Winter Biannual Bibliothon | Day 1 | snowdrift shenanigans

It’s the first day of the Winter BIBIB! This is one of my favourite readathons and I participate every round. You can see more on their YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.

The first blog challenge is by Tracy @ Truffle’s Literary Wonders, and for a snappy title I’m going to call it the snowstorm challenge!

The idea of this one is to name 3 characters, 2 types of food/drink, and 1 song you’d want to have in a car with you during a snow storm.

The Blogger Book Tag | Summer BIBIB 2017

Cover: 'sprinkled with words does the Biannual Bibliothon. Day 1: the blogger book tagHi everyone! Today is the first day of the Summer Biannual Bibliothon. This is a readathon which happens twice a year, and this year, blogging challenges have been added!

Day 1’s challenge is to complete the ‘Blogger Book Tag’, so here are my answers! This tag was created by 4teenliars. 🙂

1. What are you planning to read for the Summer Biannual Bibliothon? // You can find my whole TBR by clicking here! 

2. What is your favourite genre to read in summer? // Fantasy! I also like cute summer romances, but high fantasy is when I can buckle down and get it read. 

3. Where is your favourite place to read in summer? // On the sofa? I guess it can be cooler inside sometimes. Just a comfy chair really. I don’t like to read lying down. 

4. What is your favourite challenge done in the Summer Biannual Bibliothon? // I assume this means ever, in which case I loved the treasure hunt that happened last summer! This summer however, I like the fictional foodie challenge, because food. 

5. Which fictional character would you hang out with this summer, if you could? // Percy Jackson, perhaps… 😉 

6. What are your plans for summer? // Well, I’ve already been to Sicily and Portugal…! I’m just reading, completing a TEFL course, and getting ready for my second year at university. I’m also working at a history festival at the end of August. 

7. Do you have a summer reading playlist? If not, what would be on it? // No, I don’t, although I do love ‘The Simple Things”s playlists. I would have ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ by Kelly Clarkson and ‘Absolutely Smitten’ by dodie though. 

8. What is your favourite summer movie? // Um. I don’t really have one, but then again I do watch Nativity all year ’round. Harry Potter? 

9. What book do you read every summer/what thing do you do every summer? // I go to the beach every summer, but I also do that every winter… I guess maybe Harry Potter. Oh, I know! I normally get sunburnt every summer, sadly. I didn’t last year, though! 

10. What other book tags are you planning to do this summer? // Whichever ones pop up! I’m going to be doing some on my booktube though. 🙂

Biannual Bibliothon Summer 2016!

There are booktube challenges every day (booktube, if you’re curious, is the YouTube community… for BOOKS. So it’s obviously epic) as well as 7 reading challenges.  Continue reading “Biannual Bibliothon Summer 2016!”
