Olympic Games Readathon TBR

Today it’s just the one of us writing this, as it’s just me who’s decided to take part in the Olympic Games readathon. I’m a little late to this readathon as it started at the beginning of the month, but when I saw that Ishi, Ally, Nicole and Sasha were hosting a Percy Jackson themed readathon, I was so excited! I’ve never taken part in a readathon before, but thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give one a go, even if I am a few days late.

I took the quiz to discover that my godly parent is Apollo, which I’m very happy about 🙂 Despite how much I love it, I’m not the fastest reader in the world, especially when I’ve got A Level work to do, so I thought this readathon would help me keep up with my reading. You can find out more about the Olympic Games Readathon on the dedicated twitter page @OlympicGaames.

So, without further ado, here are my chosen books for the challenge:

The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare

Prompt: Healing – read a book you know will make you happy

Book: The Red Scrolls of Magic. I can’t believe I still haven’t gotten around to reading this yet, but I thought this prompt would give me the perfect opportunity to finally get around to it. I love anything by Cassandra Clare and an entire novel featuring Magnus and Alec is sure to put a smile on my face!

All the Weyrs of Pern by Anne McCaffrey

Prompt: Read a book that starts with the letter A

Book: All the Weyrs of Pern. I’ve read many of Anne McCaffrey’s books and thoroughly enjoyed them, especially the Harper Hall trilogy, so I can’t wait to return to the world of Pern!

Dune by Frank Herbert

Prompt: As the god of prophecy, Apollo can often predict the future. Read a book you predict will be a 5-star read.

Book: Dune. This is one of my mum’s favourite books and she’s usually an excellent judge of books, so I’m pretty certain this will be a great read! Also, with a remake of the movie currently in the works, I thought I’d better make sure I’ve read the book before it comes out!

The Clone Wars by Karen Traviss

Prompt: The Twin Archers – Apollo and Artemis look out for each other. Complete a prompt that honours Artemis.

Book: The Clone Wars. This book was recommended to me by my sister (the coauthor of this blog) and she informed me that it perfectly suited the Artemis prompt “On a quest many years ago, a team of half blood and hunters rescued Artemis from the Titans. Read a book featuring a rescue mission.” as it’s centred around the rescue of a baby huttlet.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling

Prompt: Music to my ears – listen to an audiobook.

Book: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. As I’ve never listened to an audiobook before, I thought I’d return to this old favourite! Some of the cast are reading out the chapters over on the Wizarding World website, so i thought this would be perfect for my audiobook.

So, that’s it! Are any of you guys joining the Olympic Games Readathon? Let me know in the comments and happy reading!

      1. The book I’m reading at the moment, the third book in Brandon Sanderson’s “Stormlight Archive”, could fit into two of the categories in your readathon – it definitely makes me happy, but it could also be classed as a rescue mission, because the fate of an entire world hangs in the balance…
