Soooo I found out yesterday about a fantastic, epic readathon called "The Book Junkie Trials" hosted by Rachel Marie. The idea is pretty simple: you are sorted into a team and then follow a map quest completing prompts to move to the next 'location'. The idea is lovely and I can't wait until next week to fully start!! Head over here to learn about the readathon. They have a drive folder featuring all the maps and the reading tracker you have to use to log in your finished reads. It's is a very organised event and I'm excited to participate in it!!
I'm proud team #scribe, a team led by Sophiesticated Books, Duchess of Scribes.
Who are the scribes you might ask?
Scribes are professional chroniclers who write accounts of important or historical events. They follow where the action is. However, they have been known to give rather conflicting accounts of battles, depending upon which side they favour.
ABILITY: The ability to rewrite their tale. Their unique ability is to read a book that wasn’t on their declared TBR.
WEAKNESS As scribes spend so much time documenting their findings, one of their challenges will take MUCH longer than normal. Read a book over 500 pages.
Now the path I am destined to follow is
1. Dwarf Mount: You spot a fair tavern wench, however the Dwarf Mines, grimey and dusty, didn’t evoke a very romantic feeling.
Read a book with a hint of romance to get you in the mood.
2. Apothecary Towers: Where the wizards dwell. Tricksters. They have blind-folded you and randomised all your books.
Choose a book at random from your bookshelf.
3. The Great Library: Ahh the great archives
Find and read a book that has been on your TBR forever.
4. The Drowning Deep: The Whirlpool… is so…. mesmerising.
Read a book with rich world-building that will suck you into its own world, instead.
5. The Bookie Grail: Here you find a lost manuscript, delivered on this forgotten island by a fallen star.
Read the group book: Stardust
My chosen TBR pile is
✎ Dwarf Mount: I had to have a Snyder book in my list. And what better choice than my shiny new book of hers? Sidenote: it's 500+ pages.
✎ Apothecary Towers: I looked over at my archives and let calibre pick up a random book, from my recent purchases though. I am so hyped for that one!!
✎ The Great Library: I've had Vicious for a while and I think it's time.
✎The Drowning Deep: I don't know if I will end up sticking to this one, but I have lots of friends who are raving about this so why not?
✎ Bookish Grail: This is the final stop. I have read Stardust in the past, and I wasn't a huge fan but oh well..
P.S: I will be using instagram to track the readathon as well. Feel free to pop there as well!
