Good morning my loves!
I hope you’re all doing well today! Okay, so I am PUMPED for this post. For the month of July I have decided to join The Book Junkie Trails readathon! It’s a pretty chill readathon with only 4 prompts per group to read plus the group read if you wish to do so. I’ve taken the personality test and I’ll be teaming up with the Magi! I’ve taken some information from Jenna’s blog. Her post on this readathon has been incredibly helpful to me and I’m sure it’ll be the same for you! I’ve also posted my TBR for you to see what I’m planning on reading for this readathon.
What is The Book Junkie Read-a-Thon?
According to YouTuber Rachael Marie Book Junkie … “The Book Junkie Trials is a Month-long Readathon & Competitive event in July, for all the bookish community, with 2 ways to play via The Quest for The Bookie Grail &/or through the Competitive Championship Trials” [source].
How does The Book Junkie Trial Read-a-Thon work?
There are two ways to join, as mentioned above: The Quest for the Bookie Grail AND/OR the Competitive Championship Trials. You can either participate in both, just the Bookie Grail or just the Championship … it’s completely up to you.
The Quest of the Bookie Grail is a “group based” challenge. In the magical High Queendom, you travel to the destinations based off of your class / quest guide and complete each “quest” — which is a TBR challenge. The four different groups to choose from are: the Bards, the Outlaws, the Magi’s and the Scribes. You can either just CHOOSE a class or take THIS quiz. I took the quiz, which you’ll see my results down below. Each group has its own set of challenges that you’ll need to complete. If you have twitter, make sure to add your classes handle to your name. You will be given micro challenges throughout the month to accumulate points!
The Competitive Championship Challenge is a WHOLE new level of questing! Basically, you read ALL the books on the challenge list rather than just for your group. There is a special prize for those who complete this for the 2020 Read-a-Thon.

My TBR for the readathon
Orc Grove – Some say there is no talking to Orcs, but a good political relationship is needed. Learn some Orc customs by reading a book that is gruesome, gory, or gritty.
The July Girls by Phoebe Locke
Ol’ Pirate Cove – Shiver me timbers. You shall be walking the plank if you don’t learn how to sail better. Read a book that takes place, at least in part, on sea.
The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
Glimmer – This Isle is alight with gems and crystals, one of the most picturesque spots in The High Queendom. Make sure you fit in with a beautiful or colourful book.
The Last Spell Breather by Julie Pike
Draconic Isle – Oh My! This island is swarming with wyverns and dragons. Brush up on your draconic knowledge with a book that features dragons.
A Game of Thrones by George R R Martin
The Bookie Grail – Here you find a lost manuscript, delivered on this forgotten island by a fallen star. Read the group book.
Stardust by Neil Gaiman
