Fantasy JourneyAThon | Round 1

Soooo, today I am bringing you guys a BRAND NEW READATHON! That’s right another ReadAThon and this one completely new!
I have been wanting to do this ReadAThon for AGES, but I didn’t know how to really go about it, so over the past few months I have been brainstorming how to go about it and creating the map and it’s finally all fallen together. And here it is!


21st – 30th of June 2019!

How to?

Firstly, here is the map!

The Map break down:
Option 1: New Beijing > Shoel 1 > Kalyazin > Hogwarts
Option 2: Medora > Emberfall > Dustwalk > Hogwarts
Option 3: New Reynes > Ellingham Academy > The Shire > Hogwarts
Option 4: The Ice Court > Fennbirn > Cabeswater > Hogwarts

So for this Round your goal is to JOURNEY to Hogwarts!
So pick a starting point (The Ice Court, New Beijing, Medora or New Reynes) and follow the footprints, completing the challenges along the way, until you make it to Hogwarts!

So the aim is to complete 4 books!
However do not let me stop you! Journey ahead if you wish once you have arrived at Hogwarts! Borrow a Thestral and Journey on to Dustwalk or commandeer the Durmstrang ship and flee to The Ice Court. Once you reach Hogwarts, the path is up to you!

The Locations?

So incase you were curious or not familiar with some of these locations, here are what books each of these locations are from!

New Beijing – The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Shoel 1 – The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Kalyazin – Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Medora – The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni
Emberfall – A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Dustwalk – Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
New Reynes – Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
Ellingham Academy – Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson (I realise that this is not a Fantasy book but this Academy feels like a Fantasy, so I’m counting it! Also it’s my ReadAThon and I can do what I like 😂)
The Shire – The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Ice Court – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Fennbirn – Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Cabeswater – The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
Hogwarts – Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

The Challenges?

New Beijing – Read a Sci-Fi Book

Sheol 1 – Read a Dystopian Book

Kalyazin – Read a book with Blood on the Cover OR Read a book with a Red Cover

Medora – Read a book with the ‘Chosen One’ Trope

Emberfall – Read a Retelling/Reimagining

Dustwalk – Read a book about a Rebellion 

New Reynes – Read a book that has a Card Suit on the cover (Heart, Spade, Diamond or Club)

Ellingham Academy – Read a Mystery Book

The Shire – Read a book that is at least 10 years old

The Ice Court – Read a book following ‘Criminals’

Fennbirn – Read a book with Multiple POV

Bonus Info: You can use the Book/Series in which the Location comes from for that Locations challenge! For Example you could Read Ace of Shades for the New Reynes challenge as Ace of Shades has a Card Suit on the cover! This method works with all of the Challenges!

    1. Thanks for picking up on that! Editing it now. I changed the dates of the ReadAThon part way through organising it but forgot to change that part on the post. Points will need to be submitted 9:00pm 2nd of July.


    1. You are welcome to interpret the challenges however you wish. For example for the Card Suit Challenge, you can choose a book with an actual human heart on the cover, with a 🖤 on the cover or the word ‘heart’. Or for a Diamond you could choose a book with a ♦️ or an actual diamond 💎 (or at least something that looks like a clear stone) or the word in the title. You are welcome to interpret them as much as you want as long as you can reason as to why you choose that book for that challenge. Of course, Spade & Club is a little more difficult but you can also use the words.
