My #Mythothon2 TBR

mythothon

In case you missed it, I’m hosting a readathon next month! It runs throughout September and is themed around Norse mythology. You can find the announcement and details on this post, or check out the @mythothon account and #mythothon2 hashtag on twitter.

For my TBR, I’ve picked out thirteen books, which should give me three bingo lines. I’m going on holiday at the end of this month, so I’m not sure how much reading I’ll get done but I’m excited about every one of these books so I’ll be giving it a good try.

If you’re joining me in this readathon, let me know what your TBR looks like!

This Top 5 series is a weekly meme created by Amanda @ Devouring Books.

Each week we’ll 5 book featuring the common theme provided. These can be books that we’ve read, or ones that are still on our TBRs. I’ll note beside each one if I’ve read the book yet or not, and provide a link to my review if I have one. 

Feel free to share your own favourites or give me more TBR suggestions in the comments.

Notes and Highlights: Re-reading A Clash of Kings

I’ve been meaning to reread A Song of Ice and Fire for a while now and, with Game of Thrones finishing and the #IronThroneReadalong starting, now seemed like the perfect time. I didn’t want to write up full reviews, because I’m never sure what to talk about when it’s a reread, so I thought I’d share some of the lines I found interesting instead.

Do you review rereads? What do you write about? 

If you’re taking part in this readalong, let me know how you’re finding it in the comments!

Princess-A-Thon TBR

I really wasn’t planning on joining in any other readathons in September — I’m running a Norse mythology inspired Mythothon Round 2 myself — but I couldn’t resist Princess-A-Thon. I’ll be in Walt Disney World for the last week of the month (and into October) so it was definitely fate that I take part!

Princess-A-Thon is being organised by Sage at Sage Shelves and you can find the full sign-up details here.

The Princess-A-Thon is a month-long readathon running from September 1st to September 30th 2019 with challenges themed around different fictional princesses.

There are 16 challenges, including reading our group book. Combining challenges is allowed, but you may only count 1 book for 3 challenges.
