#IronTomeAThon TBR

The Iron Tome A Thon is a readathon running throughout July, hosted by Bookshelves and Paperbacks. You can find all the details of the challenges in the announcement post here. I’m going to aim for the seven optional prompts then, if I’ve got time, I’ll just try to fit in as many adult fantasy books as I can. I do have a couple of other things I’m planning to read next month too, so we’ll see how I get on.

What do you think of the choices on my TBR?

For this readathon, I’ll be playing for #HouseStark! Let me know if we’re on the same team.

  1. Toby!! ❤

    Pretty much the only books I defintiely want to read for this are The Dragon Republic and The Fifth Season, but I'll try to read more than that. Trying to build a TBR for this made me realise how much of the fantasy on my TBR that I actually want to read is YA, though.

    1. I’ve noticed the same, especially on the TBR I wanted to read soon. Even more especially since I realised I should really get reading a YALC TBR. 😂😅 But we’ll see how it goes. Looking these up renewed my interest in a lot of them.

    1. Skin Game’s a reread for me, but it’s one of my favourites in the series so I’ve been wanting too for a while 😊
      Certain Dark Things has been on my kindle for sooooo long lol!

      1. Nice! I’ll be glad to finally catch up with Skin Game, since I know the short story collections have stories that take place after Skin Game and I want to read those lol :p Yeah I’ve been getting into wanting to read Certain Dark Things much more now

  2. Ah, I’m so excited that you’re participating! Go Team Stark (I’m on Team Lannister just because, even though House Stark is my favorite house 😂). I think I might be reading Certain Dark Things and Red Sister too! Hope you enjoy all the books you pick up!
