Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR (+ I’M BACK)

Bibliothon

Hello fellow bookworms ☀️ LOOKS WHO’S BACK from the hiatus! It’s me 👍 I will be catching up on comments (sorry guys, I didn’t have a lot of energy/time to answer them, but now I have) and blog hopping (I have bookmarked about 80 posts to read from the past 4 weeks, this is going to take a while) in the next few days! Instead of a traditional Wrapup (which would be super late) I will be talking about the books I read in a “What I’ve been up to” Post next week or so!

Now back to the Readathon! Since I have a lot of time in the next weeks (and will have the entire apartment to myself) I will be participating in the Summer Biannual Bibliothon 🎉 Like the title already says this is a Readathon that takes place twice a year, in summer and in winter. Ever since I saw emmmabooks talk about it (she’s a host, but not for this round) I have wanted to join since there are fun reading challenges and more. This time the Readathon takes place from July 14th – July 20th! You can find the Readathon on Twitter and watch the video below to get to know the challenges and all other important information if you would like to join in!

I could also convince my ultimate Readathon Buddy and fellow blogger Swetlana to join me and I had so much fun planning our TBR’s together, it’s amazing and the Readathon sure will be a lot of fun for us 😍 Make sure to check out her TBR as well!

Hosts for this Bibliothon ☀️

Reading Challenges ☀️

  1. Group book: THE WICKED DEEP
  2. Choose from someone else’s TBR (suggested by @LizzardReads)
  3. Try the first chapter of 3 books and pick 1
  4. Read a book that has been on your TBR for over a year (suggested by @Swizzlemonster1)
  5. Read a predicted 5 star read (suggested by @Shannon23xo)
  6. Own voices – different than YOU
  7. Read the last book you bought (suggested by @MyBookBehaviour)

My Bibliothon TBR ☀️

I adore the Reading Challenges, it’s like they were made for me, so obviously I want to complete as many as possible! Despite having lots of time I’m aiming for 4 books (you’re allowed to double up on the challenges!), because I have a few other things I want to catch up on like Netflix, blogging and writing & I feel like 4 books is the most I’ve ever read in one week. After just getting off university I don’t want to burn myself out with reading. Gladly I was able to choose a lot of great books and I’m excited for all of them! The only challenge I won’t complete is to read the group book, as it’s not on my TBR and it’s not available to me as I don’t want to buy it. Apart from that I really hope to complete as many books and challenges as possible!

Choose from someone else’s TBR

A Court of Mist and Fury (Sarah J. Maas) ☀️ 626 pages

Like all other challenges, I love this one so much, it’s such a cool concept to read from someone elses TBR!! This is a book from one of Swetlana’s TBRs and it was the perfect pick because I’ve been wanting to reread this for a while now! I reread ACOTAR last month and I need to reread ACOMAF to tab my copy and finally write that Review that I still haven’t gotten too! I love this book a lot, so I’m excited to read it again. I also hope I can get through this pretty fast even though it’s long, as it’s a reread. Last time I took my time with this one, but this time I want to devour it

Try the first chapter of 3 books and pick 1

  

Children of Blood and Bone (Tomi Adeyemi) ☀️ 525 pages

Scythe (Neal Shusterman) ☀️ 435 pages

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue (Mackenzie Lee) ☀️ 512 pages

Since Swetlana and I are planning a little something, she choose these three books for me for the Try a Chapter Challenge (again, this challenge is amazing and so perfectly fitting!) and I couldn’t be happier with what she choose! I am very excited for all these books, so I already know that it’s going to be super hard to take my pick after just one chapter. I just want to read all the books now all at once. I’ve been wanting to read all three books since forever and now that I have my own copies, I will get to at least one of them! You can head over to Swetlana’s TBR to see what books I choose for her! (We said to choose personal favorites for the other person and that just makes this so much more special ♥

Own voices – different than YOU & a book that has been on your TBR for over a year

If I was your Girl (Meredith Russo) ☀️ 304 pages

Those two challenges together were perfect for If I was your Girl, because like I mentioned in one of my latest posts, I have been wanting to read this ever since I joined Goodreads (which means two years by now), but have never gotten around to actually reading it! Furthermore, the book is about a trans girl (ownvoices representation) so someone different from me! The best things is that my library has the e-book (in German, but oh well you get what you can) so I don’t have to spend money on it, which is great since I already treated myself to two “exams are over” books!

