Biannual Bibliothon, Readathons

Readathon | Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR

Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR

Biannual Bibliothon is a readathon hosted by a lot of booktubers and I’ve always wanted to participate in it but never actually did. All the informations about the readathon can be found on their official Youtube channel and Twitter. The readathon starst at midnight on July 23rd and ends on July 29th which means we have 7 days to read non-stop. And that’s exactly how I want to spend the entire summer, not just that week.

Every readathon has something special to it and with Biannual Bibliothon it’s the group book. Alongside 6 other reading challenges, the hosts also pick a book which all of the participants read and there is a liveshow dedicated to that book after the readathon is over. I mentioned challenges, didn’t I? Here are all 7 challenges:

Summer BIBIB challenges

The group book challenge is pretty much self-explanatory and so are the most of other challenges. For the challenge to read a book from the host’s favorite genre I decided to go with Emma’s favorite – diverse books because it’s the genre I really enjoy but rarely pick up for not particular reason. For the throwback challenge I chose to read a book set in a foreign country and I also extended this challenge a bit for myself. For this one I must not read a book set in either US, UK or Croatia. I’m from Croatia so technically US and UK would count as foreign to me but I decided that’s too easy and that I must choose something different. When it comes to the challenge to read and watch a book to movie adaptation, I don’t think I’m going to fully complete it. I will read a book that’s been adapted to the movie but I doubt it that I will actually watch the movie. I pretty much hate watching book to movie adaptations because I always end up disappointed and it ruins the book for me as well. So I’ll probably skip the watching part.

Okay, enough about the challenges. What I plan to read during the week? I chose 5 books to fit these challenges and I hope I’ll be able to get to all of them.

Summer BIBIB TBR

THE LORD OF THE FLIES by William Golding

I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since we discussed it in English class last year and when I realised it fit two challenges here, I knew I had to put it on my TBR.

  • read a book that has been or still is banned
  • read & watch a book to movie adaptation
THE FLAME IN THE MIST by Renee Ahdieh

This one is pretty obvious since it’s the group book and I pretty much have to read it. The only problem is that I still don’t have a copy of it and I don’t know if and when I’m going to get it. But I’m optimistic.

  • read a group book
THE LAW OF MOSES by Amy Harmon

This one hasn’t been sitting on my shelf for a long time but I’m still apprehensive about picking it up even though I’ve heard some great things about it. The only time I’ve heard anyone talk about this book was on Facebook on one of the bookish pages but that’s it. I have heard people talking about Amy Harmon and her other books but never this one.

  • read a book you’ve seen somewhere other than booktube
THE FORGOTTEN GIRLS by Sara Blaedel

This is another book that hasn’t been on my bookshelf for long and I want to read it before I lose interest in it. It’s set in Denmark which makes it perfect for this readathon and it’s also quite short and I believe I can read it in one sitting.

  • throwback challenge – read a book set in a foreign country
GIRL MANS UP by M-E Girard

I was going through my audiobooks and was trying to find a book that fits some of the challenges and I saw this one and immediately knew this is the book I’ll be listening to during the readathon.

  • read a book from the host’s favorite genre – diverse books
  • read an LGBTQIA+ book

  1. Awesome TBR! You already know what I’m reading and that I have read Flame in the Mist haha
    I need to add Girl Mans Up to my tbr! I keep seeing it mentioned and it sounds pretty good. I have heard a few negatives about it though, but I will have to see when I eventually get to it.
