#BookTubeAThon 2017 tbr

Hiii readers! I hope you’e having a lovely day! It is the last week in July and you know what that means? The horrific realization that school begins in a month? NO! It’s the annual #BookTubeAThon! Each year, BTAT has daily prompts to read over 7 books in a week. Booktubers can participate in the daily video challenges as well.

But Jill, you say, you aren’t a booktuber!

Yes, sir or ma’am, you are correct. But I am a reader, and a blogger, and as those two things I want to read more in what’s left of July. Y’know, to add to my Goodreads challenge. And crushing my giant tbr pile helps, too. *wink*

So below I’ll be listing the seven daily challenges/prompts for #BTAT17 as well as some brief thoughts on the books. Maybe you’ll join in!

Day 1

Read a book with a person on the cover

(Well, this was easy) Haven by Rebekah Weatherspoon! It it an NA novel set in the woods of NorCal and features a relationship between two people whose lives were quite literally thrust upon each other under horrific circumstances, and are now coping with it together. THAT’S ALL I’LL SAY. I read this book quickly, since I spent 4 hours in a car as of today.


Day 2

Read a hyped book

Warcross by Marie Lu! AH SO I’M READING WARCROSS!! Instead of selling my soul for an ARC, I was able to do an ARC trade and received a copy last week ❤ Warcross is set in the near future and takes places in a video game universe. GIVING ME REAL SWORD ART ONLINE VIBES, mhm I should rewatch that anime while I’m reading. . .

Day 3

Read a book in one day

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire! I don’t know much about this book beside that’s about wayward chidren, contains ace and trans rep, and is very short and can easily be finished in a few hours! So, yeah, pretty excited since literally EVERYONE who recommends a book to me tells me to read EHAD.


Day 4

Read about a character that is different from you

For this, I chose Noteworthy by Riley Redgate! I surprisingly had an issue picking a novel for this prompt, but from what I know, Noteworthy is about (what I’m assuming is a) bisexual singer and while I attempt to sing, I am aromantic asexual and she’s therefore different from me 🙂


Day 5

Read a book outdoors

OKAY, SO I WILL FIGHT SOMEONE ABOUT THIS PROMPT. I’ve been told to read a book “completely outside” now why in the h would I do such a thing? I could read any of the books listed above or below outside and it doesn’t count??? I’m reading Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman. It’s a YA western revenge story set during the California gold rush and I am READY!!


Day 6

Read a cover buy book

I’m reading Dreamology by Lucy Keating! This novel was very popular on bookstagram, and it’s been on my tbr for at least a year and a half, so now I’m finally reading it! ❤ I don’t know much beside a romance based on dream fantasies. . .? Sounds good though!


Day 7 

Read 7 books

I don’t reallyyy know which to put here, I have a few options for books to finish off July so I’ll list them, and who knows, if you read this before July 30, comment below which book you’d like to see me read?

  • Shadowshaper
  • Wildman
  • The Inexplicable Logic of my Life
  • Waste of Space
  • Take the Key and Lock Her Up
  • What to Say Next
  • Hearts, Fingers, and Other Things to Cross
  • Symptoms of Being Human
  • You Know Me Well

These options are so random, and many unknown, but I collected them from my physical shelf and my digital shelf, so if you’ve read/heard any good things, please comment so I can see!

Thanks for stopping by! Are you participating in BookTubeAThon too? Happy reading!

  1. Good luck Jill! For your seventh book, I’d pick What to Say Next. Although that might just be because I haven’t read any of the others. 😂 and I agree, school is too close and it’s horrifying to think about!


  2. You should read The Inexplicable Logic of My Life because it’s AMAZING or You Know Me Well because it’s short and easy to read (I didn’t love it, but it does have stuff going for it)


  3. Good luck on the challenge!! I’m participating too, but not officially/in total line with the prompts. I’m more just using it as motivation to finally get through a large chunk of books on my TBR. 😂
    I’m so jealous you have an arc of Warcross! Everybody I’ve seen who has read it early has said it’s absolutely amazing, and I absolutely can’t wait until it comes out. I hope you enjoy it! ❤


  4. I start school in 2 weeks so I’m really in panic mode 😂 Looks like you have a great TBR for the readathon though, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Warcross! I read Dreamology a year ago and really enjoyed it, I hope you like it! 💕
