It’s that time of year again! The BookTube-A-Thon is approaching and I could not be more excited about it. As soon as the announcement video was posted on YouTube, I was eagerly awaiting the release of the reading challenges so I could start planning out my TBR.
Honestly, I’ve been disappointing myself with my reading this summer, even though it is the first summer of my life where I’m not working and have no big travel plans until the end of August. I mean what is wrong with me?!?! I have all the time in the world to read and I waste a lot of it bumming around on the internet 😛 Hopefully during the week of BookTube-A-Thon I’ll have that motivation to power-read through the week! So, here are the books that I am hoping to read!
- Read a book with a person on the cover: Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
- Read a hyped book: Because You Love To Hate Me by Ameriie (with authors and BookTubers)
- Finish a book in one day: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire OR The Encyclopaedia of Early Earth by Isabel Greenberg
- Read about a character that is very different from you: Ghachar Ghochar by Vivek Shanbhag
- Finish a book completely outdoors: Love Her Wild by Atticus
- Read a book you bought because of the cover: Note to Self by Connor Franta
- Read 7 books: Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel (the BookTube-A-Thon group read pick)
This year should go a lot better than last year’s BookTube-A-Thon because last year I was in the process of moving and I was working a full-time job. However, this summer we are settled and since I’m a teacher now, I get summers off (yay!) So the week of BookTube-A-Thon should be full of nothing but sunshine and reading 🙂 I’m super excited! I will let you know how everything went in a BookTube-A-Thon wrap up post that I will write once BTAT is all said and done 🙂
