My Reading Rush TBR (To Be Read)!

Hi everyone! The Reading Rush (previously known as booktubeathon) is a readathon running from 22nd-28th July 2019. There are a bunch of reading challenges and there are badges awarded for each challenge (and some extra criterion) that you can get on the website. Here are the books that I am planning on reading for The Reading Rush. They are all mangas because I am getting back into reading mangas and graphic novels (I will still be reading fiction books too) and as I will be busy during The Reading Rush, I felt that mangas were a perfect fit for me!

The challenges/badges and the books that I plan to read for them:

Read a book with purple on the cover:

A new manga from the creator of the acclaimed A Silent Voice (Kodansha Comics), featuring intimate, emotional drama and an epic story spanning time and space. A lonely boy wandering the Arctic regions of North America meets a wolf, and the two become fast friends, depending on each other to survive the harsh environment. But the boy has a history, and the wolf is more than meets the eye as well To Your Eternity is a totally unique and moving manga about death, life, reincarnation, and the nature of love.

Read a book in the same spot the whole time:

When the alien Mimics invade, Keiji Kiriya is just one of many recruits shoved into a suit of battle armor called a Jacket and sent out to kill. Keiji dies on the battlefield, only to be reborn each morning to fight and die again and again. On his fifth iteration, he gets a message from a mysterious ally - the female soldier known as the Full Metal B***h. Is she the key to Keiji's escape or his final death?

Read a book with over five words in the title:

Naofumi Iwatani, an uncharismatic Otaku who spends his days on games and manga, suddenly finds himself summoned to a parallel universe! He discovers he is one of four heroes equipped with legendary weapons and tasked with saving the world from its prophesied destruction. As the Shield Hero, the weakest of the heroes, all is not as it seems. Naofumi is soon alone, penniless, and betrayed. With no one to turn to, and nowhere to run, he is left with only his shield. Now, Naofumi must rise to become the legendary Shield Hero and save the world!

Read a 5 star book: I don't know which of my reads (if any) will be a 5 star, I am predicting that this classic manga will be but if not we will see which of my reads is a 5 star!

Naruto is a ninja-in-training with a need for attention, a knack for mischief, and sealed within him, a strange, formidable power. His antics amuse his instructor Kakashi and irritate his teammates, intense Sasuki and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure! In another world, ninja are the ultimate power - and in the village of Konohagakure live the stealthiest ninja in the world. But twelve years ago Konohagakure was attacked by a fearsome threat - a nine-tailed fox demon which claims the life of the Hokage, the village champion. Today, peace has returned, and a troublemaking orphan named Uzumaki Naruto is struggling to graduate from the Ninja Academy. His goal: to become the next Hokage. But unknown to Naruto and his classmates, within him is a terrifying force...

Read a book you meant to read last year:
  • All You Need Is Kill

Read a book with a non-human main character:

When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe. From New York Times bestselling writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina) and critically acclaimed artist Fiona Staples (Mystery Society, North 40), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in this sexy, subversive drama for adults. This specially priced volume collects the first six issues of the smash-hit series The Onion A.V. Club calls "the emotional epic Hollywood wishes it could make."

Read an author's first book:

Owly is a kind, yet lonely, little owl who's always on the lookout for new friends and adventure. The first graphic novel in the series contains two enchanting novellas, "The Way Home" & "The Bittersweet Summer," wherein Owly discovers the meaning of friendship, and that saying goodbye doesn't always mean forever.
