You might remember, at the beginning of the month, I announced that I was going to participate in the Iron Tome-A-Thon Reading Challenge, hosted by Aimal @ Bookshelves and Paperbacks! I usually don’t do readathons, but this one sounded so cool, I had to give it a shot. And…I actually read some of the books that I said I was going to!?
I know, I’m just as shocked as you.
I didn’t get to read all the books I planned. Mostly because I also read some books outside the readathon parameters (like a few romances and a hefty apocalyptic sci-fi) and most of the books I wanted to read for the challenges, I had to get from the library, and they took a little while for me to get and then all came in at the end of the month. Still, I’m proud of my progress and that I made the attempt at all! And those books that I didn’t get to read this month, I’ll read next month, so I’m still crossing them off of my TBR list.
A reminder that all of my points (which, you can read about the point system here) goes to the house where I pledged my loyalties.
Castle Black: Read The Group Book
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang: DIDN’T READ
Winterfell: A Book Set In a Cold Environment
The Song of All by Tina LeCount Myers: DIDN’T READ
King’s Landing: Plot Involving Royalty, Politics or Government
City of Lies by Sam Hawke: READ (Well, I’m halfway through it and will finish it by Thursday, so I’m counting this). 559 Points
Sunspear: Inspired by a Non-Western Setting
Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri: READ 496 Points
Oldtown: Involves an Institution of Knowledge/Training
Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb: DIDN’T READ *cries forever*
Valyria: About or Involving Dragons
His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik: READ 353 Points
Asshai: Dark/Grimdark or Urban Fantasy
The Court of Broken Knives by Anna Smith Spark: DIDN’T READ
So, my total points for my house comes to 1,408 points! I’m not sure if that is a good amount or not, but I read the most this month than I have in a while (especially if you include the books that didn’t count for this challenge) and for that, I’m pretty dang proud.
