This month I’ll be taking part in two Game of Thrones inspired reading challenges: #AGameofBooksathon (which has 11 prompts and a team/House aspect) and #IronThroneReadalong (where we’ll be re-reading the whole A Song of Ice and Fire series over 34 weeks).
Iron Throne Readalong
You can find out all the details of #IronThroneReadalong over on Novel Knight’s blog at this link. For June, we’ll be aiming to get through most of A Game of Thrones. It’ll be the second time I’ve read the series, so I’m looking forward to seeing what I’ll notice now I’ve read the rest of the books and seen the full tv series.
A Game of Booksathon
In this readathon we each get to choose a House team to play along with. Since the Starks are a pretty big crowd already, I’m going to go with my second favourite, House Tyrell, home of my sassy heroines, Margaery and Olenna.
There are 3 rounds for this readathon, one for June, one for July and one for the rest of the year. Round 2 is based around reading different genres, so I’ll pick those nearer July. Round 3 is to continue ASOIAF which should overlap nicely with the Iron Throne Readalong. My choices for the Round 1 prompts are below.
