I think I’ve gone insane because I’m joining a Readathon I have no time to join BUT OH WELL. WHATEVER IT TAKES, YOU KNOW?
To check out more information about the Avengers Readathon, click HERE. This was created by The Perks of Being Noura! And it runs from April 14-May 14!
So because I really should focus on studying, I chose Okoye for my first S.H.I.E.L.D assignment! So here’s my TBR (I hope):
OKOYE: Book by WOC
I chose The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Choksi! Look at that gorgeous cover! Also, mythology! Romance! Fantasy! YES!
Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you’re only seventeen?
Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire…
But Akaran has its own secrets—thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most…including herself.
DORA MILAJE: DIVERSE CAST, OR ALL FEMALE ENSEMBLE
I chose The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad! This is an e-ARC from Edelweiss+ and it comes out May 14th! I’m really pumped for this one!
Fatima lives in the city of Noor, a thriving stop along the Silk Road. There the music of myriad languages fills the air, and people of all faiths weave their lives together. However, the city bears scars of its recent past, when the chaotic tribe of Shayateen djinn slaughtered its entire population — except for Fatima and two other humans. Now ruled by a new maharajah, Noor is protected from the Shayateen by the Ifrit, djinn of order and reason, and by their commander, Zulfikar.
But when one of the most potent of the Ifrit dies, Fatima is changed in ways she cannot fathom, ways that scare even those who love her. Oud in hand, Fatima is drawn into the intrigues of the maharajah and his sister, the affairs of Zulfikar and the djinn, and the dangers of a magical battlefield.
Nafiza Azad weaves an immersive tale of magic and the importance of names; fiercely independent women; and, perhaps most importantly, the work for harmony within a city of a thousand cultures and cadences.
I chose Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas because t’s the only one I have left and I’m also a part of the 2019 ToG Readathon that started in January!
SPOILERY CONTENT since this is the final book of the series:
The final battle is here.
Aelin Galathynius has vowed to save her people―but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. The knowledge that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, but her resolve is unraveling with each passing day…
With Aelin captured, friends and allies are scattered to different fates. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever. As destinies weave together at last, all must fight if Erilea is to have any hope of salvation.
Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas’s New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series draws to an explosive conclusion as Aelin fights to save herself―and the promise of a better world.
NOW… You guys might think, hey it’s only three books… yes, that’s totally true. AND if I finish this challenge and feel even crazier, I’ll try and complete my boy SPIDER-MAN:
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: GRAPHIC NOVEL/COMIC
I think I’ll read a Ms. Marvel comic! I’ve been behind on those and I miss my Muslim teen fan-fiction writing superhero!
OSCORP: REVISIT A FAVORITE BOOK
I could always re-read Percy Jackson.. or maybe I’ll re-read a Sarah Dessen novel. It’ll depend on my mood!
SPIDER-MAN: CHARACTER WITH A SECRET IDENTITY
So… I’ll probably just read another Ms. Marvel comic tbh whoops.
PETER PARKER: YA NOVEL
I have no idea yet but there are a few I need to read: Where You and I Begin (an e-ARC) or Love From A to Z (which comes out April 30th).
IRON MAN ASSIGNMENT-TONY’S SUIT: BOOK WITH RED ON IT
I seriously need to finish the 40 Rules of Love… like it’s been at least half a year?
SHURI ASSIGNMENT-WAKANDA: BOOK WITH ROYALTY
I really want to try and read Descendant of the Crane soon!
ANYWAY SO THAT’S MY REALLY AMBITIOUS TBR! (On top of that, I also want to participate in the #RamadanReadathon that starts May 4th… so let’s see how this goes!)
