Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR

biannual bibliothon, readathon, list of readathons, books to read during a readathon, short books,

Hello! Today I am here with a readathon TBR! I am participating in a few readathons this month and the first one is the Summer Biannual Bibliothon which runs from 14th July to 20th July. This readathon comprises of optional reading challenges, video challenges and Instagram challenges. Here is my TBR for the reading challenges:

1.       Group book:

So the first challenge is to read the group book which is The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw. This is a book that I was planning on reading at some point. In this book, three witches are said to come back every year and lure boys to die by drowning.

2.       Choose from someone else’s TBR:

The second challenge is to read a book from someone else’s TBR. I researched the TBRs of booktubers, book bloggers and bookstagrammers and decided to read Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire which is on Little Red Reader’s TBR. This is a short book that I have wanted to read for a while. This book series follows children who have come back from other worlds such as Narnia.

3.       Try the first chapter of 3 books and pick 1:  

I have already read part of Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton and Dark Matter by Blake Crouch so I am going to take those as two try a chapters and I am going to also read a chapter of Fullmetal Alchemist volume 5 because I read volume 4 a while ago and I want to get back into the series. I might end up finishing Dark Matter or Jurassic Park before the readathon but I am trying to cut down my TBR shelf here so I am going to allow it!

4.       Read a book that has been on your TBR for over a year:

There are quite a few books that I could have chosen for this challenge but I have decided to read The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. I have actually already started this book and I am near the end of the first novella. This book is a bind up of five novellas set before the Throne of Glass novels. I wanted to read this book before reading the Throne of Glass series.

5.       Read a predicted 5 star read:

For this challenge I have chosen Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I love the concept of this story and I enjoyed the Studio Ghibli film of the book. This is a fantasy book that follows Sophie, a girl who seems to have a lot of bad luck. She is cursed by a witch and meets a wizard called Howl. The series follows their adventures.

6.       Own voices - different than YOU:  

For this challenge I am choosing The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas as I feel that it is an important book to read. If you haven’t heard of this book, it follows a black teenage who watched her friend get shot by the police and she is the only one who knows what truly happened. I think this one is going to be emotional but it is definitely a book that everyone needs to read.

7.       Read the last book you bought:

The last book that I bought was The Surface Breaks by Louise O’ Neill, a dark reimagining of The Little Mermaid.


I probably won’t get through all of these books but I am excited to try! I have recently started making vlogs for my YouTube channel so if you’re interested in a behind the scenes look at my planning my TBR and blogging etc. then you can check it out here.

Are you participating in the biannual bibliothon? If so, what is on your TBR?

Rapid Fire Book Tag

This is a book tag created by Kate from GirlReading (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-46EzDWdSY). There are a series of book related questions to answer so let’s go:
Q: E-Book or Physical Book?  A: E-book, I know this is a controversial answer but I love my kindle so much! It is light to hold, keeps my page open and tells me an estimate of how much longer I have left in the book which helps motivate me to keep reading.
Q: Paperback or Hardback?  A: I don’t really have a preference!
Q: Online or In-Store Book Shopping?  A: I love shopping in a book store. Being surrounded by books is one of my favourite places. I can look at all of the different books available and choose whichever is available at the time. I often find books that I wasn’t originally planning on buying!
Q: Trilogies or Series? A: I love series because then there are more books to read, as long as the books still continue to be great and there is enough story to last across more books.
Q: Heroes or Villains? A: Heroes but I do l…

Book Buddy Read with Eleanor May

I have wanted to buddy read with someone for a while. Buddy reading is where you and someone else read the same book around the same time and discuss it. However, I didn’t really have anyone who had the same reading tastes as me. I have become good friends with Eleanor from http://www.eleaanormay.com/ and we decided to buddy read!
I am so excited to read a book with her and if any of you want to join in please feel free to. The book we are reading is: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare!
Neither of us have read the Mortal Instruments series before and it is such a popular series. From what I know of this series, it follows teenagers who hunt demons. I was accidentally spoiled with one plot point that occurs later in the story but I am hoping it won’t affect my reading of this book very much. I am really looking forward to discovering this series with a friend.
Have any of you ever done a buddy read?
You can buy City of Bones here: Amazon UK, Audible UK, Amazon US, Audible US, Book Depositor…

Five Things I Learnt From My Internet Detox

I just finished doing 48 hours without internet in aid of Cancer Research UK. Here are the things that I learnt during this time.

1.It is ok to use the internet sometimes 

I often feel bad that I use the internet as much as I do. I think that I should be doing other things instead. However, I have realised that it is ok to use the internet. It is ok to spend time on social media, post things and talk to others, as long as you are not spending too long on there or spending time on social media or accounts that make you feel bad about yourself.

2.Without internet you can relive some good old times
Not having access to internet 24/7 reminded me of when I was younger and we literally did not have access to internet 24/7. We had to spend our time in other ways. The one activity that I spent most of my time doing was playing video games. I used to love spending time playing the same game over and over again and a lot of the games I never even completed because they were too difficult for me bu…
