I did my first BookBuddyAthon back in September of last year and am doing one again. Once again Heather is my buddy. Lucky her.
This overlaps with Bout of Books quite a bit so my TBR pile is for both.
1) Choose three books and get your buddy to pick one from them for you to read
Heather chose You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day (The other two I had given her to choose from where Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling and Yes Please by Amy Poehler). I'm super excited she chose this one as it's the one I really wanted to read.
2) Buddy read a book with your buddy
We decided to read a book we both got for Uppercase. Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw was the latest one and and it has some similarities with Fangirl which we both read together in January and loved so fingers crossed.
3) Read a book with your buddy's favourite colour on
I chose Hawkeye, Vol. 4: Rio Bravo by Matt Fraction since red is Heather's favorite color. I just finished the third one and really liked it so am looking forward to this one.
4) Read a book that starts with the first letter of your buddys name
I double upped here and am using Hawkeye, Vol. 4 for both of these challenges.
5) Read a book that you want to... just because
I have a few choices here. Cinderella, Vol. 1: From Fabletown with Love by Chris Roberson counts for a Listopia challenge as does Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. Lazarus, Vol. 4: Poison by Greg Rucka is one I have been looking forward to for awhile and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater is one I'm already reading and would really like to finish. We'll see what I feel like reading when the time comes.
I can't wait to start this RAT!
