Over the last couple of days, I’ve been thinking about what books to read next week, when BookTubeAThon starts: a challenge where you attempt to read 7 books in 7 days (PAH, not gonna happen). Despite my pessimism, I am going to give it a shot, and here are some books I’m going to try out for the additional challenges Ariel Bissett has set us.
REALITY BOY BY A. S. KING.
This is for the ‘Read a book with yellow on the cover’ challenge, as you can see.
I wanted to use this week to try and get through the books I was really excited about when I got them, and Reality Boy is one of them. It’s about a boy who was on a reality TV show as a toddler and what his dysfunctional life is like now.
THREE WISHES BY LIANE MORIARTY.
I’ve enjoyed absolutely everything by Liane Moriarty so I don’t know why I haven’t read this yet. It’s been sitting on my bookshelf untouched for months. She’s one of my favourite authors (annnnnd the challenge is: Read a book by a favourite author!) so I’m finally going to get around to this one.
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST BY KEN KESEY.
This is cheating a little bit, as I did start this book a while back but put it down and never finished it. However, I really want to finish it so thought it would be a good one for the ‘Read and watch a book-to-film adaptation’ challenge, especially since the film is meant to be amazing and I’ve never seen it!
WUTHERING HEIGHTS BY EMILY BRONTE.
I’m hoping to really enjoy this as I loved the books I’ve read by Charlotte and Anne Bronte. I chose this for the ‘Read a book that’s older than you’ challenge as I’ve wanted to read it for ages anyway.
Also, think I put that this was by Charlotte Bronte in my last post… oops! I always get them mixed up!
WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE BY SHIRLEY JACKSON.
This is for the ‘book you discovered through BookTube’ challenge. I’m not sure what it’s about but it sounds spooky spooky so I’m excited. It’s another one that’s been waiting on my shelves for ages hoping for some attention.
I honestly don’t think I’ll be able to only read a certain book after sunset, as it’s getting dark really late at the moment so if I do that, I won’t finish the book in the allotted time. However, here are a few more books I’m considering picking up next week:
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
- The May Bride by Suzannah Dunn
- The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
- The Lady in the Van by Alan Bennett
I do feel like I’m getting back into reading as well, as I’ve picked up Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik again and also am enjoying Stormbird, the first in a historical fiction series by Conn Igguldsen.
Thanks for stopping by!
