Golden Girls Readathon Rd9 TBR

I’ve really enjoyed all the Golden Girls readathons I’ve taken part in (and I’m currently doing pretty well with the Yearlong Challenge) so this is a no brainer for taking part in. This round returns to the yearly ‘Best Girl’ competition, which I don’t think I’ve taken part in before, so I’m excited. For my team, I’ll be going with life-of-the-party, Blanche!

Dessertathon 2022 TBR

Dessertathon is a full month June readathon taking place June 2022 and hosted by Jane @ The Bookaholic on YouTube.

There’s quite a lot of details for this readathon — teams, ingredients, and recipes — so check out the Announcement Video here.

I’m joining Team Red Velvet Royals, meaning we’ll be specifically focused (extra points) on reading retellings and mythology. Instead of picking from the twenty ingredients prompts at random, I’m choosing one of the six recipes and reading the related prompts. If I have time (or my mood reading lines up) I’ll see if I grab any extra ingredients along the way.

To make Strawberry Shortcake, I’ll need flour, eggs, sugar, whipped cream and strawberries.

#HistoricalFictionReadathon TBR

Katie at Books and Things always runs my favourite ‘classic’ themed readathons. There’s the yearly Victober, and last May she had a standalone 1900 to 1950 Readathon, which I really enjoyed. This year, her May readathon is focused on reading historical fiction rather than classics. Since I have plenty of historicals on my TBR, this seems like a good time to tackle them.

There are seven challenges, but none are compulsory. I very much doubt I’ll get to all the books listed here, but I’ve doubled up a couple of challenges and skipped “Read a Classic Work of Historical Fiction” just in case.

Do you enjoy historical fiction? Which periods?

Magical Hop-a-thon Rd2: DisneyLand Paris Turns 30! TBR

I really enjoyed the first round of
@rachelcerys_xo‘s Magical Hop-a-thon (@magicalhopathon) when it ran in October. Not only are the graphics super cute, I loved re-living the memories of DisneyWorld, especially in the middle of all the covid-related closures and stay-at-home-ing.

Hopathon Two is celebrating Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary. Having been to the Paris park a fair few times, I’m really excited to re-live those memories too. I’m not sure how well I’ll do with this TBR — at the moment I’m neck deep in revising my own writing and beta-reading for others — but I’ve picked out the books I’d choose just in case.

For this readathon you read an entry ticket, ride, show and character spot for each park. To make it more fun, I’m picking my actual favourites from the park, before looking at the prompt.

Mythothon Round 6 TBR

Round 6 of Mythothon focuses on Egyptian mythology, most specifically the story of Isis, Osiris and their traitorous brother Set. There are three teams to choose from and up to six books for each. I’ll be joining Team Isis.

For more information, including the story and prompts, check out the Announcement Post here.

Mythothon Round 6 – The Story of Osiris, Set and Isis


Osiris was the king of Egypt, married to Isis, a wise queen. But their brother Seth was jealous, and he hatched a plot to kill the Osiris and take the throne.

In this round of the readathon, you’ll follow out the story of these three gods. There are twelve parts to the story, each with their own reading prompt. Together, they tell a tale of betrayal, dedication and resurrection.

Choose from: ISIS, OSIRIS or SET.

Each of the three characters has their own important part to play. You will be given four prompts to read, decided by which god you’ve chosen to support. Each god also comes with a unique prompt related to their powers and areas of expertise.

That will give you a total of five prompts to complete the readathon.

GreekGodAthon 2022 TBR

I’m already in a mythology mood for next month–with the March Mythical Madness Readathon running and planning out Mythothon Round 6 for April–so when GreekGodAthon was announced, I was really excited to pick a God and a Team to play for.

The readathon has a lot going on–fourteen prompts and fourteen gods to play for, split between two group teams (Chaos and Control). The points system is affected by the teams you’ve chosen, and each god comes with their own powers to make the challenges more personalised.

It’s all explained far better in the announcement video.

I’ve decided to support Dionysus, putting me on Team Control.

March Mythical and Mystery Madness Possibility Piles

Two things I adore? Mythology and mysteries. Funnily enough, there’s a March Madness readathon for each of those running next month. Naturally, I want to take part in both, but I’ll be keeping things flexible and choosing from this stack of audio, eBooks and physical copies I already own or have access to through Scribd.

#FFFebruary Possibility Pile 2022

February is for reading sapphic books! 

As in previous years, I’ll be trying to read as many of the f/f books I currently own as I can. I’ve got plenty sitting on shelves, kindles and Scribd wishlists, so I’d like to clear some of my backlist. Then there’s a few newer ones that tickle my fancy too.

I’m in the mood for soft/cozy contemporary or historical romance at the moment, but I’m not sure where to start, so any recs would be much appreciated.

This post will give me a list to pick from as the month goes on, and a reminder of where the books I already own are.

The Sims Readathon TBR

The Sims readathon (@simsreadathon) is a monthlong readathon for February 2022 created by @ashleysreads. There are four teams, based on four classic Sims families, and prompts based on the original games expansion packs.

I’m a big Sims fan and, since my current Sims 4 save game involves the Goths, I couldn’t resist supporting one of my favourite Sims families.
