Today I'm bringing you news of a read-a-thon which will be happening from October 12th until October due to the Teen Reading Week, hence the #. This read-a-thon will be hosted by CC's Books on YouTube, here's the link to her video. I have never participated in a read-a-thon so I thought that this is a great reason to finally participate in one.
As you may or may not know the Teen Reading Week is held in order to encourage Teens to read more because hey reading is awesome just so you know. And, although I'm not a Teen anymore, oh the burden of being 20 and being considered a 'adult' (yeah sure), I still decided to participate and encourage you guys to participate too. Read more books guys!
So, as always there are a few challenges that you can yet do not have to complete.
Challenge Nr.1 - Read a first book in a series.
For this one I chose The Young Elites by Marie Lu. I admit I already started this one so I am fairly hoping to finish it during the Teen Read Week.
Challenge Nr. 2 - Read a second book in a series.
For this one I'm going to go with Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas, which as you guys know I've been trying to read for quite some time now but I just can't sit down and do it so I hope this read-a-thon will finally make me do it.
Challenge Nr. 3 - Read a book you feel like everyone read but you haven't!
Okay, I know for certain that EVERYBODY, and I mean it when I say it, has read the following book, which has also been chillin' on my shelves for way too long, and the book I'm talking about is... Cinder by Marrisa Meyer. Yes I know, I should be ashamed for not having read this one yet. I am, really.
Challenge Nr. 4 - Pick a book from your TBR Jar or if you don't have one, pick one you have simply not read yet.
I don't have a TBR Jar, I don't even know why like I totally should make myself one, so I am simply going to pick one and it's going to be The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. I already read a couple of pages of this one and I'm really intrigued so I guess it's a perfect pick for this read-a-thon.
To be completely honest with you guys, I'll be super surprised if I even manage to finish half of these books, which is why I will not add more books to this TBR. But I still hope that maybe, just maybe, I will have a great reading week and read at least two.
I'm not sure if I will do a daily update but I will try to do it at least every two days. But if you follow me on Twitter, there you'll be able to follow my progress and tweet yours and maybe we could have reading sprints and all that fun stuff. We will be using the #TeenReadsWeek on Twitter.
And that is all. I know school is back on and so is University and all that fun educational stuff, but hey trying to join doesn't cost so why not give it a try?
