My #Mythothon2 TBR

mythothon

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!

Princess-A-Thon TBR

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

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.

#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.

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?
