The #IronTomeAThon : Wrap Up

IronTomeAThon

When I started this readathon (hosted by Aimal), I was mostly just trying to challenge myself to read atleast a bit of Adult Fantasy because while I love the fantasy genre a lot, I’ve always been a huge fan of the YA side of it.  And though I made a huge TBR post (here), I obviously didn’t stick to it nor complete all the challenges. I also read a lot of Indian mythology based fantasies because they are my comfort zone and I just couldn’t make myself read more of the popular books like the group challenge The Poppy War. But I still feel like I’ve accomplished something and would love to share all the deets here. And I have to mention that all my points count towards HOUSE STARK.

I also participated in the twitter chat, so I automatically get 300 points.

    1. Thank you Sim…!!! Indian mytho retellings are definitely easier to read 😂😂😂 Otherwise I only managed 2 adult fantasies which is so far away from my TBR… but yes, I’m glad I read Jade City because we all can discuss it 😃😃😃 I want to read Jade War but maybe I’ll wait for a couple of weeks… need to read some happy romances in between 😂😂😂
