SimsAThon/October TBR

This month I am participating in 2 ReadAThons! SimsAThon is a month long ReadAThon themed around the Sims game which takes place for the entirety of October & I’m also participating in MateAThon but I will have a dedicated TBR for that one coming soon.
So let’s jump into the SimsAThon TBR first!

Choose A Household: Read a book from later in a series

This is the 28th book in the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie, so it’s definitely later in the series!

Build a House: Read something set in another world

This is a YA standalone fantasy set in the Kingdom of Achra!

Perfect the Layout: Read a book with an interesting format

I plan to reread the whole The Illuminae Files series via audiobook this month. I have read the whole series & also reread Illuminae & Gemina via audiobook but I want to reread Obsidio via audiobook. So I am rereading the whole series. Illuminae is also written as a dossier of documents, so it fits the challenge well!

Interior Design: Read a book with a pretty cover

I love this cover and I have been meaning to read it for a while! This one I will be listening to as an audiobook.

Live Mode

Fall in Love: Read a book with a romance element

I don’t usually deliberately choose romance books but this one sounds like an interesting Sci-Fi book but also has romance. So hopefully it isn’t too over the top!

Reach the top of your Career Track: Read a finale

This is the last book in the Fallen Isles Trilogy and I can’t wait to get to this one!

Take a bubble bath: Read a book over 400 pages

This is the last book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series and I can’t wait for this one either! I’m a little nervous as I didn’t love an element in Escaping the Houdini but I’m hoping I will love this one as much as I love Stalking Jack the Ripper & Hunting Prince Dracula.

Get Married: Read a book with an established couple

This one features a couple that is established in one of the previous books and I already wanted to read it, so it fits perfectly!

Pay Bills: Read your most recent purchase

My most recent purchase was of the 3 Exclusive Collector’s Editions of the US Shades of Magic series. So out of those 3 I only have A Conjuring of Light left to read, so that is the one I will be reading for this challenge!

Astronaut: Read a book set in space

This is set on another planet, so close enough to space. This is Volume 4 of The Woods.

Athlete: Read a book featuring sports

This one is pretty self explanatory. A graphic novel featuring fencing.

Business: Read a book with a number in the title

The Woods: Vol 5! Another self explanatory one as the number 5 is in the title.

Criminal: Read a Thriller

This is a Thriller that was being hyped up around release and I have been curious about since! So I’m keen to get to the audiobook of this one.

Painter: Read a book with a colourful cover

This is another Graphic Novel that I have been keen to get to and it has a colourful cover, so it fits the challenge!

Secret Agent: Read a mystery book

For this challenge I will just be listening to the next book in the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie. Whichever one that is!

Style Influencer: Read a hyped book

When everyone was hyping this book I said to myself that I would not read it as I was quite frankly just sick of hearing about it. Then when I was looking for books for my TBR I was scrolling down my saved audiobooks on Scribd and this one was there, so I decided to give it a go.

Tech Guru: Read a futuristic book

Wildcard is the sequel to Warcross which is a futuristic sci-fi gaming type book and I’m keen to get to it except that I really hope the romance that was present in Warcross does not come up in this one.

Writer: Read a book by a new-to-you author

This is another audiobook I want to listen to and I can’t wait to get to it.

Then there was also these challenges but I haven’t chosen any books for these just yet.

Other books on my TBR!

Harry Potter Edition ✨ Fantasy JourneyAThon TBR

So Fantasy JourneyAThon starts in 2 minutes as I’m writing this sentence. Originally I planned to film a TBR video for my Channel but It has been a crazy couple days and I just haven’t had the time to film & edit! Now the ReadAThon has started and my TBR still isn’t up, so here it is!

Fantasy JourneyAThon Announcement

Firstly I am on Team Gryffindor and I will be earning points throughout the week by participating in the Instagram & Litsy Challenges as well as reading!

My TBR

Read a book with a bird on the cover

This is the second book to Legend by Marie Lu, which I haven’t actually read. I planned to read it before the ReadAThon but haven’t got there. So I will also be aiming to read Legend this book!

Read a book with witches/wizards

This is of course a reread for me and I can’t wait. I’ve been really enjoying my physical reread of this series!

Read a book with scarlet on the cover

This one is an audiobook that I have had on my TBR for way too long! Finally picking it up and fulfilling this challenge!

Read a book with a tree on the cover

This one has a whole Wood on the cover, so I think it fits. This is Volume 1 in a new to me Graphic Novel series and I can’t wait to dive in!

Read a book under 300 pages

This is the other Graphic Novel I have in my TBR and I’m keen for this one too! It’s also super short so fits this challenge!

Read a book with a beautiful cover

This one definitely fits this challenge as this cover is beautiful! This is a cover read for sure as I know nothing about this book! This one is also an audiobook I will be listening to.

Read a book with a dark theme

I don’t know much about this one but I have it on my physical TBR and it looks super dark and creepy!

Read a book with multiple POV or Authors

This is my next audiobook and this is an anthology. So not only does it have multiple POV but it also has multiple Authors!

Read a book with magic

This is the last audiobook on my tbr! I keep hearing good things about this one and apparently it has magic, so I’m in!

Read a book set in the real world

This one I need to read for a Blog Tour which is happening soon, so I chose it for this challenge! It is set in our world so it fits this challenge!

Beat the Bingo ReadAThon TBR!

So, I’ve been extremely inactive on my blog lately. Between Biannual Bibliothon, MedievalAThon & The Reading Rush I have been super busy & next month is probably going to be the same. I will be participating in NEWTs Edition of Magical ReadAThon (Month long), Beat the Bingo ReadAThon (Month long) & the Harry Potter Edition of Fantasy JourneyAThon (10th – 19th)!

