This readathon is one a few of my friends are participating in and I decided to join in on the fun along with them.
The Readathon Diaries is a Vampire Diaries inspired readathon. I never watched the TV series before but I have a feeling I just might after I completed this readathon. There are three teams to choose from: Team Vampire, Team Witch and Team Werewolf. For more information regarding the readathon, make sure to check out their Instagram and Twitter.
MY READATHON DIARIES TBR
For this readathon, I decided to join Team Witch because I just love the idea of living in a magical wizarding world, if it is anything like Harry Potter of course.
BENNET — read a book featuring witches/witchcraft.
CANDLE — read a book by candle light.
COVEN — read a book featuring a close bond.
✧ Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
“Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transportation for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you anywhere you want to go.”
When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it’s the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run – and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry’s tea leaves… But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss…
So, I decided to double up on prompts for this readathon and on this book from the Olympics Readathon, otherwise I would not be able to participate in all these readathons. I am looking forward to make this reread as cosy and magical possible.
THE OTHER SIDE — read a book set in a different world/realm.
HUNTRESS’ BLOOD — read a book with blood on the cover or in the title.
✧ Everless by Sara Holland
In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.
No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.
But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.
This was the only book I could find on my shelf that fits both these prompts. I bought the book a while back at a Bargain Books Warehouse Sale and I cannot wait to finally pick it up and see what it is all about.
MYSTIC FALLS — read the group book.
✧ The Awakening by L.J. Smith
A DEADLY LOVE TRIANGLE
Elena: the golden girl, the leader, the one who can have any boy she wants.
Stefan: brooding and mysterious, he seems to be the only one who can resist Elena, even as he struggles to protect her from the horrors that haunt his past.
Damon: sexy, dangerous, and driven by an urge for revenge against Stefan, the brother who betrayed him. Determined to have Elena, he’d kill to possess her.
Collected here in one volume for the first time, volumes one and two of The Vampire Diaries, the tale of two vampire brothers and the beautiful girl torn between them.
I am quite excited to finally read this book and to dive into the world of Vampire Diaries. If I stay on track with all the books I need to read, I will definitely try to get to it.
Keep on reading and never stop telling stories.
