Hey all, Dani here.
Why am I adding a week long readathon to my schedule right now? I don’t typically have the greatest luck with these sorts of events, but I’m in a reading mood, and I’m hoping this will help give my TBR a bit more direction. The bibliothon goes on twice each year, in a summer session and a winter session. It is hosted by several different Booktubers, Bookstagrammers, and Book Bloggers. You can find out more by checking out the videos here.
Anyway, I’m going to try and read as much as possible, but if I can complete some of the reading challenges then that is definitely a bonus.
The first important part to mention is that this readathon is being held from July 14th through July 20th.
Each session, there is a group read, and after the week is over, they meet to discuss it. For this particular session the group read selection is The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw. I already read this book a couple months ago, so obviously I’m not going to be doing this challenge.
There are six other book prompt/reading challenges:
- Choose from someone else’s TBR
- Try the first chapter of three books and then pick one
- Read a book that has been on your TBR for over a year
- Read a predicted 5 star read
- Own voices — different than you
- Read the last book you bought
Here’s what I have on my TBR so far: And I Darken has been on my TBR for over a year, My Hero Academia Vigilantes is a predicted 5 star read, Trail of Lightning is an own voices novel, and City of Lies was part of my most recent book haul.
I’m still looking at other people’s TBRs for a good selection for that one. And I don’t know what three books I’ll pick up to read the first chapters before picking one, so that’ll probably be a random choice.
But hopefully I’ll be able to read all of these books. I think a couple of them are a decent length, so we’ll see what happens.
Are you participating in the Summer Biannual Bibliothon? Let me know in the comments, so we can keep up with our progress through the week.
