Pixarathon TBR

I’m such a huge Disney and Pixar fan that signing up for this readathon was an absolute no brainer!

There’s 14 prompts and a challenge to ‘rewatch’ the prompts if you can in order to reach a total of 28 books.

For now, I’m going to aim for 15 books: one for each of the prompts and one rewatch. I’ve got a lot more free time this month but since it’s Camp NaNoWrioMo and I’m also taking part in two other readathons, I could end up reading loads or very little.

Some of these prompts were pretty tricky, so I’d love to hear suggestions in case I do squeeze in a few more ‘rewatchs’.

Pixarathon runs from 1st to 31st July.

The Twitter account with all the details is @Pixarathon.

Classic Women 2020 Part 2: Olive, Lady Audley’s Secret & The Lily and the Thorn

Image result for victorian painting

At the end of last year, I decided I really wanted to dig into classics in 2020. I challenged myself to read two classics a month, at least one of which was by a female author. I picked twelve women and created the Classic Women Reading Challenge. All the details are in this post. Check it out and feel free to join me!

 

I’m setting myself a personal target to try at least one novel by a ‘classic’ woman writer and at least one other classic (of any type/ author) each month next year. I’ll be combining my personal goals with some existing readathons: #Victober, #Georgianary, #ClassicsCommunity and #JaneAustenJuly. *Phew!*

I’ve picked 12 female authors who published work pre-1914. They’re all pretty prolific and pretty well-known — I think — so should be easy enough to find a good selection to choose from. 

 

From January to March, my classic female authors were Fanny Burney, Maria Edgeworth and Emmuska Orczy. Check out my thoughts on those here.

From April to June, my classic female authors were Dinah Maria Mulock Craik, Mary Elizabeth Braddon and Margaret Oliphant.

#Hamilthon: The #Hamilfilm Edition

Welcome to #Hamilthon, a readathon inspired by Hamilton: An American Musical.

 

Now, I know there are a lot of incredible readathons going on this summer, but I just couldn’t let this opportunity pass without marking it somehow.

To celebrate the release on Hamilton to Disney+ on July 3rd, we’re having a mini-round of our Hamilton themed readathon. This will be a shorter and more relaxed round, leaving plenty of time for watching the actual musical.

This round will run from 1st July to 14th July in your timezone.

Please feel free to follow the Instagram account (@hamilthon_read) and the Twitter account (@hamilthon_read) for updates throughout the month.

Use the hashtag (#hamilthon) so we can follow and RT your progress.

Make Your Myth Taker TBR

#MakeYourMythTaker is an amazing readathon coming in June from the team at @MythTakeReads. The prompts let you become one of 16 different fantasy/ folklore archetypes, but you can also switch paths and read extra books to customise you character.

I’m incredibly stoked about this readthon!

All the details are in the announcement video here.

Check out my character, Mythia, the backstory I’ve come up, and the TBR I need to create her.

 

Doll-Divine-Creation-wide

Mythia used her WITCH powers to train and excel as a KNIGHT. Sent on a dangerous quest, she gets captured and forced to become a GLADIATOR. In the end she escapes and, disillusioned with those in power, becomes an deadly ASSASSIN.

As you can see, Mythia needs to take 4 seperate paths: Knight, Witch, Gladiator and Assassin.

The readathon is actually going to run over two months — May and June. You can find all the details at this announcement post.

 

To tackle this readathon, I’m going to split it in two.

In May, I’ll do the weapons prompts.

From Leelyn’s Announcement post here:

Hey fam! So you know how I’m like obsessed with mermaids and stuff? And you know how I was curious about whether there were any mermaid readathons that I could jump on? Well, I did see some and I’m definitely going to join them.

And then my amazing friend Mir @ Fangirl Pixie Blog said that she was interested in hosting our very own readathon because she’s into mermaids and sea creatures too, and omg the rest is history!
