So yesterday I decided to take part in the bi-annual BookTube-A-Thon!
You may be asking “what the hell is that?!” Basically, it is a week long readathon where there are certain challenges you can complete. This year there are seven challenges and it’s my first year participating in it!
I’m also vlogging the entire experience over on my YouTube channel so be sure to check that out when it goes live next week!
So without much more delay, here’s my TBR for the week.
Challenge One: Read a Book With a Person on the Cover
For this one I’ve gone with Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I believe that it is Will Herondale on the cover of this one. I am going to read all of the Infernal Devices books in this challenge so you’ll see them all listed below for two more of the questions!
Challenge Two: Read a Hyped Book
Challenge Three: Read a Book You Can Finish in a Day
I’m not sure this is much of a challenge for me! I’ve been known to read the entire Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is one day, all 800 pages of it. I still gave myself a short book for this though, and went with The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Currently I’m in the process of re-reading all of the Harry Potter books again and I adore this little companion to the series.
Challenge Four: Read a Book Entirely Outdoors
Here I went with Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. This is a beautiful poetry book and Rupi Kaur is one of my favourite poets. You’ll probably see one pop up on my Instagram captions every now and again!
Challenge Five: Read a Book You Bought Because of the Cover
For this one I’m going to be re-reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay. Again, as I said, I’m currently re-reading all of the Harry Potter books, so this ties in nicely with both the challenge and the re-read. Plus, how absolutely beautiful is this book cover? It has beautiful gold foiling in an intricate pattern with a little Niffler at the bottom and it is a beautiful deep navy colour.
Challenge Six: Read a Book with a Character That is Completely Different to You
Here I’ve gone with the third and final book in the Infernal Devices trilogy, Clockwork Princess. All of the characters in this book are quite different from me, as they are part of the supernatural world whereas I (very sadly) am not. They are also from London and Boston in the 1800s whereas I am Irish and living in the modern age.
Challenge Seven: Read 7 Books
For my seventh book of the challenge, I will either read Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Cal Newport, or Selected Poems by Rudyard Kipling. I think I’ll decide later on in the week which one I eventually go for.
So that is going to be my TBR for this year’s BookTube-A-Thon! Be sure to check out my vlog at the end of the week and happy reading!
