Hey bloggers! Today we’re posting about the books we’re planning to read for Booktube-A-Thon, which runs from July 14-21! If you’re unaware of what the Booktube-A-Thon is, you can check out this video.
There are 7 reading challenges in this Booktube-A-Thon, all of which are optional:
1. Read a book with a red cover
2. Read a book with pictures
3. Start and finish a series
4. Read a book someone else picks out for you
5. Read a book from the genre you’ve read the least this year
6. Read a book-to-movie adaptation
7. Read seven books OR 300 pages a day
Now, here are the books we are planning to read, along with the challenges being completed!
DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT by Laini Taylor
This book has red on the cover, plus I’ve been DYING to read it! Can’t wait to get started!
AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS by Jules Verne
It’s a book-to-movie adaptation that I am so excited to read!
X-MEN: THE PHALANX COVENANT adapted by Paul Mantell and Avery Hart
I randomly picked this off my brother’s shelf since it was: a) collecting dust; and b) has illustrations, so it fits with one of the challenges! I’m not a huge X-Men fan but i’m looking forward to this relatively short book. 🙂
Besides these three, I will also try to read BURN FOR BURN or THE MOON AND MORE, both of which were picked out by someone else (my sister) if I have more time. I highly doubt that, though. 😉
DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT, and DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS all by Laini Taylor
This is the whole trilogy, so that’s 1 challenge to-be-completed! The 2nd book also has a red cover, which was aforementioned in my TBR. I also picked out DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE for Sasha since I love it so much!
HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE
This is a book-to-movie adaptation that Sasha can’t wait to read!
*Also, these 4 books amount to around 2100 pages, so that works with the reading 300 pages per day challenge!
