It’s that time of year again and the annual summer Booktube-a-thon is upon us! The Booktube-a-thon is a read-a-thon hosted mainly on Youtube but I thought I would do it here on our blog. You can check out the official video and channel here for more information. I participated in the read-a-thon last year and I had so much fun and because i’ve got so much time this I thought why not do it again this year!

The Booktube-a-thon is a bit earlier this year and runs from 18th – 24th July and the aim is to read seven books which match the challenges given. The challenges include 7 book-related tasks (that can be combined) to set up your to-read list.

Here are the 2016 challenges:

  1. Read a book with yellow on the cover
  2. Read a book only after sunset
  3. Read a book you discovered through Booktube
  4. Read a book by one of your favourite authors
  5. Read a book that is older than you
  6. Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptation
  7. Read seven books

My TBR consists of…

1. Snow Like Ashes – Sara Raasch

I found this one on my bookshelf and I had completely forgotten about it so when I did find it, it was a nice surprise. It has a bit of yellow on the cover but I think it counts and I super excited to dive right into this book!

2. The Girl On The Train – Paula Hawkins

I thought I’d a thriller to read in the evening, something spooky and mysterious to match with the dark surroundings. After the hype this book received I was skeptical of reading of just in case it didn’t live up to the praise but with the movie coming out, I thought now was the perfect time!

3. Campion – Marie Lu

I have been whizzing through this series so theres no doubt that I will fly through this book! I have fallen in love with this series and if it wasn’t for Booktube I don’t think I would have discovered it!

4. Six Of Crows – Leigh Bardugo

Again I’m late to the party with this book and I have been wanting to read it for a long time, it’s just been sitting on my shelf looking beautiful! I’ve heard fantastic things about this book and I loved the Shadow and Bone Trilogy so there is no doubt that I will enjoy this one! It’s a big book so fingers crossed I can read it in the time given!

5. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone – J.K Rowling

Published in 1997 (the year I was born), Harry Potter has always been one of my favourites and I haven’t read this series in ages!

6. The Notebook – Nicola Sparks

I’ve read loads of Nicola Sparks books but I only just realised that I haven’t read ‘The Notebook’ and it’s one of my favourite films so it is a perfect fit for this challenge.

7. Lady Renegades – Rachel Hawkins

This is the final book in the series and super excited to finish it off. I was disappointed with the second book so fingers crossed this one is better. All the books in this series are all easy reads so this shouldn’t be a problem to check off my list of books!

Well, thats my TBR and fingers crossed I can complete lots of these challenges! Let me know if you’re participating in the booktube-a-thon as I would love to know whats on your TBR! Happy Reading!
