Becca’s Bookoplathon Plan | 48 hours Live!

Welcome to my post, today I’ll be sharing my plans for Becca’s Bookoplathon, the 48 hour live version from Saturday 20th to Sunday 21st!

This round of Becca’s Bookoplathon is a 48 hour, all live readathon! There will be 12 live shows with lots of guests to get as much reading as possible done! Since it is Becca’s Bookoplathon, we get most of the prompts during the readathon so it’s hard to prepare, but I’m going to share my options and hopeful reads. For more information, this is the readathon’s twitter and Becca’s announcement video.

Prompts #1 and #2

We do have the first two prompts: fantasy and dark cover! I have a free trial for Scribd right now, so hopefully I can make use of that with some short audiobooks.

All Systems Red is a 3 hour audiobook with equally short next books in the series. It’s sounds like a fun sci-fi and I’ve been meaning to read it for a while so that’s definitely an option.

The next series satisfies both prompts. The Empress of Salt and Fortune and When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain are two hours each, so I would be able to get through both in one sprint! I’ve heard great things about them and I’m very intrigued so I might try them out.

Lastly, we have Siege and Storm which I have on my kindle. I need to finish the Grisha Trilogy before April 23rd (when the Netflix series is released!) so this would be the smart choice, but it is a lot longer than the others and I wouldn’t be able to read much more for the readathon.

Other Options

I have no idea what the other prompts could be, but I’ve chosen a range of books mostly from my owned TBR that will hopefully fit whatever comes up!

Remote Control is another short audiobook possibility at 4 hours long, and this is one of my anticipated releases for 2021! The premise sounds really interesting so if I can fit this into a prompt I’ll be happy.

Another sci-fi with This is How You Lose the Time War. I’ve had it on my kindle since 2020, so it needs to be read soon! All I know is it’s a sapphic sci-fi with time travel, which is enough to put it at the top of my list.

Under the Udala Trees is a sapphic historical-fiction set in Nigeria. It’s just about manageable for a 48 hour readathon at around 350 pages.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo will be a stretch because it’s almost 400 pages, so I’ll only pick this up if nothing else fits the prompts, but I am excited (and nervous) to read it!

Finally we have Kim Jiyoung, Born in 1982. The audiobook is 3 hours long so another great pick for the readathon, and a genre that isn’t fantasy or sci-fi or historical fiction for the range!

Thanks for reading, I’ll let you know how I do at the end of the readathon in a wrap up! Are you taking part in any readathons?

  1. I have seen scheduled lives on YouTube for the Bookpoplathon, but I didn’t really know what it was. I should participate, it seems like fun!
