Femme FanTale Readathon | TBR

The Femme FanTale Readathon is taking place from 2-10 March and was created by Jean @ Bookish Thoughts and Jill @ The Book Neuk. The core idea behind the readathon is simple: read fantasy written by women!

Since I read a lot of YA fantasy anyway, and a lot of those authors tend to be female, it seemed ridiculous not to be participate in this celebration of female fantasy! There is a readathon challenge/prompt board to help shape your TBR (and Jean has been posting some incredible recommendations for each challenge on her Twitter in the run up to this readathon) but you can double-up on challenges I think. There’s no way I’ll read 12 books during the readathon but, hey, it helps to have choices, right?

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
Challenges fulfilled: queer, inspired by myth (George and the Dragon), standalone, adult

Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
Challenges fulfilled: queer (?), historical fantasy, adult

Throne of Jade (Temeraire #2) by Naomi Novik (audiobook)
Challenges fulfilled: historical fantasy, adult

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho (audiobook)
Challenges fulfilled: BAME author, historical fantasy, adult

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
Challenges fulfilled: YA, BAME author, fairytale retelling

As you can tell, that’s quite enough books to be getting along with, and there’s no way I’m going to finish all of them (or, likely, even the majority of them) but God loves a trier, right?

If you’re taking part in the readathon, let me know on Twitter, as I’ll probably be hanging out there and on the hashtag for most of this upcoming week.

    Wonderful TBR, I just started Samantha Shannons new book. I am only about 15 pages in and so far so good!
