The 2015 BookTubeAThon

Do you like read-a-thons? Well, this week I discovered the BookTubeAThon which is a marathon reading challenge lead by Ariel Bissett that started on August 3rd and goes through the 9th and challenges readers to read books that meet 7 different challenges throughout the week (yes you can read one book to meet multiple challenges and there's no limit on how long or short your book has to be). Readers are also encouraged to make daily reading videos throughout the week in order to win fabulous prizes.

You all should know that I like to read and I love a good challenge, but since I just discovered this bookathon and have lost a few days of reading, I doubt I can finish 7 books by Saturday. But here's my hypothetical list of what I would read to attempt to meet the reading challenges.


  1. Read a book with blue on the cover: Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  2. Read a book by an author who shares the same first letter of your last name: Lost at Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley
  3. Read someone else's favorite book: Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac McCarthy
  4. Read the last book you acquired: I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
  5. Finish a book without letting go of it: Locke & Key: Clockworks by Joe Hill
  6. Read a book that you really want to read: The Artists Guide: How to Make a Living Doing What You Love by Jackie Battenfield
  7. Read 7 books: The Road by Cormac McCarthy
