Hey guys! I am so excited to share with you guys my new series!
Arya Tries is my take on a trend I’ve been seeing on Booktube. Basically, if you haven’t been watching Booktube (give it a try it is awesome) A lot of booktubers are making vlogs where they challenge themselves to read in a specific way for a week or even longer and I wanted to join in. To get a better idea of what I’m talking about I’m going to link a couple of Kayla’s videos from Books and Lala. Following someone’s TBR, Reading her average daily pages for a month, and Books controlling what she eats for 24 hours.
There are tons more amazing videos out there doing similar challenges but Kayla was the first I saw doing this and I feel so inspired to try to do something similar on my blog. I’m too shy and awkward to make a vlog or a video but I do have this platform so I am really excited to try some of the ideas I have as well as some tried and true concepts on Booktube.
One of the things I want to try for myself is focusing on a genre or a trope and sharing my thoughts as I read through that theme. I tend not to read the same types of books back to back so I never really delve into the “meat” of a theme or really decide if I like them or not so I think it could be really fun to read a whole bunch of the same type of books back to back and share my thoughts. It could be a really fun experiment.
I also have some non-bookish challenges that I am interested in trying out as well that I will be sprinkling in throughout the series. These types of posts do take a lot longer to create so it is going to be a little while before the first one is posted since I’m just now setting the first one up but I am really excited about it and sharing with all of you my adventure.
Some of the topics I plan to cover include
- Reading my average page count daily
- listening to audiobooks exclusively for the month
- Eating food from books I’ve read
- Reading books in their original published language (not English)
- Trope Studies
- Exploring reading awards
- Re-reading childhood books
- Following Celebrity book clubs
Right now I’m working on my first post in this series and I am really excited to share it with you guys. I have a general idea of how I want to do this challenge but it’s going to be a while before the post goes live since I’m just starting the first challenge now. I have a lot planned and I’m honestly so pumped to get this challenge going.
