#HPWeekendAThon TBR

Hey Book Lovers,

I am so excited to be announcing I will be joining the #HPWeekendAThon created and hosted by two amazing BookTubers.

The HPWeekendAThon was created by Chelsea @ chelseadolling reads and April @ Aprilius Maximus and is running from Friday December 2nd through to Monday December 5th. All of the challenges are Harry Potter themed to coincide with Harry Xmas To You which is a Monthly read and watch a long.

The Challenges & My TBR:

Challenge 1 – Harry: Read a book that booktube has been deemed THE CHOSEN ONE! AKA read a hyped book.

I have chosen A Court of Thorns and Roses for a book that BookTube has deemed The Chosen One! The hype surrounding Sarah J. Maas is incredible already, and add in a new series and the type gets so HUGE that I couldn’t pass up a chance to read ACOTAR.

Plus… this synopsis!: She thinks nothing of slaughering a wolf to capture its prey. But, like all mortals, she fears what lingers mercilessly beyond the forest/ And she will learn that taking the life of a magical creatures comes at a high price. . . 

 

Challenge 2 – Hermione: Read a book that has badass female characters.

When I think of badass female characters, I think of some of my favourite female DC and Marvel characters! Today, I have chosen HARLEY QUINN and this one will be my first read of a DC comic! Hands up if your excited, because I certainly am!

 

 

Challenge 3 – Ron: Read an orange or red book.

I am going to choose A Court of Thorns and Roses for a red or orange book, simply because as this is only a weekend readathon, I couldn’t possibly finish another book in this short amount of time! But I am so excited for my first experience reading a Sarah J. Maas book!

 

 

Challenge 4 – Dumbledore: Read a book that features LGBT+ characters.

I have been waiting for the longest time to read More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera, then I saw him get slammed on twitter recently and people returning his books so I splurged and purchased More Happy Than Not in HARDCOVER. Because that is just the way I roll.

This is the perfect opportunity to add in more diversity to my reading, I have been loving some of the diverse reads so far, so More Happy Than Not that has LGBT aspects, I could not pass it up!

 

Challenge 5 – Hagrid: A comfort read! AKA read a book by a favorite author.

Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling is my choice for a comfort read. We are first introduced to The Tales of Beedle the Bard in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and since I saw this in the shop the other day I had to grab it and add it to my Harry Potter shelf!

This is the HPWeekendAThon and J.K Rowling is of course one of my comfort authors, so I will be picking up this small book for the final challenge in this WeekendAThon!

It is safe to say I am super excited to join in on the #HPWeekendAThon. I hope you liked my TBR, let me know in the comments if you will be joining in or feel free to check out my BookTube TBR video below if you are interested! Also, if you have any thoughts on the books I have picked let me know!

Happy Reading

    1. I hope I do too, I’m so keen to start it, only a small wait until I will smash through it and attempt to shout all my thoughts on it at you haha. I’ve heard that from a few people actually, that they liked ACOMAF much better, so it’ll be interesting to see if I like it! Also I just saw you subscribe to my BookTube channel! Thank you so much ❤

  1. Yay, another ReadAThon! And it’s starting the day after the Tome Topple ReadAThon finishes?! Well, looks like I’m not getting a break! This is an awesome ReadAThon. And I’ll be able to slip Fantastic Beasts into this one! 😀

      1. Hey, it’s all about having fun! I haven’t finished #Readthemallthon but I will once I get my hands on the two books I had to return to the library…I always finish a challenge, even if it’s really late!

      2. That’s so awesome to hear, I should start that, I will definitely be finishing this one, but I think one of my books will be moved to the #DAReadAThon that starts in January because I won’t get around to finishing it yet. I am just too busy reading A Court of Thorns and Roses… Which I freaking love, so I don’t want to rush it 🙂 .

      3. I finished it just before midnight last night… and I loved every second. However, I am like the only person in the world on the Feylin ship, and I don’t want to move to ACOMAF because I like the ship I am on haha. #Readerproblems!

      4. I haven’t gotten very far but I can understand what you mean since it is her first love: why do writers have to change horses midstream? We root for Feyre and Tamlin, and then they throw Rhysand in the mix! Wth!! Argh! (Don’t tell me what happens bc I just checked it out again from the library and I’m going to read it first thing when school ends next week!)
