NEW MONTH, NEW READATHON!

I have 3 more weeks of university before I’m done for the year so I decided that it’s finally time to get back to reading once again. Out of all the books I have chosen, I will probably read most of the ebooks rather than my physical books. Being realistic is sometimes a sad thing.

As someone who loves Greek mythology, I just had to participate in this readathon!

ZEUS

(King of the Gods, God of the Sky)

Read a book at least 400 pages long:
City of Bones - Cassandra Clare

After buying the 10th Anniversary edition, I had been dying to reread the book. The book is a beauty.

HERA

(Queen of the Gods, Goddess of Marriage, Mothers and Families)

Read a book about royalty:
To Kill a Kingdom - Alexandra Christo

I have no idea what this is about but I loved the book cover.

HEBE

(Goddess of Eternal Youth)

Read a MG or YA book:
The Last Olympian - Rick Riordan

This is the last book in the Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian series, and I know I will miss the cast. However, I’m really excited what the other series will be about and how Rick Riordan will expand this world with other main characters.

POSEIDON

(God of the Sea)

Read a book which features the sea:
Daughter of the Pirate King - Tricia Levenseller

Zero idea of what the storyline is for Daughter of the Pirate King but I’m really excited for whatever it may be bring.

HERMES

(God of Travellers and Thieves)

Read a book set in a country not your own:
The Fortunate Ones - R. S. Grey

Loved R. S. Grey’s books so here’s one more for this readathon. And I don’t know any books other than Crazy Rich Asians that sets in my country, to be honest.

APHRODITE

(Goddess of Love and Beauty)

Read a book with a beautiful cover:
Bad Penny - Staci Hart

The tattoo on Penny’s body is beautiful. I’m not a big fan of full tattoo but hers are simply stunning.

THE HYDRA

(Multi-headed Serpent)

Read a book with more than one POV:
Shopping for a CEO's Wife - Julia Kent

Catching up with all of Julia Kent’s books in this series but it seems like she is consistently publishing books.

IRIS

(Goddess of the Rainbow)

Read a book with your favourite color on the cover 
or in the title:
Learn About Loss - Cassandra Clare

I’m enjoying all of the Ghost of Shadow Market short stories. I can’t wait to get the physical copy!!!! The colors in this cover are beautiful.

ANCIENT GREECE

Read a book set in the past:
Hunting Prince Dracula - Kerri Maniscalco

I loved Stalking Jack the Ripper and I need to get Escaping from Houdini soon.

HESTIA

(Goddess of the Hearth)

Read the first book in a series:
Under the Never Sky - Veronica Rossi

*sheepish grin*

DIONYSUS

(God of Wine)

Celebrate this year by reading a 2018 release:
Once Upon a Wild Fling - Lauren Blakely

This was published on the day of my birthday so why not????!!

ACHILLES & PATROCLUS

Read a book with an LGBT+ protagonist:
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue - Mackenzi Lee

Been wanting to read this book but never got to. I didn’t get to read much diverse reads this year (or any year for that matter) but I’m going to make use of this readathon prompt.

FREE CHOICE

Goddess of Love - P. C. Cast

Trying to finish the entire series of the Goddess Summoning as quickly as I can because P. C. Cast is keeping me hooked with the characters and plots. I don’t know how she does it but every time, the story is unique to itself. It’s nothing like the previous books.

HOMER

Read a retelling:
Goddess of Spring - P. C. Cast

Another P. C. Cast story.

HEPHAESTUS 

(God of Fire and Smiths)

Read a book with a disabled character:
The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr - Frances Maynard

I’ve actually read about a hundred pages but I stopped because I got really busy. I’m anxious to know what is going on but I’m taking so long to read this contemporary. No idea why I feel this way.

ARES

(God of War)

Read a book with a compelling antagonist or
written from the villain's POV:
And I Darken - Kiersten White

I’m not sure about this prompt. Please let me know if I’m putting a wrong book in under this!

ECHIDNA

(Mother of Monsters)

Read a book about monsters:
The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and 
Dangerous Magic - Leigh Bardugo

Bought this and it has been sitting on a side table. It will be a shame if I don’t read it in this time of the year.

HERAKLES

Read a popular book:
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - Taylor Jenkins Reid

Everyone was raving about this book when it was first published. I always wondered what attracted readers so I’m excited to find it out myself.

GAIA

(Primordial Earth Goddess)

Read a book which was published at least 5 years ago:
Goddess of Light - P. C. Cast

Another Goddess Summoning book!

ARTEMIS

(Goddess of the Moon and the Hunt)

Read a book with an animal on the cover or in the title:
The Burning Sky - Sherry Thomas

Have always wanted to read it (and it’s always in my tbr for readathons), will I read this book this time? Can’t promise.

ATHENA

(Goddess of Wisdom, Strategy and Crafts)

Read a book that's not the first in the series:
Through the Ever Night - Veronica Rossi

PLEASE… LET.. ME.. READ.. IT.. THIS.. TIME…….

PERSEPHONE

(Goddess of the Underworld and Springtime)

Read a book less than 200 pages:
Every Exquisite Thing - Cassandra Clare

JUST WANT TO HAVE THE ENTIRE COLLECTION.

APOLLO

(God of Prophecy, Plague and Poetry)

Read a collection of poetry or short stories:
Milk and Honey - Rupi Kaur

Never thought that I would add a poetry book in a readathon (I don’t read them much) but I wanted a change.

HADES

(God of the Underworld and Riches)

Read a book which you got for free:
Ten Thousand Skies Above You - Claudia Gray

With the too-sweet ending from the previous book, I don’t know what to expect in the second one in the series.

DEMETER

(Goddess of Agriculture)

Read a book with a nature word in the title:
Of Fire and Stars - Audrey Coulthurst

Added this into my Year-Long reading challenge because the synopsis was intriguing. Since I only have two months left to read the book, I’ll probably be picking up this sooner than later.
