January 2017 Biannual Bibliothan TBR!

If you didn’t know, the Biannual Bibliothan is a reading event that takes place in the summer and the winter and is a great way to connect with other readers over social media. There are reading challenges (which is what I will be participating in), video challenges and even challenges over Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. I wasn’t sure if I was going to participate this year but I decided to so here are the books I will be reading from January 8-14 which is when the event takes place.

  1. Throwback: Choose a Reading Challenge from a Previous Year: Re Read Your Favourite Book in a Series – For this I am going to be re reading An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and I know there are only 2 books out at the moment but it will be part of a series. I really wanted to read the second book, A Torch Against the Night, but I feel like I should re read the first book so it is fresh in my mind for when I jump into the next one! Plus it is fantastic.
  2. Read a 2016 ReleaseA Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir came out in Summer of 2016 so right after I finish Ember I am diving into this sequel. I am so excited to use this bibliothan as a chance to push myself to finally read this book and I know I am going to love it.
  3. Read a BookTuber Recommendation – I don’t personally know any BookTuber’s so I just watched a few recommendation videos and picked a  book from there. Since I haven’t yet finished re reading Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by JK Rowling I decided to use this as way to motivate myself to complete it!
  4. Read a Book You Were Really Excited for but Never Picked Up – I am really, really excited to read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adieh but I haven’t got a chance to pick it up yet so I am so pumped to give it a read this month.
  5. Read a Retelling – I am doubling up this challenge and am reading The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adieh because it is a retelling of the story A Thousand and One Nights so it counts!
  6. Read a Diverse Book – I am also doubling up this challenge and choosing An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir because this amazing book is filled with people of colour so I am excited to read it for my challenge!

Those are the books I chose for each challenge and I hope you enjoyed! If you are interested in joining the Biannual Bibliothan than check out their YouTube channel Biannual Bibliothan for more info!
