TBR #Bust-a-thon

Hey guys,

So I have decided to participate in another read-a-thon this month, I am really trying to push to get my reading going as I am already off to a slow start to the month.

The bust-a-thon is a read-a-thon designed to really pound at your TBR, running from the 4th to the 10th of Feb. More information can be found at @tbrbustathon on twitter, including all of the challenges and further information.

There are 7 challenges, however I am not planning on completing all of them.

  1. Read a book that has been on your TBR for over 2 years
  2. Read a banned book
  3. Read a 400+ page book
  4. Read a YA contemporary
  5. Read a book with a pink/red cover
  6. Read a popular book you haven’t read yet
  7. Read a book published after November 2017

I have decided to pick up the following books…

  1. Dark Witch by Nora Roberts, this has been on my TBR for years and I really would like to try and finish this.
  2. The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman, is the second book of the His Dark Materials Trilogy; which currently sits on this Goodreads banned books list.
  3. The Summon Stone by Ian Irvine, this is the first book in ‘The Gates of Good and Evil’ Series; it sits at 563 pages.
  4. I don’t really read contemporary YA so I wont be participating in this challenge.
  5. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows and the cover’s covered in bold pink lettering.
  6. Winter by Marissa Meyer is the final book in the much loved ‘Lunar Chronicles’ and I have been wanting to finish this series for so long and I just need to get it done.
  7. Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu, was published in January 2nd 2018 and this is the sequel to WonderWoman: Warbringer.

Know, as I am currently on a book buying ban, it made sorting this tbr a little difficult; thankfully I had pre-ordered a few books for January and February so I did have books that fit all of these challenges.

I have found my love for audiobooks (in fact I am listening to one as I am doing this blog post!), so I do plan on tackling three of these books on audiobook format. I will be focusing on Winter as I have attempted to read this in physical book before and struggled; however I hope I can fly through the audiobook. I also have The Subtle Knife and The Summon Stone in audiobook format, so if I do manage to finish Winter I plan on picking up one of these.

I do have a busy working week, however if I can read 5 of these books I will be very happy.

Do you plan on participating in the bust-a-thon? Let me know in the comments below. Do you recommend any of these books to start with?
