Monthly TBR

BookTubeAThon 2018 TBR!

Hi everyone!

I’m back with my BookTubeAThon 2018 TBR! I had SO much fun last year with the BTAT 17, and managed to read all of the books I set, and do the majority of the bookstagram and video challenges – it was one of the best weeks ever!

I’m so excited to once again be taking part in it this year, however due to having no wifi at home I probably won’t be able to take part in any of the booktube challenges *cries forever*. I still want to take part in the readathon though, so I will be doing as many of the bookstagram challenges and the reading challenges as I can fit around work!

Anyway let’s get into my TBR! There are so many amazing challenges this year, and I love them so let’s talk about it!

divider-2461548_1280

Coin Toss Choice:

For this challenge Ariel wants us to let a coin decide what we read, which I think is so much fun! I picked two books, The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee and The Shock of the Fall, and then tossed a coin to decide which one and the winner was…

The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee!
