I’m hyped for this Readathon, created by Don’t Have a Degree in Reading
So I put together a TBR list for between April 29 – and May 12, 2018!!!
I won’t dwell on explaining the Readathon rules or challenges since this was already done so well by the booktubers involved. Take a look at the Readathon hosts links at the bottom of this post for more information.
I also found great book recommendation links on this Youtube video:
I confess that I’m in doubt whether I will manage to complete all those challenges with my daily life limited time and preparations for a trip to Brazil, and it could also happen that I change one of my TBR choices. There is nothing I like so much as jumping out of a planned TBR ;-). All considerations aside, here are my choices for each challenge:
1. Read a fantasy book written by a POC Author
Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas #1) by Zoraida Córdova
2. Read a fantasy book w/ a POC MC
The Golem and the Jinni (The Golem and the Jinni, #1) by Helene Wecker. I know, this one has been a benchwarmer for a long time, but I hope to be able to finally read it.
3. Read a fantasy book under 300 pages
Less than 300 pages is usually too short for me. I often get a feeling that the story was undevelopped and rushed, but The Price Guide to the Occult by Leslye Walton could be interesting.
4. Read a fantasy book 1,000+ pages
Since I already read all GOT series, I consider a challenge to find another fantasy book with 1000 pages that I would like to read at the moment. Perhaps I’ll read a series adding to 1000 pages instead?
Another idea would be to read The Wise Man’s Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle #2) by Patrick Rothfuss, but this will only happen if I have time to read the first book of this series and decide to go on with the series.
In any case, I’ll probably read 1000 pages during the Readathon.
5. Read a fantasy book that is a stand alone
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black is a stand alone as far as I know. And I’m planning to read more from this author since I liked The Cruel Prince.
6. Read a fantasy book written by a non-English speaking author
The Last Wish (Saga o Wiedźminie #1) by Andrzej Sapkowski, Danusia Stok (Translator). A lot of people seem to be crazy about The Witcher and there is even a game inspired on this series. So it’s time I check it out.
7. Read a fantasy book set in a non-European location
The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin. I heard the world is based on Egypt and the plot has something like ‘dream magic’. I also hear all the time about this author, so I’ll check one of her books..
8. Read a fantasy book w/ LGBTQIA+ rep
China Mountain Zhang by von Maureen F. McHugh. This is classic sci-fi that won a lot of prizes. It seems interesting.
