Social Distancing Read-a-thons (March 21-22)

Dear book-lovers,

I have decided to join two read-a-thons this weekend of March 21-22, which are happening at the same time and with the same name 🙈

So ‘Social Distancing Readathon Edition’ is hosted by #24in48. Check out their website or connect with them via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. The hashtag used for this read-a-thon #StayHome24in48.

And ‘Social Distancing Read-a-thon’ hosted by Regan @peruseproject on her Instagram account. You can check out also her YouTube Chanel and Twitter account. The hashtag used for this read-a-thon #perusereadathon.

The idea of this read-a-thon is very simple just to read as much as you can or want this weekend, to help you escape this dark and stressful time that we have all found ourselves into. There are no rules as just read. You can try to read 24 hours during the two days of this weekend.

I will try my best. Since midnight I have already read for 7 hours and finished reading an ARC of anthology with dark fairy tale retellings – The Dark Kingdom Anthology. My review is coming soon, but I must admit that I was quite disappointed 😑

Now, let’s get to the point of this post as I was planning to share my TBR for the rest of the weekend.

TBR for Social Distancing Read-a-thons (March 21-22)

I don’t think I’ll actually be able to read all three books, but I hope to finish at least two of them 🤩

First I have two ARCs that I should finish next week, so I’m getting a head start by trying to achieve it this weekend – Julius by by Nicole Cypher and Pixieland Diaries (Pixieland Diaries #1) by Christina Bauer

Also I have been so busy with reading ARCs that I have neglected my own TBR list, so I hope to get a chance and sneak in an anticipated YA fantasy read from my local library, which I featured in yesterday’s Bookish memes on Friday post, check it out here.

Crown of Feathers (Crown of Feathers #1) by Nicki Pau Preto

crown of feathersAn Ember in the Ashes meets Three Dark Crowns in this lush debut fantasy novel about a girl who disguises herself as a boy to join a secret group of warriors that ride phoenixes into battle.

I had a sister, once…

In a world ruled by fierce warrior queens, a grand empire was built upon the backs of Phoenix Riders—legendary heroes who soared through the sky on wings of fire—until a war between two sisters ripped it all apart.

I promised her the throne would not come between us.

Sixteen years later, Veronyka is a war orphan who dreams of becoming a Phoenix Rider from the stories of old. After a shocking betrayal from her controlling sister, Veronyka strikes out alone to find the Riders—even if that means disguising herself as a boy to join their ranks.

But it is a fact of life that one must kill or be killed. Rule or be ruled.

Just as Veronyka finally feels like she belongs, her sister turns up and reveals a tangled web of lies between them that will change everything. And meanwhile, the new empire has learned of the Riders’ return and intends to destroy them once and for all.

Sometimes the title of queen is given. Sometimes it must be taken.

Crown of Feathers is an epic fantasy about love’s incredible power to save—or to destroy. Interspersed throughout is the story of Avalkyra Ashfire, the last Rider queen, who would rather see her empire burn than fall into her sister’s hands.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and being safe. Take care of yourself, stay home, relax and loose yourselves in the world of books for a bit. What are your plans for this weekend?

Happy reading,
Lady of Bookland
