As most of us know, Book-Tube-A-Thon(BTAT) is a week long challenge to read seven books. Theres are normally around 6-7 challenges that you can complete by picking out books to read that fit the challenge(ex:read a book with blue on the cover). They just released the set of challenges for this year and I’m super excited!
I’m sad about the Book-Tube-A-Thon(BTAT) going on at the same time as The Biannual Bibliothon(TBB) but it’s not like I can try doing both at the same time. So because I’ve never done The Biannual Bibliothon(TBB) I thought that I would just do the BTAT because I know how it works and I’ve done it every year it started, maybe next time I’ll be able to hop onto the TBB train. Without any more stalling, here is my TBR for the BTAT!
- Read a book with a person on the cover
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
- Read a hyped book
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
- Finish a book in one day
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
- Read about a character that is very different than you
Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King
- Finish a book completely outdoors
Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit
- Read a book you bought because of the cover
Mosquitoland by David Arnold
- Read 7 books
Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer
I’m super excited about the BTAT this year but I’m also moving near the end of this month/beginning of August so I hope it doesn’t interfere with any of my reading for the most part. If you liked this post make sure to follow me to see more where this came from!
Are you participating in BTAT? If so what are your books you picked out for the challenges? Did we pick out any of the same books? Are you participating in the TBB instead?
Just like last month what I’m choosing to read isn’t going to be a lot because I just started recovering from a reading slump and don’t want to go back into one so soon. I will probably read more than what I’m planning but it just depends on how fast I can get through these.
- Vengeance Road By Erin Bowman
I picked this book up last June while I was in Texas. If I’m going to be honest I only picked it up because of the cover, I only heard one review(a good one) from PeruseProject off booktube and made an impulse decision.
- Never Fade By Alexandra Bracken
I don’t like spreading out books in a series too much or I end up forgetting smaller details and not enjoying it as much. This is again another reread but I honestly don’t remember anything from it sadly.
- Cress By Marissa Meyer
I’m excited to get to this book next in the series, I just finished reading scarlet and am excited to read Cress and see how Marissa Meyer plans to balance all of these different point of views.
- In the Afterlight By Alexandra Bracken
This is the one I’m uncertain about because I don’t know if I will be in the mood for reading after all of these dystopian and sci-fy books. This will probably be read near the very end of the month and I know myself so there will be another contemporary thrown into the mix somewhere, it’ll be a tight squeeze but I have faith.
Hopefully I will be able to read all of these books, I don’t have too much planned for this month and I’ve been reading about a hundred pages a night so I think I can do it, just better not start slacking. If you liked this post and want to see more please follow to get a notification everytime I post.
What you plan on reading this month? Any suggestions for me to read? Have you read any of the books I’m planning on reading this month? What did you think of them(NO SPOILERS PLEASE)?
Here are the books that I planned on getting to this month. I realize that it’s not that ambitious but I just came out of a huge reading slump and im not too keen on putting myself into a new one so quickly after burning myself out. I might not make it to all of these, but I also might read them all and more(I’ll eventually cover that in my June Wrap-Up at the end of June).
- More Than This By: Patrick Ness
Seth drowned, but now he’s awake somewhere he doesn’t know but feels as if it’s familiar.I picked up this book at my local half-priced bookstore almost a year ago on a whim, and in honor of my new years resolution of reading an older book I bought every month I decided it was time. And considering it’s summer I picked a contemporary. Order Here
2. Cinder By: Marissa Meyer
Set in a dystopian world where a plague runs rampant, Cinder (a cyborg) has a past that may even surprise her, but she must uncover its secrets first to save the world(The first in a quartet). I read this book two years ago after checking it out from the library but never revisited the series. After buying the first three from my local half-priced bookstore I have finally decided to pick it up with all the hype surrounding the entire series still. Order Here
3. The Darkest Minds By: Alexandra Bracken
An illness has swept the nation, infecting all kids and killing most, the rest who have survived are left behind with powers. The survivors are sent to one of several camps. Ruby was shipped away when she was eleven to Thurmond, now she is sixteen and escaped. I read the first two in the series and followed them as they were released but I never got aorund to buying the third book, I eventully bought the third book(In The Afterlight) last month and have decided to re-read the series because if Im going to be honset, I don’t remember A THING from the series. Order Here
