Books TBR

Winter Biannual Bibliothon 2019 TBR

January 12, 2019

I participated in the Biannual Bibliothon last year and failed spectacularly. I'm going to give it a go again this year but I have exams around the dates this still so I'm not sure how I'm going to get on reading this time too! This particular Read-A-Thon is hosted by some of my favourite bookish people. Head to the Biannual Bibliothon Instagram for a full list of hosts and Video/Blog/ Insta challenges.

This read-a-thon is running from the 12th to the 18th January.

This rounds reading challenges are as follows:

1. Read the Group Book Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean

2. Read one of the hosts' 5 star reads:

Pivot Point by Kasie West

Eliza and her Monsters by Franchesca Zappia

Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Emergency Contact by Mary HK Choy

3. Read a book that got you into reading

4. Read an adult genre

5. Combine your favorite genre with your least favorite format or the opposite

6. Read a book with a cover you don't like

7. Read a book by an author you've never read before

And you can double up on challenges too!

1. Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean

I've seen the Empress of all Seasons around for a little bit but I wasn't entirely sure what it was about. Seeing that it was the group book I checked out the synopsis and oh my I'm excited to read this one. Any time I see a book with any form of Asian inspiration I get excited as its a topic I always want to know more about. From every area of Asia, and every time period. I think I might start with this one. It qualifies for reading the group book and for an author I've never read before.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf

I've had this graphic novel for a little while and when the film adaptation came out it renewed my interest in the book. I don't tend to read a great deal of non-fiction despite having a fair bit. It's not that I don't like the genre, I just tend to gravitate towards other things. But I adore graphic novels. So this qualifies for the read a book in a genre you don't like, in a format you love and also for the author I've never read before!

Vox* by Christina Dalcher

This was one of the books Sam picked out for me to read and as you can see I haven't got to it....or any of them yet. Despite the fact that the plot really intrigues me. Women only having an allotted 100 words a day to use in this dystopian novel. This book fits in with the read an adult genre prompt, again an author you've never read before and also a cover you're not a fan of (at least for me).

You can find the Goodreads page here.

If I should Die by Amy Plum

I don't have the ability to reread books at the moment. My TBR just won't allow it. That and the books that got me into reading are either in my loft or I passed them onto new homes and don't want to rebuy them. However, I have one book left in a trilogy that I adored. Years ago I started the Revenants trilogy and never finished it. It's set in Paris with the most swoon worthy characters. So I figured I'd fudge this challenge a little and read a trilogy that got me into reading.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Pivot Point by Kasie West

Finally on my ambitious TBR is Pivot Point. The book I chose to read from the list of 5* picks. The others I'd either read, didn't think would suit me, or were hugeeee. I really liked the premise of Pivot Point when I read it, it's very different to anything I'd read before and have been thinking about picking up a Kasie West book for a while. This book was for the 5* reads challenge but also fits with a cover you don't like and an author you've never read before.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

That's my TBR for the Biannual Bibliothon.

What are you planning to read?

Any of these?

Thank-you for reading,

Katie x
