#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.

The challenge is running throughout the entire month of March — 01 March to 31st March 2020 in your own timezone.

I’ve decided to play on #TeamBurr, so I’ll be reading five books for those prompts and then counting pages for whatever else I read next month too. There’s a couple of other readathons I want to take part in so we’ll see what books get added for those later.

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.
