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:
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
