Medieval-a-thon 2022 & May TBR

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.

Read-a-thon Information:

Dates: May 1 – May 31

Host: Holly Hearts Books

My Character:

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.

My Profession:

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.

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?

Character Ranking:

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!
