So, I did something ill-advised… I decided to join in with (yet) another readathon. I went back and forth on whether I was taking part in this when I found out about it 1 day into the readathon itself. In fact, I sternly told myself ‘no, Emma, one readathon at a time, concentrate on OWLs’ but I’m nothing if not indecisive so I changed my mind when I saw friend and housemate Liz post her TBR to her blog. So I’m doing this readathon too now apparently.
The Avengers Readathon is hosted by Noura from The Perks of Being Noura and it is taking place from 14th April until 14th May. (For more details, especially on the challenges, be sure to check out Noura’s blog.) I’m a little bit late in posting up this TBR but, handily, the books I’ve read in the past week or so still count towards some of the prompts from this readathon anyway so I’m counting them.
As you may be able to tell from the readathon title, this is a readathon centred on the MCU. Since we’re eagerly (/worriedly) anticipating Avengers Endgame this readathon can be a nice distraction from the Thanos-filled terror for a little while at least. As my own journey with the MCU began back in 2011 with the first Thor film I decided it would be remiss of me to choose any other character’s assignments to follow other than the Asgardian himself (although Captain Marvel sure did tempt me!) so here’s my TBR for the readathon:
Norse Mythology: mythology book
A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes
Thor: Book with one word title
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
Thor & Loki: book with siblings
Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
(1 of Iron Man’s assignments) Tony’s Suit: book with a red cover
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
(1 of Doctor Strange’s assignments) Master Sorcerer: book with magic/symbols
Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho
If I somehow manage to finish all these books (which I hope I do because the majority also appear on my OWLs TBR!), I’ll move onto a different characters’ assignments. It would be fitting to continue onto Loki’s challenges (especially since he’s, unsurprisingly, my fave MCU character), but we’ll see how it goes…
Are you doing the Avengers Readathon? Which characters’ assignments have you chosen to follow? If you’re not taking part in the readathon, still let me know what you’re planning to read in the next few weeks because I’m curious/nosy!
