This isn’t in my usual posting schedule but I wanted to give everyone a chance to take part if they wanted to (but it starts 2 hours after I have finsihed this). This readathon is hosted by
and you can follow @medevialathon on Twitter if you want to get involved. Holly has uploaded some lovely graphics to go with her prompts.
This is my first readathon and I have got books for 16 of the 18 prompts, I am hoping to read them all but if not I want to read at least half of them.
A book that has yellowed over time
I knew my version of Harry Potter had yellowed with time so this was instantly on my list. I then worked out that this book is 17 years old, so it certainly deserves to be yellowed.
A Pristine Book
This book has been read, but I do enjoy my books to not look like they have been read. This means you can look at my book case and either instantly tell the books that I really love, or spot the ones my other half has borrowed as he doesn’t have the same feeling on this.
A Shiny Cover
My longer term viewers maybe glad that this one is here. I was on a roll and only had 2 books of the series left and the prequel and they got pushed aside for something else! Well I am hoping to at least get this one finished this month!
A Book with Your Favourite Colour on the Spine
Purple is currently my favourite colour (long term it just seems silly to settle on a favourite colour forever…I just can’t commit), a lovely re-read as well
A book under 300 Pages
I did consider one of the Percy Jackson novels for this but instead I went for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Luckily it squeezed in as I would have felt silly reading the first and third and completely ignoring this one.
A book with Green on the Cover
This is a book which I was bought for my birthday last year by my other half. So it made the list as I have been feeling a little guilty that I have not even read the blurb! My version has the first four books in one book… my question is now do I just read the first one given the number of books I am already reading… you will just have to wait and see.
A Dragon on the Cover
I thought I would take the opportunity to get another book that had been loitering on my TBR list read…I will just need to finish the series at some point!
Something Sharp on the Cover
Longer term readers will know I have been slowly making my way through the Mortal Instruments series and I couldn’t resist adding this in for my something sharp. I am aware that this version doesn’t have a weapon on iit but I promise the version on my bookcase does!
Start or Finish a Duology
This one had me digging through the depths of my TBR as it seems I either read stand alone books or series. Eventually I spotted Six of Crows, I only hope I really enjoy it so it encourages me to read more Duologies.
When I saw this I almost kicked myself having recently finished the Lunar Chronicles, but then I remembered that I wanted to read A Princess Bride, as the film is so lovely that I couldn’t help but want to read the book.
A Heavy Book
The last installment of the Throne of Glass series.. A whopping 980 pages, I don’t know if i should start with this book to get my biggest read out of the way or attempt it mid month having read a couple of shorter books.
A Book With High Expectations
This is a book my one of my close friends bought me for christmas and it has been languishing on my bookcase, both my friend and other half highly recommend this book so I have high expectations for it.
A book which is on a high shelf
The second book in the Inheritance Cycle hopefully to kick me into gear and finish the series
A book title beginning with C
The fifth installment of the Mortal Instruments series… if you have been paying attention you will have noticed I am aiming to finish the series this month.
A Tall Hardcover
The Tyrants Tomb, yet another one that I have said multiple times that I am going to read it… guess what…I am going to read it!
Orange on the Cover
As I had Skullduggery Pleasant Playing with Fire as my pristine book so I had a look and noticed some orange on this cover.
For me to read all of these I need to read about 200 pages per day which with working 8 hours a day maybe tricky. Luckily there are 2 bank holidays in the UK in May and I have the first off to get a head start. I may also sneak a Buddy read in if I can find a friend to do it with.
I am also canvasing on Twitter about if you want to see a separate Series Wrap up for my recently completed Series. So if you haven’t had your say yet it is running until Saturday when I usually post so please feedback. If you don’t know my twitter username is @Indulgentreade1.
