Harry Potter Edition 💫 Fantasy JourneyAThon Wrap Up

The Fantasy JourneyAThon is over here in Australia so here is my Wrap Up!
I completed all 10 challenges for the ReadAThon which I’m super happy with! I had to make some changes from my TBR throughout the ReadAThon but I still worked out 10 books for the 10 challenges! I’ll be going in order of the

Stats!

Read but didn’t count for a challenge!

Firstly I finished 2 books that I had started prior to the ReadAThon. Shadow Frost by Coco Ma was the physical book that I was reading & I read the last 169 pages of this one during the ReadAThon!
You can check out my full spoiler free review HERE!

The other book I finished during the ReadAThon was Solitaire by Alice Oseman on audiobook! I listened to the last 140 minutes of Solitaire during the ReadAThon. While Solitaire was enjoyable it’s not my favourite Alice Oseman book I’ve read so far!

Next, I read Legend by Marie Lu on audiobook. I had Prodigy, book 2, on my TBR so I had to read Legend first! I found Legend enjoyable but nothing amazing and the very predictable romance was just meh…

Next I started As She Ascends by Jodi Meadows. I am reading this as part of a ReadALong, so I only read to Chapter 10 during the ReadAThon as I needed to read to Chapter 10 by Sunday. So I read 144 pages of this one during the ReadAThon!

I also started listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on audiobook during the ReadAThon. Originally I was going to use it for one of the challenges but unpredictably we had to make a quick trip to another town on the last day, so I simply ran out of time to finish it. So ended up reading something else for that challenge instead. But I did listen to 729 minutes of this one!

Challenges completed!

Read a book with a bird on the cover

For the first challenge I read Prodigy by Marie Lu on audiobook. This one I enjoyed even less than the first book in the series. The world and plot is interesting enough but it was pretty predictable and the romance is just so damn tropey & predictable!

Read a book with witches/wizards

For the next challenge I read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on audiobook. I was originally going to read this physically but I was busy and the audiobook turned out to be easier as I just didn’t have time to physically read.
Of course I love this one as it’s a reread of my favourite series!

Read a book with scarlet on the cover

Shadow of the Fox was the next audiobook I read. This one was quite good, I ended up rating it 4 stars. It was a really interesting world & plot but it wasn’t an absolute favourite.

Read a book with a tree on the cover

The next book I read was The Woods: Vol 1 which is a Graphic Novel. This is a Sci-Fi and I found it super interesting and I will definitely be continuing this series!

Read a book under 300 pages

Next I continued on with Volume 2 of The Woods. As I said I was super curious so I continued the series!

Read a book with a beautiful cover

Originally I was going to read A Million Junes by Emily Henry as it has a gorgeous cover but I ended up reading the start of the synopsis and as it compared the book to Romeo and Juliet I took that one straight off my TBR. I am not a romance fan and think Romeo and Juliet is one of the stupidest books I have been forced to read… So instead I listened to the audiobook of A Thousand Beginnings and Endings which is an anthology of retellings of Asian Myths and Legends. For the most part I enjoyed this book, of course being an anthology I didn’t enjoy every story but for the most part I enjoyed it!

Read a book with a dark theme

The next book I physically read was The Devouring Gray which for this challenge has a heavy theme of monsters & death. So it definitely fits! I quite enjoyed this one and I still need to write my review, so keep an eye out for that one!

Read a book with multiple POV or Authors

Next I read another Graphic Novel which was Volume 1 of Misfit City! I am super keen to continue this one as it hooked me from the very beginning.

Read a book with magic

So next I read another Graphic Novel. Firstly, I was going to read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for this challenge but I ended up being busy on Monday, so I didn’t have time to finish the audiobook as its 29 hours.. So at the end of Day 10 I picked up The Wicked + The Divine: Vol 7 instead as it also features magic. This was probably my least favourite of the series so far. It was back and forwards through time and was pretty confusing..

Read a book set in the real world

Lastly I read I Am Change by Suzy Zail which is set in modern day Africa, so it fits the real world challenge.
You can find my review for I Am Change HERE!

Harry Potter Edition ✨ Fantasy JourneyAThon TBR

So Fantasy JourneyAThon starts in 2 minutes as I’m writing this sentence. Originally I planned to film a TBR video for my Channel but It has been a crazy couple days and I just haven’t had the time to film & edit! Now the ReadAThon has started and my TBR still isn’t up, so here it is!

Fantasy JourneyAThon Announcement

Firstly I am on Team Gryffindor and I will be earning points throughout the week by participating in the Instagram & Litsy Challenges as well as reading!

My TBR

Read a book with a bird on the cover

This is the second book to Legend by Marie Lu, which I haven’t actually read. I planned to read it before the ReadAThon but haven’t got there. So I will also be aiming to read Legend this book!

Read a book with witches/wizards

This is of course a reread for me and I can’t wait. I’ve been really enjoying my physical reread of this series!

Read a book with scarlet on the cover

This one is an audiobook that I have had on my TBR for way too long! Finally picking it up and fulfilling this challenge!

Read a book with a tree on the cover

This one has a whole Wood on the cover, so I think it fits. This is Volume 1 in a new to me Graphic Novel series and I can’t wait to dive in!

Read a book under 300 pages

This is the other Graphic Novel I have in my TBR and I’m keen for this one too! It’s also super short so fits this challenge!

Read a book with a beautiful cover

This one definitely fits this challenge as this cover is beautiful! This is a cover read for sure as I know nothing about this book! This one is also an audiobook I will be listening to.

Read a book with a dark theme

I don’t know much about this one but I have it on my physical TBR and it looks super dark and creepy!

Read a book with multiple POV or Authors

This is my next audiobook and this is an anthology. So not only does it have multiple POV but it also has multiple Authors!

Read a book with magic

This is the last audiobook on my tbr! I keep hearing good things about this one and apparently it has magic, so I’m in!

Read a book set in the real world

This one I need to read for a Blog Tour which is happening soon, so I chose it for this challenge! It is set in our world so it fits this challenge!

The Locations?

So, this round I decided to choose a single book/series and use locations from it alone! I put a poll up on Twitter and you guys voted for Harry Potter!

Fantasy JourneyAThon | Reading Challenge Examples

I thought it might be helpful to do up a post of options of books that you could read for each of the challenges. These aren’t recommendations as I haven’t read all of them.

Fantasy JourneyAThon Announcement Post

You are welcome to interpret these challenges as you please. As long as you can explain why the book you choose fits the challenge.

Also all of these options are YA books, of course you are welcome to read Adult & Middle Grade books but the lists would be never ending if I included all books. So YA narrows it down a bit for me. Also I’m more familiar with YA books, so it’s easy to know what fits the challenges.

I also won’t bother explaining every book in every subject unless I think it needs it.

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

Blood on the Cover

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

This is a challenge that has many ways to interpret it. You can choose a book with a ♥️ or a human heart. You can choose a book with a ♦️ or a 💎. Or a book with ‘Heart’, ‘Diamond’, ‘Spade’ or ‘Club’ in the title.

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

Cabeswater – Read a book that involves a King 

Hogwarts – Read a book that is set in a Magical School

Well that is all the Challenges! If you have any recommendations, please put them in the comments so others can get some inspiration on what to read.

What are you most looking forward to reading during Fantasy JourneyAThon?!
