Hello everyone! I hope you’re all feeling well. I’m still shocked by the fact, that it started snowing on Thursday here in Luxembourg. I mean a few days back we still had 20 °C and now it’s already snowing? Where the hell is autumn? It’s my favourite season of the year and it didn’t even make an appearance this year. I’m kind of sad because of this but hey, maybe winter will be less long as it’s already showing its first signs. (A girl can dream! 😉 )
Without further ado, let’s start with the TBR and I know I’m kind of crazy for doing this. I have a lot of midterms this month but hey I can’t help it I love reading!
So this readathon has been created by Foxes and Fairytales and you can find all the information you need (in case you want to participate) in this post. This readathon is all month long and the prompts are really interesting! I’m really excited to show you the books I plan to read this month for the #mythothon. But as a warning: I may not be able to read all the books as my studies are my full priority right now due to the midterms. I will, however, do my best to read as much as possible and to have some fun next to the high-stress level.
#1 – Zeus. King of the Gods. God of the Sky. Read a book at least 400 pages long.
#2 – Hera. Queen of the Gods. Goddess of Marriage, Mothers and Families. Read a book about royalty.
#3 – Hebe. Goddess of Eternal Youth. Read a Middle Grade or Young Adult book.
#4 – Poseidon. God of the Sea. Read a book which features the sea – mermaids, pirates, surfers etc.
#5 – Hermes. God of Travellers and Thieves. Read a book set in a country not your own.
Ha! That’s an easy one!
#6 – Aphrodite. Goddess of Love and Beauty. Read a book with a beautiful cover.
#7 – The Hydra. Multiheaded Serpent. Read a book with more than one POV.
I decided to restart Furyborn by Claire Legrand as I did have my troubles with it in the beginning. So this is the book I’d choose for this challenge!
#8 – Iris. Goddess of the Rainbow. Read a book with your favourite colour on the cover or in the title.
#9 – Ancient Greece. Read a book set in the past.
#10 – Hestia. Goddess of the Hearth. Read the first book in a series.
#11 – Dionysus. God of Wine. Celebrate this year by reading a 2018 release.
I may switch it with an e-ARC I have to read for this month so I’m not sure yet. Maybe I’ll manage to read both. Then, of course, it would stay State of Sorrow!
#12 – Achilles and Patroclus. Read a book with an LGBT+ protagonist.
#13 – Free Choice.
This will probably be my e-arc I have to read for this month. So Ricochet by David A. Kennedy.
#14 – Homer. Read a retelling (of a myth, fairy tale, classic novel etc.)
#15 – Hephaestus. God of Fire and Smiths. Read a book with a disabled character.
According to Goodreads, The Perks of being a Wallflower is about a disabled character. I’m not sure as I don’t find any more information about it. But for now, I list it in this section. Please let me know if it is indeed about a disabled character.
#16 – Ares. God of War. Read a book with a compelling antagonist or a written from the villain’s POV.
#17 – Echidna. Mother of Monsters. Read a book about monsters – dragons, zombies, serial killers etc.
#18 – Herakles. Read a popular book (define ‘popular’ as you wish).
#19 – Gaia. Primordial Earth Goddess. Read a book which was published at least 5 years ago.
#20 – Artemis. Goddess of the Moon and the Hunt. Read a book with an animal on the cover or in the title.
#21 – Athena. Goddess of Wisdom, Strategy and Crafts. Read a book that’s not the first in the series.
#22 – Persephone. Goddess of the Underworld and Springtime. Read a book which is less than 200 pages.
#23 – Apollo. God of Prophesy, Plague and Poetry. Read a collection of poetry or short stories.
#24 – Hades. God of the Underworld and Riches. Read a book which you got for free (library, from a friend, ARC, Kindle offer etc.)
#25 – Demeter. Goddess of Agriculture. Read a book with a nature word in the title – e.g. leaf, wind, flower etc.
And that’s all for the TBR. I don’t know how many squares of the BINGO chart I’m going to complete but reading is only for fun, it shouldn’t become an obligation ! So if I manage to read some of these books that’s still great.