Read the last book you bought & Read a predicted 5 star read

The Burning Maze (Rick Riordan) ☀️ 452 pages

I HAVE FINALLY BOUGHT THIS!! I adore all things Rick Riordan, so I always buy all his books and I’ve loved every single book he wrote so far. I especially love the Apollo Series, so I was hyped for this new release … but I didn’t buy it on release date like I normally do with Riordan’s books. I hadn’t caught up on the Heroes of Olympus Series (I started this one not knowing it was set after HOO), so I didn’t allow myself to buy it. However, now I’m almost caught up and my exams were over so I finally treated myself (and because this was finally on sale). Therefore this is the last book I bought and I’m so ready to read it! (This challenge is amazing at tackling that physical TBR!)

More books I want to read, but probably won’t get to ☀️

  • The Blood of Olympus (Rick Riordan) ☀️ Predicted 5 Star, on my TBR for over a year ☀️ 502 pages
  • Stars Above (Marissa Meyer) ☀️ Predicted 5 Star, on my TBR for over a year ☀️ 369 pages

 

Are you participating in the Biannual Bibliothon? If so what will you be reading? If not, what are your favorite summer reads? ☀️

    1. Thank you so much, you’re too kind 😭 💕 It’s definitely a challenge, but I’m so excited to read as much as I can! 🙂 I have already heard that the Burning Maze will rip my heart out, I just don’t know how yet, so I’m nervous 😱

  2. Great TBR! You have some good choices there 😊 I just published my TBR for the readathon too. Unfortunately I have a full time job so I had to limit myself on the bigger books. I’ve ended up with 5 books. Fingers crossed I’ll manage that 😊

  3. You obviously already know all the books I plan to read as we were discussing our TBRs as we were coming up with them and I have to say, I’m so excited to get to all the books! And since they are all quite short I really hope I’ll be able to complete all the challenges.

    I’m sorry for picking rather long books for your 3 books tho. xD I didn’t quite think it through apparently but I know you’re a quick reader so you’ll probably fly through whatever you’ll end up reading in its entirety! I already can’t wait to hear all your thoughts! 😀

    AND WELCOME BACK! We were still talking pretty regularly over texts but it’s nice having you back in the blogging world too! ❤

    1. I really hope that we both get to read all the books! The Readathon is nearing now and I’m so excited woooh 😍 I definitely believe that you can complete all the challenges, GO SWETLANA! 👍

      Haha it’s fine 😂 I’m really excited for all the books, so your choices were just the right ones! As I’m super down for all the books I will hopefully read them pretty quickly + I have lots of time on my hands as well! I’ll definitely let you know about all my feelings 🙂

      THANK YOU 💕

    1. Thank you so much Marie 💕 I’m finally on vacation so I’m doing great and can finally fully enjoy the summer 🙂
      Oh my god it will be so hard to choose a book, because I love all of them and want to read them so badly 😱 It will be a very mood based decision 😄 Thank you!! 🙂

  5. Welcome back from hiatus Caro! 😀 And good luck with this readathon as well!
    You have some great books on your list that I really hope you enjoy. I’ve heard good things about The Wicked Deep, it’s actually one on my to-read list, so even though you’re not going to get around to it for this readathon maybe one day if it is made available to you you’ll pick it up and enjoy it. 🙂
    I really hope you love ACOMAF, it’s my favourite of the series so I’ll be looking forwards to seeing what you think of it.
    Great post, and again good luck with this hiatus. 🙂 ❤

    1. Thank you so much Beth! ❤
      I really hope that I will get to all those amazing books! I certainly might give this book a chance if my library bought it sometime, but for now I’m passing on it. The premise did sound interesting though, so I hope you like it!
      I’ve actually read ACOMAF (and I loved it!), so this is a reread, but I haven’t done my Review, so you will get to see that after my reread! 💕

  6. HOW DID YOU RESIST READING THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS!?!?! I GOT IT AND READ IT THE MINUTE IT CAME OUT. XD (That being said, I wasn’t a fan–the only Rick Riordan book I’ve actually disliked to date.) Anyway, I hope you end up loving the first chapter of Children of Blood and Bone so you can continute to read it!!!! ♥

    ALSO CONGRATS ON FINISHING YOUR TESTS!

    1. IT HAS BEEN ON MY TBR FOR A YEAR 😂 I was super not caught up this Series, but at least I’m making progress now! I’ve heard that a lot of people were let down by this Series so I hope that I will not be disappointed as well 😅 Thank you!

      THANKS I’M SO GLAD THEY ARE OVER NOW! 👍

  9. I’m already late to join the Bibliothon so probably not 😦 I’ve been kinda in a reading slump for weeks now so maybe I will get to reading soon. My favorite summer reads has to be contemporaries for sure.
