Olympic Games Readathon – July 2021

Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little corner of the internet. It’s the end of June, and, naturally, I’ve found more work for myself next month. I did the Olympic Games Readathon last year (find my TBR here and completion post here) and with it moving to July this year, I wasn’t looking out for it…. Until I saw someone post about it.

Yesterday.

When I’ve already taken on two challenges for Path or Pantheon.

Chronic fear of failure and tendancy to overwhelm myself, you say? But of course!

So I took the Which God Are You Decended From? test from Rick Riodan’s website, and it came back with…. Athena!

Now as far as Greek goddesses and gods go, they’re all a bit dickish at times (Medusa did NOT deserve to be cursed), and I am more of an Egypt girl, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Athena despite the Medusa thing.

You can find the video about the Readthon here and the Google Drive Files for all of the info here.

Athena Mandatory Challenges

Athena favours those who seek knowledge beyond all. Read a book that features a school

Small Spaces

Read a middle grade book

The Haunting of Aveline Jones

It takes a great mind to pull off a quest. Read a book that features a quest or mission

Sorcery of Thorns (I had to give myself at least one crossover with P/P for any chance of finishing!)

Athena is a favourite among gods and mortals alike. Read a book by your favourite author

This prompt I struggled with as I don’t really have a favourite author. However, I decided to go with the author of one of my favourite book series, and picked The Name of the Star by Maureen Jones. You can find my devoted love for her in my reviews of the Truly Devious books, all four of which are on my site.

Athena and her children are recognizable by their stormy eyes. Read a book with a grey cover

Forest of Souls

So those are the mandatory challenges. There are also optional extras that you can find the information for in the Google Drive that I’m not going to attempt because I’m already taking on a lot of books for July! But if you’re interested, I’m cheering you on; some of the prompts are absolutely brilliant!

Keep your fingers crossed for me – I might need all the help I can get. In the meantime, keep your eyes out for daily posts!

  1. Gosh, that sounds like quite an advanced challenge, good luck with it all! I’m always amazed at what people manage to come up with! I am about to explore my NetGalley shelf to see what I need to read in July, having managed all but one of my June reads …
