Booktubeathon TBR

After much deliberation I've decided to give this year's Booktubeathon a try (although I already know I'm going to fail miserably). If you don't know what Booktubeathon is, I'd recommend you viewing some of the video's on the official Booktubathon channel! Down below you can find the books I chose for this year's challenge!

1. Read a book with a person on the cover
2. Read a hyped book

I've decided to put these two together. I'm currently reading ACOWAR by Sarah J. Maas and it perfectly fits these two bullets! (My review on this book will (hopefully) be up soon)

3. Finish a book in one day

I've chosen Pork Pie Hat by Peter Straub for this one. It's not too long and it looks like an easy and quick read!

4. Read about a character that is very different from you

For this bullet I chose Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, because 1) I thought it was about time for my 4th reread of this classic, and 2) I think Humbert Humbert is very different from me and a lot of other people (I hope). It might not exactly be what was meant with this bullet, but I didn't have any unread books on my shelves that contained someone with another gender, sexuality, race or anything like that.

5. Finish a book completely outdoors

Since A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess hasn't that many pages, and because the next few days are promised to be rainy, I thought this one would be perfect for this bullet. At least, it's literature, so I do hope it's a quick and "easy" read (it has only 140 pages!)

6. Read a book you bought because of the cover

For this bullet I chose Revival by Stephen King. I bought it at the supermarket for only 5 euros and didn't know what it was about. But the cover looked cool, so I thought "why NOT?"

7. Read seven books

Because I put bullet 1 and 2 together for ACOWAR I still had to choose two books to be able to complete this challenge. So I chose The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. The first one is a reread (of which I remember close to nothing) and seems like a quick read and I chose the Frankenstein because it hasn't that many pages (I'm a slow reader okay!)
