And So It Continues… – Booktube-A-Thon 2015

Again, this is not an official post, but I am just writing to say that the painful challenge of not putting down ‘Legend’ by Marie Lu, is over. I have finished book one! I actually finished the book around two this afternoon, which I was really happy about, because it allowed me to make a start on ‘Beautiful Creatures’ by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I tactically chose the smallest of the books to complete this challenge and I decided to get it out of the way on the first day. I’m not going to be taking part in the video challenges, because I won’t have access to YouTube everyday and it’s too much to do the challenges for me. Sorry, guys! Anyway, I’m already halfway through my second book on the first day, so good progress I think!


And So It Begins… – Booktube-A-Thon 2015

So, this is just a quick update before I leave for work experience, but I thought I would just write and say hello and YAY! The Booktube-a-thon 2015 has begun and as I write this I am clutching my half finished copy of ‘Legend’ by Marie Lu. I’m hoping to finish fairly soon, because it is really hard to do things one handed (it took me ten minutes to tie my shoelaces…). The first official update will be posted tomorrow and the last update on Monday 10th August, when the readathon has finished. I hope you follow my challenge, and I especially hope you take part in it too!


Booktube-a-thon 2015 – The Challenges and My TBR

So, I have decided to take part in this year’s Booktube-a-thon from August 3rd – August 9th. I feel obligated to take part in it, partly due to the fact that I recently started my blog and BAM there’s a readathon. I am so, so, so excited for this! And can I just say that the challenges set this year are amazing!

The challenges:

  1. Read a book with blue on the cover.

  3. Read someone else’s favourite book.

So, there you go, that is my schedule for the Booktube-a-thon 2015. I will do daily updates on the blog for it and any books I read will be reviewed at some point (not necessarily when I read them, because I probably won’t have time!). The challenge updates will almost definitely be the only thing posted next week, so don’t hate me!
