This is a fun year-long readathon where you focus on reading series, completing a bingo card each season and completing an intense week-long readathon if you want. This spring it runs from 20th March to 20th June so it has already started but I’m sure a few days won’t matter! The full details about the readathon is here, the twitter is here and the announcement video is down below.
This sounds like my kind of readathon because I have a tendency to start series and then not finish them at all. I will probably be taking part in the intense readathon 11th June to 17th June just to catch up. I’m only going to plan one line on the bingo board otherwise I tend to go really off kilter on these massively long TBRs.

This is a weekly blog meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes and it runs on Goodreads. This week’s theme is favourite SFF outside of books. This one is a little harder than books because I don’t have a handy Goodreads for not-books and so I will forget things.

Nikko needs a scandal. Something, anything, that will keep media eyes on him and far away from the fight for his deadbeat brother’s children. When he sees Jake Hallow in a bar, it seems a perfect solution. What would cause more noise than planting a kiss on a ruler-straight country star? He didn’t expect Jake to kiss him back.
Jake’s faced a lot of surprises in the forty-four years he’s been alive. But being kissed senseless by the beautiful Nikko Star is something else entirely, and he doesn’t at all know what to do with the long-banked feelings that Nikko turns into a blaze. Or the disappointment he feels when he learns the real reason Nikko kissed him.
But hearing Nikko’s story, Jake decides to help, and agrees to give the world a fake love affair for the sake of protecting a couple of kids. And he’s always believed in putting on one hell of a show—no matter how much it leaves him hurting when the lights go down.

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.+
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
