Witchathon 2019 TBR Announcement

For those of you who have been following, you might know that I participated in my very first readathons last month when I entered in House Battles and Mythothon.

I admit that I went a little overboard and read like a madwoman because I became obsessed with the idea of reading at least 300 pages per day. Almost any free time I had outside of work was dedicated to trying to read as much as possible. As a result, I read a whopping 26 books and also destroyed basically any reading motivation I had.

I decided that–if I want to stay sane and keep my love of reading–I should probably take a break from readathons, especially the ones that give you points per page. While looking for “low-cost” readathons in October, I found Witchathon and it was basically exactly what I (and my partner) needed. It’s only a week long, has no point system, and has super cool prompts.

Here are the reading prompts for Witchathon:

  • A book that features your heritage
  • A book that features communing with the dead
  • A book that promises to be dark & twisted.
  • A book that involves a pantheon of deities
  • A book that has fire on the cover
  • The group pick: Gideon the Ninth

Ready for my TBR?

The books I’m reading are:

  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan (fire on the cover/pantheon of deities)
  • Gideon the Ninth (group book/communing with the dead)
  • The Whisper Man by Alex North (dark and twisted)
  • Binti by Nnedi Okorafor (heritage)

  1. Gideon the ninth and The Whisperman are on my TBR as well, but I’m a little in doubt about that last one since I’m a bit tired of thrillers lately.