Beat the Bingo ReadAThon is taking place over in the Facebook Group The YA Book Nerds which I run. You can join the group HERE!

I have chosen books for all the challenges except for the ‘Previous YA Book Nerds BOTM’ because as the organiser of the group I have read all the Group Books as I was the one that choose them & made the discussion questions. So I’ve just left this as a free choice for myself.

Reread a Favourite

Read a book with a blue cover

Listen to an Audiobook

Read a fantasy book

Read a book with a plant on the cover

Read a Sci-Fi

Read a Graphic Novel

Read a book with multiple POV

Read a Diverse Book

Read a book with gold on the cover

Read the Group Book

Read a Dystopian Book

Read a book set in the future

Read a book with red on the cover

Read a mystery book

Read a book by an Author of colour

Read an Own Voices book

Read a 2019 release

Read a book over 300 pages

Read a Historical Book

Read a book with yellow on the cover

Read a Middle Grade book

My TBR is a bit ambitious but I tried to choose a decent amount of Graphic Novels & Audiobooks! There are 14 books, 7 Audiobooks & 3 Graphic Novels! So fingers crossed I can complete as many as possible!

Have you read any of these books? Did you love them? Hate them? Let me know!
Also, let me know if you’re participating as well!

The Fantasy AdventureAThon TBR

This ReadAThon runs from 25th to 31st of March and I am so keen! So the basics of this ReadAThon is to start at the bottom of the map & make your way up! So I will leave the map & the prompt meanings below. You can also check out all the details HERE!

Also I am in Team Mermaid!

Team #FantasyMermaid

Credit for the above images is Novel Thoughts.

My TBR

So I will not be aiming for all the challenges but I will explain that as I go!

Fellowship

Read the Group Book

This is the first challenge I will not be completing as I have already read the group book which is A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab!

Cliff

Read a book with a nature word in the title

The Storm Keeper’s Island by Catherine Doyle

Rat

Read a book with brown on the cover

The Wicked + The Divine: Vol 5 by Gillen McKelvie & Wilson Cowles

Fate

Read a book set in the past

Beastly Bones by William Ritter

Bewilderment

Read a book with a plot twist

This is the other challenge I will not be doing as I found it super hard to figure out what books have a plot twist that I own. All the lists I found online where older books that I had either read or didn’t own and I was not going out to buy a book just for this challenge. So SKIP!

Adventure

Read the first book in a a series

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Birgid Kemmerer

Potion

Read a book while drinking a drink

The Wicked + The Divine: Vol 6 by Gillen McKelvie & Wilson Cowles

So that is everything on my TBR! I’m so keen for this ReadAThon as its been a while since I participated in a ReadAThon with prompts.

2018 Winter Biannual Bibliothon TBR

Christmas Header Image (10)

You guys are going to get 2 TBRs in 1 day as I am doing this TBR and my normal monthly TBR for Jan! But oh well! There is just so much going on lately!

So the Winter Biannual Bibliothon is going from the 20th till 26th of Jan. For all the info about it including links, video challenges and anything else I could find, please check out my ReadAThon guide for Jan as I go into full details and I’m not going to do it again here!
ReadAThon Guide – Jan 2018



Christmas Blog Title (47)

1. Read the group book
2. Read a sequel
3. Read a book that you have never heard of before
4. Read a book about mental illness
5. Read a book that was mentioned in another book/movie/TV Show
6. Read a book under 200 pages
7. Read a backlist book

You can use 1 book for up to 2 challenges, I am going to pick 7 individual books for the 7 challenges, however when it gets to the ReadAThon and I’m running behind I might do some doubling up!



Christmas Blog Title (48)

Untitled-1

Otherworld is the Group Book for the WBB, so obviously I will be reading it.

86882a9bae9aa4d03df8be1540b515b3

This one is for Read a sequel. This book could also be used for the Read a backlist book, if I choose to double up when the ReadAThon comes.

81vL4z7n7IL

This is for the challenge Read a book that you have never heard of before.
So to find this book I went to Scribd, which if you don’t know is a monthly subscription service where you pay a certain amount and get 3 eBook credits and 1 audiobook credit a month. So all I did was go on Scribd, go into the Fantasy section and have a look at some of the books that came up and this is what I chose. I went through a fair few before choosing this one but they either had bad reviews or sounded very romance based.

TROUJLH

This is for the challenge Read a book with mental Illness.
So I’m not actually 100% sure if this book deals with mental illness but it came up in a list of mental illness books and I own it. So I chose it.

a9c2e68970c443607298600f5613d8ec

So, I couldn’t think of any off the top of my head that I hadn’t already read, so I just googled it and found an awesome discussion post on Goodreads as this same prompt was one of the prompts in 2017 Advanced PopSugar Reading Challenge. So that was handy! You can find that HERE if you need some help! I choose Alice as it was listed a couple times as mentioned in different books! I also thought afterwards that an easy book for this could be either Quidditch Through the Ages, The Tales of Beedle the Bard or Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as they are all mentioned in the Harry Potter books obviously!!

25526296 (1)

This is for the challenge Read a book under 200 pages. According to Goodreads, this is over 200 but according to the copy I have, it is under. So it counts!

9781780873145 (2)

This is for the challenge Read a Backlist book. They are counting any book released prior to 2017 as backlist. So this definitely counts as it was released in 1996, it is literally older than me!



Well, that is my TBR! I’m pretty confident about it as 3 of the books at least are pretty short. It will be a total of 1,905 pages if I read all of these. That was calculated using the goodreads page counts for each book as some are eBooks, some physical and some I haven’t received yet. So using the Goodreads page count was easier.

Are you participating in the Winter Biannual Bibliothon?! Let me know in the comments! And let me know what you plan to read for it!
