Mythothon Round 2: Norse Suggestions

mythothon

 

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.

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 the announcement and sign-up post for the Hamilthon Readathon — where you can find out all the details about how it works and the full list of prompts — click here.

I’ve not decided which of the five paths I’m going to take yet, so I’ve picked something out for each prompt anyway. I think I’m going to go for Alexander and possibly Jefferson though.

Are you taking part in this readathon?

Have you decided what you’ll be reading for it?

Have you read any of my choices? What did you think of them?
