Make Your Myth-Taker TBR

Make Your Myth-Taker is a VERY complicated looking readathon that I can't wait to join in with.

It took me about two weeks to decide which path I wanted to go down, and after a quick Twitter poll which I ended up doing the opposite of anyway, I think I finally have it figured out.

I have decided that I am going to go down the Warrior track, specifically aiming for Mercenary. It's the options that got me the most excited, and I knew just glancing at the prompts what I wanted to read for them. I do have the option of crossing over to the Sorcerer/Witch path for the final book, but I don't think I'm going to.

Make Your Myth-Taker TBR

I'm planning to take it easy with this readathon and only read four books, because it's summer and my symptoms get worse in the heat so I can't read as much, and I don't want to put a huge amount of pressure on myself.

You have to read the books in order of the prompts for this readathon, which does have me a little apprehensive - I am a massive mood reader. So by sticking to 4, I can dip in and out of the readathon and read other things around it. Phew.



  • Anticipated Read
    • A Phoenix First Must Burn edited by Patrice Caldwell
      I got this in my April Wildest Dreams box (and it's signed!) and I'm very excited to read it. I love anthologies and this one promises to be breathtaking.
  • Read a Book with a Weapon on the Cover
    • Blood and Sand by CV Wyk
      I am a little shamed by how long this book has been on my TBR, I got it in an Illumicrate box years ago, but it has a sword on that shiny cover and it sounds incredible.
  • Featuring a magic battle
    • Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi
      I utterly adored Children of Blood and Bone and I can't wait to get stuck in to the follow up. Huge thank you to Tsam who sent me it for my birthday, I can't wait to read more about my queen Amari.
  • Inspired by History
    • Pirates! by Celia Rees
      Yes I have read this book many times before, but sometimes your soul needs something familiar and comforting. This book is inspired somewhat by Mary Read and Anne Bonny, and who doesn't love pirates?

Are you taking part in Make Your Myth-Taker?
What's on your TBR for June?


  1. Ooh this is the second post I've read recently talking about this readathon! It does sound super complicated. I'm like you, a huge mood reader. I absolutely cannot read something if I'm not in the mood for it! Best of luck for the readathon! x


    1. Honestly it's been a struggle, but the books have been excellent and I've left myself time and space for other reads :)
      Thank you!

  2. Ah, I've not heard of this readathon before! It looks a lot of fun! My TBR is HUGE already... however... ;)

    Thanks for sharing,

    1. Sometimes I feel like my actual TBR is endless haha, so many books so little time

  3. I'm doing housecupathon this month and I'm super excited about it. This readathon also sounds awesome especially the sorcerer path youve opted for!!!!

  4. I've never done a readathon before but this literally sounds like so much fun! Good luck with it and I hope they conveniently match up for what you're in the mood for as well, just to make it easier.

  5. I cannot wait to see your thoughts on Children of Virtue and Vengeance! I hope this readathon goes well!

  6. I loved Blood and Sand and see barely anyone talk about it! I hope you enjoyed!

  7. i wanted so badly to take part in this but my mood reading took over instead oops
