Medieval-A-Thon Wrap Up

I have finally fought my way to the end of Medieval-a-thon. I got out of prison, equipped myself with weapons and animal companions, and eventually clothes, and I worked my way up from Prisoner to Princess. And I think I did really well, considering I started nine days late and read a fair few books that I couldn't shoe-horn into the prompts.

Check out a full list of prompts and my original Medieval-A-Thon TBR.

Wrap Up

I think I did OK with this readathon. I probably could have made it to Empress if I didn't get distracted by so many romances that I couldn't make fit the prompts, but right now I really need romance in my life. And I did have a bit of a mishap with one of the books I was most eager to read. But life happens, and I had fun regardless.

Medieval-A-Thon start

So these are the prompts I complete and the books I read, in the order that I read them:
  • A Romance
  • Orange on the Dust Jacket
  • A Book High on Your Shelf
  • Start or Finish a Duology 
    • I was supposed to be reading Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury but the pages started falling as I was reading so I had to switch. Luckily I had Grace & Fury on my bookshelf, which I got from a Fairyloot box years ago.
  • A Book with You Favourite Colour on the Spine
    • I was supposed to read The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite for this prompt, but by the end of the month I needed something sweet and funny and uplifting, and I know that the Waiting for Callback books would do that. Plus, it's red.

I honestly had such excellent fun, and I really enjoyed the sense of community on Twitter with everyone taking part. It was wonderful and I will absolutely join in again next year! I know that I deviated quite a bit from my initial TBR, but it was worth it.

And just look at my character! Franki did an amazing job and I love her so much.
