Because Dragons Readathon

Can I do another readathon at the same time as TimeHopAThon? Maybe not, but I’m going to try anyway! It’s a fantasy themed readathon (intro post here) and it runs from tomorrow (20th February) to the 26th February.

Challenges:
1. Read a diverse fantasy book. (could be #ownvoices, could be a POC author, could be a diverse cast of characters, or set in a part of the (real) world you are not familiar with)
2. Read a fantasy book with a steamy romance.
3. Read a fantasy book with purple on the cover. (any amount is sufficient)
4. Read the next fantasy book in a series. (continue a series or start a new one)
5. Read a fantasy book with dragons in it. Because, duh.

Imitation

Imitation (Clone Chronicles #1)Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face.

Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.

When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?

Top Ten Books Where The Romance Could Be Improved

So I think I am finally getting the hang of this Top Ten Tuesday thing from Broke and Bookish. Apart from how I continually forget to post on a Tuesday and forget to link back to the blog!

So, in honour of Valentine’s Day, this is my top ten books which could have been improved if the romance was non-existent, better, more diverse etc.

It is posts like these where I’m glad I started entering all the books I’ve read on Goodreads. Makes it so much easier.

Carry On

Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here – it’s their last year at Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Carry On is a love letter to love stories and the power of words – to every ‘chosen one’ who ever had more on their mind than saving the world…
