Booktube-A-Thon!

Hello, my lovely readers!
I am taking place in the awesomely exciting Booktube-A-Thon and today is the first day! It's a readathon for booktubers, but everyone is encouraged to join in so I thought "Why on earth not?!"
The Booktube-A-Thon was created by Ariel Bissett (ArielBissett on YouTube)  and Raeleen Lemay padfootandprongs07 on YouTube)
Here are links to their YouTube channels:

Basically, Booktube-A-Thon is a week to read as many books as you possibly can, and complete some challenges that have been chosen by the fantastic creators of this event!
Here are the challenges:
1) read an average of 300 pages a day
2) read a book with over 500 pages
3) re-read one book
4) finish a series/trilogy
5) read a book that's been on your shelf forever
6) listen to an audiobook
7) read a classic

I've also added my own challenge which is:
8) read two books that you started, but didn't finish
Here are the books I'll be reading for the Booktube-A-Thon and what challenge it completes:
I'll be reading David Copperfield by Charles Dickens which takes care challenge number 7, and it could take care of challenge 2, but I am using a different book for that one. I'm super excited about this book!
I will also be reading Angel by James Patterson and Ettiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger to complete the challenge that I created.
Next, as my re-read I will be reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I just can't wait to re-read this book - it's been too long.
To finish a series/trilogy, I will be reading The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan. I loved the first two books and can't wait to read the second!
For the "read a book that's been on your shelf forever" and the "read a book over 500 pages" challenges, I'll be reading Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I don't know why I haven't read this yet but I've had it FOREVER.
To finish challenge number 6, I'll be listening to This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith. I have been wanting to read this and I am so excited!
I'll hopefully be reading 300 pages per day, but we'll see and my ultimate word count is... drum roll please... 2,951 pages! I've gotta admit, I'm extremely intimidated, but this is all in good fun so I think I'll have a good time doing it!
Y'all should join the challenges too because it's a whole lot of fun and keep me posted!
If you want to follow the twitter page of the Booktube-A-Thon, here's the link: https://twitter.com/BookTubeAThon. I, personally, don't have a twitter. I'm still trying to convince my parents to let me get one (love you Mommy and Daddy!) but I still go to the page and look at the updates to see how everyone is doing and it's super, super awesome.
I'll be posting updates everyday on how I'm doing, so stay tunes for those! Love ya! Byeeee!
