Me? Participating in another read-a-thon? More likely than you think.
The Olympic Games is a Percy Jackson themed read-a-thon that will take place throughout the month of June, you can find the announcement video here.
I’ve starting to participate more, I started with the Magical Read-a-thon on March, Sea-May-den-athon in May, and this month I’m participating in Galleyathon and the Olympic Games! So in case you don’t know, I haven’t read Percy Jackson and the Olympians series yet. I read the first book in May, but I’m still waiting to receive my boxed set so I can continue with the journey.
Since I still don’t know much about the gods to say which cabin I prefer the most, I decided to do the quiz on which god do I descend from and got Poseidon. So let’s take a look at the prompts and the books I’ve selected for them!
A book set at sea or on the coast
Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.
I recently got this book from a kind soul from Twitter 💕 and now I’m glad to be able to tackle it!
A book in which a main character used a sword
It has been four months since a mysterious obsidian stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Prince Rhy was wounded, and since the nefarious Dane twins of White London fell, and four months since the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift–back into Black London.
I am finally diving back to see what Kell and Lila will confront on this sequel. I’ve had the book for so long the pages are not the brand new tone they were when I bought it. I know Lila uses a sword, but I’m not sure if other characters that are introduced will also do it.
A book with a non-human main character
Celine Rousseau arrives in New Orleans in 1872. Looking to leave her dark past behind in Paris, she travels to America and tries to reinvent herself by joining the Ursuline convent. However, the city of New Orleans is nothing like she imagined and there’s a serial killer on the loose.
I recently got a sneak peek from Netgalley from this book and it looks amazing! It was recently on sale for Kindle so I snatched it before the price went back up. Vampires, I can’t wait to see them here.
Finish a book in 3 days
It’s not everyday you find yourself in combat with a half-lion, half-human.
But when you’re the son of a Greek god, it happens. And now my friend Annabeth is missing, a goddess is in chains and only five half-blood heroes can join the quest to defeat the doomsday monster.
So excited to continue Percy’s adventure with the third book on the series! I started the second book on May and at the time of writing this post it’s still on my currently reading list on Goodreads. But I’ll get here!
A book you have not hear much about before
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other.
This is a book that I bought merely on a friend’s suggestion and a small synopsis she gave me. So I don’t know much about this book and it been sitting on my shelf for quite waiting for me to pick up my ass and finally read it.
I am definitely not doing any Advanced Challenges because I don’t even know if I will be able to finish all the main prompts. Especially because I’m participating in another readathon. Still, hope I have as much fun during this read-a-thon as I’ve had with the ones before!
