It is time yet again for one of my favorite read-a-thons! I don’t normally participate in many read-a-thons because I find it difficult to stick to a set reading list. However, I am so far behind on reading ARC’s and other books that I really want to get to that I feel like I need the structure of a read-a-thon to push through them and meet my goals. Enter the Medieval-a-thon hosted by Holly Hearts Books on Youtube! You can watch the announcement video here.
Dates: May 1 – May 31
Host: Holly Hearts Books
Theme: Medieval, Fantasy (however any genre of book may be read for the prompts)
- Read as many or as few books as you like.
- Rank up as you read more books.
- Pick a class/profession for prompts to follow.
- Read prompts in order from Level 1 through Level 5.
- If you finish one profession, you can choose another profession for a companion character.
- HAVE FUN!!
Resources & Links:
I decided to be extra this year and create a character for Medieval-a-thon. I used a free character creator on Picrew. I decided to go with the Clergy profession for my main character, hence the halo. I still need to come up with a name, though.
I chose the Clergy profession because most of the prompts matched books I have ARC’s for that I really need to read. There is at least one book on the list that is just a book I’ve been meaning to read, but the emphasis is on ARC’s.
- Comeuppance Served Cold by Marion Deeds
- The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith
- The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne
- Zachary Ying and the Dragon Emperor by Xiran Jay Zhao
- Kundo Wakes Up by Saad Hossain
My Companion’s Profession:
If I finish all of my main profession’s book prompts, then I plan to continue moving up the ranks by created a companion character. I decided on Tailor/Seamstress for my companion’s profession. After all, if I’m going for the Empress rank, I’m going to have to look good right?
- The Stardust Thief by Chelsea Abdullah
- The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton
- Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May
- The Hunger of the Gods by John Gwynne
- Under Fortunate Stars by Ren Hutchings
If all goes well, I plan to achieve the character rank of Empress during Medieval-a-thon. I did manage that the last time I participated a few years ago, so I think it’s possible. It helps that there aren’t any major video games coming out in May to distract me from reading!
