Top Five Books with Celestial Titles

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

Each week we’ll pick 5 books 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. 

PLEASE NOTE: Although this post is inspired by Devouring Books’ Top 5 series, this prompt is of my own devising and not officially one of Amanda’s suggestions.

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

As always, in no particular order…

Pixarathon 2021

The latest round of Pixarathon is upon us! I really enjoyed this readathon last year, especially the Woody’s Round-Up spin-off. You could really tell that the creator (@literarylily1) put a lot of thought into it. Last summer wasn’t the most successful reading period for me, so I’m really looking forward to tacking this new round.

There are 17 prompts, covering all the Pixar movies minus most sequels. This round is also adding in the idea of ‘routes’. Each route has a theme, a unique prompt, and a selection of movies you should read in order to complete it.

I’ll be picking the Monster Route, because it has great films (although I still need to watch Luca, but it looks so good!), and because I love anything monster themed. If I can, I’ll try and squeeze these four films onto my watchlist for the month too.

If I finish these five, I’ll see how my reading fits into the other film prompts, but these will be my priorities.

Merlin Readathon TBR

@merlinreadathon is running from the 1st to the 15th August.

I used to love all the cheesy BBC fantasy show campness this show had, so I just had to join in. If I get around to it, I might even rewatch a few of the episodes, although most of the ones I recall best are from the earlier ‘Monster of the Week’ seasons. Did you have a favourite episode?

Since, if I had magic, I’d definitely be using it to it’s full potential all over the place (and probably getting spotted just as often as Merlin does), of course I’ll be aiming to become a fully fledged Mage on my magical quest.

Top Ten Recent Books I [could…] Read In One Sitting

July 20: Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time)

There are ten of the best books I’ve recently read that you could probably read in a single sitting (maybe if you have a nice, long afternoon lazing about in the summer sun?). All these books are 300 pages of less.
