BookTube-A-Thon Day #3

 

During the week of July 15th – 21st I will be participating in the BookTube-A-Thon. I know this is meant to be for Booktubers, but I’m going to do it anyway even though I’m not a Booktuber.

This challenge was created by Ariel at Ariel Bissett and Raeleen at padfootandprongs07 on youtube.

 

For this reading challenge I am going to read:

1. The Night Circus 201/519 pages

2. Coraline 162/162 pages

3. Mockingjay 455/455 pages

4. The Bat 69/374 pages

5. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (Audio Book) Done!

6. Pride & Prejudice 104/368 pages

 

Today I started two books, The Night Circus and Pride & Prejudice. It took me longer time to read this far in Pride & Prejudice than I expected, but I’m really enjoying the book so far. When I started reading it I just wanted to watch the movie with Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet and Matthew Macfadyen as Mr. Darcy, which is my favorite version.

The Night Circus is going well. I’m little bit confused about all the characters and how to chapters are divided. I didn’t know anything about the book before I started, other than it’s supposed to be really good. Hopefully it will be.

 

Pages read today: 305 pages

I just finished Mockingjay. I have no idea why I didn’t read it when I read the first two books a year ago. I have seen bad reviews and people didn’t like it as much as the other ones. But I really like it. Maybe it was the gap between the reading time that made me appreciate it more?
It is a lot different from the first two books, that mainly revolves about survival. But this book shows you the effect the government can have on everyone and the corruption.

BookTube-A-Thon Day #1

During the week of July 15th – 21st I will be participating in the BookTube-A-Thon. I know this is meant to be for Booktubers, but I’m going to do it anyway even though I’m not a Booktuber.

This challenge was created by Ariel at Ariel Bissett and Raeleen at padfootandprongs07 on youtube.

The first day of BookTube-A-Thon is over. It is little bit over midnight when I’m writing this.

For this reading challenge I am going to read:

1. The Night Circus 0/519 pages

2. Coraline 162/162 pages

3. Mockingjay 85/455 pages

4. The Bat 69/374 pages

5. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (Audio Book) Done!

6. Pride & Prejudice 0/368 pages

I think that I had too high expectations for Coraline by Neil Gaiman when I started reading it. It wasn’t as scary as when I read it years ago.

The Statistical Probably of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith was really good. It was a sweet and easy read (listen).

It has been a while since I read the first two books in the Hunger Games trilogy so it took my a while to get back into it and remember how things ended in the second book.

Today went well. I read 316 pages and listened to a whole audiobook. Go me!

I will be back tomorrow with a new update.

Love, Diljá

Reading Challenge #1

 

During the week of July 15th – 21st I will be participating in the BookTube-A-Thon. I know this is ment to be for Booktubers, but I’m going to do it anyway even though I’m not a Booktuber.

This challenge was created by Ariel at Ariel Bissett and Raeleen at padfootandprongs07 on youtube. It consists of 7 challenges:

 

1. Read 300 pages per day

2. Read a book with 500+ pages

3. Re-read a book

4. Finish a series or a trilogy

5. Read a book that has been on your shelf the longest

6. Listen to an audiobook

7. Read a classic

 

I’m not sure if I will be able to do the first challenge, due to lack of time, but I’m going to try my best.

For the second challenge I will be reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, 519 pages.

For the third challenge I will be re-reading Coraline by Neil Gaiman, 162 pages

For the fourth challenge I will be reading Mockingjay, the third and last book in the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, 455 pages.

For the fifth challenge I will be reading The Bat by Jo Nesbø, 374 pages.

For the sixth challenge I will be listening to The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, 5:17:44 (236 pages).

And for the seventh and final challenge I will be reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, 368 pages.

 

If I finish all these book and read about 300 pages a day it should take me about six days to complete them.

 

I will be doing a daily update on how I’m doing and hopefully there will be reviews of the books up in the following week.
