So here’s my TBR to match the challenges!
The first book in a series:
Heart of Mist, by Helen Scheuerer. I’m reading this e-ARC anyway so I may as well add it. It’s a LoveOzYA fantasy debut, so far it’s intriguing and it’s surprised me and I’m really enjoying it!
A book set in a different world:
Blackwing, by Ed McDonald. The synopsis starts off with this: “Set on the ragged edge of a postapocalyptic frontier, Blackwing is a gritty fantasy debut about a man’s desperate battle to survive his own dark destiny…” So basically, FANTASY, MY JAM. I have no idea whether I’ll get to this one, but it’s definitely on my radar! It came out July 27, so it’s pretty dang spankin’ new.
A book based on mythology:
Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor, by Rick Riordan. I’m behind on Riordan and he keeps releasing books, HALP. His books are usually fast-paced and PACKED with mythology, so definitely ticked this box.
A book that contains magic:
Daughter of the Burning City, by Amanda Foody. A blind girl creating illusions, then one of them is murdered? Plus it’s a fantasy book? This fits the prompt to a tee. Plus it’s sitting on my TBR pile of books to review so HANDY!
A book with a one word title:
Skitter, by Ezekiel Boone. I’ve been dragging my knuckles reading book 1, The Hatching. So hoping I get through book 1 and make a little dent in Skitter! These books have been a weight on my TBR conscience, I really need to finish & review them: spiders, apocalypse, hoping they hook me sooooon.
Potions – a book concocted by 2+ authors:
Take Three Girls, by Cath Crowley, Simmone Howell & Fiona Wood. A YA feminist contemporary that interrogates cyber-bullying. Yaaas. I’m on the blog tour, so review will be up on Sep 11.
I definitely have my work cut out for me. Especially when it comes to calculating my experience and health points at the end of the readathon, haha! 😀
I’m just doing this to conquer some of my unread books, but there are also prizes. You can find out how to add up points & participate here! I also may have some overhang into this TBR list from #TomeTopple, plus I’m reading Godsgrave too, sooo… SO MANY BOOKS!
If you’re joining in feel free to link your posts in the comments so I can see what you’re reading! If not, let me know what you plan to pick up in August?
Until next time! ❤
