It has been too long since I took part in the readathon but when I saw there was a readathon based on one of my favourite TV shows Merlin happening I just had to join in! This readathon gives you challenges to chose from abs three possible starting points. The aim is to complete a path.
Because this readathon is two weeks long and you only need to read four books to complete it, I’m going to double the challenge and try and complete two paths.
Firstly I’ll read a scary book to vanquish my fears and banish Uther’s ghost. For this I’ll read Shutter Island which I’ve been wanting to read for ages. After this I think I’ll finally watch the movie!
To find a cure for the plague (quickly) I need to read a short book under 250 pages and I have the perfect book for this. Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. It’s a short book set in one day and is her most famous stream of conciousness piece.
Gwen has been kidnapped! To save her I need to pay the ransom and read a book with a gold foil cover. For this I want to reread The Great Gatsby which I have a beautiful edition of with lots of gold foil on the front.
Finally, I need to read a book with a green cover to protect myself from a potent goblin. I am finally, finally going to be reading Anne of Green Gables for this one! I can’t wait!
To complete a second path I need to next read a five star prediction to claim the sword in the stone. Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid will work perfectly for this. I have high hopes!
Gawain is in trouble at the tavern… again. But because I’m such a good friend I’m going to help him out and read a book about friendship. What better book could there be for this challenge than My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante.
Merlin has been poisoned and needs a cure. For this, we’re going to need to go on a quest, and no quest is complete without a map, and I need to read a book that has one!
Now, I’m not normally one for fighting. But some ass of a prince has challenged me to my first one and to survive it I need to read an authors debut. For this I’ll read the first and only book Zelda Fitzgerald wrote, Save Me the Waltz.
Good luck to everybody who’s participating!
