Welcome all! In the month of March I am taking part in two readathons, Trope-ical Readathon and Women’s History Month Readathon. I won’t be reading separate books for these two readathons because we all know my reading speed! I have selected the books in such a way that they fit both the readathons. I do have one extra book for the Women’s History Month Readathon TBR because it is small, but other than that the rest all are same for both the readathons. Both of these readathons are starting today. Now, lets get into the TBRs.
This year too like last year, I am participating in the Trope-ical Readathon. Trope-ical Readathon is hosted by @jenjenreviews and @bookrob13. Trope-ical Readathon is a team-based readathon with the five teams: Team Romance, Team Science Fiction/Fantasy, Team Mystery/Horror/Thriller, Team Contemporary/Literary/Historical Fiction, Team Non-Fiction/Poetry. You have to be part of one of these five teams. As the name suggests this Readathon is totally based on tropes, so all the challenges/prompts for this readathon are based on various tropes found in books. There are total 15 challenges/prompts. 13 are common challenges which are common for all the teams and 2 are team specific challenges for each of the five teams. You can select any team and you can read books of any genre whether or not they satisfy the team genre. But you cannot double/triple/etc up on the prompts. There is also a team book for each of the teams. For each book you complete during the Readathon you get some points based on the type of challenge it satisfies or if it is a team book. Also you will get points for each page you read during the Readathon irrespective of whether or not it fits any challenge. As I explained before it is a team based challenge, so based on the points you and your team members collect one of the teams will emerge as the winner. It is a month long readathon which will take place during the entire month of March. To know more about the challenges, the team books, the points system and to sign up click on this link. The sign up ends on 7th March.
Now let’s get to my TBR.
My Trope-ical Readathon TBR
I am joining Team Romance!
Among the 13 team challenges I am taking part in only three. Actually the team challenges and team books carry much more points than common challenges, so I am prioritising the team challenges and team books (You can choose to read any or all of the Team Books, it doesn’t matter which team you are from) over common challenges. Unfortunately the only team book I own is Fat Chance, Charlie Vega. So, that is the only team book I will be reading, since the Netgalley Gods decided to not grant my request for Accidently Engaged 😔.
As always I have an ambitious TBR with 6 books again. Now, let’s get them, shall we?
Absent/Dead Parent(s): Iron Heart by Nina Varela. After finishing Crier’s War last month, it took everything in me to stop myself from starting Iron Heart immediately abandoning all my review copies and tour books. But well… my willpower has some limit, right?
A Book with One-Word Title: Mahasweta by Sudha Murty
An Audiobook: Well Met by Jen DeLuca
The two team challenges for Team Romance are: Read a book with the “Celebrity Romance” trope and Read a book with the “Paranormal Romance” trope. I will be reading:
Celebrity Romance: Royally Screwed by Emma Chase
Paranormal Romance: Mating the Huntress by Talia Hibbert
As I said earlier, the only team book I will be reading is Fat Chance, Charlie Vega by Crystal Maldonado.
Women’s History Month Readathon runs during the month of March, aka Women’s History Month, and is aimed at celebrating women’s stories. The goal of this readathon is to read books written by women. To make things a bit more fun and to guide our reading for those who might need it, there is also a bingo board. I won’t be attempting to get bingos, but I will be using the bingo squares as reading guides. Now let’s get to my TBR.
My WHMReadathon TBR
I will be attempting 7 bingo squares and I will read one book for each of the square. So, I am planning to read 7 books in total for this readathon.
Purple on Cover: Royally Screwed by Emma Chase
Fewer than 1K Ratings on Goodreads: Mating the Huntress by Talia Hibbert
