HI! How’s it goin’? I’m here today to talk to you about BOOKTUBE-A-THON! I’ve never done a readathon before and I wasn’t planning on doing this one, but between all of the videos going around of everyone’s TBRs and specifically Nuša from Whispers of Thoughts’ TBR, I decided I would give it a go. Literally their first two paragraphs describe me right now!
So you may be asking your self what is BookTubeAThon? Well I have an answer for you! BookTubeAThon is a week long readathon that is hosted by Ariel Bissett, during which the Booktube community (also including bookstagram, book blogs, and anyone else who wants to participate!) tries to read as many books as possible! This year’s readathon will be taking place on July 24-30! There’s also video, instagram, and reading challenges all throughout the week (and there’s even a giveaway at the end!)! If you would like to find more information, there is a video here, on the BookTubeAThon YouTube channel!
NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT MY TBR! When I was planning, I decided that realistically there is a very small chance of me actually reading seven books in a week. SOOO, I decided that I would shake things up and choose a smaller amount of books to complete the first six challenges. I ended up choosing to read three books for sure during the readathon, that way I could double up on challenges and have an actual chance at completing them. Plus all these books were already on my TBR for this summer! Without further ado let’s jump into my BookTubeAThon 2017 TBR!
1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
The first book on my TBR is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, and the challenges that this book will complete are a book with a person on the cover and read about a character that is very different than you!
2. Fairest by Marissa Meyer
The next book on my TBR is Fairest by Marissa Meyer. The challenges I chose to complete with this book are finish a book in one day and finish a book completely outdoors!
3. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
And the last book that is definitely on my TBR is Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo! The last challenges that I’ll try to complete are read a hyped book and Read a book you bought because of the cover!
AND THE SEVENTH CHALLENGE IS…
To read seven books! This one I’m counting as a sort of bonus challenge because I know there is probably no way I can read seven books in a week, but I can still try! If I finish the first three books on my TBR, I have a couple more books lined up (I’ll try to put together a BookTubeAThon wrap-up type thing, so if I get to any of these books you’ll find out when that goes up!).
So are you going to be participating in BookTubeAThon this year? What’s your TBR like?
Until Next Time,
