Ali here ~
I have not participated in a single readathon all year, but here I am nonetheless trying to squeeze 2 into the month of July. I guess I’m feeling a bit brave! Or, I just couldn’t resist the awesomeness of this Medieval-A-Thon hosted by Holly Hearts Books.
Who says summer is only for contemporary? Nay I say! Welcome to Medievalathon where the more you read, the higher your nobility! PLUS build yourself up some armour and weapons by participating in the prompts. You can hear all about this Medieval-A-Thon HERE.
Only 6 books to reach King/Queen status??? Easy Peasy!
Here’s the first set of prompts to build up your armour ~
(Links take you to Goodreads)
- A book where a character fights for the throne ~ The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
- A Book with a dragon on the cover ~ Radioactive Revolution by Richard Hummel
- A shiny book ~ Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
- Read a thick paperback ~ Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
- A book that has yellowed over time ~ Villette by Charlotte Bronte
- A book with red on the dust jacket ~ Red Rising by Pierce Brown
And to take up your weapons ~
- A book with something pointy on the cover ~ Scythe by Neal Shusterman
- A book with assassins ~ Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
- A book with elves ~ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
- A book with mercenaries ~ Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
So, I’m seriously doubting that I’m going to get through all of these books. But this is my wish list so to speak. We shall see!!Are you participating in the Medieval-A-Thon? Which books would you choose for the different categories???Ali
