Booktube-A-Thon TBR

First off, I had to show off my new title/logo for my blog. And secondly, I think it's time I stop procrastinating on this and put my Booktube-A-Thon TBR together!

So, I obviously will not be doing the vlog challenges since I don't have a booktube channel, so I will only be doing as much of the reading challenges as I can. In case you want to see the video where all the challenges are revealed, click right here.

But, I can guarantee you guys that there will be absolutely no way I will be able to do all of these challenges. The main reason is that I am surprisingly busy (and I am mostly talking about near the end of the weekend where I will not be on my computer, or at least on the internet, for like a day and a half; but I will talk more about that in a mid-way progress during booktube-a-thon. But, I'm going to give a warning that I will probably fail this hard. Anyway, let's talk about the TBR!

I will try my best to complete all the challenges, and here they are:

1. A book with pictures.

Now, this one is kind of hard because I own like no manga and no books that have pictures in them, I am most likely going to be skipping this one. But I will probably go for the Clockwork Prince manga, but I don't think I will.

EDIT: I just realized that I also have Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children  by Ransom Riggs because I have been wanting to read it for like 5ever so I'll get it done here.

2. Start and finish a series.

Oh boy, now this is the one that gets everyone in the TBRs, especially me because, as many of you know, I mostly need to finish series. I think I am going to go for is
the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, I was originally going to marathon this trilogy in September, but then I realized that I won't have time to do it and I really want to read it, so I will get to this.

EDIT: Okay, so there is a pretty good chance I won't finish the ENTIRE seires because I have the borrow the last two at the library and so I won't get to Ruin and Rising until AFTER the Booktube-a-Thon unless I am lucky, but I am counting this either way.

3. A book with red on the cover.

Originally when I heard that, I was thinking of reading Paper Towns by John Green, but I want to save that for August when I am hoping to read all the contemporaries. So I think I'm going to go for:
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

4. A book someone else picks out for you.
I decided to combine two challenges! Look below to see the pick.

5. A book from the genre you've read the least this year.
I keep on thinking that it is contemporary, but I might be wrong. -does the math- I am wrong. It is Science Fiction. Hmm...You know what, I'm just going to ask my good friend Kitty on goodreads to picked either These Broken Stars by Amie 

6. A book to movie adaptation
This one was a little bit tricky, but I thought it over. And I am going to finally (hopefully) tackle down, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I am like the only person on Earth who has not yet read this book so I need to do that, and also I want to see the movie so. Bam!

7. Read seven books or an average of 300 pages.

I'm going to fail this challenge, I already know it! But, inbetween those or in case I finish all of those, I am going to finish: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, I have been reading this book for about a month and I am still like forty pages into this so I need to finish it now and then when August comes I'll read Crown of Midnight and then Heir of Fire. That's the plan and I hope it doesn't back-fire and explode in my face.

What's on your Booktube-a-Thon TBR, or what do you plan on reading during Booktube-a-Thon?


  1. Cool picks! I, too, am planning on reading Ms. Peregrine's. Good luck, and stay positive :)

    1. Thanks, I hope to at least complete two of these challenges and I might also change all of these in the middle of the week except for Alienated.

  2. Great picks! Good luck too :) Grisha is a really quick series to get through. I finished the first two each in a day!

    1. Thanks Rach! I probably won't be able to read them all because I have to wait for Ruin & Rising, I might read the first two next week and wait to read the third one. Good luck to you too!
