Because Dragons RAT Round 5

Fantasy Readathon: #becausedragonsRAT

There was a clash of readathons at the start of July and since I’m going to try and reduce the number of readathons I do in July, thanks to Camp Nanowrimo, I’ve decided to only go with one readathon. Because Dragons is a readathon based around fantasy and dragons, so really suits me down to the ground. The other readathon was Read-eh-thon which is a Canada-themed readathon (video here) and I was very tempted by it.

This runs from the 1st July to the 7th July and the Instagram post for this is here.

Challenges

  • Read a fantasy with red on the cover
  • Read a fantasy based on mythology you are unfamiliar with
  • Read a fantasy with a strong friendship
  • Read the last fantasy book you acquired
  • Read a fantasy with dragons

Readathon Wrap Ups

Now I was very short-sighted and signed up to do three readathons in the same week. I am terrible with dates and didn’t realise they all overlapped until I signed up for them. I have decided to do one wrap up for all three, partly because I really can’t be bothered to do three separate wrap ups when I could be reading and partly because there is some overlap. I read ten books last week, so not everything on my TBR but since my TBR was ridiculous, I’m okay with the books I did manage to read. Most of the links to the books link to my review of that book on Goodreads.

The three readathons I did last week were Read-O-Rama ReadathonLibrary-a-thon and Because Dragons Readathon.
