Okay, so I know I posted a July TBR not so long ago: my whole July is basically taken up by the #IronTomeAThon. But I found out about #medievalathon through Katie @ Melting Pages and I thought, “What two readathons have every went together better than medieval and adult fantasy?” So I’ve managed to pretty much overlap both TBRs with only a little prioritising and will be aiming for both!
Let me know if you’re taking part! I’ll be posting updates as I go via Twitter.
Medieval-a-thon is hosted by Holly Hearts Books, and all of the graphics belong to her. You can find out all the rules and details over in her announcement video.
Sword: A book with something pointy on the cover.
Chimes at Midnight (October Daye #7) by Seanan MacGuire: Toby’s holding a pretty stabby looking dagger there. This is one I’d be reading for the #ADayeAMonth group anyway, so I’m glad it fits into both my readathons this month too.
Daggers: A book with assassins.
Red Sister (Book of the Ancestor #1) by Mark Lawrence: “At the Convent of Sweet Mercy young girls are raised to be killers…” Assassin NUNS!
Bow: A book with elves.
The Goblin Emperor (The Goblin Emperor #1) by Katherine Addison: Doing double-duty here. The protagonist is half-goblin, half-elf and living amongst the elven court.
Axe: A book with mercenaries.
Skin Game (The Dresden Files #15) by Jim Butcher: This is a re-read for me, so I know there’s at least two mercenaries in the rag-tag heist team.
Crown: A book where a character fights for the throne.
The Goblin Emperor (The Goblin Emperor #1) by Katherine Addison: Fighting more through politics than blades I think, but still a proper fight for survival.
Helmet: A book with a dragon on the cover.
Breastplate: A shiny book.
Assassin’s Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy #1) by Robin Hobb. I’ve been meaning to read something by Hobb for yeeeears! My copy has the title in shiny gold foil.
Greaves: Read a thick paperback.
A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2) by George R.R. Martin: At over 900 pages, this one’s a chunker. I’ll be continuing the #IronThroneReadalong with this one.
Boots: A book that has yellowed over time.
A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2) by George R.R. Martin: It’s a library book and clearly been in stock for a while as the pages are looking pretty dark.
Cloak: A book with red on the cover.
Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia: Greyscale and red.
