The Autumn Readathon is a one-week readathon that’s hosted by one of my favourite booktubers, Mercedes from MercysBookishMusings. This is the readathon’s second year and has prompts based around autumnal themes.
There are four prompts and two bonus prompts. I will say I don’t think I’ll be able to through all of the prompts but it’s still fun to pick a book for each one.
The #Autumnreadathon runs from Saturday 20th to Friday 26th October.
1. Read a gothic/spooky book
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
2. Read a nonfiction with an autumnal feel
The World of Lore: Wicked Mortals by Aaron Manke
3. Read a novel set in a cold location
The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss — I feel like this is set in England and it gets cold there haha yeah this might be a bit of a stretch oh well.
4. Read a historical fiction novel
Beautiful Revolutionary by Laura Elizabeth Woollett
5. Read a short story collection
Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales by Angela Carter
6. Read an adult book about a young female protagonist
The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker — this one might be a stretch but from what I know about Briseis she was married off quite young and not long after the Trojan War happened.
That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know if you’re taken part in the challenge and let me know what you’re planning on reading.
Until next time, happy reading!
