My #Mythothon2 TBR


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!

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. 


Mythothon Round 2: Norse Suggestions



If you’re interested in joining me for #mythothon2 and haven’t checked out the announcement, all the details about the prompts and prizes are in this post.

For this readathon, the books you choose DO NOT need to be mythology related to count, they just need to fit the prompt. I wanted to keep #mythothon2 as accessible – and fun — as possible, so I didn’t want to make reading a lot of similar or heavy books a must. 

However, I know a lot of you might want to go that extra mile and use as many books inspired by actual Norse mythology as possible. I’ve read very few Norse retellings myself so this is by no means a comprehensive list, but largely suggestions of books I’ve heard good things so you can explore. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments, and remember to post your TBRs so we can all cheer each other on when the readathon starts on September 1st.


#mythothon Round 2: Announcement Post


Climb the World Tree, Yggdrasill!

Learn the secrets of true wisdom and magic with Odin.

Make mischief with Loki.

Fight alongside Thor.



Sign-ups are open now and will remain open throughout the readathon (latecomers are welcome!).

The readathon itself will run from 1st to the 30th September in your own timezone.

Please feel free to post Twitter updates, reading sprints, Instagram photos or just generally share how you’re getting on with the readathon using the hashtag #mythothon2. Follow and tag @mythothon for updates, info and retweets.

Any questions, just let me know!


Cozyopoly August 2019 TBR


If you’re a fan of mysteries, like I am, you really need to check out Courtagonist’s Cozyopoly board. Her video is here (and cozy fans should check out all her others too). It’s exactly what it sounds like: a Monopoly-inspired way to pick your TBR. I used the board back in May to pick three books for my TBR and this month I’m starting on the square I ended with and continuing from there to pick another three.

I’ll be reading three next month along with my NEWTs Readathon TBR.


NEWTS Readathon 2019 TBR

It’s time for the NEWTs examinations again! Back in April, I sat the OWLs readathon and was able to pass all twelve subjects which has given me a lot of flexibility in what careers and subjects I want to try for in this second part of the Magical Readathon. You can read my round-up (and my twelve ratings) for that part of the readathon here.

For all the information about these readathons, check out BookRoast’s channel, especially this video all about this round of the NEWTS.


#IronTomeAThon TBR

The Iron Tome A Thon is a readathon running throughout July, hosted by Bookshelves and Paperbacks. You can find all the details of the challenges in the announcement post here. I’m going to aim for the seven optional prompts then, if I’ve got time, I’ll just try to fit in as many adult fantasy books as I can. I do have a couple of other things I’m planning to read next month too, so we’ll see how I get on.

What do you think of the choices on my TBR?

For this readathon, I’ll be playing for #HouseStark! Let me know if we’re on the same team.
