The Instagram challenge for day six was to take a picture of your current read and incorporate the mood of the book into the picture (#btatmood). At the end of the day I planned on rereading Through the Woods by Emily Caroll, but I didn’t get around to it. Since I planned to read it and I opened it for a second, I think it technically counts as one of my current reads. It was also the only book I could come up with a fairly easy and doable picture idea for. So that’s what I did. Choosing the easy way out since 1993!
I went to the comic book store and bought five graphic novels. I wanted to buy more of course, but you’ve got to draw the line somewhere, right? I picked up Wolf Vol. 1 by Ales Kot, Giant Days Vol. 5 by John Allison and Rat Queens Vol.1, 2, and 3 by Kurtis J. Wiebe. I’ve heard so many great things about Rat Queens that I’m pretty sure I’ll love it.
After spending a bit too much money, I went to Starbucks (might as well get the most out of having pulled out my wallet). While enjoying a nice cool drink, I read Giant Days Vol. 5 and listened to The Beach Boys. Usually, I’m not a big fan of books or graphic novels that take place in the real world, but Giant Days is at the top of my list of favorite series ever.
When I came home I went outside and read a bit of Binti: Home. It was nice that I’d read so many graphic novels during day five, because I spent the majority of my day procrastinating. But BookTube-A-Thon is still loads of fun and I’m sad that it’s almost over.
