BookTube-A-Thon 2017 TBR

So I tried doing this last year, and failed spectacularly.  Why not try again?

If you haven’t heard of the BookTube-A-Thon, you can check out the announcement here. I know I won’t make to the seven books, but whatever, I’m still going to try! I will try to livetweet my attempt (and make my twitter feed a bit less dead).

These are the challenges:

1/ Read a book with a person on the cover.

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger — It’s not the best idea to pick up such a chunky book, but I’ve been wanting to read this for such a long time! I might swap this for either Clockwork Prince or The Pearl Thief though.

2/ Read a hyped book.

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare — This trilogy is so hyped, and has such a devoted fanbase that I couldn’t think of another. I wasn’t too impressed by the first one, but I did enjoy reading it. I feel like these books would have been my entire life had I discovered them when they were coming out, but oh well.

3/ Finish a book in one day.

Seasons of Mists (The Sandman Vol. 4) by Neil Gaiman — These comics go by so fast that they’d be perfect for reading them in a single sitting. I’ve been really enjoy what I’ve read of Sandman so far and can’t wait to continue.

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

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon — This book stars a Jamaican girl and an Korean-American boy, both of whom are from completely different backgrounds than me. I haven’t picked this up for the past few months because I haven’t been into romance?? Like at all. But this book has enough interesting elements that I want to give it a shot regardless.

5/ Finish a book completely outdoors.

6/ Read a book you bought because of the cover.

Richard II by William Shakespeare — I’ve been collecting the Pelican editions of Shakespeare’s plays because I love the covers, and I need to read them! I want to start with the Henriad, but I had to wait for this edition to arrive.

7/ Read seven books.

As I said before, I doubt I’ll manage to read seven books in seven days. If, and only If, I manage to read all the one I’ve listed before, I will be picking up the following books:

 

Will you be participating? Do you like Read-A-Thons? I do(!) even though I’m terrible at them.
