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.

 

Doll-Divine-Creation-wide

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Find all the information over in the Announcement post here.

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.
