Booktube-A-Thon 2017 Info & TBR!

Over the last two months, I've really started to get back into reading. I used to be a big reader but I've been in a massive reading slump over the last 2-3 years, reading maybe 4-ish books across then. This year though, since April, I've already read over 30 books, and I really attribute this to getting into watching Booktube videos. So this year I've decided to take part in Booktube-A-Thon!

Booktube-A-Thon is a week long readathon, hosted by Ariel Bisset on Youtube and starting on July 24th until July 30th. There are reading challenges, video challenges, Instagram challenges and Twitter sprints, with prizes to be won for the latter three.

The video, Instagram and Twitter challenges/sprints are announced on the day, but the reading challenge list is up already. The challenges, with my choices for each, are as follows:

1. Read a book with a person on the cover - Sailor Moon vol. 4 by Naoko Takeuchi
2. Read a hyped book - Caraval by Stephanie Garber
3. Finish a book in one day - Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
4. Read about a character that is very different from you - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling
5. Read a book completely outdoors - The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
6. Read a book you got because of the cover - Robin Hood by Roger Green
7. Read seven books - Winter by Marissa Meyer (if it arrives this week and I have time)

The challenges are just for fun, and you do not need a different book for each one. Here's the video explaining the challenges:

The event starts at 12am wherever you are, and the daily challenges are posted at 12am est (which is 5am here in Ireland). Each daily challenge is open for 24 hours.

I am so excited to take part in this readathon!
