There are some absolutely amazing readathons out there, that I have gone absolutely mad and decided to tackle them all. I think I have been part of a readathon non-stop for the past 5 or 6 months maybe! The latest readathon I’m participating in is the Mythothon Round 2 which runs throughout September. If you would like more info visit the Twitter or have a nose at the sign-up post here, Mythothon round 2 announcement post.
There are two paths to follow so I’m gonna do a TBR for both paths and hope for the best! FINALLY, I PINNED A TBR DOWN. You honestly don’t know how long it has taken me to complete and finalise this TBR. It is ridiculous. Also, I will most probably jiggle it about anyway!!!
