A book I finished reading recently: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho. (Read from: 8/8/19 to 8/18/19; yes, it took me a while 😅)
🌟🌟🌟/5 stars
.
This was one of the books on my TBR for the Myth-Take Readathon and the only book I actually finished reading. 😅 Wicked Fox actually fulfills 5 of the 9 challenges so I still got a bingo by finishing this book: over 400 pages, host recommendation, animal on the cover. (Other challenges: written by POC, Asian influence, written by a women)
.
What I like about this book: all the kdrama-like scenes and references~ While reading, it made me want to watch a k-drama, because I can just see some of the scenes happening. 😂 For instance (warning: spoilers): when Jihoon and Changwan was climbing over the school gates to get inside the school as they were late to class, and when Jihoon caught Miyoung in his arms when a car was passing by 😂 I like how by the end, or towards the end, each character was memorable. (At least, for me they were~)
.
I wouldn't say this was one of my favorite reads of the the year, but I wouldn't say I dislike it. There were certain parts I disliked, but not enough for me to dislike it as a whole. I think being a k-drama fan (or just an asian drama fan) made my reading experience more enjoyable~
.
The other 2 books on my TBR for Myth-Take: A Curse So Dark and Lonely, Circe. I was going to read A Curse So Dark and Lonely next, as it's a book that fit many challenges for other Readathons I want to participate in, but since there isn't much time before school starts for me, I decided to perhaps just read the books I've been wanting to read. I'm currently debating between Aristotle & Dante and Red, White and Royal Blue; Aristotle & Dante would fit for one of the challenges, so I was leaning towards it more; but I think Red, White and Royal Blue may be a book I'd really like... Since I'm still unsure, I just went with a manga series for now: Honey So Sweet (on volume 5 now)~ So far, I’m really liking it; I ship the 2 couples so much already~ 😊

I was unable to contain my excitement for #newts2019 and #MythTakeReadathon but unfortunately I got into a reading slump.. I was enjoying my current read, The Bear and The Nightingale, but then it started being slow and I just didn't want to get back to it.. I really wanted to like this book.. and I really wanted to participate in the readathons.. but .. no one has ever been successful in forcing the reading slump out.. 😕 .

Hello, today is the last day for #mythtakereadathon 
Instead of reading this brick of a book  I went book shopping with a friend 🙈
Definitely not going to finish this book in 4hs as I'm currently on page 43😂
Fingers crossed I'll be able to finish Priory of the Orange tree by this week.

A little fun fact, I specifically bought this tiny toy dragon from IKEA just to take a picture with it next to Priory😂

As one readathon ends, another one starts... The #mythtakereadathon ends today! It’s been so fun hosting a readathon and seeing everyone’s updates on here and twitter! Thank you to everyone who joined us 🙌🏻 But it’s not over yet - there’s still the rest of today AND a twitter chat later on to join! I can’t wait ✨ .

But with that readathon ending comes the smooth transition into the #FemmeFanTale readathon 🙌🏻 I’ll be starting Spin The Dawn today as they can apply for both, and I’m so excited! I’m also hoping to get to Vengeful this week, though that’s somewhat intimidating since it’s quite a chunk 🙈 We’ll see how this goes!
.

Have you read either of these? .

My final read for the #mythtakereadathon 🌱

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, although it had some pacing issues and I am still on the fence about the romance. I am intrigued to see where the sequel goes though. ✂️

A THOUSAND SHIPS // NATALIE HAYNES ⠀
IF NOT, WINTER // SAPPHO t. ANNE CARSON ⠀
⠀
Gearing up for Cosy Reading Night tonight!! An evening, hosted seasonally by @laurenandthebooks, dedicated to snuggling up with snacks, jammies and a stack of books. I've had a hectic (but fun) week so some chill time is definitely on the cards. ⠀
⠀
Here is my TBR for the evening. It actually overlaps quite nicely with the #mythtakereadathon which ends this weekend. ⠀
⠀
A Thousand Ships is a feminist retelling of the Trojan War. I've heard such good things about it and can't wait to sink into a good novel for a few hours and see how Haynes reincarnates such a commonly retold story. ⠀
⠀
If Not, Winter is a collection of the surviving work from the Archaic Greek poet Sappho. She is widely regarded as one of the greatest poets of the time, and often regarded as queer - given the homoerotic nature of much of her poetry and what little we know about her - in fact the words 'sapphic' and 'lesbian' come from her name and her home island of Lesbos.⠀
⠀
I've really enjoyed the trend for ancient stories being re-imagined over the last few years and I would love to learn and read more about the source material. Although I consider myself academically married to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a little dalliance with the antiquities might be a good time 💃🏻 ⠀
⠀
Let me know if you're joining in tonight and what you'll be reading! ⠀

