“Aubrey, where have you been?” Well. I’ve been lazy and at home along with two weeks of band camp, but I’ve had no internet. We had Verizon for our internet provider and then halfway through the month all our data got used but we had no idea why. So my mom called the Verizon store and cancelled our internet. I thought we would have it back by the beginning of August, like my mother said, but no. Of course that didn’t happen. So, I haven’t been intentionally neglecting my blog, I promise. Now for the wrapup :) For BookTubeAThon I read 5 books! I’m honestly really proud of myself. I mean I know you were supposed to read 7, but I got 5 finished. I read The Giver (The Giver Quartet #1) – Lois Lowry, The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events #2) – Lemony Snicket, Gathering Blue (The Giver Quartet #2) – Lois Lowry, The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald, and finally Messenger (The Giver Quartet #3) – Lois Lowry. I loved being able to participate in BookTubeAThon! It was so much fun :) I plan to do it again next summer. Thank you to all of you who have stuck around for the last couple of weeks in my wifi-free time ;) It means a lot to have this big of an audience :)
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. :)
