I joined in on Bout of Books 12.0 because it fell during a good time and I wanted to read more than normal. I didn’t read that much more than I usually do, but I did finish one book and one graphic novel. I finished Blog Inc and To Dance, and got further in The Power of Half. I am so close to done with The Power of Half, and I just need to sit down and finish it. I didn’t read as much as I’d planned to, but I got a couple hundred pages read. I am really not that great with readathons, but really want to be more committed to them. The next readathon I participate in I will make sure to commit. Did you participate in Bout of Books?
Day 7 was to show where you’ve read. I have a reason why I didn’t follow through with posting every day of BookTubeAThon. My brother has been playing a lot of games on Xbox which has been using a lot of internet, so my mom and dad told him he needed to shut off the internet. What. Completely not fair, but it is what it is. So I can’t use internet until the 1st of August. I know, I know. That’s a long time, but I will make up for it during August :) So all my posts will be later. I will be doing my BookTubeAThon Wrapup post, my monthly wrapup and TBR, all my reviews, and the Rainbow Readathon TBR. Join me in the Rainbow Readathon and link your posts about it in the comments on any of my posts :) It’s an Instagram challenge so search #rainbowreadathon for the details on that. Oh, and you can tag me in any of your posts on Instagram about it if you’d like. My Instagram name is aubreybrowning. Anywho, the places I read were in my comfy bed, my living room couch, my car, and my living room floor. I don’t have any pictures, but that’s where I read :) Bear with me and my lack of wifi. I’ll be continuing with posts the first day of August.
Todays theme was 5 things from a book you’ve read this week. I picked 5 things from The Giver.
- Red hair – Fury cover (girl with red hair. obviously)
- Apple – ha ha I’m so punny
- A red book – Paper Towns because John Green is PERFECT
- Mom – because his mom is mentioned
- Dad – because is dad is mentioned
I know that people aren’t technically things, but I’m counting it :)
I know, I know. Bad blogger award goes to me. I was out of town yesterday so I didn’t have access to a computer. The struggle is real. But the theme for the fifth day of BookTubeAThon was a rainbow of your favorite books. So… I basically just made a rainbow. A lot of my favorite books are with my friends because I insisted that they read them.
If I would have been using my favorite books The Fault in Our Stars would have been in there. But I have Love, Aubrey for red, City of Glass for orange, Everything on a Waffle for yellow (which is actually one of my favorite books), City of Bones for green, City of Ashes for blue, Shadow Kiss for purple (haven’t even read this one…. oops), and Lock and Key for pink.
Todays challenge for the BookTubeAThon 2014 video/blogging challenge was draw a new cover. I honestly accidentally did this. I was at work and it was really slow because it wasn’t a beautiful day, and I was at the front desk and I just started drawing. I LOVED The Giver so so so so so much. But the reason I didn’t read it before was BECAUSE OF THE COVER. It’s a creepy old guy. That’s it. *see here*
Oh my gosh. I didn’t even think of him like this. The Giver was supposed to be a cool old guy who could see color! Not creepy. Anyway, I drew what I thought would be a pretty cool cover.
The second challenge for the BookTubeAThon video/blog challenges was to find 3 items from 3 covers. I decided to choose Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and a pair of blue jeans, Cinder and a high heel, and Paper Towns and thumbtacks. I know I was supposed to post this yesterday but I was a bad blogger and I hung out with friends who ended up staying the night. Oops, well it happened. :)
Today is the first day of BookTubeAThon 2014 and the first video/blog challenge is 3 Books I Read Because of Booktube. I honestly haven’t read a lot of books because of Booktube… I’ve bought a lot, but that doesn’t mean I’ve gotten around to reading them :)
The only reason I picked up Vampire Academy was because of a bunch of people on Booktube raving about them. I don’t like vampires that much, but I do like these books. I’ve only read Vampire Academy and Frostbite, but I do plan on reading the rest soon. I also read The Shadowhunter’s Codex (mostly because of WhittyNovels). I love The Mortal Instruments series, but I didn’t like this book. It was extremely boring to me. But this concludes this post. Woo for a kind of lame post.