The picture says it all ✨

I’m really eager to read BOTH of these at the minute, though I’m itching to get back to Nevernight. But I think my aim for tonight is to finish Wicked Fox/Gumiho since the audiobook I’m listening along to says I only have 4 hours left (and I speed it up). Oh, and also because it’s my final read for the #mythtakereadathon. Fingers crossed I can get through it tonight! .
.
I’ve uploaded a new video on my booktube channel all about how I annotate my books, AND have a full book review of The Sisters of the Winter Wood on my blog (spoiler, I’m disappointed). The links to both my channel and my blog are in my bio!

I've finally finished Kingdom of Copper! It was rough for a bit because I struggle with books full of isolated characters, but I really liked the last section where everyone started working together better. 🌱
I am really looking forward to the next one, especially if we get a Jamshid or Muntadhir viewpoint. Or Zaynab! There's so many good possibilities for a Daevabad viewpoint other than Dara because this book did not convince me to like him anymore than the last one did. 🔥

I’m currently reading The Wren Hunt for #mythtakereadathon , it was a monthly book for #mythtakereads a little while ago. I’m about 50 pages in so far and it’s good, I’m kind of getting into the story but I’m just in such a weird reading mood. I’m almost in a reading slump but not 🤷🏻‍♀️ , it’s weird. I think that I kind of want to read a different genre than fantasy but it goes against the readathon. Also I’m craving some lighter, no brain kind of reads because of all the books and articles I’m reading for uni so I have a bit of a dilemma! I think I’m unfortunately not going to take part in the other readathon I’d planed to do this month because I need to take the pressure off reading that I seem to have put on myself! Anyway there’s my little reading update, how’s everyone else’s reading going this month? .

Finally finished my first #mythtakereadathon book! I have mixed feelings about this one. I loved the mythological aspect of the story, but the romance felt weird.

Who wore it better? 💁‍♀️
.
I read The Children of Jocasta on Saturday for the #basicallyreadathon and I really enjoyed it. I gave it 4 ⭐️s.
.
It’s also the second book I finished for the #mythtakereadathon and it fit the prompt to read a mythology retelling (Oedipus and Antigone).
.
I didn’t dislike it at the start, but I was a little confused. I was quickly sucked in, however, and I soon fell in love with the story. The characters were amazing and so was Natalie Haynes’ writing.
.
I’ll definitely be checking out her other books soon and I’ll probably buy my own copy of this too in time!
.
In other news, my joint booktube channel has finally gone live. It’s not yet linked in my bio, but you can find us at The Indecisive Readers!
.
I also reviewed Wicked Fox yesterday (that link is in my bio), but the former is much more exciting!

With a mixture of painkillers, tea and insomnia, I managed to finish The Kingdom of Copper at 3.30am. I suppose there's an upside to fibromyalgia 😀

Couldn't wait to read the sequel to City of Brass. Now that this beauty has arrived (all 625 pages of it) I fear not much else will get read until I have finished it. It does have green and yellow on the cover and fits with several other Myth Take Readathon challenges though 😀

THE WINTER OF THE WITCH // KATHERINE ARDEN ⠀
⠀
Happy Sunday lovely friends! 🌻⠀
⠀
We're nearing the end of the first week of the #mythtakereadathon, and I'm flying through the last novel in the Winternight Trilogy. So far it's honestly everything I could have hoped for. Arden doesn't mess around, in the first fifty pages there was so much happening, and the stakes felt so high, that I was swept straight back into this beautiful, breathless story as if I'd never been away.⠀
⠀
I love that we're learning more about the magic system, and that Vasya is growing into her power and becoming her own champion. There are moments of beautiful warmth and love between the characters but also horrific, bone-chilling scenes of real danger, and it creates this wonderful story that is somehow mythical and incredibly modern. I ADORE it. ⠀
⠀
 I'm having a super chilled, snuggly Sunday in my PJs with the cat so I might well finish it today! ⠀
⠀
What are you reading this weekend? ⠀

As I will be going to Shannon Chakraborty's literary event in Liverpool in a couple of weeks, I decided to ammend my Myth Take Readathon TBR list. The City of Brass fit several of the challenges so I swopped it in.  I totally loved this book and can't wait to read the second one now. So good ☺️

I’m currently reading To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. So far it seems interesting and I’m liking the writing. I had planned to read it all today for the #basicallyreadathon and you know what, I didn’t, I just started it late this afternoon 😂. But it’s okay, I was too busy reading and thinking about The Priory of the Orange Tree which was just brilliant btw. So that’s my first book for the #mythtakereadathon finished! I’m counting it for over 400 pages, Asian influence and animal on the cover. .

