July 2019 TBR + The Book Junkie Trials

How is it nearly July already?? We're now nearly 7 months into the year and I just don't know where the time is going, I feel like it was Christmas only a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, a new month means a new TBR. I didn't quite manage to read all of the books on my June TBR, you can find that post here, as I had a bit of a slow reading week near the beginning of the month so I didn't manage to read my classic or my non-fiction book of the month, as well as one of the books from my TBR box and an ebook. I've decided that whatever I don't manage to read from my TBR posts will just get put straight into the next months TBR and will be prioritised.

Library Books

Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture by Jon Savage
All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Owned Books

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Sisters Red by Jackson Pierce

The Book Junkie Trials  

Also this month I'm going to be participating in my first readathon! Over on booktube Rachael Marie has created The Bookie Trials, which is a month long readathon/event where you're sorted into teams and you essentially go on a quest. You have to read a book based on the prompt for each section of the map your team visits. Each team also has a strength and a weakness that have to be applied to what you're reading as well as participating in micro challenges that will be set throughout the month! I'm going to be participating on Team Bard and I'm super excited for it to start. If you want to join there's still a few days until the cut off, you can find the announcement video here with all the information you need. You can find my TBR for The Book Junkie Trials below along with all the challenges I'll be completing and the map.

The Elven Guard are suprised by your visit and are immediately on the offensive: Read a book with war, military or political themes to learn how to calm the situation. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.

On The Hallow Isle, lurk incorporeal monsters and the ghosts of your past: Read an atmospheric or horror book to pass this test of nerve. Carrie by Stephen King.
Empty Barrel Inn, every bard deserves a swig or two, some say it even aids warming up those vocal cords: Enjoy an indulgent read.The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton.
Giant Squid, a fearsome fellow: Read a book that intimidates you and this foe shall be a doddle.The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
The Bookie Grail, here you find a lost manuscript, delivered on this forgotten island by a fallen star: Read the group book.Stardust by Neil Gaiman.
