Am I the crazy person that’s going to try and participate in two readathons at once? Yes yes I am. I recently posted my Tome Topple TBR, in which I’m hoping to read four big books over the next weeks (you can take a look here). But I also really wanted to join in on this readathon because it sounds fun and I have so many good fantasy books to read!
This readathon is being hosted by Penguin books and runs from today (the 18th) to the 25th of November. If you want to know more you can take a look at their website here!
So there are eight challenges and I’ve picked a book for each one. It’s unlikely I’ll manage to read all eight but you never know, so here goes!
1. Read the first book in a series
For this I’m going to try and read Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart because it’s been on my TBR for ever and it sounds so good!
2. Read A Book That’s Been On Your TBR Too Long
I thought for this one I could finally pick up The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo. It’s such a beautiful book and I can dip in and out because it’s short stories.
3. Read An LQBTQ Fantasy
I’m so excited to pick up Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst. I’ve had this book for Christmas a while ago and I keep meaning to read it so I’m definitely making it a priority this time around!
4. Read A Diverse Fantasy
I’m going to pick up Mirage for this one after meaning to read it for another readathon and not getting around to it. It seems quite short too so I’m hoping I can fly through this one.
5. Read A book with multiple POVs
Another fantasy I’ve been meaning to read for so long is Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau. This book sounds terrific and I haven’t seen that many reviews for it so I’m hoping it will be a good one.
6. Read A New Fantasy
I recently got sent a copy of Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa and I’m participating in the blog tour at the end of the month so I figured this would be the perfect prompt to read this one.
7. Read A Sequel
The author Josie Jaffrey sent me a copy of her book The Gilded King and I loved it so much. She very kindly sent me the second book in the series, The Silver Queen last month and I’m itching to read it so now I have no excuses!
8. A Booktube Recommended Book
For this I’m going with Neverworld Wake by Marisha Peshl. I’ve seen so many booktubers talk about this book that I figured it would be a great one to read for the readathon.
So that’s my TBR for the Falling Into Fantasy readthon! If you’ve read any of these definitely let me know what you thought!
