BookTube-A-Thon 2017 Wrap-Up!


Hey everyone!  It’s a little late, but here is my wrap-up for this year’s Booktube-A-Thon.  I didn’t get as many of the challenges done as I had hoped, and even the challenges that I did do, I didn’t finish all the books completely, but I still had a good time, and actually read quite a bit more than the previous weeks, so yay for that!

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.

Read a Book with a Person on the Cover.


I love, love, LOVED this book!  A full review will be posted soon, but just know this book was so good!  Morgan Matson always write such well-written, comfortable, summer-y books, and Second Chance Summer was no exception.  This book had me smiling like a fool and, on the flip side, ugly crying.


Read a Hyped Book.


I didn’t get to finish Hopeless during the readathon, but from what I’ve read, which is about half, I’m really enjoying more than the other Colleen Hoover book I read, Maybe Someday.  This book is definitely a bit problematic, especially Holder’s actions very early in the book, but it’s fiction, and even though I, personally, don’t find Holder swoon worthy so far, this book is one you don’t want to put down!

My rating as of now:


Finish a Book in One Day.


Stage Fright wasn’t my favorite Nancy Drew or Hardy Boy book, but I didn’t expect it to be either, lol.  This book was a super quick read, and wasn’t too predictable.  I had a lot of fun reading this one, and it was just the lighthearted, easy book I needed to read.


Finish a Book Completely Outdoors.


I didn’t complete Kitty Hawk completely during the readathon, but every time I read it, I read it outdoors.  I got about halfway through this one, as well!  So far, it’s been a lot of fun, very informative, and adventurous!

My rating as of now:


Read a Book You Bought Because of the Cover.


Mobile Library is yet another book I started, but didn’t finish.  I read the first chapter, and honestly, I didn’t love it.  I may give it another go at a later time, but I just didn’t feel like pushing through this book during the readathon.  This isn’t a spoiler, because it’s literally the first page, but the book starts with this grown woman kissing a 12 year old boy, and I was just like, “what the heck am I reading?!?”  Now, maybe I read it wrong, because from the reviews on Goodreads nobody has talked about that or even mentioned anything of the sort, but I just didn’t feel like finding out during the readathon.  If anyone has read this book, please tell me, is it really what it seems, and if it is, why in the world is everyone who reads this book okay with it, because that is hecka creepy?!

My rating as of now:


Well, that wraps up the BookTube-A-Thon for me!
