BookTube-A-Thon TBR

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And even though this marathon is meant for booktubers only, I'm thinking that I'll give it a try (not the video challenges, but the challenges with which I have to read these books.
And I've bought a bucket worth of books this month, so I might get to read those sooner, rather than later.

I am aware that this booktube-a-thon has already started, so I better list these books and start reading!

1. Read a book with a person on the cover.
Chosen book: Songs About A Girl (Songs About A Girl #1), by Chris Russell
If you've been here a while, I read this book last September, and absolutely loved it. And now, I have the sequit el! And I need to re-read the first, purely because I loved it so much! (And it has a person on the cover, so that works).

2. Read a hyped book.
Chosen book: Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2), by Leigh Bardugo
This is a book that I was going to read next month, but it looks like I'll be reading it sooner than I expected! This is something I've been wanting to pick up since I bought it about six months ago. I am also including Six of Crows for another challenge which I think I'm going to read first because, duh, but hopefully I might be able to finish both!

3. Finish a book in one day.
Chosen book: One of Us Is Lying, by Karen M. McManus
I chose this book because 1)It's approx. 350 pages, so it's pretty short, and 2)because it looks super interesting. If you didn't know, this is a story based on the breakfast club...
(Except somebody dies...)

4. Read about a character that is very different from you.
Chosen book: Northern Lights (His Dark Materials #1), by Philip Pullman (this is set in the Arctic mostly, which is how it differs). I'm thinking that I'll complete this first, because I'm already working on this for my bookclub on Thursday.

5. Finish a book completely outdoors.
Even though this is quite fluid, and I haven't decided yet what to read outside, (I'm thinking I'll save this for later, so I can decided later), but the front runner is All That She Can See, by Carrie Hope Fletcher, because it just seems like the cutesy, sweet (she bakes) book that would be perfect for finishing outside. Anybody else read this book lately?

6. Read a book you bought because of the cover.
Chosen book: Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1), by Sara Raasch
Funny enough, I actually struggled with this one, because I haven't impulsively bought a book because of the cover for ages.
But, last time I read this book, I didn't love it as much as I thought.
But I'm giving it another chance.

7. Read seven books.
Chosen book: Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1), by Leigh Bardugo.
As I said when I was talking about Crooked Kingdom, I'm reading this to refresh my memory about what happened in the first book, so I can delve straight into the second and final book in the duology. The first book is able seven notorious villains, all with some special skills of their own, sent on an impossible heist.
And they might just do that- if they kill each-other first.

Even though you are allowed to overlap these challenges, the aim is to complete all seven challenges. And even though I might (very small might) be able to do just that, I still want to assign seven books.
All through this week I will be doing updates, so if you aren't interested in this booktube-a-thon, you've been warned!

So that is my post for today, I hope you have a good day and a wonderful reading day, and I will be seeing you on Wednesday!
Keep smiling!