I’m currently reading To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. So far it seems interesting and I’m liking the writing. I had planned to read it all today for the #basicallyreadathon and you know what, I didn’t, I just started it late this afternoon 😂. But it’s okay, I was too busy reading and thinking about The Priory of the Orange Tree which was just brilliant btw. So that’s my first book for the #mythtakereadathon finished! I’m counting it for over 400 pages, Asian influence and animal on the cover. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #aussiebookstagrammer #alwaysreading #bookish #reading #currentlyreading #currentread #readathon #youngadultfiction #fantasy #fairytaleretelling #littlemermaid #tokillakingdom #alexandrachristo #fantasybooks #yafiction #yafantasy #currentbook
So excited to start this one! Book 3 of #MythTakeReadathon A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan! This is a Midas retelling and book one of a series. This book will let me cross of 2 spaces on my bingo board! #atouchofgold #anniesullivan #bookblogger #bookworm #bookstagram

What has everyone been doing this past week?
I've taken a small break from reading as I am working on a mini project that I am so excited about. I cannot wait to have it all up and running. ✨💞
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nonetheless, I've read quite a number of books:
1) The Black Tides of Heaven for #mythathon this is one that I'll highly recommend!
2) An Ember in the Ashes for #newtsreadathon2019 and #mythathon 
3) SoA, The Hand The Eye and The Heart, Silver in the wood for #mythtakereadathon @mythtakereads
I would also recommend SoA if you are into a slow burn love. If you love Circe, please read SoA.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am quite delighted by the progress I have made. ✨💞

Hi lovelies 👋 this is my new profile picture, I felt like changing it up a bit! What are you currently reading? And how’s your August going? Comment below, I’d love to know 😊. .
.
I’m still reading The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon and it’s so good! I really like that it has multiple perspectives based in different places, so through the four protagonists you get a lot of depth to the story and different perspectives. I’m hoping I’ll finish it today so I can start a new book for the #basicallyreadathon (and of course the #mythtakereadathon ) tomorrow, I’m think I’ll read To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo because it’s been on my shelf for the longest time! Ideally I’ll be able to read that and start another book but we’ll see how things go, I’m usually way to optimistic in how much I’ll read 😂

Day 4 of #mythtakereadathon 
First book completed for the readathon, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.

I loved this book so much as a child and it still remains on my favourites list. 
I really enjoy reading books that are inspired by Chinese folklore. I think it helps me feel more connected to the culture that I wasn't really exposed to as a kid and also because the stories themselves are so interesting. 
What are some of the books you see yourself in or feel connected to? I'm really curious to know😊

Here’s my library book haul from today. I also brought Tipping the Velvet from their sale books, I’ve seen it on #bookstagram a lot so I’m intrigued. .
.
#mythtakereadathon update, I’m just over half way through The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon (I’m loving it btw). I’m think about changing my TBR for the rest of the readathon by swapping Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Mariller for The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson because it fills more prompts and it’s half the size! I’m realising I really don’t have time to read loads of over 500 page books 🤷🏻‍♀️. Does anyone know if Daughter of Smoke and Bone is based on any folklore or myths? I  really want to read it next but I don’t know if it fits the readathon #bookishproblems .

Day 2 of the #mythtakereadathon 
Brought Circe to the beach with me. 
Originally I wanted to go to the beach yesterday but it rained. Today the weather forecast said it was going to rain however once I reached the beach it was so hot.☀️ I got a lot of reading while I was there, the sound of the waves is very relaxing and the water was nice and cool. 
Circe is such an amazing book. When I started rereading chapter one I remembered why I loved this novel so much.

Just finished my first book of the Myth Take Readathon.  Really enjoyed The Hand, The Eye And The Heart by Zoe Marriott. A retelling based on Mulan which fullfilled the 'Read a book with Asian influences', 'Read a book with over 400 pages' and 'Book of the Month' challenges.

