Recently I participated in the Biannual Bibliothon, it’s a one week readathon that happens twice a year and is hosted by some of my favorite BookTubers. This was my first time participating and I had so much fun. As I am not a BookTuber, I only did the reading challenges. The readathon ran from July 3rd to July 9th. I had so much fun participating in this and I already can’t wait for the winter one!!
Originally I was only planning on only doing five challenges and reading four books.
These were the reading challenges:
1. Read The Group Book – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
2. Free Choice/ Wild Card Book
3.Read a Book Off of the Host’s List of Recommendations
-Momo’s Choice – The Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1…

4. Read a Book With Your Favorite Mythical Creature
5. Read a Book You’ve Been Putting Off Picking Up

I was originally only planning on doing challenges 1, 2, 5, 6 and 7. However, I ended up being able to complete all the reading challenges. Here is what I read:
Challenges 1 and 6: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. This was the first book I had ever read by Morgan Matson.
Challenge 2: Red Queen by Christina Henry. This book was an eArc, and it was dark, deep and twisted.
Challenge 3: Meagan’s choice which was The Archived by Victoria Schwab
Challenge 4: Alice in Wonderland: Deluxe Complete Collection Illustrated: Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, Through The Looking Glass, Alice’s Adventures Under Ground And The Hunting Of The Snark by Lewis Carroll.
Challenge 5: Finding Paris by Joy Preble
Challenge 7: Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse
I participated too. It was so much fun 🙂 I only got to read two full books. But I think that is fine for my first read a thon 🙂
This was my third readathon, but my first time doing the Biannual Bibliothon.
I couldn’t partcipate… I hope you had fun! By the way what’s your favorite mythical creature (in Alice in wonderland)?
How come you couldn’t participate? And my favorite creature is the Jabberwocky.
Time problems *sigh*… Woah that’s awesome!
Ohh, what did you think of The Archived? I haven’t picked up that book yet, but I have all of Schwab’s adult books so far.
I haven’t really formed all my thoughts about it yet.
I haven’t had the chance to participate in any readathon but this really sounds fun! 🙂
