BookTube-A-Thon 2017 TBR!


Hey everyone! So, this is really impromptu on my part, but I’ve decided to participate in the BookTube-A-Thon!  I wasn’t going to, just for the fact that I didn’t really know when it was, and I’m not a booktuber, but after seeing so many other bloggers participating, and just the hype about it starting today in general, I decided “why not?!”  I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump these past few weeks, and I thought a readathon might be just the thing I need.

Okay, so in case you’re unaware of the readathon (kind of like I was), the BookTube-A-Thon, hosted by Ariel Bissett, runs from July 24th – July 30th.  The goal of the readathon is just to read as much as you possibly can within these seven days.  There are also challenges that you can use to guide your TBR if you want to!  The challenges are:

1. Read a book with a person on the cover.
2. Read a hyped book.
3. Finish a book in one day.
4. Read about a character that is very different from you.
5. Finish a book completely outdoors.
6. Read a book you bought because of the cover.
7. Read seven books.

Okay, on to my TBR!

Read a Book With a Person on the Cover.


I’m currently reading Second Chance Summer, but I’m still going to count it for the readathon!  I only have a little under 200 pages left, so I hope to finish this one up quickly.

Read a Hyped Book.


Everyone is obsessed with all of Colleen Hoover’s books.  I read Maybe Someday by her last year, and I wasn’t super impressed, but I’ve decided to give her a second chance.  Here’s hoping I enjoy Hopeless more!

Finish a Book in One Day.


I’m a big fan of any and all Nancy Drew books, and Stage Fright is one that I’ve had on my shelf, unread, for probably about 5 years now.  It’s definitely time I read it, and it’s super short, so I should have no trouble finishing this one in a day.

Read About a Character that is Very Different from You.


Being that the Borrowers are only 2 inches tall, I think they definitely qualify as characters that are very different from me.  While I’ve seen the movie a couple times, and was a fan of The Littles (a very Borrowers-esque story – except they have tails) when I was very young, I’ve never read The Borrowers!

Finish a Book Completely Outside.


I’m really excited about this challenge!  I love reading outside as it is, and I think I’ve found the perfect book to go with it.  In Kitty Hawk, it’s all about exploring and adventure, and I think a book like this is the perfect type of book to read outside.  It’ll make it feel atmospheric!

Read a Book You Bought Because of the Cover.


Mobile Library was a complete cover buy for me.  I saw it at the dollar store, and was just so intrigued.  If you’ve ever read this book, let me know how it was, because I’ve never heard of it before!

Read Seven Books.

I’m going to be completely honest, I know I won’t be able to read seven complete books in one week.  However, I’m going to try my best at getting through the books I mentioned, and maybe, just maybe, by some miracle I’ll fit in a 7th book.  Also, I am still in the middle of Gone with the Wind, and while I won’t be finishing it this week, I still plan on continuing to read it alongside these books.  So, maybe that one sort of counts as my 7th book?

Alrighty, there’s my BookTube-A-Thon 2017 TBR. Here’s hoping I get a lot of reading done this week!  Good luck to everyone else participating as well. 🙂

Let me know if you’re participating, and even if you’re not, let me know what you’re currently reading!

    • I just started reading it, and so far it’s just ok. I admit, though, I haven’t gotten too far yet. So we will see! I will be sure to post a review when I’ve finished it! ☺️