THE WINTER OF THE WITCH // KATHERINE ARDEN⠀
⠀
It's a bit of a bittersweet day today. I'm starting the final novel in the Winternight trilogy, one of the best fantasy series I've read in the past few years. ⠀
⠀
On the one had I want to savour this experience because it's probably the last we'll get to see of Vasya, and the incredibly rich, textured world she lives in. This fantastical, folklore-infused Medieval Russia is such a refreshing change from the usual fantasy settings, and Arden never babies you through it, or info dumps on you. The world reveals itself to you like a flower unfurling and it is so wonderful to enjoy a series that treats its readers like competent adults. ⠀
⠀
On the other hand I know I'm going to love this and I am DESPERATE to see how the story concludes so I'll probably just end up tearing through this because discipline? self-control? What are these concepts? ⠀

Day one of the #mythtakereadathon and, considering I was hoping to read six books in the next fortnight, I’m doing pathetically, really. I’m only about seven chapters in and I’m not even reading it now 🙈
.
Still, I have been tidying and I’m now going to try to write a blog post - both important things!
.
I also had to go into town this morning to talk to someone about a PR work experience thing in a fashion company, hence the heels! It was stressful to know what to wear just for coffee with them 😅
.
I *think* (emphasis on think - we’ve got to see how the first few days go!) I’m going to try vlogging this readathon because our booktube channel has to start somewhere - wish me luck!

I’m finally reading The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon! I’m glad I picked it for the #mythtakereadathon because as of 100 pages in I’m loving it. So far there’s a lot going on, a lot of perspectives and a lot of history/politics but I think Shannon’s writing makes it easy to keep up with because it’s so readable.
.
.
This fits the prompts: Host recommendation, Animal on the cover and Asian influence.

EVERYTHING UNDER // DAISY JOHNSON ⠀
A THOUSAND SHIPS // NATALIE HAYNES⠀
THE WINTER OF THE WITCH // KATHERINE ARDEN⠀
⠀
Happy Sunday friends! 🌿⠀
⠀
Is anyone else taking part in the #mythtakereadathon? It starts tomorrow, on Monday 🙌🏻 I'm participating in a pretty casual way, only ticking off about four of the prompts but I'm really looking forward to reading all of these books so I figure it's best to go with my enthusiasm rather than trying to read books I'm not that fussed about purely to fill out the bingo board. Here are the three I'm planning to read for the next two weeks. ⠀
⠀
The Winter of the Witch is the third in the Winternight series, and I adored the last two books. The series is set in a fantastical Medieval Russia and explores the clash between traditional folklore and christian influences through the eyes of the amazing heroine Vasya. ⠀
⠀
A Thousand Ships is a feminist retelling of the story of the Trojan War, restoring and revitalising the voices of the female characters who are often sidelined by the early stories. If you've seen my earlier post on The Silence of the Girls you'll know that I was hella disappointed, so I'm hoping this will give me what I wanted from that novel. ⠀
⠀
Everything Under is a Man Booker shortlister from last year and, from what I can tell, it combines the myth of Oedipus and ancient English folklore into a modern-day incarnation that gets REALLY weird. I know nothing else but I feel like that's the best way to go into this kind of story... ⠀
⠀
The all dark, moody-blue aesthetic was an accident but I'm not complaining. Let me know if you're participating and what you're looking to read! ⠀

Next week is the start of the Myth Take Readathon which is a two week challenge involving reading retellings of fairytales, folktales or mythology. I think my list may be a bit ambitious but I am going to give it a go.

I've got my books picked out for #newts #mythtakereadathon And #basicallyreadathon plus two extras I want to read I'm so dead XDD who else is doing these
This is my ambitious #mythtakereadathon TBR. I managed to pick books that are all over 500 pages and I’m not sure how that happened 🤷🏻‍♀️, I just really want to read all of these so I’m just going to try my best to read them during the two week readathon (5th- 18th August). Also hopefully joining in on the 24h #basicallyreadathon (10th August) will help me finish either Children of Blood and Bone or the Priory of the Orange Tree because they’ve both been on my TBR for ages. ———————————————
Anyway here are the categories that these books fit:

This is my ambitious #mythtakereadathon TBR. I managed to pick books that are all over 500 pages and I’m not sure how that happened 🤷🏻‍♀️, I just really want to read all of these so I’m just going to try my best to read them during the two week readathon (5th- 18th August). Also hopefully joining in on the 24h #basicallyreadathon (10th August) will help me finish either Children of Blood and Bone or the Priory of the Orange Tree because they’ve both been on my TBR for ages. ——————————————— Anyway here are the categories that these books fit: 🐉The Priory of the Orange Tree (Host rec, animal on the cover, Asian influence) 🐉The Kingdom of Copper (over 400 pages, green or yellow on the cover, mythology retelling) . 🐉Children of Blood and Bone (written by POC, mythology retelling, host rec) 🐉Daughter of the Forest (Book of the month, written by a woman) . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #aussiebookstagrammer #alwaysreading #bookish #bookworm #tbr #tbrpost #tbrpile #augusttbr #readathontbr #toberead #fantasy #fantasybooks #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #thekingdomofcopper #sachakraborty #childrenofbloodandbone #tomiadeyemi #daughteroftheforest #julietmarillier #mythology #retelling #mythretelling #mythtakereads #readathon
It’s ONE WEEK until the #mythtakereadathon!! And here’s my TBR 🙌🏻 I feel like this is somewhat ambitious for two weeks, but I’m really excited to get to them all so I hope I can tick them off my TBR! Have you read any of them?
.
.
Besides the MythTakeReadathon, I’ll also be participating in the 24 Hour #BasicallyReadathon AND the #FemmeFanTale readathon in August. I have a full August TBR video coming on Wednesday so I’ll share all the books I hope to read then, but I’m super excited for them all 🙌🏻 Are you taking part in any readathons in August? Let me know! .

