BookTubeAThon Day 1

#BookTubeAThon Day 1

It's BookTubeAThon time again!

Book Vloggers are joining together this week for the reading frenzy that is BookTubeAThon. The challenge runs from 30th July through to 5th August. 

I love this readathon! I'm not sure I'll be able to take part in all the daily challenges as we're in the middle of decorating at the moment but I'll be doing the ones I can as they're always a lot of fun to do.

The main challenges this year are:

1) Let a coin toss decide your 1st book to read
2) Read a book about something you've always wanted to do
3) Read and watch a book/film adaption
4) Read a book with green on the cover
5) Read a book whilst wearing the same hat the whole time
6) Read a book with a beautiful spine
7) Read 7 books

I got a bit behind and so I'm late posting my TBR for this challenge but better late than never right? ;) 

Here's my TBR video:

Books mentioned:

Remembering What I Forgot

  1. I won't be able to join this BookTubeAThon this year, but if this is one that happens annually, I might be able to do so next year. ;)

    1. BookTubeAThon happens every year around this time of year so you'll definitely be able to join in next year. There's a Christmas version of it too. There's lots of other readathons throughout the year too.

  2. I am doing my reading in front of a fan too! England is not meant to be this hot! The rain is just supposed to be warmer lol. You are a reading machine! Nice one. :)

    1. Yeah I heard England is having a heat wave too. At least we're used to it here. I know every year July/August is too hot.

      I'm really pleased with how the challenge is going so far. I've read some great books this week.

  3. I haven't ventured into BookTubing but this looks fun - glad you are taking part!

    1. I love Booktube. It's such a friendly community.

  4. I haven't read any of these, so I'll be sure to listen to your reviews!

  5. These looks like a lot of fun! I still haven’t tried to master the video blog - maybe one day! You make it look easy 😉

    1. The big secret is to not take yourself too seriously and just be natural. It's actually much easier than you think once you get out of your own way ;)

  6. Great videos. Can't stand being in front of the camera so this wouldn't be for me.

    1. When I started out I was always worried about how I came out on video. Strangely once I relaxed and just enjoyed it, I got a lot better at doing it.

  7. BookTubeAThon? That is a new concept to me.

    1. I've been taking part for a couple of years now and it's always a lot of fun. You should join us next year :)
