I am gonna participate in a readathon.
I’ve always wanted to participate in a readathon. Having a whole week or so dedicated to just fulfilling goals of reading is like a dream. And there’s something really exciting about getting involved in the community and just reading as a group.
SO if you are not aware, Booktube-a-thon is a yearly read-a-thon hosted by Ariel Bissett! It’s a week long read-a-thon with 7 challenges to fulfill and it’s a lot of fun! This year it’s taking place from the 24th of July to the 30th of July! I’ll leave you with all the social media links, so you can connect and participate! All the exclamation points!
So here’s my TBR:
Challenge #1: Read a book with a person on the cover
For this one, I am reading The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan! I wanted to read this one ever since it came out, so I think it’s about time!
Challenge #2: Read a hyped book
For this one, I am going with Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. Everyone is in love with this so I am finally gonna read it and see what all the fuss is about!
Challenge #3: Finish a book in one day
I am definitely gonna read some graphic novels, so I think this is bound to happen. I can do this one. I hope.
Challenge #4: Read about a character that is very different from you
This one is all about diversity, reading diversely. So I am gonna read Human Acts by Han Kang. This one is set in South Korea and it follows people really different then myself, with different struggles and different problems.
Challenge #5: Finish a book completely outdoors
Given the fact that it’s really hot right now, I am not sure about this one. I will however try.
Challenge #6: Read a book you bought because of the cover
Human Acts by Han Kang doubles for this one! I could not resist it when I saw that cover. It’s stunning.
Challenge #7: Read seven books
Seven days to read seven books. This is unlikely to ever happen, unless I read a lot of graphic novels. But you never know.
So that is the most of my TBR for the read-a-thon! I am so so excited and I hope some of you join as well. Let me know in the comments if you’re participating, and I hope to see you (online) during that week.
