BookTubeAThon 2017

It´s that time of the year again: it´s time for BooktubeAThon, a week-long read a ton (which basically is like christmas for the online book community)  hosted by Ariel Bissett and you have no idea about how excited I´m. I simply love how the online bok community comes together during this week and tries to read as much as possible and simply celebrate books. I feel like it just makes me so excited to read and it´s a great way to discover new books. If you never have heard about BookTubeAThon before and think it sounds interesting, you can read more about it here.

Without further ado, here´s the books that I´m planning (hoping) to read:

1. Read a book with a person on the  cover

For this challenge, I´m going to read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I´ve wanted to read this book since it first came out so I´m really excited to finally read it. I ordered it almost a week ago and it still hasen´t arrived though so I´m starting to get a little bit worried that it won´t arrive before the Read a Thon is over.

2. Finish a book in one day

Well, if I want to manage to read 7 books during this week, I´ll kind of have to finish every book in one day but i´m choosing Just Kids by Patti Smith for this challenge. I stumbled over an audio book copy of this book (with Patti Smith herself as the narrator) at the library the other day and i thought it seemed to be interesting so I decided to borrow it. It´s 9 hours long so it will take me a little while to listen to it but hey, it´s BookTubeAThon, the whole point of it is to spend a lot of time reading (or in this case listening to) books.

3. Read a hyped book

For this challenge I´m choosing A Monster calls by Patrick Ness. It seems to be a great book (and it´s REALLY hyped) and a pretty quick read so it´s perfect for a read a ton.

4. Read about a character that is very different from you

I´m actually still not completely sure what to read for this challenge but probably The Underdog by Markus Zusak.

5. Finish a book completely outdoors

Fragmented Bliss by Benita Jenniefer, I got a review copy of this book sent to me by the author and I can´t wait to read it. It´s a pretty short poetry book so it should´t be too hard to finish completely outdoors and for some reason i think that poetry books are the perfect books to read outside.

6. Read a book you got because of the cover

Okay, I didn´t only get Lady Susan by Jane Austen because of the cover (I also got it because she´s one of my favorite authors) but 80% of the reason I got it was the cover.

Just look at it!!!

7. Read seven books

The seventh book that I´m hoping to read is Harmonies of War by Ruby Fitzgerald. This is yet another book that I´ve received a review copy of and I´m obviously really excited to read it.

Are only of you guys participating in the Booktube a Thon reading challenge?
