Readathon Updates #Tropeathon ~ 10/1/21

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week. I’ve been suffering with migraines this week, so I’m really hoping I can get through the weekend without a repeat performance. As long as I’m feeling okay I’m expecting to have lunch with my besties tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to that!

Let’s see what progress I made this week along with new TBRs~

Halloween Readathon

  • Classic Lit Spooky Read ~ The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
  • A Book in a Series ~ The Hand on the Wall by Maureen Johnson
  • A Book w/ Fall Vibes But No Spook ~ Crying Wolf by Rochelle Paige
  • Spin Off or Retelling of a Classic Spooky Story ~ Of Beast and Beauty by Chanda Hahn

  • A Book w/ a Murder ~ The Guest List by Lucy Foley
  • A Book w/ Mythical Creatures ~ Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim
  • A Horror or Thriller ~ The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe
  • An Urban Legend ~ The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

I am so very close to having a bingo! I’m currently reading Jane Eyre, which will fulfill the prompt for A Book That’s Also a Movie. This readathon goes until the end of the month, so I’m curious to see how many boxes I’ll mark off in October.


Magical Readathon: Orilium

  • The Novice Path Entrance: read a book with a map ~ Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim
  • Ashtorn Tree: a book that keeps tempting you (or top of your TBR) ~ What If You & Me by Roni Loren
  • The Mist of Solitude: read a standalone ~ Transcendence by Shay Savage
  • Ruin of the Skye: read a book featuring ghosts, a haunted house, or other supernatural elements ~ Three Trials by Kristy Cunning
  • Obsidian Falls: read a thriller or a mystery book ~ The Hand on the Wall by Maureen Johnson
  • Tower of Rumination: read a five star prediction ~ A Five-Minute Life by Emma Scott

The only prompt I didn’t read for this was Book With a School Setting, but I only had to read 2 out of the 7 this month, so I’m set! I’ll look forward to reading the different prompts for my character between now and April. I’ll share those as I complete them. I loved the video put out yesterday on getting placed into our guilds ~

I got two diamonds, a triangle, a circle, and a square, so I’m in the House of the Arcane. The quiz she put together was a lot of fun!

Today is the start of Tropeathon, which goes through the end of October, so I’m sharing my TBR for that today.

  • Second Chance ~ The Homecoming by Robyn Carr
  • Supernatural Being ~ Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
  • Coming of Age ~ The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna
  • Fated Mates ~ Heart Duel by Robin D. Owens
  • Time Travel ~ Jane in Love by Rachel Givney
  • Friends to Lovers ~ The Bright & the Pale by Jessica Rubinkowski
  • One Night Stand ~ Shadows of the Heart by Alexa Smart
  • Epic Quest ~ Eye of the Soul by Terri Rochenski
  • Forced Proximity ~ Sooner or Later by Debbie Macomber
  • Bully ~ Get Even by Gretchen McNeil
  • Who Did It? ~ Survive the Night by Riley Sager
  • Arranged Marriage ~ The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory
  • Age Gap ~ Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
  • Final Girl ~ The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix
  • Royalty ~ These Hollow Vows by Lexi Ryan
  • Dark Secret ~ The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen
  • Opposites Attract ~ Opposites Attract by Hailey North
  • Rebel Against Society ~ Brew by David Estes
  • Ghost House ~ Earth Angel by Kate Freiman
  • Enemies to Lovers ~ Surrender My Love by Johanna Lindsey
  • Music Star ~ Small Town Girl by LaVyrle Spencer
  • Tortured Hero/Heroine ~ The Wish Collector by Mia Sheridan
  • Techno Babble ~ This Golden Flame by Emily Victoria
  • Fake Dating ~ The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

I don’t have physical copies of The Final Girl Support Group or Survive the Night, so that’s why they’re pictured separately. I seriously doubt I follow this TBR, but it was still a lot of fun to put together!! You might have noticed that These Hollow Vows was on my Halloween Readathon TBR, but I found a spot for it on this one since I already read another book that fulfilled the prompt I had it on. I really want to read it! Now for the bonus ~

  • Reluctant Hero/Heroine ~ Absolutely, Positively by Jayne Ann Krentz
  • Chosen One ~ Ember of Night by Molly E. Lee
  • Forbidden ~ Thoughtful by S.C. Stephens

So, that’s it for my readathon updates. It was a lot today, but I’ve having a lot of fun with them! And I feel the need to mention again that I am not at all holding myself to these TBRs.

Happy Reading,

  1. I managed to read 3 books for the Magical Readathon which is what I expected I was going to complete. I will be reading some of the other prompts for that in October. I love your TBR for Tropeathon. I’ve only read one of the books on your TBR and that is The Fill In Boyfriend.
