Iโ€™m always up for a challenge, especially if it can help me catch up with my annual reading goals! ๐Ÿ˜… A few weeks ago @afroshereads told me about @thereadingrush and the wait seemed like forever. Time really flies because today marks the first day of the readathon! I was reminded by a few posts from others so I officially signed up then gathered a few picks to participate! I have from today through July 26 to read the following titles:
โ €
โ €
๐Ÿ“š Read a book matching the color of your birthstone – This Is Major: Notes on Diana Ross, Dark Girls, and Being Dope by Shayla Lawson (Amethyst) @harperperennial #gifted
โ €
โ  ๐Ÿ“š Read a book that starts with the word ‘the’ – The Black Godโ€™s Drums by P. Djรจlรญ Clark
โ €
