I tried participating in Mythothon Round 1 last year, but I had a very ambitious TBR and I think I abandoned it half way through. So, when I saw the announcement for the second round on Louise’s blog @ Foxes and Fairytales, I knew I had to participate again. However, I’m gonna be conservative this time and make a smaller TBR and not try to complete the whole bingo board. Click on the link above to know all the details about the readathon which is taking place during this month of September.

As I said above, I’m going to be realistic this time and make a TBR for the Nine World prompts (blue boxes on the centre of the board) and a few others. Let’s see if I’ll end up completing just a bingo column or the Nine Worlds 🙂
This is obviously just a plan and you all know I never stick to TBR’s, so we shall see how many of these I’ll end up reading. And there is also one option to switch any prompt for a book by a marginalized author, so I might end up making use of that too.
What do you think of my TBR? Do you think I’ll be able to read them all? What are your thoughts on these books? Are you participating in the readathon as well? Share all your thoughts and TBRs with me in the comments below…..