Someone pleeeease tell me I’m not insane.
.
This is my TBR for the #mythtakereadathon (a two week readathon 🤦‍♀️). I want to read all the books on this pile and I couldn’t decide which ones to focus on, so I’m going to try to rush through them all. Also, some of them are library books, so they sort of need including too...
.
The Hand, The Eye & The Heart
- The book of the month
- Asian influences
The Children of Jocasta
- Mythology retelling
The Blue Salt Road
- Animal on the cover
Gumiho/Wicked Fox
- Host recommendation
- Written by a POC
Tangleweed and Brine
- Written by a woman
The Kingdom of Copper
- Green on the cover
- Over 400 pages
.
Whilst there are six on here, a couple of them are shorter, so I have my fingers crossed I’ll be okay! There are also a lot that overlap, so I know which books are my priorities and which I’ll be able to get away with not finishing.
.
I’ll be taking advantage of the collaboration with the #basicallyreadathon too - while I won’t be reading a book that’s been on my TBR forever, I’ll definitely be trying to read as much as I can!
.
At #yalc on Friday, I got my copy of The Hand, The Eye & The Heart signed. Zoe Marriott’s talk was so interesting (more to come on that later) and OF COURSE I told her that it was the #mythtakereads book of the month in August - she was so excited!

Currently reading 📖 Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb. This is the first book I’ve read by Hobb and I’m really liking her writing style. ————————————————
I mentioned a little while ago that I wanted to read more fantasy so this is hopefully the beginning of my mostly fantasy month of reading. There are a few readathons I’m hoping to join in August, #mythtakereadathon (hosted by @afrolicthroughfiction and @beigepages ) and #femmefantale (hosted by @jeansthoughts and @jill.scott.9 ). Hopefully I’ll have time to read a few books for each but I’ll be happy with one considering my uni readings and assignments. Anyway I’ll be posting some TBRs (or more likely a totally unachievable pile of books that fit the prompts but I won’t be able to read) for them soon! .

Have you read any Mulan retellings? How about this one? .
.

The Hand, The Eye and The Heart is our August book of the month for Myth-Take! Why have we announced it early? Well, because of the #MythTakeReadathon! Our challenge to read the book of the month is worth double points, and so we figured we’d announce it a little earlier than usual and give you time to scout it out. I’m so excited to be reading this non-binary Mulan retelling 🙌🏻✨ .
.
.
Remember, you don’t have to take part in Myth-Take every single month to be part of it - just join us when you want to! You also don’t *have* to be participating in the readathon to read this one along with us - though of course we hope you do! OR if you really don’t fancy reading this one, you can choose a retelling of your own choice and tell us all about it! Any retelling will do ☺️✨ just remember the use the hashtag #MythTakeReads for all your updates! .
.
Another one I have my eyes on at the moment is Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim. I know I’ll end up breaking soon and buying it 🙈 I really shouldn’t but hey ho, books are my life aha. .

Are you a fan of readathons? ✨ I feel like I have quite a few readathon related updates! It’s funny because I didn’t used to like them, and now I LOVE them! So much so...
.

I’m co-hosting a readathon with @beigepages as part of #mythtakereads!! I have a whole video announcement to explain bingo board challenges, point scoring systems and the lot, so head to the link in my bio for that! 🙌🏻 we’re both so so excited about this, so please do join us if you can! In August I’m also planning on taking part in the FemmeFanTale readathon hosted by @jeansthoughts and @jill.scott.9 too, so I’m super excited to build a TBR from all the prompts both from ours and theirs! .
.
As for the readathon I’m taking part in NOW, I’m about to finish my FIFTH book for @the.book.junkie.trials! I’ve been reading so quickly lately and I’m THRILLED. Let’s hope the momentum keeps up for August! .
