BookTube-A-Thon 2016

I had so much fun participating in the summer biannual bibliothon that was earlier this month. So when I saw that the BookTube-A-Thon 2016 was going to happen I had to join it. I’m not a book-tuber but I watch a lot of booktube. I’m going to participate in the reading challenges, but not the video challenges.  

The BookTube-A-Thon is from July 18th to July 24th.

Here is the link to the BookTube-A-Thon’s youtube channel and video.

The challenges:

1/ Read a book with yellow on the cover

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

This was on my list for the Biannual Bibliothon. But I didn’t manage to read it. So I’ll try to read it this read a thon. I think I’ll start with this book.

2/ Read a book only after sunset

Zenith by Sasha Alsberg & Lindsay Cummings

So where I live, in Norway. The sun is going down around 11 pm. I could not choose a long book, so I went with Zenith.

3/ Read a book you discovered through booktube

Zenith by Sasha Alsberg & Lindsay Cummings

Sasha Alsberg from Abookutopia is one of my favorite booktuber. And she and her friend Lindsay Cummings also a booktuber I believe, wrote this book together. I feel that this book is a good pick for this challenge, because two booktubers wrote it.  

4/ Read a book by one of your favourite authors

This one was hard to choose. Because I wanted to read This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab for this challenge. But I have not yet received it in the mail. So I had to choose something from my shelves.

I choose to read Grave Peril by Jim Butcher. I want to read a fantasy book. And this is the 3 book in the Dresden Files. I like the books in the serie that I have read so far.

5/ Read a book that is older than you

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

This book is from 1953. It’s a classic. And I have not yet read it. It has been on my shelves for years. I need to read it now.

6/ Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptation

Interview With The Vampire by Anne Rice

I’m curious about this book. I don’t know if I’ll like it or not. But hey let’s try and read it, and watch the movie after.

7/ Read seven books

I have 5 books on this TBR. I don’t think I can finish 7. It is like impossible for me I think. I really want to try. But 5 is already a lot. Maybe if I read some graphic novels or mangas. But I’m not really into them right now.

  1. That’s a great TBR! I know how it is when you live in a country when you only get like..6 hours of darkness around this time of the year (I live in the Netherlands)! I hope you have fun with your picks 🙂

    1. Thank you. Yeah I had to choose a short book for that one haha. Good thing I don’t live where the sun never sets in the summer. Like in the north. I visited your blog. Your dogs are so cute 🙂


      1. 😀 Thank you!
        Yes, I think you made a smart choice going with a short book. I decided to go for a pretty chunky one (The Fireman by Joe Hill). I hope to make it! But yeah, the challenge is impossible for those who live more to the North..

  2. Oh cool!! I used to be a bit of a Booktuber a few months ago, but it’s a lot of work having a blog + a youtube channel + going to school so I had to sacrifice. Hey, More Happy than Not is amazing! I did not really like Zenith though. I mean, it was okay… Anyways, have fun!!
