Amanda’s Mythathon TBR

Hi, lovelies! Yes, I am here with another TBR post today. There are just so many good readathons happening this month! So this particular readathon is called Myth-A-Thon and it’s hosted by the always wonderful Jesse from Bowties & Books. This is a month-long readathon with four different teams. Each captain has been cast as a mythic God and associated with the four elements. I’ve chosen to be on Team Hades – Fire because I am a Leo and it is Leo season and also I love Hades a lot. So this was the perfect team for me. There are a few challenges for this months reading so let’s get to it!

Hades is the God of flame: Read a hotly anticipated book

How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow

Hades famously possesses an invisible cap: Read a book about a protagonist who is invisible to society

The Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes

Hades also owns a chair of forgetfulness: Read a book you’ve been shelving for far too long 

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

Hades collects subjects for his kingdom and won’t let them leave: Read a book where the main characters must escape an immoral rule

These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch

Read the group book

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
I’ve already read this so I’m going to read another BATB retelling:
Beastly by Alex Flinn

This is what I’ve come up with for Myth-A-Thon! I’ve tried to mix a few books here and there from my two other TBR lists so that I can manage to share books for all the different challenges I’m going to attempt to complete this month. Let me know what you’ll be reading this August below!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Amanda’s Tome Topple TBR

Hi, lovelies! Tome Topple Round Eight! This round of Tome Topple will be running from the 13th-26th. If you’re new here check out Sam, the creator of Tome Topple, in her video here. Tome Topple is a readathon where we will only be reading books that are  500 pages or more. It’s a chance to tackle those intimidating books that are huge and taking up space on our TBR shelves. This is one of my favorite readathons because I always feel super motivated to read a ton and topple those tomes! There are a few optional challenges that  I like to use to make my TBR list for each round.
