This year’s reading challenges were:
1/ Let a coin toss decide your first read.
2/ Read a book about something you want to do.
3/ Read and watch a book to movie adaptation.
4/ Read a book with green on the cover.
5/ Read a book while wearing the same hat the whole time.
6/ Read a book with a beautiful spine.
7/ Read seven books.
I started Booktubeathon with The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. This has been a high one on my TBR for a little while now and I’m really glad I got a chance to read this one. This helped me get through challenge 2 (traveling Europe) and 4.
Then I moved on to Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. I love poetry and I especially love Spoken Word. I wore my bonnet the whole time and since it covers my head I’m counting that as a hat so challenge 5 completed.
Next I read Eleanor and Park. Also an audiobook. This wasn’t for the challenges, I just really wanted to read it.
Then I re-read Black Movie by Danez Smith. It was just as beautiful as before.
After that I read Fat Kid Rules the World for challenge 1 and 6.
Five books and five challenges is pretty great for me. I think I only got through three last year. This was a fun week of fun reads and I’m happy to have participated. I’ll have my reviews out for these books in the coming weeks. Booktubeathon 2018 was a success!
Did you participate in Booktubeathon this year? If not, do you plan on trying it out next year?
