Sbooktacular readathon TBR

The Sbooktacular Readathon Adventure is a ‘choose-your-own adventure’ style readathon that runs from the 25th-31st of October, and is hosted by Novel Thoughts.

For this readathon, you choose a pathway through the map, and end up joining 1 of 5 teams. I went on a library splurge yesterday, and the Team Witch pathway happened to fit the best (I think) with what I picked up, so that’s the team I’ll be joining.

Team Witch

  1. Read a book of your choice
    S.T.A.G.S (back up duplicate: One Dark Throne)
  2. Read a book set in the past
    Dragon Teeth
  3. Read a book with magic in it
    A darker shade of magic (backup duplicate: One Dark Throne)
  4. Read a book with orange on the cover
    Skitter (backup duplicate One Dark Throne)
  5. Read a book only after the sun has set
    Reborn
  6. Read the first book in a series
    A Natural History of Dragons (backup duplicate: A Darker Shade of Magic)
  7. Read a fantasy novel
    A Gathering of Shadows (backup duplicate: One Dark Throne OR A Darker Shade of Magic OR A Natural History of dragons)

The readathon has a house cup element as well, and you earn points by:

  • Posting YouTube videos about your readathon experience. (20p)
    Can be: TBR videos, reading updates, daily or weekly vlogs, wrap up videos.
  • Posting blogs about your readathon experience. (20p)
    Can be: TBR posts, reading updates, wrap ups.
  • Posting photos of your TBR or reading progress. (10p)
    Post with the hashtag #sbookyreads and your team hashtag so that we can find your posts.
  • Tweeting about the readathon. (10p)
    Tweet with the hashtag #sbookyreads and your team hashtag so that we can find your posts.
  • Participating in Twitter sprints. (5p)
    Tweet with the hashtag #sbookyreads.
  • Finishing books. (100p)
  • Completing readathon challenges. (100p)
  • Completing your entire readathon path. (200p)

I’m not sure how many books I’ll get finished, but I’m going to do my best to at least finish the full 7 challenges and get the 200 points for finishing my pathway. You can use 1 book for more than 1 challenge on the same pathway, which is why I’ve picked out duplicates for more categories, so if I am short on time I can still fit everything in. You can also move onto additional challenges/pathways after you finish your own, so I might do that too if I can!
