February BookTube Recap

February BookTube Recap

Have you missed my BookTube videos? Well, don’t you worry. Here they are, conveniently in one location in the order in which I uploaded them. Now you can marathon them or just watch the ones you missed. I thought I’d try out this format for sharing my videos with you all. Instead of an individual post for each video, I figured I’d put them all in one post. I hope you enjoy!

January Wrap-up

Seven Vital Steps to Receiving the Holy Spirit by Kenneth E. Hagin
The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson
The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
Undercover by Danielle Steel
The Paradox of Vertical Flight By Emil Ostrovski
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

In January, I participated in my first readathon, the #24in48 readathon. I only read for 6 hours, but seeing as how it was first readathon of the year, I’m still pretty proud of myself.

I also completed two of Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenges.
The Glass Menagerie (Read a Play)
The Circle Maker (Read a Book about Religion)
I’m surprised that I even completed one challenge, so I’m optimistic that I’ll be able to complete many more.
