I’m starting this a little late as I only just discovered this brilliant Game of Thrones themed readathon from Noura over at Perks of Being Noura. I love all things Game of Thrones so I thought this would be the perfect readathon to challenge myself to get some of those great big fantasy tomes off my TBR.
The readathon runs the whole month of June and you can find out all the details here. There are 11 prompts as well as the option to read the first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series (I’m skipping this because I’ve read the series a few times).
I’m hoping I don’t burn myself out reading too many fantasy books but a lot of these I can use for multiple prompts, and I can always swap them out for something shorter – here goes!
The Game of Thrones: First book in a series/trilogy
Lost Gods – Micah Yongo
House Targaryen: Book with a mythical creature/dragons
Stormtide – Den Patrick
Daenerys: Book featuring a strong female character
The Poppy War – R. F. Kuang
Westeros: Book set in a fictional place
The Wolf – Leo Carew
House Tyrell: A book with a green cover or a plant on it
The Girl King – Mimi Yu
House Stark: A book with family dynamics or siblings
The Deathless – Peter Newman
House Lannister: Book with a red cover
Maresi – Maria Turtschaninoff
House Greyjoy: Book with pirates or a story set at sea
These Rebel Waves – Sarah Raasch
House Baratheon: Book with a king/queen or royalty
Girls of Paper and Fire – Natasha Ngan
A Clash of Kings: Read a sequel
Soul of the Sword – Julie Kagawa
Wildlings: Read a paranormal book
Perfectly Preventable Deaths – Dierdre Sullivan
So those are the books I’m hoping to tackle for the readathon. If you’ve read any I’d love to know what you thought of them (and which ones to prioritise). If you’re participating I’d love to know what you’re planning to read!
