I was perusing the interwebs as usual as I sipped my coffee this morning, I know, I know I should of been reading. I started to scroll trough my YouTube Subscriptions and saw that Brittany the Bibliophile had uploaded. Obviously I wanted to watch it, then I saw that she was announcing her participation and co-hosting of the Mythothon. Honestly I was in already and I hadn’t even heard the prompts.
After watching I learnt that there are different groups lead by different BookTubers who are different gods with a different sign. Brittnay is Aphrodite and her sign is Earth. Each group has a group book as well as 4 other prompts. So being in Brittany’s group my prompts are the following:
- Read a book with an LGBTQIA+ main character
- Read a book with a powerful and feminine main character
- Read an award winning work
- Read a middle grade
and out last prompt is to read the group book which is ‘To Kill a Kingdom’ By Alexandra Christo.
Now I know that I am already participating in the N.E.W.Ts Readathon, but I am going to double up as many books as I can. I’ll only be adding ‘To Kill a Kingdom’ By Alexandra Christo
Here is what I plan to read:
For the first prompt to read ‘a book with an LGBTQIA+ Main character’ I am going to read ‘Heartstopper: Volume 2’ By Alice Oseman. Which I am reading for a Defence Against the Dark Arts prompt in the N.E.W.Ts.
For the second prompt ‘read a book with a powerful and feminine main character’ I chose ‘Crown of Feathers’ By Nicki Pau Preto, which I think will fit the prompt and I am reading for a Care of Magical Creatures Prompt in the N.E.W.Ts.
For the third prompt ‘Read an an award winning book’ I took a while to find one but I stumbled upon ‘Lumber Janes’ By Noelle Stevenson. I’ve had this graphic novel on my TBR for ages, and considering it is a graphic novel it won’t add to much to my N.E.W.Ts.
Prompt number 4 is to read ‘a middle grade’ which I am currently reading for the N.E.W.Ts which is ‘The Wings of Olympus’ By Kallie George. So I will hopefully be able to check this one off very soon.
Finally the 5th read will be the group book which is ‘To Kill a Kingdom’ by Alexandra Christo. This will be another addition to the N.E.W.Ts readathon, unless I can find some where to fit it in.
Fingers crossed I can completed both!
Are you participating in any readathons this month?
