So I was really debating whether or not to participate in the Booktube-A-Thon this year which is from JULY 18TH – JULY 24TH. I wanted to do it last year while I was still an active booktuber but I was working at camp during that week. But even though I’m not a booktuber anymore, I’m a blogger, it still sounds super fun and a lot of people participate. It’s been a long time since I’ve done a readathon so I’m quite excited!
SO let’s get started!
It took me a few days to pick out my TBR but I decided to model it after all the awesome challenges as well as tried to pick books that I already had on my monthly TBR.
1/ Read a book with yellow on the cover
This one was pretty easy since I was already planning on reading it. I’ve heard so many good things that I hope I enjoy it.
2/ Read a book only after sunset
This one was also already on my TBR. But it’s gonna be weird to only be able to read it when it’s dark out. However, it’s not supposed to be a very scary book so I have that going for me. But who knows how fast I’ll finish it.
3/ Read a book you discovered through booktube
This was probably the hardest one to come up with because I’ve watched booktube for so long and have been on Goodreads for so long that now I just can’t remember where I got a recommendation and where I found a book. So I decided to pick this book but Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes really enjoyed it and I’ve been interested in Dahlia Adler’s books since I started following her on Twitter because she’s hilarious.
4/ Read a book by one of your favorite authors
Surprisingly this was another hard one for me. I actually had to make a physical list of my favorite authors because I say it and write it on this blog but I didn’t remember when it counted! There’s quite a few on that list but honestly, I just want to read this book and I’ll find any excuse to do it. Though Rick Riordan is one of my favorite authors, he knows his niche and he does it well.
5/ Read a book that is older than you
6/ Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptation
I decided to combine these two challenges because I got quite lucky when picking this book. The Giver was originally published in 1993 and I was born in 1994, so check! And I haven’t watched the movie version yet, so check again! I don’t know if I’ll get to it but it’d be interesting to read then watch.
7/ Read seven books
And the original BooktubeAThon challenge, I had to add two more books so I decided to put ones that I already have on my monthly TBR. The first is one of my favorite LGBTQ books of all time that I’ve wanted to re-read for a long time. It’s a really cute story that deals with LGBTQ themes and religion. Eve my mom loved it and I hope I’ll get to it. And the second, I mean, I’ve just heard awesome things about this book and the author so cross your fingers!
So that’s it for my TBR! Let me know if you’ve read any of the books on my list. Let me know if you’re also going to be participating in the BooktubeAThon! I can’t wait to get started! Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
