Animal Crossing Readathon| Announcement and TBR

hey everybody welcome back to my channel
my name is Amiee and this is ambooklife life and today we are announcing the
animal crossing a read-a-thon I am so excited for this read-a-thon you’ll have
no idea I have loved Animal Crossing for
freaking years I originally play it on the Gamecube like most people have like
that’s where we first were introduced to Animal Crossing and my brother and I we’ve
played it non-stop and I have loved it ever since and if you didn’t know on
March 20th the new Animal Crossing game is coming out for the switch and this
read-a-thon is in celebration of that and also an encouragement to read all
your books in the beginning of March because once the
20th hits and no one’s gonna be reading the animal crossing read-a-thon will
start on March 9th and it will end on the 20th so it will end the day the game
comes out all right so it’s a little less than two weeks I prefer a longer
read-a-thon rather than just a week one just because like a whole week one is really
really short but 11 days is really good and like I said once the 20th hits I’m
probably not going to be reading so this read-a-thon just like the game has a lot
of things going on but there are a lot of fun easy things to participate in you
can pick and choose what you want to do let me first introduce my hosts so the
first host we have is Diana from paperback Jedi she is great she has done
most of the logos if not I think all of the graphic designs for this read-a-thon
and I’m so happy I asked her to join this read-a-thon and then next we have
Tori from Medusa wreaths I am once again so happy she want to join this
read-a-thon as well she has been really good with coming up with prompts and
communicating and tweeting and all together we have just created I think a
really really really fun easy relaxing read-a-thon that’s not gonna put too
much pressure on the reader it’s really just gonna celebrate the game
and our love of reading so the first thing I’m going to show you is actually
our map this is just for fun there is no start there is no finish
this is just a for funs thing this is your map to see you can like make your
own pathway hit your own spots it’s up to you so this map is not really
anything just a fun piece to put in your bolt journal if you would like the next
thing is probably the most important thing
it is our prompts as you can see there’s not too many prompts here we do have a
bonus prompt and a few bonus challenges as well but let’s just go over the
prompts and while I am going over the prompts I’ll be showing you what I will be
reading or attempting to read while doing this and if you want you can
double up your books you can read one book for every single thing if you want
or you can even use one of the host books as well which like I said I’ll go
over those in a second. The first prompt is Resetti don’t forget to save, read a book
while using a bookmark! So here’s another fun thing we get to announce I think
it’s already been out on our Twitter but we actually collaborated with an Etsy shop
here in the book community she is so so popular so good and she really listened
to us and our designs and was so easy to work with
we collabed with Kat from Rustic Pages to create this bookmark for y’all so if
you guys want to purchase this bookmark before the read-a-thon even starts or
you can purchase it while the read-a-thon is going and just use this
bookmark while you read you can definitely go to the link below here’s
the bookmark right here y’all it is beautiful it is great these are actually
the characters y’all voted on via our Twitter page which if you’re not
following it here is the name. Definitely go check it out it is so much fun on
there! We have so many so many things going on during the
read-a-thon on that Twitter so you make sure you want to follow that so like I
said here are the bookmarks these are characters y’all voted on I love it so
much they’re all reading books and they’re all in the Town Plaza so there’s
not really any book in particular for that one just because it says just to
use a bookmark but any book pick up I will be using for that
next one is K.K. slider, listen to an audiobook or read a book with the
musical element so the audiobook of choice that I have staying in theme with
March because we didn’t know March is also known as a middle-grade March so a
lot of my books will be middle-grade if not all of them that book is going to be
Nevermore by Jessica Townsend I’ll be listening to this via audio book this
book has been described to me as Harry Potter vibes
I know it’s about Morgan Crow who was born a cursed child and on her 11th
birthday she is actually supposed to die which is really devastating because
she’s 11 but a guy named Jupiter something doesn’t say his name back here
I know it’s Jupiter because I’ve heard it said several times I think is a guy
named Jupiter comes in and takes her to Nevermore where she is going to face
some trials that’s what I got but it says right here a Harry Potter esque
adventure by Tmes magazine so really excited to finally dive into this and to
finally read it I’m really hoping the audiobook is great and I don’t know if
you all have seen this cover but there’s a giant cat alright the next one is the
able sisters read a book with a strong family bond alright now this is actually
a sequel of a book that I’m going to talk about soon but this is a sprinkle
of sorcery by Michelle Harrison this is the waterstones
exclusive edition really excited to have this this is the sequel to a pinch of
magic which I’ll mention here soon but this is a book that I’m going through
reading with that it’s about three sisters with a magical secret
middle-grade as well all right the next one is Tom Nook read a book that you
recently purchased or recently checked out from the library and we’re gonna go
with green at glass house which is a middle-grade book and I got this from
the library this was all the rage during the winter season like the holiday
season I know it has magical elements in it and I think has to deal with a house
or a motel I think this this might be a motel actually that kind
of has a mind of its own I think it’s kind of a mystery really excited to read
this live from lives library she recommended
this to me and she has really good book recommendations so I’m super pumped to
dive into this one all right and we couldn’t mention this entire prompt list
without at least mentioning the Gamecube because that’s where it all started and
that is it’s a long runs of to read it Animal Crossing GameCube read a book
that has been on your TBR at the longest or reread an old favorite so I am
actually going to be reading the divide by Elizabeth Kay I have very little
ideas to what this about I know it’s a fantasy book it has animals like magical
creatures in it and this actually happens to be my boyfriend’s like one of
his favorite childhood books and he’s been wanting me to read it for a really
long time so we are going to dive in to this book it looks really cool like this
is the cover I how cool is that well dive into that alright and I’m the
bonus prom of course Isabel we could not leave her out and that is read one of
the hosts choice so first I will go over my co-host choice let them go first the
first one we have is Diana’s paperback Jedi and this is Anya and the dragon by
Sophia Pass pass Pasternak Pasternak I think it’s how you say it
um I’m really excited about this one it is about our main character I forgot
what her name is uh Anya so but our main karen ‘she goes on a quest to find a
dragon or hunt down or dragon something like that um dragons are said to not be
in existence anymore and but her family needs the money so she is it going on
this voyage to find a dragon so i’m yet in the dragon and the next one that i’m
super pumped for it is a book that has been on my Amazon wishlist for a really
long time I’m really
that Tory picked this one out because it gave me a really good excuse to buy it
and that is the tea dragon Society first of all did not realize this book was
this giant I am so pumped to read this this is going to be such a cute book
I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it and I really I haven’t looked
through it because I kind of want to have that surprise about reading it but
it’s so colorful and fun and heartwarming I hear and it’s by Katy
O’Neil and like I said I’m really glad Torrey picked it because this is has
been on my wish list for so long and I’m glad I was able to purchase it for
myself and also to read it during such an awesome read-a-thon alright and then
my pick is currently not here it should get in a few days before the read-a-thon
and it is actually the first book to this because this is a sequel it is a
pinch of magic by Michelle Harrison it is about sisters and family and Lexi
from Alexander Rosalyn she appraises this so much she liked everybody to read
it during the holiday seasons I finally purchased it especially when I saw that
this one had come out and it really cool sprayed edges it just really encouraged
me to purchase it and so I actually purchased it from Book Depository where
our critics are really long time to get here so hopefully it should get here by
the fourth and I hope you all will join in in reading one of the three host
