Booktube-a-thon 2014

So I discovered Booktubeathon about 4 hours ago & within minutes of watching Jesse The Reader’s TBR video, I decided ‘I Wanna Do that’!

I spent the remaining hours watching Ariel’s Booktubeathon informational videos on this weeks event & FAQ, and realising I was addicted, started watching a bunch of participant TBRs. I checked out the Twitter hash #booktubeathon & cheered a few people on as they started reading. I also cooked & ate dinner somewhere in all that. A multi-tasker or just a really excited reader who got hungry?

Reading Challenges

In the last hour, I have been trying to figure out what books I’m going to read this week that fits the 7 challenges. They are:-

1. Book with pictures: Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them by J.K. Rowling.
2. Start & finish a series: Forgiving Lies & Deceiving Lies by Molly McAdams.
3. Red on the cover: Breakfall by Kate Pavelle.
4. Someone else picked for me: The Gardener by Rudyard Kipling.
5. A book from least read genre: Animal Farm by George Orwell.
6. A book to movie adaptation: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.
7. To read 7 books!
