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.

Welcome to Medieval-a-thon! 🛡 Who says Summer is for contemporary?! Nay I say! You’ve been invited to a month long ceremony beginning the first day of July where all will be decided where you stand! 🛡 Swipe to see the second image. The more you read the higher your nobility ranking. Read 1 book and be a lowly peasant working in the fields as a farmer. Read 6 books and become a king or queen to rule your own kingdom! Show your peers chivalry and honor and be rewarded with a lower TBR number! 🛡 Swipe to see the third and fourth images. Here you will build your armour set! All of these prompts are optional. If you want to run around nakey in the world by all means, go ahead. Just try to avoid the local guards. But if you want to protect yourself against your enemies, you should probably get yourself armor and some weapons. Hack, slash, and wack your way through July. 🛡 Want more details and specifics on the prompts? Be sure to watch my YouTube video where I run through them all, give advice, and prepare you for battle! Link is in my bio! 🛡 Be sure to use #medievalathon in your relevant posts so I can take a peek at what you’re reading and how your journey is coming along! Tag some friends below who you think may want to join the guild and share this with your fellow book warriors! 🛡 Also a huge thank you to Kat from @katsreadingcorner for helping me with some of these prompts! • • • #ilovereading #ilovebooks #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookish #bookaholic #booklover #bibliophile #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookobsessed #bookworm #read #reader #reading #bookblogger #booklife #readathon #medievalathon
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.
