BookTube-A-Thon TBR

Who doesn't love a good challenge? Or an opportunity to tackle some of the books that you have always wanted to read but never had time to? Well, that's what read-a-thons are for.

Next week, beginning Monday, July 24, and till Sunday, July 30, the BookTube community will strive to complete all of the seven challenges announced by Ariel Bissett in this video. Obviously, I have to try too.
