I was kindly asked by Hannah at the YouTube channel Hannah Blackwell to co-host the second round of Once Upon a Readathon! I am co-captaining Team Djinn with the lovely Daphne from BeingDaphne. I will have a lot of recommendation posts coming your way throughout May in preparation for the readathon which takes place the entire month of June!
This is a team-based readathon but it is low pressure. The best thing about this readathon is that it really encourages mood reading. You get 100 points for your team for every book you read. It doesn’t matter the genre or if it fits the theme of the readathon. There are ways to get bonus points, including reading a BIPOC or LGBTQIA book and reading a book that features your team mascot. You can also attack another team by reading a book that features their mascot. Though every team has an allied team who they cannot attack!
There are four teams- Team Djinn (the best team!), Team Dragon (allied with Team Djinn), Team Merfolk, and Team Pirates (allied with Tram Merfolk).
There is a Discord where you can chat with your teammates and your enemies, get book recommendations, join buddy reads, and more! It is already getting competitive, so click here to join in the fun.
There is merch! I personally bought this adorable pink t-shirt, but there are a lot of great options!
I think that is all you need to know for now! I will continue to talk about the readathon throughout May and would love if you joined us. Let me know if you have any questions!
