BookTubeAThon Diary: Day Three (01/08/18)


General thoughts: Despite *technically* being one book behind schedule, I’m so pleased with how my reading is going so far this week. I finished reading The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, and despite being short it is quite a dense read, so to have finished it in two days feels like quite an achievement to me. As expected, I couldn’t really fault it, making it much more highly rated than day one’s book.

Once I had finished The Hobbit, I moved on to my choice for the book which will be accompanied by a watch of its film counterpart. For me, this was Stardust by Neil Gaiman. I’ve loved this film for years but for some reason never thought to pick up the book as well, so when this challenge was announced it seemed like the ideal opportunity. It’s also quite a short read, so although I’m quite busy tomorrow, I feel like I will be able to make it through it and watch the film in the evening!

I would have gotten more reading done today if it wasn’t for the form that the Twitter reading sprints took! It was scavenger hunting this evening, so instead of reading for the last two hours as I have been for the last two nights, I was pulling out pretty much all of the books from my shelves in the hope of trying to find ones corresponding to the categories that were being thrown at us every few minutes. It was surprisingly tiring, but I had such a good time, and I felt the sense of community through that even more so than I have done for everything else this week so far.

My Instagram challenge submission:

Day Three
“Cosplay a book cover character”

Initially I wasn’t going to do the photo challenge today, because I don’t cosplay. Then, two hours later, I found myself stood in my garden dressed as Bilbo Baggins. The usual Wednesday…

Did you take part in the scavenger hunting, and if so, did you manage all twenty-five books?

Have a beautiful day,
