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)
