I am sure you all have heard of Booktube-A-Thon and seen a lot of announcement videos about it on YouTube. Obviously, I don’t make YouTube videos, but I would love to join the reading challenges.
Booktube-A-Thon will start on the 24th and end on the 30th of July, and even though I will have my usual work schedule, I have faith in my reading abilities to complete all of the challenges (maybe except the last one…).
So here is my TBR for this year’s Booktube-A-Thon!
READING CHALLENGE #1 – Read a book with a person on the cover.
For this one I am going with an ARC that I am very excited about – «Things a Bright Girl Can Do» by Sally Nicholls. It is coming out on the 7th of September and after seeing a lot of positive feedback about this book, it seems like a perfect read for a Read-a-thon!
READING CHALLENGE #2 – Read a hyped book.
I will be finally reading «Illuminae» by Amy Kauffman and Jay Kristoff. Written through e-mails, reports and messages, it should be a fairly quick read!
READING CHALLENGE #3 – Finish a book in one day.
A comic book would be a perfect choice for this one, but unfortunately I do not own any unread comics. So I’ve been browsing through my shelves (real and virtual) looking for a short book, and I picked two books for this challenge, depending on which will be faster to go through (See challenge #5) : «Pax» by Sara Pennypacker or (another ARC) «The Ninth Circle» by C.A. Harland.
READING CHALLENGE #4 – Read about a character that is different from you.
Yet another ARC (nothing wrong with having fun and get those ARCs out of the way!) «Sing. Unburied. Sing» by Jesmyn Ward. Set in a farm on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, the characters could not be any more different from me and I am excited to discover their story!
READING CHALLENGE #5 – Finish a book completely outside.
For this challenge I will be using one of the books from the third challenge and try to read it all while sitting on the terrace.
READING CHALLENGE #6 – Read a book you bought because of the cover.
I feel like «Pax» by Sara Pennypacker is also a good fit for this challenge. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait to take pictures for my Instagram featuring this book.
READING CHALLENGE #7 – Read 7 books!
This one will be very difficult to achieve, as I will be working most of the days and only have evenings available for reading, but if I manage to read all the books I mentioned above, I will try to get this challenge done as well.
I am very excited for the reading week and, fingers crossed, I will be able to complete as many challenges as possible!
