Hello, bookish friends…
So The Readathon is here and it is time for me to complete the first challenge…
1/ Let a coin toss decide your first read.
Little Liar – Julia Gray or The Truth and Lies of Ella Black – Emily Barr
Both books are roughly the same amount of pages in length however Little liar seems like it may be a quicker read. Just my perception of it anyway. I picked these both up fairly recently and I tried to pick them up in the Biannual Bibliothon but I didn’t end up getting the time to complete the challenge these were for.
Little Liar was certainly a cover buy, I cannot get over how beautiful this book is. It is so vibrant and simple. However The Truth and Lies of Ella Black was a book that I had seen floating around for a while and I ended up picking up an uncorrected proof of the book pretty cheaply.
I had no expectations when going into this challenge and I wanted to read both of these books the same amount. So when I finally chose which book was heads and which was tails I was fine with the choice. Heads was Little Liar and tails was TTALOEB, the coin landed on Little Liar and I was pretty happy with the choice. I was worried that once I had flipped the coin I would have realised I wanted to read the other book more. However, that was not the case for me.
The readathon is from the 30th JULY until 5th AUGUST

As always, happy reading xxxx
