like the most out of the books you're reading for the readathon?
I'm most excited to get into this cover of Starfish by

6. Who is your favourite fictional character?
It's a tie between Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) and Bella Swan (Twilight). Girl power!!

7. What is your favourite place to read in summer?
My favorite place to read in the summer is somewhere inside, but near the window where I can see the scenery and soak up the energy from outside. Like a patio or beach area. 

8. Do you think characters should always have a specified sexuality?
It's hard to say, considering I've only read straight/heterosexual characters who were definitive in their sexualities. But I'm learning to find accurate representation books of the LGBT community, so I think it's important for people to realize how fluid sexuality is. There's so much more about sex and gender that isn't taught in Health class in high school, or even college/university. It's important not to label these characters when they don't want to be. 

9. What book made you cry the most?

I haven't read anything this year that's made me cry (yet), but last year I'd read Under My Skin by Laura Diamond, and that made me cry a lot. Books about mental illness, chronic pain and depression tend to make me feel the most. 

10. What is your favourite LGBT+ book?

I'd read Terrance by Alice Rachel, and I thought it was a really good read. How would you feel if being gay --- not even openly, but even just looking at someone of the same sex --- was illegal? 

11. What book have you read this year about a character of a different nationality to you?

I've mostly read characters who were white/American all my life. But earlier this year, I'd read a book with a Mexican lesbian who played with androgyny in Santa Muerte by Lucina Stone.  I did a review on it back in March, and while I really didn't like it, I appreciated the national diversity it had brought on.
