#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.

Ocarina of Time readathon TBR #2

Buy The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D from the Humble Store

I posted the first half  of my TBR for @KateADale‘s Ocarina of Time readathon earlier in the month. 

Since the readathon runs over two months — May and June — I split my TBR. Now, in June, I’ll be doing the dungeons prompts.

You can find all the details at this announcement post.


Here’s my TBR for the second part of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Readathon.

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.



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.

Ocarina of Time Readathon TBR #1

I played along with the A Link to the Past readathon last year, and even though I’m not a Zelda player, I had a lot of fun with the prompts. So, here I go again!

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.

In June, I’ll do the dungeons prompts.

SeaMAYden-a-thon TBR


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!

Medieval-A-Thon 2020 TBR

Hosted by Holly Hearts Books, the Medieval-A-Thon is all about increasing your nobility, assembling armor, clothing and weapons by the amount of  books you read! It runs May 1st to 31st and you can find all the information in Holly’s video.

I’ll be combing this readathon with a few others (4 readathons this month, ahhhhh!) so I’m going to aim for the top ranking: Empress, by reading 7 books.

There’s a whole bunch of prompts to pick from, so here’s a look at the ones I’ll be tackling.

The fantasy genre is broad, and we are broad-minded. Whatever flavour of fantasy you prefer, we want to hear about it. Whether you’re planning to read books, watch movies, play games, listen to podcasts or celebrate the breadth and depth of the fantasy genre in some other way, you’re welcome in our party.

Classic Women 2020 Part 1: Evelina, Belinda and The Ninescore Mystery

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.
