I am here today for something kind of new. I haven’t shared a TBR in a really long time and I haven’t participated in a readathon in even longer than that. But when this particular one popped up on my Twitter feed, I could not help myself and knew I had to be a part of it!
The Olympic Games Readathon is hosted by booktuber Ishi Time along with some other cohosts. It is based on the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan and readers get to experience life as a camper! Check out the YouTube video link for more information if you’d like to join in on the fun. I will also share the Twitter and Instagram!
SO let’s get started!
First, I want to share with you all the letter the campers get for this readathon!
So after taking a quiz to find out my godly parent, which you can also take here, I found out I am a daughter of Poseidon! I never doubted it considering my insane obsession with the ocean, ocean animals and all things mermaids, but it was really nice to have confirmation. The following is my specific challenges for the readathon based on my godly parent and the advance challenges I can be a part of!
I’m going to outline the prompts one by one below but I just want to say how amazingly well done I think this readathon is so far. There are twelve full teams of different main gods and goddesses that you can join and each one has 5 specific prompts of their own. I love the letter at the top as well as the the design of everything they’ve put out for the planning stages. It’s honestly one of my favorite parts of being involved with readathons, seeing the marketing and how they structure it.
Now, onto my actual TBR!
I am mostly going to be picking books that I have on hold for my library or that I have on hand with me right now since I am away from my bookshelves at the moment. This is just to the best of my abilities so bear with me ya’ll haha.
- Book set at sea or on the coast – Seafire by Natalie C. Parker: I’ll need to pick this one up from my shelves soon but I have been wanting to read it for awhile and it’s the only one I could think of without “double dipping” haha.
- Book in which a main character uses a sword – The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan: I’ve had this on my TBR for awhile and it’s been on hold with my library for a few weeks. I believe it’s gonna arrive into my hands just in time to read it for this readathon!
- Book with a non-human main character – The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova: This book has been on my TBR for a really long time and it’s a shame I haven’t read it yet because it’s one of my favorite author’s debut so I gotta read it!
- Finish a book in three days – Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen: I’ve been on a big romance kick for the last few months because they’re simple and fast to read. This one is on hold for me in my library and I know for a fact that I can read it in three days, maybe even less!
- Book you have not heard much about before – The Wicker King by K. Ancrum: I decided the best thing to do for this challenge was just to ask my friend, my lovely boo boo, Fadwa @ Word Wonders for a rec with no contest and this is what she gave me!
- Pegasus Riding (Book published within the last 5 years) – The Case for Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro: I’ve been rereading this series in order to finish it so I’m gonna pop this book in here and do one advanced challenge to help my team out the best I can!
I’m super excited to get started with this readathon and to start reading all these books! On top of this, I’m in a buddy read with two friends and we’re going to tackle our ARCs of Lobizona by Romina Garber. That is also super exciting so overall, I think I’m going to have a great reading month!
So that’s it for this post! Let me know if you are participating in any readathons this month as I know there are several floating around and what you think of my TBR and my plans for this month. Sending you all so much love!
