The Olympic Games Readathon TBR

Readathon has been my way to read more and to challenge myself with finding books that might fit the prompts and also choose a book that I would not pick on my own. I do not have any plan to join any readathon as I am taking things slow in the reading department. However, this readathon has caught my attention and I am shameless to do this. You’ll understand why…😅

The readathon is called The Olympic Games (which you probably know based on the title of this blog) and it is a Percy Jackson themed readathon! And I have never read that series, I know I am shameless. However, according to the host of this readathon, you do not need to read the series to join. So here I am.

This was hosted by Ishi from Ishi Time on YouTube and it will run from June 01 to 30. Basically, this is a month-long readathon. But before getting into the prompts, this readathon has teams based on the gods and goddesses. Each team has different prompts and you can either choose your team or take Rick Riordan’s quiz on “What God are you Descended from?”. I took the quiz thrice and I am in team Aphrodite.

Capture

There are only 5 prompts per team but there are also Advanced Challenges once you finished the given prompts. However, you cannot use one book for different prompts and you can only start the Advance Challenges when you finished the 5 prompts. 

So this intro was already so long so let’s get into my TBR!

Stay Home Reading Rush TBR

It’s been awhile since I last join a readathon. I was still undecided if I should join or not but I found myself searching for books that could match the prompts for this round of the reading rush. And so as not to waste my effort, I finally decided to join.

The reading rush will run from April 16 (Thursday) up to April 19 (Sunday). This is shorter than the normal reading rush but who cares? Just as long as I found a new excuse to read 4 books in 4 days.

I decided to have a wide range of variety for this readathon. My normal genre is mystery/thriller, dystopian, sci-fi and fantasy but this time, I plan to read different genre. I have chosen a horror classics, a YA romance contemporary, middle grade (?) & a New Adult contemporary; and these genres are not something that I usually reach out to and a readathon is a good way to push myself to read these genres.

So here are the prompts for this round:

Now let’s get into the books that I plan to read for this reading rush!

Reading Rush TBR

After my successful Bibliothon, I decided to do the Reading Rush. It’s cool how they have their own website where you can earn badges for accomplishing the challenges, tracked the pages that you read for that day and also meet new bookish friends.

Reading Rush is formerly known as Booktubeathon. The readathon will start from July 22 to July 28, 2019 which is tomorrow on my timezone. Again I am doing this readathon in my own timezone.

Subscribe to their YouTube channel to see the reading challenges and the video challenges if you wanted to join. (Click here to go to their profile.)

There are 7 Challenges for this round:

  1. Book with Purple on the cover
  2. Read a book in the same spot the entire time
  3. Read a book that you meant to read last year
  4. Read an author’s first book
  5. Read a book featuring a non-human character
  6. Pick a book with 5 or more words in the title
  7. Read & watch a book to movie adaptation

And also it is not an actual challenge to read 7 books in a week but you can get a badge if you managed to do that.

So without further ado, here are my TBR for this year’s Reading Rush.

The Final Bibliothon TBR

Ever since I’ve been a fan of bookTube, I have always seen Bibliothon circulating around YouTube but I never succeed in it. I think I tried joining once but I never attempted after that. But now that it is their final bibliothon, of course I am joining.

The Final Bibliothon runs from July 11 to 19. I don’t know if we will be following a certain time zone but I decided to do this in my own time zone.

There are 9 challenges for this final bibliothon and you are only allowed to use one book for two prompts; so if any of you who wants to join, here it is:

  1. Read the group book (Aurora Rising)
  2. Adult Book
  3. Graphic Novel
  4. A book from an author you’ve never read before
  5. A book based on its cover
  6. Free choice/wild card
  7. Read a book you were really excited for, but never picked up
  8. Read a predicted 5-star reads
  9. Read one of the hosts’ 5-star reads

For the last challenge, it is listed in the challenges video for bibliothon so check it out here: Reading Challenges.

So now that all is said and done, let’s get into the TBR.

I’m a big fan of bookTubers and I enjoyed watching their videos. I don’t have a class because I already graduated from the university and I’m still looking for a job, I have time to read, read and read. Sadly I’m not reading as much as I want to. So I’m joining this Readathon so I can read more books!

There are 7 challenges that we need to complete. 1 book can be used to accomplish 2 challenges. The bibliathon will start from July 3 to July 9. In my country, it will start at July 4, 3PM.
