Read-A-Thon,  TBR

Winter Biannual Bibliothon TBR

Hey guys. I thought I would share by TBR for the Biannual Bibliothon. The readathon is taking place from the 20th to the 26th of January. Here is the YouTube channel with all the details. There are reading challenges, which I will share with you, but I am only planning on completing 5 of them. If I finish all 5 books with time left over, then I might try to complete another challenge.


The reading challenges for the readathon are:

  1. Read the group book: OTHERWORLD by Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller
  2. Read a sequel
  3. Read a book you’ve never heard of before
  4. Read a book about mental illness
  5. Read a book that was mentioned in another book/movie/show etc.
  6. Read a book under 200 pages
  7. Read a backlist title

And here is my TBR:

Arsenic For Tea: A Murder Most Unladylike MysteryRead a sequel (book 2 in the Murder Most Unladylike series)

Schoolgirl detectives Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are at Daisy’s home, Fallingford, for the holidays. Daisy’s glamorous mother is throwing a tea party for Daisy’s birthday, and the whole family is invited, from eccentric Aunt Saskia to dashing Uncle Felix. But it soon becomes clear that this party isn’t really about Daisy at all. Naturally, Daisy is furious. Then one of their party falls seriously, mysteriously ill – and everything points to poison. With wild storms preventing anyone from leaving, or the police from arriving, Fallingford suddenly feels like a very dangerous place to be. Not a single person present is what they seem – and everyone has a secret or two. And when someone very close to Daisy looks suspicious, the Detective Society must do everything they can to reveal the truth . . . no matter the consequences.


The Girl's Guide to SummerRead a book you’ve never heard of before (I only bought this book because of the cover. I’ve never seen anyone else talk about it)

Sydney Aarons is leaving her Manhattan townhouse for a summer backpacking around Europe with her best friend, Leela. They’re visiting London, France, Italy, Switzerland and everywhere in between – it’s going to be the trip of a lifetime.

BUT… The trip gets off to a bad start when Leela’s ex-boyfriend shows up on their flight out of JFK. When they touch down in London, Leela Instagrams their every move in the hope Matt will come and find them… Which he does, along with the most gorgeous guy Sydney has ever seen.

Will Sydney’s summer fling last the distance? And what will happen when they all head home?


Image result for under rose tainted skiesRead a book about mental illness (the main character had agoraphobia)

Agoraphobia confines Norah to the house she shares with her mother.

For her, the outside is sky glimpsed through glass, or a gauntlet to run between home and car. But a chance encounter on the doorstep changes everything: Luke, her new neighbour. Norah is determined to be the girl she thinks Luke deserves: a ‘normal’ girl, her skies unfiltered by the lens of mental illness. Instead, her love and bravery opens a window to unexpected truths …

An important and uplifting debut from a British author, which tackles mental health issues such as agoraphobia and OCD.


The Catcher in the RyeRead a book that was mentioned in another book/movie/show etc. (its part of the Rory Gilmore reading challenge)

Holden Caulfield is a seventeen- year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Navigating his way through the challenges of growing up, Holden dissects the ‘phony’ aspects of society, and the ‘phonies’ themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection.

 


The Girl of Ink and StarsRead a backlist title (it was published in 2016)

Forbidden to leave her island, Isabella Riosse dreams of the faraway lands her father once mapped.

When her closest friend disappears into the island’s Forgotten Territories, she volunteers to guide the search. As a cartographer’s daughter, she’s equipped with elaborate ink maps and knowledge of the stars, and is eager to navigate the island’s forgotten heart.

But the world beyond the walls is a monster-filled wasteland – and beneath the dry rivers and smoking mountains, a legendary fire demon is stirring from its sleep. Soon, following her map, her heart and an ancient myth, Isabella discovers the true end of her journey: to save the island itself.
