So if you don’t know the duodecathon is a monthly ReadAThon. There are challenges for this ReadAThon but the cool thing about this one is you have the option to pick from 12 challenges. So there are 12 challenges for the 12 months of the year and the idea is that you participate each month so that by the end of the year you have completed all the challenges!
CHALLENGES TO PICK FROM:
Read 1,200 pages
Start OR finish a series
A 2017 debut author
A short story
A Graphic Novel
A Non-Fiction book
A Book that has been on your TBR for 2+ years
A book with multiple authors
A book you picked up because of the cover
A book that has to do with traveling
Someone else’s favourite book
The first book on your shelf you haven’t read
The ones in bold above have already been completed
As I only started last month I am doing 2 challenges per month to get them all done by the end of the year. So, for this month, I’m choosing A book you picked up because of the cover & A book that has been on your TBR for 2+ years.
I don’t physically own any books that have been on my TBR for more than 2 years that I actually want to read, so I’m choosing The Hobbit as I have wanted to read this since I saw the first movie! I love the movies for this book and can’t wait to finally get to the book.
And this one will be the book I chose for the cover as I basically only bought this for the cover and this isn’t a book I would usually purchase as it is a romance, which I am generally not a fan of. But I am going to read it anyway as I want to get it off my physical TBR and using it for this ReadAThon will mean I do that and it’s not just sitting there for the next year or two.
This is just an extra book as I hope I will be able to get through those first two and still have time left. So I am putting this one on here too. This is a book as I downloaded through the Instafreebie program because it sounds really interesting. I have a lot of books from Instafreebie on my iBooks app as I kinda went a little crazy when I first started getting them and downloaded a heap that sounded interesting and I want to start getting through them!
Also, this ReadAThon ends on the 25th, but I also have the BookTubeAThon that starts on the 24th. So I’m hoping to get these done by the 24th so I can start reading books for that as I’m going to try and push for the Read 7 Books Challenge so I’m going to need all the time I can for the BookTubeAThon.
So that is all for my TBR! Are you participating?? If you are what are you planning on reading?!
