Booktubeathon 2015 TBR & Lots of Parentheses

Hi again! I’m super excited to be participating in the Booktubeathon this year. I’m not really sure how I feel about readathons since this is probably going to be the first one I actively participate in so this should be interesting. The Booktubeathon is essentially a week-long readathon where you read books based on certain challenges. It is hosted by Ariel Bissett and a few others and there are daily video challenges and giveaways! It starts August 3rd and ends on the 9th and here is what I’ll be reading!

1. Read a book with blue on the cover.

Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed.

(Do you see the blue..)

2. Read a book by an author who shares the same first letter of your last name.

Monster Vol. 2 by Naoki Urasawa

(My last name is Nguyen.)

3. Read someone else’s favorite book.

Monster Vol. 3 by Naoki Urasawa.

(My sister’s recent favorite; both these monster volumes are manga.)

4. Read the last book you acquired.

7. Read seven books.

Trees Vol. 1 by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard.

(Another graphic novel)

(I’m not sure if I can even finish all of the previous books in seven days but we’ll see.)

I’ll also will probably be finishing up Uprooted by Naomi Novik if I don’t finish it this weekend (which I probably won’t because I’m only a third of the way through). Let me know if you’ve read any of these books or what you’ll be reading in the booktubeathon!

  1. YAY! I’m just as excited I’m thinking about starting A Darker Shade of Magic sometime tomorrow after my summer final or this week at the latest! 😀 (And I’m so behind on replying to comments, but I did see your idea. I totally am up for the suggestion; great thinking!)
