The Booktube-A-Thon

I know I said I wasn't going to do a post about this, but I thought why not. 

The Booktube-A-Thon is just a read-a-thon that Ralean from Padfootandprongs07 and Ariel from ArielBisset on You Tube created. It runs from July 15th to July 21st. And you just read as much as you can in that week. There are also 7 challenges that you can do to make it a little more difficult. I will be doing only 6 of these challenges. If you want more info you can watch the video HERE

I will be updating this post with my progress and I will do a post on Sunday to wrap-up and show you what I managed to read. Which I don't think will be that much, because of work and such. Anyway, on to the challenges and the books I will be reading for them.


1. read an average of 300 pages a day (I don't think I will manage this one.)

2. read a book with over 500 pages

3. re-read one book
4. finish a series/trilogy
5. read a book that's been on your shelf forever
6. listen to an audiobook (I won't be doing this one)
7. read a classic

So, Grave Mercy will knock of challenges 2 & 3 since it's over 500 pages and will be a re-read.

For number 4 is With All My Soul. I'm glad I will finally read this one, I've been putting this one off and off, because I don't want the series to end.

For Number 5 is Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict. I picked this one, because A) it's been on my shelf for about 1 year now. And also because it's also under 300 pages so I'm hopping I can read this one relatively fast. 

For number 7 is The Scarlet Pimpernel. This is another Re-read, but I want to read it again and also it's one of the shortest Classic. So, again I'm hopping I will read through it fast.

And finally if I have time I want to read Dark Triumph.
