Mythothon Round 4 Wrap-Up

I did draft a TBR, but forgot about it (anyone else suck at keeping their blog up to date? – no, just me? haha *facepalm*) – so here is a wrap-up instead!

Mythothon is hosted by Foxes and Fairy Tales – and it has been a joy to be a part of! I simply could not resist joining in, especially as this round was Arthurian inspired!! Thank you so much Louise for organising and hosting!

As a little background, there were three teams to choose from, I chose the team Morgan le Fay, and then prompts for Arthur and his knights. Once all prompts are completed for the knights of the round table, you can take on Camelot. And as a group we read Legendborn.

I did my best not to double up (although it is allowed, and by the end I knew I wouldn’t ever finish it without doing so haha) and to stick to reading mythological based books (but it doesn’t have to be – just they’re something I love and never read anough of).

Morgan le Fay

Read a story about a villainous, misunderstood or morally grey character.

I picked up Circe by Madeline Miller for my team prompt. I’ve put it off for years, so it was the perfect excuse to finally dive on in – and seriously, why have I put it off!! It’s a retelling of the life of the Greek Goddess, Circe – one of the first witches. I loved this book and fell completely in love with her. I gave it 5 stars.

King Arthur

Read a book featuring royalty.

Sir Percival

(the original hero in the quest for the Grail) — Read a book with a shiny cover.

Sir Kay

(Arthur’s foster brother) — Read a book with a significant sibling relationship.

This was the last book I finished, so I made sure it fit a few prompts haha – but I finally picked up A Vow So Bold and Deadly by Brigid Kemmerer. I loved the ending, but the rest just needed some more action for me – it was very relationship based. 3 stars.

Sir Lancelot 

(Arthur’s greatest companion) Read a book from a favourite author.

For favourite author I decided I needed something quick, and what is better than a graphic novel for quick? Heartstopper Vol 2 by Alice Oseman was a delight! I love Nick and Charlie so much! 5 stars.

Sir Gawain

(Known as the Green Knight) — Read a book with the colour green on the cover or in the title.

Sir Tristan

(falls in love with Isolde) — Read a book with a romance that should be legendary.

Attempting to get in a few mythology based books – I picked up A Prince of Troy by Lindsay Clarke. It follows the lead up events to the Trojan war, and was very interesting – but lacked charm after reading Circe. 3 stars.

Sir Bors

(Arthur’s successor) — Read a sequel. 

At long last I read Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. It’s been over a year since I read Cinder, and gosh did I love this one so much more! 4.5 stars.

Sir Gareth

(the youngest knight) — Read a recent addition to your TBR.

Lore by Alexandra Bracken had only just come on my radar, and it’s a mythology inspired book set in the 21st Century, so great for breaking up all the historical I’ve been reading. I really enjoyed the story and fell in love with the characters. A perfectly rounded up standalone. 4 stars.

Sir Bedivere

(returns Excalibur to Nimue) — Read a book with something pointy on the cover.

I’ve owned Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy for a while now. What better time to read it than an Arthurian inspired readathon! It’s full of fun, and the end is very good. 3 stars.

Sir Galahad 

(“the most perfect of all knights”) — Read a book with a title that starts with a “G”.

Sir Lamorak

(one of the best knights but overlooked in the chivalric romance genre) — Read a book you think is under-hyped.

I listened to Godblind by Anna Stephens for these prompts, and I think listening to the audiobook hampered my enjoyment. I’m definitely giving this one another go sometime. 3 stars.

Sir Gaheris 

(“the least well spoken of all his peers”) — Listen to an audiobook or read part of a story aloud. 

And as something light-hearted after Godblind, I listened to Hetty’s Farmhouse Bakery by Cathy Bramley. I was surprised to find it didn’t take place in the same village as the others I’ve read so far, so missed some of my beloved characters – but really enjoyed the story. 4 stars.


Read a book set in a place you’ve never visited. 

Pretty much any of the books I read fit this prompt – so I’ll just leave it here 😂

Group Book

Legendborn, Tracy Deonn

This book was incredible! If you haven’t read it yet, you need to! I loved how the Arthurian Legend was slotted into the story, and the dark academia vibes. 5 stars.

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
