ACMC Readathon TBR!

I never do readathons (or TBRs for that matter), mostly because I find them stressful and I’m a mood reader, but this one is a whole month and most of the books I already want to read fit the categories! Also, it is hosted by one of my faves, Elliot Brooks, so I’m in. Check out her announcement video here!

The theme of the readathon is animal companions and mythological creatures, even if they aren’t a super prominent part of the plot. There are some different categories that serve as prompts:
– Type of animal/creature (land, sky, sea, beyond)
– Age range (adult, YA/middle grade)
– Area of inspiration (African, European, Asian, Indigenous, and South American)
– Representation (mental health, disability, and LGBTQ+)

These are all sorted onto “MAGIC” cards (Bingo, basically), so if you complete a row, you’ve completed the readathon. Here is the MAGIC card I am going for:

On to the books! I have three different tiers of books, based on priority to complete the readathon.

Highest Priority

Flamefall (The Aurelian Cycle #2) by Rosaria Munda
– YA
– LGBTQ+ rep
– sky

Assassin’s Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy #1) by Robin Hobb
– adult
– mental health rep
– European
– land

When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain (The Singing Hills Cycle #2) by Nghi Vo
– adult
– LGBTQ+ rep
– Asian
– land

Medium Priority

The Bitter Twins (The Winnowing Flame Trilogy #2) by Jen Williams
– adult
– LGBTQ+ rep
– sky

The Bone Shard Daughter (The Drowning Empire #1) by Andrea Stewart
– adult
– LGBTQ+ rep
– Asian

Lowest Priority

A Dowry of Blood by S.T. Gibson
– adult
– LGBTQ+ rep
– beyond

Fireborne (The Aurelian Cycle #1) by Rosaria Munda (reread)
– sky
– YA

Green Rider (Green Rider #1) by Kristen Britain (reread)
– adult
– land
– European

The Deep by Rivers Solomon
– African
– sea
– LGBTQ+ rep
– adult

Here’s is what my goal is for my MAGIC card:

The pink boxes are my primary goals, while blue is a secondary goal. You can double up on prompts for this readathon, which is why I could technically just read my highest priority books and still complete that pink column.

I think this is a totally reasonable goal for me! Three of the books are short and two are rereads. Also, given that it is an entire month, it gives me the flexibility to still mood read and even read books outside of this list, while still leaving time to get these done.
