Merlin Readathon TBR

@merlinreadathon is running from the 1st to the 15th August.

I used to love all the cheesy BBC fantasy show campness this show had, so I just had to join in. If I get around to it, I might even rewatch a few of the episodes, although most of the ones I recall best are from the earlier ‘Monster of the Week’ seasons. Did you have a favourite episode?

Since, if I had magic, I’d definitely be using it to it’s full potential all over the place (and probably getting spotted just as often as Merlin does), of course I’ll be aiming to become a fully fledged Mage on my magical quest.

Meet Your Myth Taker: Path Or Pantheon TBR

The #MeetYourMythTaker readathon ran by @MythTakeReads was one of my favourite readathons last year — I had great fun making and building up my character and her story. This year I’m really excited to dig into the #PathOrPantheon round, based on five mythological pantheons and five themed paths.

I’ve actually got a fair bit of time off work in July, so I’ve decided to be a bit ambitious with my TBR. It’s been a while since I’ve managed more than 20 books in a month, but I have done it before, so why not try? If nothing else, it’ll give me a big pile of possibilities to pick from.

So, here we go! I’ve chosen tackle the Greek Pantheon prompts and the Paths of the Home, the Underworld, and War.

The goal of the #TrekAThon readathon is to beam back the crew of the USS Enterprise from a hostile planet.

You can find all the details in this blog post.

I’ve picked nine books for my TBR, one for each crewmember, including the group book The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet. I’ve had Long Way recommended to me by more than a few different friends and blogger whose opinions I really trust so it’s been on my TBR for (shh…) years. I’m really excited for this push to finally read it.

TrekAThon Round 1 – Announcement and Prompts

The crew of the USS Enterprise has beamed down to a hostile planet!

They need you — yes, YOU, fresh out of Starfleet Academy! — to operate the Transporter and whisk them back to safety.

Beam up as many crewmembers as possible before the end of the month.

Each book you read will power the Transporter and let you rescue one crewmember. Once you have brought Scotty back to the ship, the Chief Engineer will upgrade the Transporter and each book can power multiple transport beams (e.g. you can double on prompts).
