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.
Simon vs. the HomoSapiens Agenda
(From my library.)
5. Finish a book without letting go of it.
Sex Criminals Vol. 1 by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky
(Bindup of Issues #1-5; a relatively short trade paperback)
6. Read a book you really want to read
A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab.
(My buddy read with Summer over at XingSings; Super excited for this one!)
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!
