Hi lovely readers! Today I’m writing my TBR for the Make Your Myth-Taker Readathon. I had absolutely no plans to join this readathon or any idea what it was about until I saw a post about it on Geeky Galaxy and it grabbed my attention. I saw it and just couldn’t resist finding out if I could join AND read the Throne of Glass books too. It’s a little ambitious for me but I’m going to give it a shot!
The readathon is aimed around mythical creatures, and has prompts to follow in order to ‘become’ that creature. The announcement video below tells you much more about it!
I went for Goddess! This was mainly due to the prompts that fit what I want to read in June, but it’s also partly due to being drawn to the Sorceror characters in general, they are all so beautiful.
It’s time to introduce you guys to the books I chose for the readathon!
As soon as I saw this prompt I knew I could include at least one Throne of Glass book in here which will help me out as I am already buddy reading the series with Alex! Although I’m not sure where exactly Fae come up in the series, I know they are in the world in general so I think that counts.
A book with a foiled cover
Lo-Melkhiin killed three hundred girls before he came to my village, looking for a wife. When Lo-Melkhiin – a formidable king – arrives at her desert home, she knows that he will take her beautiful sister for a wife. Desperate to save her sister from certain death, she makes the ultimate sacrifice – leaving home and family behind to live with a fearful man. But it seems that a strange magic flows between her and Lo-Melkhiin, and night after night, she survives. Finding power in storytelling, the words she speaks are given strange life of their own. Little things, at first: a dress from home, a vision of her sister. But she dreams of bigger, more terrible magic: power enough to save a king …if only she can stop her heart from falling for a monster.
It was really hard to find a book with a foil cover I actually think I will be able to squeeze in! I eventually chose this as my cover has a foiled feather on it.
Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least make it out of her neighborhood one day. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died before he hit big, Bri’s got big shoes to fill. But now that her mom has unexpectedly lost her job, food banks and shutoff notices are as much a part of Bri’s life as beats and rhymes. With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it—she has to make it.
I did cheat a little and went for the standalone with the highest rating as a lot were not the start of a series! However, I’m really excited for this one.
Randomise your TBR
Rosa Santos is cursed by the sea-at least, that’s what they say. Dating her is bad news, especially if you’re a boy with a boat.
But Rosa feels more caught than cursed. Caught between cultures and choices. Between her abuela, a beloved healer and pillar of their community, and her mother, an artist who crashes in and out of her life like a hurricane. Between Port Coral, the quirky South Florida town they call home, and Cuba, the island her abuela refuses to talk about.
As her college decision looms, Rosa collides – literally – with Alex Aquino, the mysterious boy with tattoos of the ocean whose family owns the marina. With her heart, her family, and her future on the line, can Rosa break a curse and find her place beyond the horizon?
I was lucky the randomised one came out with a standalone too, and a fairly short read I think I should be able to fit in to my busy reading month!
I’m so excited for this readathon especially now I have chosen my books! Are you going to join in and if so, which character are you pursuing?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
