Here are my plans for the second part of the June Marvel Readathon (#MarvelAThon) created by Jamieson at jamishelves.
The recs I’ve included are just a small selection of books I’ve enjoyed which fit the prompts, and in some cases (where I hadn’t read enough) some I think will be good. Anything I haven’t read is marked with a *. I’ve tried not to include follow-ups in a series unless they can stand alone.
If you want any more info about the books, or about how they fit the prompts, just leave a note in the comments. I’ll be putting up a post for Phase 3 next Friday, and you can find my post for Phase 1 here.
Iron Man 3: Tony Stark has to make some hard decisions in this movie. Read a book that will challenge you
TBR: Burr by Gore Vidal. This isn’t my usual type of historical fiction but I really want to know more about Burr thanks to Hamilton so I’m going to give this a try.
