So… I might be crazy seeing as I am in one of the busiest times of the semester, but there’s this cool readathon happening…. And I’m gonna do it! (Or attempt it, at least).
It is called the Scallywagathon and you can hear all about it in Ali’s video at her channel Hardback Hoarder. It begins at midnight on November 5th and ends at 11:59 on November 11th. I’ll give a rundown on how this works. Basically, you are given a treasure map and have to choose your route for the treasure!
(This treasure map picture was stolen from @hardbackhoarder ‘s twitter page)
To begin you pick a challenge from 1-5. Then, you follow that colored route to the next number you want to go to and so on until you reach the TREASURE!
For example, I am starting with challenge number 2. I am following the red line to challenge number 7. Then, I will follow the grey line to detour B. My final challenge is number 9 and I am off to the TREASURE!
There are four challenges in all and they seem pretty open. (Which is good, considering all the homework and classes that I have.)
Challenge #2: Parley – Has a Villian You Wanna Meet
I picked Nimona by Noelle Stevenson for this one because I heard she is an awesome Villian. I’ve had this one from the library for a while. Since it’s a graphic novel, it should be a strong beginning into the challenge.
Challenge #7: Crow’s Nest – New Release You’ve Had Your Eye On
I am super excited about this one! I have an ARC of it (received in a trade), but since it’s already out I might try to get a copy from the library.
Route B: But Why is the Rum Gone? – Part Of A Series You Want To Finish
I am following the Fables reading order listed here and this is my next one. Plus it’s on my phone (Borrowed with the Hoopla app), so I can easily read it anywhere. (Big plus for a busy college student.)
Challenge #9: Clear The Deck – From Your Owned TBR
This book is going to be a surprise for you and me both! I have SO MANY to choose from, but I don’t know how much time I’ll have to read it.
So there you have it! My TBR for the Scallywagathon. I kept it short and simple so that I hopefully can complete it. I think I can, but wish me luck. Let me know if you are participating as well! I would love to see other Scallywagathon TBR’s.
