Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR 2016

It’s that time of year again, where all of the readathons happen in a short space of time! I have only just found the challenges and dates for this readathon, which just goes to show how I’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks (considering I knew I wanted to participate this year and had been keeping an eye out (or so I thought) for the dates). I have tweaked one of the challenges slightly, but other than that, here is my TBR. If you want to find out more then click here.

Read The Group Book – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.

I want to read this anyway, though if I’m honest I would prefer to save this for my holiday later in the summer as Morgan Matson’s books are perfect for hot sunny days. This will be possibly the last one I pick up therefore, if I even get through them all (which I doubt).

Free Choice / Wild Card BookMoonstone by Sjón

I desperately want to read this and it’s super short. I only received it for review a few days ago but it looks so interesting, I can’t wait to pick it up.

Read a Book Off of the Host’s List of Recommendations 

Okay, this is the one I’m changing slightly as I don’t own any of the books on the list and I don’t really want to buy any more at the moment unless I can get them for a good price on kindle. However the one I would most like to read (More Happy Than Not) is not available for kindle (at least I can’t find it listed on amazon) and so instead I plan on reading Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick, as there is a Matthew Quick novel on the list!

Read a Book With Your Favorite Mythical Creature A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

When I was deciding which book for this challenge I realised two things: one, I don’t have a particular favourite mythical creature and two, I have very few books that I know to include them. However, this fits the title as (I believe) it is about fairies and I really want to get around to reading it very soon. (This can also be used for the challenge about reading an author you haven’t read before).

Read a Book You’ve Been Putting Off Picking Up Soundless by Richelle Mead

I really wanted to read this when I first got it, however since then I’ve heard more and more negative reviews and have been putting it off. I would like to find out for myself what it is like though, so I do plan to eventually get around to picking it up.

Read a Book from an Author You’ve Never Read Before – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

This can also count for one I’ve been putting off, though I’m not sure why. It looks fabulous and unique and I definitely plan to get to the whole trilogy this summer.

Read a Book in a Different Format than You Usually Read Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

I’ve heard so many amazing things about this graphic novel and I still haven’t picked it up yet, despite having it for a fairly long time. It looks like something I’ll enjoy so I hope that I get around to reading this.

I don’t know how many books I’ll get to during the readathon (between 3rd-9th July) but I’m hoping for three as I have a lot of things to get sorted and there are 2,250 pages in total. Are you participating in this readathon? I’d love to know your TBR if you are!

Rainbowthon 2.0 TBR 2016

For those of you who don’t know, the Rainbowthon is a readathon hosted by several booktubers (link to the announcement video here). The idea is to pick a TBR where the spines make a rainbow (indigo and violet are just counted as purple, thankfully!) or there is the option of picking six books with the same colour spines. I participated in the first one which was around summer, and I really enjoyed it. It runs February 7-14th.

Red: Prisoner of Night and Fog – Anne Blankman

Orange: Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke – Anne Blankman

Yellow: How to Build a Girl – Caitlin Moran

Green (ish): The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath

Blue: The Chimes – Anna Smaill

Purple: Shadow and Bone – Leigh Bardugo

It’s not the best rainbow, but never mind! I hope to read around two or possibly three of these, starting with the ones that are on my TBR for this moth. Are you participating? What do you plan to read?
