Booktube-A-Thon wrap-up (and more fun stuff!)

Soooo… I made it! I still can’t believe I managed to complete all challenges in those seven days. It was my second time participating, and my first time accomplishing those goals.

I’m writing this post to thank Ariel Bisset for making this readathon happen, and to everyone who logged onto the booktube-a-thon account to run sprints and motivate us to read more. This was such a fun event and I can’t wait until I participate again next year. In this post I also wanted to do a little wrap-up, do seven mini-reviews (because apparently reading for seven days non-stop wasn’t enough of a challenge!) and tell you a little about my experience.

synopsis flower

“Hello. I hope somebody is listening.”

And so begins this incredibly precious novel written by the lovely Alice Oseman about a boy stuck at university following a path he’s not passionate about, a girl described as a “study machine”, and how art and creativity binds these two.

Radio Silence follows Aled, the shy genius creator of an insanely popular podcast on Youtube of the same title, and Frances, the brainy girl who excels at academia and posts her art online for the world to see. Against all odds these two lovable teenagers meet and their friendship develops over the art each one of them create, and post, anonymously online.

Booktube-A-Thon Reading List (TBR)

The best week of the reading year starts tomorrow! If you’re not familiar with the Booktube-A-Thon it’s a week-long readathon (a reading marathon!) hosted by Ariel Bissett and it will take place from July 24th to July 30th.

Every year there are three kinds of challenges: seven reading challenges, instagram challenges, and video challenges. You don’t have to complete all seven challenges, you just need to have fun!

This is my second attempt at the Booktube-A-Thon, and like last year I’m going to try and complete all seven reading challenges, while tracking everything I read. This is honestly one of my favorite times of the year, and I can’t wait to hear from you whether or not you’re also participating, and which books are on your TBR.

Books Without Romance (T5W)

This week’s topic is a hard one. We’re supposed to come up with a list of five books that don’t have any romance in it, or at least the romance must be barely noticeable.

Being a sucker for love and relationships, it was kind of hard gathering five books that didn’t have any of that sweet, cute and adorable action, but I was able to find enough books for this list!

Top Five Wednesday

As always, Top Five Wednesday is a weekly tag hosted by Sam — who has a booktube channel — and anyone can join whenever they feel like it!

Books I Want to Read this Summer

Before I get to the list of the books I’m dying to read this summer I’d like to say that I’m finally back and ready to blog! I haven’t posted anything in a little under three and a half months, and my only excuse is that I was very busy with school and on a big reading slump I’m only now getting over. But now that I have no deadlines looming over my head, I can finally put my heart into this community once again!

What Women’s Day Means to Me

Oh March, how much I love you. Spring starts showing up slowly, temperatures start to rise, the sun comes out more often and it’s time for Women’s Day. If you follow me on social media or know me in real life, you’ll not be shocked by my undying love for this special day. After all, I’m a proud intersectional feminist, so of course I’ll love a day dedicated to the fights for Feminism, both past and current.

In today’s post, I’d like to share with you what this date means to me and would love to hear your opinions on the matter.

By the way, this post will stray from my usual content: books. If you’d like to skip this one out, go ahead, I’ll be back posting about books soon.
