The winter biannual bibliothon is happening this Sunday and I plan on participating to get a head start on my reading goal of 70 books. I am just participating in the reading challenges and not the video challenges.
1. Read the Group Book: Stalking Jack the Ripper
I don’t own this book and I didn’t want to run out and buy it so, I stopped by my library and luckily they had it available to check out. I do look forward to reading this because I have heard some good things about it.
2. Throwback: Pick any past Bibliothon reading challenge
I wanted to use this challenge to double up with a book that I already plan on reading. So, I picked read a book with over 800 pages and for that I picked Winter by Marissa Meyer. I already plan on reading this for the retelling challenge.
3. Read a 2016 new release
What Lies Between Us by Nayomi I picked this one just because it looks like a quick read and is one of the few books I own that was published in 2016
4. Read a book a booktuber recommends to you
I plan on reading Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. This one wasn’t recommended to me by a booktuber but by a book blogger instead but I figure it is kind of the same thing.
5. Read a book you were really excited for but never picked up
I bought A Court of Thorns and Roses early last year and it has remained unread even though I was so excited for it when I bought it. This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast and there is so much hype surrounding this series I can’t wait to find out what the fuss is about.
6. Read a retelling
For this challenge I have chosen Winter by Marissa Meyer and this is a retelling of Snow White. I picked this one instead because I want to finish the series, Winter is the fourth and final book in the Lunar Chronicles. It is huge book but I am hoping to complete it in a week as well as some others.
7. Read a diverse book
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Tally is the perfect book for this challenge because not only does it deal with racial tension as desegregation of the school system in 1950’s but it also deals with sexual orientation as the two female characters start to develop feelings for each other.
Those are all the six books I plan on reading *fingers crossed* that I can finish them all. I will have to neglect a few things but that’s OK.
