I know the O.W.L.S readathon literally just finished but I saw this readathon floating around on Twitter and honestly I couldn’t resist the idea of joining in. Especially with being in the house more I thought this would be the perfect way to try and tackle some of my TBR – in particular I’m trying to read predominantly Netgalley books that have been sitting on my shelf forever – that way I can fufill one of goals for 2020 to improve my Netgalley ratio.
The readathon runs for the month of May and you can find out more about it here. The aim is to read seven books of your choice, but there’s also a total of eighteen prompts. With me having such a good reading month in April I’ve decided to try my hand at all eighteen of them. Let’s dive in!
A book that has yellowed over time: Shade’s Children – Garth Nix
A pristine book: The Book of Koli – M. R. Carey
A shiny book: Aurora Burning – Ami Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
A book with your favourite colour on the spine: Ash Princess – Laura Sebastian
Under 300 pages: The Scapegracers – Hannah Abigail Clarke
Green on the dust jacket: Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires – Grady Hendrix

So those are my picks for the Medieval-A-Thon. I’m not sure I’ll manage to read every single one but here’s hoping I can get through quite a few. If you’re participating I’d love to know what you’re planning to read!
