The 2019 Winter Biannual Bibliothon starts this weekend! This readathon is hosted by a handful of BookTubers and has reading (and video, if you have a YouTube channel) challenges to keep you interested. There is a group book during every round of the Biannual Bibliothon, and the pick for this particular round is Empress of All Seasons.

Alright guys, it’s time to (mostly) say goodbye to #AYEARATHON. I’ve gotta focus on these challenges now! Some of these books can double up in the event that I don’t finish reading all of my first choices, but here are the books I’ve chosen for this round of the Biannual Bibliothon —
1. Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean, obviously, since that’s the only option for this challenge. I’ve gotta be honest, though, I don’t really think I’ll get around to reading it. I’m don’t like the cover enough to purchase it, and my library doesn’t currently have a copy. If they happen to get it before the end of the readathon, I might give it a shot.
2. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
3. Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce, which will also overlap with #AYEARATHON.
4. Malice by John Gwynne appears to be an epic fantasy without a young adult tag on Goodreads, so I’m counting it as adult.
5. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff was the first book that came to mind. I don’t like the mixed media format, so I’ve been procrastinating this book since it was released. However, science fiction is one of my favorite genres, so I might be able to handle it!
6. Wither by Lauren DeStefano
7. Becoming by Michelle Obama
That’s all I’ve got for today, friends. Someday I’ll get around to formatting my weekly rewinds so that I can see y’all on Sundays as well, but until then, we’ll have to settle for Mondays. You can look forward to a readathon wrap-up on Monday at the usual time! Thanks for stopping by! ♥
