ITS HERE ITS HERE ITS FINALLY HERE EVERYONE! Today is the day that the famous Booktube-A-Thon 2016 is starting. I have decided to try yet again and complete at least 2 of the 7 challenges that are put forth. Since the summer has started, I have fallen behind on my reading, which is strange because I found that I was reading more during school while the teachers were talking than I am right now. Besides that, I need to start plowing through my TBR pile, as I keep ordering books, yet not reading that many to compensate for it (Whoops).
Anyways, the Challenges Include…
#1. Read a book with yellow on the cover
-Ruthless by Carolyn Lee Adams
#2. Read a book only after sunset
-Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke
#3. Read a book you discovered through booktube (or in my case, bookstagram)
-All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely
#4. Read a book by one of your favourite authors
-Blood Will Tell by April Henry
#5. Read a book that is older than you
-The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#6. Read and watch a book-to-movie adaption
-Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty
PS. I am cheating this challenge in a way, but I am relating it to the Sherlock Holmes series since I can. I also really wanted to read this book and I thought that by including it in this challenge, I would finally get around to it.
#7. Read seven books
-I haven’t decided yet
I have included which books I will be reading (or hope to read) underneath each of the challenge headings. If you choose, I will also be posting my progress on my Instagram account @thedarlingsdiary. Many are from my latest order from Bookoutlet and from some thrift stores that I went to on the weekend in preparation for this week. Now, I have to make the decision of choosing which book I am going to read first.
I wish everyone the best of luck in this year’s challenge!
