Welcome, to BookBuddyAthon!
Created by Elena and Sam the #BookBuddyAthon is a week long readathon, with this round running from May 6th to May 12th, that encourages you to buddy up with someone and talk books, glorious books for a whole week.
I am a little late to this but am super excited to be doing it! My book buddy will be my daughter Nevaeh! Mainly to help her more into reading ( even though she loves it ), Mommy time and learning.
I found out about #bookbuddyathon though: JessicaMarie493
Check out her TBR for the bookbuddyathon.
1. Choose three books and have your buddy pick one for you to read.
After giving Nevaeh the choice between The Knight at Dawn, Ghost Town at Sundown and Wolfmen Don’t Hula Dance she has chose The Knight at Dawn.
That’s what Jack and Annie find when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to the Middle Ages for another wild adventure. In the Great Gall of the castle, a feast is under way. But Jack and Annie aren’t exactly welcome guests!
Nevaeh’s turn: She chose Leprechauns Don’t Play Fetch, Wolfmen Don’t Hula Dance and Dragon’s Don’t Cook Pizza. I chose for her Leprechauns Don’t Play Fetch.
There are some pretty weird grown-ups in Bailey City, but is the owner of the new pet store really a Leprechaun? And is he using the Blarney Stone to take over the town? The Bailey School Kids are going to find out!
2. Buddy read a book with your buddy.
We have chosen this lovely book that Miss Nevaeh got from her Owlcrate Jr.
Honorine’s life as as maid at the Vidalia mansion is rather dull, dusting treasures from faraway places and daydreaming in front of maps of the world. But everything changes when she catches two brutish sailors ransacking Lord Vidalia’s study, and then follows a mysterious girl with wings out into the night….
Suddenly, Honorine is whisked into the middle of a battle between the crew of a spectacular steamship and a band of mythical constellations. The stars in the sky have come to life to defend themselves against those who want to harness their powers. Much to her surprise, Honorine is the crux of it all, the center of an epic clash between magic and science, the old ways and the new. But can this spirited young girl bring both sides of a larger-than-life fight together before they unleash an evil power even older than the stars?
3. Read a book with your buddy’s favorite colour on it.
One of Nevaeh’s favorite colours is purple so i chose The Popularity Rules.
The meek don’t inherit a thing. Nice girls win nothing but regret. Virtue is wholly overrated.
If you don’t do it, some other girl will.
Kat Elliot has spent her life fighting against phony schmoozing-and it’s led her nowhere. A rebellious music journalist, Kat is down on her dreams when her exbest friend Lauren swishes back into town. Ten years ago, Lauren dumped Kat for high school gold: popularity. Now Lauren wants to make amends by teaching Kat the secret to her success: The Popularity Rules, a decades-old rule book that transformed Lauren that fateful summer.
Broke and desperate, Kat reluctantly agrees to a total makeover-what does she have to lose? She’s gotten nowhere on her own. Maybe becoming someone new is just what she needs.
Nevaehs Turn: I chose the colour blue and this was the book she got. Frosty The Snowman.
Boys and girls ages 3 to 7 will feel the magic of the holiday season with this full-color storybook retelling the tale of the most famous snowman of all, Frosty the Snowman! Over 30 stickers add to the fun!
4. Read a book where the title starts with the first letter of your buddy’s name.
Read a book with the starting of the name… Well this was a hard one as i only had one book with her starting letter which was New Moon but i have not read the first book so i can not read that one yet. So i chose this one which has her first letter in the second word.
The Fear name brings fortune…and doom.
The dark power of the Fear family consumes all those connected with it. The Fears. Those they love—and hate. The entire town of Shadyside. All are tainted forever by the evil of the family’s curse. No one can escape.
Nora Goode and Daniel Fear hoped to end the curse of the Fear family. But on their wedding day, a horrible fire swept through the Fear mansion, taking the life of every member of the doomed family.
Except one. A new Fear. The child of Nora and Daniel. Will he be able to live his life untouched by the evil of his family? Or will the dark forces claim yet another Fear for their own?
Nevaehs’s Turn: My name starts with a D so she chose Dumbo.
5. Read a book that you want to, just because.
My just because book is Pretty Little Liars Flawless.
In the exclusive town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where the sweetest smiles hide the darkest secrets, four pretty little liars–Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna–have been very bad girls. . . .
Spencer stole her sister’s boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. And Hanna’s obsession with looking flawless is literally making her sick. But the most horrible secret of all is something so scandalous it could destroy their perfect little lives.
And someone named “A” is threatening to do just that.
At first they thought A was Alison, their friend who vanished three years ago . . . but then Alison turned up dead. So could A be Melissa, Spencer’s ultracompetitive sister? Or Maya, who wants Emily all to herself? What about Toby, the mysterious guy who left town right after Alison went missing?
One thing’s for certain: A’s got the dirt to bury them all alive, and with every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message A sends, the girls get a little closer to losing it all.
Nevaeh’s Turn: She chose The Star Thief.
I will be posting a Wrap – Up of these books on May 15th since i am starting this quite late.
The #BookBuddyAthon started on May 6th. Will you be joining in?
