I love the Biannual Bibliothon read-a-thon so much because they always include challenges and activities for ALL of the communities. In July I participated in the Summer editions and posted up a challenge on the blog every single day. This time around I’ve picked which challenges I will write, so not all of them will actually appear.
I have SO many amazing books to read during this week! The read-a-thon will take place from January 20th-26th, and there are 7 reading challenges to complete as well as blogging prompts and video ideas. Today I wanted to share with you my VERY LATE TBR!
You can double on books, but you cannot count one novel for three challenges.
1-Read the Group Book: Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
This challenge is at the bottom of my priorities because I don’t own the book yet and I’m not much interested in it. I’m aching to read ALL of my other books, so before Otherworld gets done, I would have to get through all of them.
I’m so sad I will most likely miss the group live-show, but I’ll definitely try as best I can to squeeze this one in.
2-Read a Sequel: Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase
I wasn’t able to get Nancy Drew #1 at my library, but I found book two! Not only does it complete this challenge, but also another one as well. I’ve been wanting to read about the classic crime-solver, Nancy, ever since I saw the Hollywood movie ages ago starring Emma Roberts. This book is the top priority.
3-Read a Book You’ve Never Heard of Before: Truly, Devious by Maureen Johnson
I was browsing through Goodreads when this title came up on my feed. I didn’t know Maureen Johnson was releasing a new book, and I’d never even heard about the premise. Then Epic Reads featured it on their blog weeks later, but I’d already added it to my TBR. So this is a book I didn’t know anything about. No one even talked about it!
4-Read a Book About Mental Illness: Four Weeks, Five People by Jennifer Yu
What I’ve seen around about this book is very little, but I bought it in July because Emmmabooks (also one of the hosts of the BIBIB) recommended it. This book is about several main characters. One of them has OCD, and another has an eating disorder.
Emma chose this book for this challenge as well, and since it’s been on my shelf for 6 months already, I thought it would be fun to pick it too and then exchange opinions about it with her!
5-Read a Book That Was Mentioned in Another book/movie/t.v. show: Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase
I didn’t plan on doubling up on anything, but then I adjusted my list of books so that I could because otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to get through most of my selection. The Nancy Drew series was mentioned in Gilmore Girls because Rory loved it.
6-Read a Book Under 200 Pages: Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell
I’ve pushed back reading this book, even though I’m sure to like it. It’s 144 pages long on Goodreads, so it will be an absolute fast read.
7-Read a Backlist Title: Dress Codes for Small Towns by Courtney C. Stevens
In the Pre-Read-a-thon live-show, the hosts clarified that they considered backlist books to be novels published BEFORE 2017, and I could choose plenty of books that meet that criteria, but I’m just DYING to read this book and can wait no longer.
Dress Codes was published in August 2017, and since we’re in 2018 now, I consider this to be backlist. I’m twisting it in this case, but I really need this book to be on the list!
Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase: 182
Truly, Devious: 432
Four Weeks, Five People: 384
Almost Midnight: 144
Dress Codes for Small Towns: 352
Total: 1849 pages.
Averaged at 264 pages per day.
