Fall Into Fantasy Wrap Up

This was a fantasy-themed readathon which ran from the 18th to the 25th November. The intro post is here.

I didn’t do that well on this readathon in terms of my TBR and I was combining two readathons, but I did manage to get some books from my TBR read.

  • Read a new fantasy book

Girls of Paper and Fire (Girls of Paper and Fire, #1)
I started this the day before the readathon because it was the Fairyloot readalong book. I got the most gorgeous copy from Fairyloot and, after so many reviews, I was eager to get to it. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to the hype. On the other hand, it was a solid four start fantasy book with a female/female relationship. Definitely a book I would recommend and I want to read the sequel, but the ending disappointed me a little.

  • Read a sequel

This is a sequel to Furthermore. I own a copy of this book and I’ve been wanting to start it for a while. I’m liking it so far, though I haven’t finished it yet. Alice and Oliver, from Furthermore, have already shown up and the style of writing is drawing me in.

  • Read a diverse fantasy

The Tiger's Daughter (Their Bright Ascendency, #1)
This book I am still reading for Tome Topple, but I am really enjoying it so far. The Tiger’s Daughter is a slow burn fantasy novel, with two women joined by fate and friendship. It has a slightly peculiar format but I’m adoring the world-building.

  • Read a book with multiple POVs

The Ballad of Black Tom
I bought this book a couple of months ago and I didn’t manage to get around to it, despite how short it was, but when I started it, I sped through it. I really don’t want to talk too much about the plot, for fear of spoiling it, but I will say this is a horror book, both from real life and from the supernatural.

  • Read an LGBTQ+ book

Girls of Paper and Fire (Girls of Paper and Fire, #1)
To be fair, this category could be filled with The Tiger’s Daughter as well, but this book I actually finished.

  • Read a book that has been on my TBR for a while

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)
This is an ARC I’ve been meaning to get through for a while. So far it is not impressing me. I’m not a fan of the romance and the style of writing is dragging. If it wasn’t an ARC, I would have DNFed it.

  • Read a new series

Girls of Paper and Fire (Girls of Paper and Fire, #1)

  • Read a Booktube recommended book

The Tiger's Daughter (Their Bright Ascendency, #1)
Sam from Thoughts on Tomes keeps recommending this book and I’ve had an ARC for ages. I’m halfway through and I’m really liking it so far.


Did anyone else take part in this readathon? How did you do?
