My optional TBR

1st possibility is Option 1: New Beijing > Shoel 1 > Kalyazin > Hogwarts. Which in challenges term is to read a Sci-Fi > Dystopian > book with Blood or Red cover > Magic School.

2nd possibility is Option 4: The Ice Court > Fennbirn > Cabeswater > Hogwarts which is Criminals > Multiple POV > involves a King > Magic School

Option 1 TBR
New Beijing (Sci-Fi)

Across The Void by S. K. Vaughn

Pages: 368p

I have had this ARC on my shelf for a while and it sounds very interesting. I’m quite into British space book and this fit that bill ๐Ÿ˜ It’s an adult space thriller!

Shoel 1 (Dystopian)

Raging Star (Dust Lands #3) by Moira Young

Pages: 432p

Dystopian Canadian series. I loved the first two books in this series and I’m quite exited about the final instalment. I have this book on audio which I think will be better since it’s written completely in a spoken-type language.

Kalyzin (Blood/Red cover)

David Mogo: Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa

Pages: 386p

Red cover book. This is another one of my ARCs. I have heard mixed reviews of this book. The premise makes it sound like a fun adventure which reminds me a bit of Nicky Drayden and her stories. Obviously it won’t be the same, but fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž

Hogwarts (Magic School)

Air Awakens by Elise Kova

Pages: 342p

This book takes place in a magic school or library, Iโ€™m not entirely sure but it was a recommended book by the host for this challenge so Iโ€™m guessing it fits ๐Ÿ˜. I bought the entire series when it was on offer last year and I love the cover to these books. I might finally get to them ๐Ÿ˜Š

Option 2 TBR
The Ice Court (Criminals)

Nocturna (A Forgery of Magic #1) by Maja Motayne

Pages: 480p

Another ARC on my list. It follows a thief and a prince in multiple POVs on a journey. So this book could also go for the next two challenges.

I’ve heard some good things about this book and I really hope it lives up to the hype…

Fennbirn (Multiple POV)

Across the Void by S. K. Vaughn

Pages: 368p

Same as above, British space book that sounds interesting.

I have other option for this challenge but Across The Void has to be read and is split into two narration; one in space and one on Earth.

Cabeswater (Involves a King)

Kingdom of Copper (The Daevabad Trilogy #2) by S. A. Chakraborty

Pages: 640p

I have an ARC of this book but I still haven’t gotten to, and it came out in January!It’s really bad. But I promise I really do want to read it! I loved the first book and I’ve been very exited about the sequel. But for some reason I have still to pick it up.

Technically, the main character is a criminal or was a criminal and this book has multiple POVs. So again this book could be for any or the first three challenges.

Itโ€™s also quite a long book and I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll finish this or make it to the next book. Weโ€™ll see.

Hogwarts (Magic School)

Air Awakens by Elise Kova

Pages: 342p

Same as above. Set in a magical school/library. Iโ€™ve had my eyes one this book for a while and that cover is amazing!

I think I’m leaning more towards option 2 What do you think?

Also there is a companion quiz you can take and I got Team Pegasus! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyone else participating in this readathon?

    1. I ended up taking the second option which starts with criminals -> multiple POV -> involves a King. Iโ€™ve already read Nocturna for the first option. And Iโ€™m now 14% into Across the Void. Steady steam ahead ๐Ÿ˜ thanks!
