Epic Reads Reading Decathlon

Hey guys!
Today I will be sharing with you something called the Epic Reads Reading Decathlon.
So if you do not know what Epic Reads it (I would be surprised) then I will tell you.
Epic Reads is a division of HarperCollins that deals with YA books. They have a YouTube Channel which is great (I highly suggest going back and watching the old Tea Times) They also have their website which is really cool and they update regularly. You can just go to google and type in Epic Reads and it should show up. THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!! But so back to the Decathlon. So they tweeted just a little while ago about something called the Reading Decathlon. So in ten days, you try to read ten books. I would like to participate in this book. Here is the photo that they posted on twitter.
I hope that you guys are participating!

So here are the books that I will try to be reading for the reading decathlon. 
But since I only have like 4 books left on my TBR I will just put on 6 rereads on this list that I just have been wanting to reread lately or the next book in the series is coming out or I just want to read the book.

1. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

I would like to finish this book in the 10 days. 

2. Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton

I am excited to read this book, it has been on my TBR forever and I just randomly got it when I was at B&N. So I am very excited to read this book

As you guys know, I love this book and I am really excited to be reading it again because I absolutely love it so much!

6. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Yes, I will be rereading this book because it just makes me happy and reminds me from when I was young and it was the very first YA book that I ever read (because I was in the fourth grade) so it brings back all of the feels and it is really easy for me to read because I have read it many times. 

7. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult

As you guys may know, I LOVED this book and I read it within a day and I have been meaning to reread this for a little while because it just makes me so happy!

Since the next book in the series is out and I have been meaning to get it then I am going to be read this one again!

9. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adieh

Again, the next book in the series is out and I have yet to read it so I am wanting to read this book before I get my hands on the next book so I am hoping to read this one in a day.

10. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

This book is amazing and since the next book is coming out soon then I want to read this book so  have it fresh in my mind when I read the next one. I am so excited to read this again!!!

I don't know if I am able to do this because actually, the next 10 day will be super busy for me so maybe I will be doing this later or something, I don't know when I will actually do it but I am very excited!!!!!!


So those were the books that I will be trying to do in the reading decathlon!
