Today is the first day of the BookTube-A-Thon, and while I don’t have a YouTube channel I am still going to try and complete the reading challenges. I will also be participating in the Instagram challenges and Twitter sprints so I am very excited for those as well! So yeah, here are the books I will be reading this week!
Challenge #1 – Read a book with yellow on the cover – For this challenge I will be reading Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson because I want to read another Morgan Matson book and this one had yellow on the cover so it worked out. This book is about a girl named Amy who’s father recently died so her and her family move from California to Connecticut to have a fresh start. To get there though, she has to go on a four day road trip with an old family friend named Roger who has a past of his own. So far I am really liking this book and I can’t wait to finish it!
Challenge #2 – Read a book after sunset – I will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling for this challenge and I am SO excited to be re reading this book. I just love the feeling when I read Harry Potter so I am glad I have an excuse to pick it up again.
Challenge #3 – Read a book you discovered through BookTube – For this one, I will be reading Champion by Marie Lu because I did hear about the Legend trilogy through BookTube and since I need to read the last book I decided to add it in here! If you didn’t know, the Legend series takes place in a futuristic version of the USA called the Republic, and the story follows a boy named Day who is a convicted criminal and a girl named June who is beloved by the Republic. When June’s brother is killed one day, all signs point to Day so she goes on a mission to hunt him down. When she does find him, she realizes he may not be the criminal everyone says he is, and he shows her the Republic isn’t as trustworthy and great as she thought it was.
Challenge #4 – Read a book by a favourite author of yours – I will be reading Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan for this challenge, because he is definitely one of my favourite authors. The Percy Jackson series was one of the first series I read so I have a sentimental love for it. That and his books are so much fun to read. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is about a boy named Percy who discovers that he is a demigod which means he is half human half Greek God. Because of this, he is escorted to a “safe haven” for demigods called Camp Half Blood but immediately finds out he is being convicted of stealing Zeus’s Master Bolt. So he and 2 other friends go on a quest to find out who actually stole it and clear Percy’s name.
Challenge #5 – Read a book that is older than you – Since you can combine challenges I will be combining this challenge with number 3 and 6 so I will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone since it is older than me.
Challenge #6 – Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptation – Surprise! I will also being reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for this challenge.
Hope you enjoyed this TBR for this week, and I really hope I can get through them all!
