Help me, for I am now obsessed with these things. Did I say help me? I mean yes, I need to read more. I read thirteen books last month and I’m going to double that. More than double it.

So here are seven readathons for May!

First is Medieval-A-Thon. It’s for the entire month. You increase your status, acquire clothes, weapons, and companions! There are eighteen prompts: seven for clothes, five for weapons and six for the animals. I’m going to collect them all, of course, because I’m like that.

Next is the Fantasy JourneyAThon! You decide your path travelling from Haroyell to Nialas. While the paths have you read between 6-8 books, I apparently will be doing all of them. No one has said I can’t, so as long as I do it in order I should be fine! There are points for pages read and challenges completed, so I’m hoping to be a great asset for my team (the Tia Auran).

SeaMaydenathon comes with four teams and four books included, so I snatched that up as fast as I could. There are points for reading books, completing prompts, and reading the group books.

To thin out your TBR, there is Read-a-thin. For this one I made sure not to look outside my immediate TBR and it sure helped me find books for prompts in the other readathons!

And to celebrate Asian characters and authors, there is the Asian Readathon! I read a lot of manga, but I went looking for some other books both on my shelves and that I haven’t heard of before to fill these prompts.

Finally I reach the readathons that do not take the entire month. First of two is the Believathon! It takes place from the 11th to the 24th.

Last but not least, the Plug and Readathon! Dedicated to ebooks and audiobooks from the 17th to the 23rd. I have a selection of ebooks, but one prompt is for a webcomic and I happened to have bought physical copies of one of my favourite webcomics last November, so I’ll be reading those offline.


My mastersheet tells me I have 34 books to read, clocking out with nearly 13 thousand pages. I’m looking forward to it. I have such a variety of books to read and a variety of formats. Even if I only get halfway there it will have been worth it!

all the physical books I must read what have I done
