O.W.Ls Readathon Wrap Up

This is an amazingly detailed readathon based around Harry Potter, more specifically, the fifth year exams. There was also a booklet of careers where you could see which exams (reading prompts) you would have to do to get your dream career. And of course, I decided to go for the hardest career and see how it would turn out.

My TBR is here. I went for Alchemist and I actually managed to succeed in reading enough books to fit the prompts.

Ramadan Readathon

Ramadan Readathon 2019

I wasn’t going to do this readathon originally since I discovered month long readathons and me don’t mix, but then I saw some great recommendations for me to check out and decided to sign up very last minute.

This readathon runs for the month of Ramadan, so 6th May to 4th June and it’s focus is on Muslim authors. The announcement post is here, the Twitter is here and the Instagram is here.

Ramadan Readathon Bingo

The challenges are based on the five pillars of Islam and you start at the bottom and work your way up. I’ll be focusing on the Faith/Shahadah pillar (recommendations here).

The Queens of Innis Lear

The Queens of Innis LearThe erratic decisions of a prophecy-obsessed king have drained Innis Lear of its wild magic, leaving behind a trail of barren crops and despondent subjects. Enemy nations circle the once-bountiful isle, sensing its growing vulnerability, hungry to control the ideal port for all trade routes.

The king’s three daughters—battle-hungry Gaela, master manipulator Reagan, and restrained, starblessed Elia—know the realm’s only chance of resurrection is to crown a new sovereign, proving a strong hand can resurrect magic and defend itself. But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted.

Refusing to leave their future in the hands of blind faith, the daughters of Innis Lear prepare for war—but regardless of who wins the crown, the shores of Innis will weep the blood of a house divided.

Tome Topple Wrap Up

Tome Topple Readathon

Look at me in my TBR, being all optimistic about how I was going to do on this readathon. Did that happen? Not so much. However, I did get around to one tome in particular which has been on my TBR for ages so I’m glad about that. My TBR crashed and burned but two of these books have been on my TBR for ages and I’m glad to knock them off (plus they were both really good).

Actually all the books for this readathon turned out to be books I enjoyed when it came down to it, though some took a little longer than others.
