Middle-Earth-a-Thon Announcement // Team Hobbit Prompts πŸŒΏ

Hello there my fellow hobbits, elves, dwarves, witch kings, and men!

I am so excited to be announcing a week-long readathon, set in the LotR world – MiddleEarth-a-Thon! It will take place from Friday 26th August to Friday 2nd September.

We’ll have livestreams with reading sprints, a quiz, and twitter takeovers by each of the hosts throughout the week. There will also be a tracker where we can all record the books we’ve read – and although we’re not making it a competition between the teams, you will also be able to view the stats (if you’re into that like me ahaha, I am a total nerd) on our central tracker, that will also have all the details of the readathon.


The marvellous Lizzie @LizzieIsElf is our glorious leader and creator of the readathon and will oversee the whole of the readathon as Tom Bombadil. There are five teams to choose from:

Team Dwarf, led by Abi @AbiOfPellinor

Team Elf, led by Imena @ImenaGinac

Team Hobbit, led by myself, Hannah @TheBookwormsFeast

Team Men, led by Dani @BookishDani

Team Witch King, led by Hannah @LadetteM

You can tell us which team you’ve joined here.

As the leader of Team Hobbit, I have the honour of telling you all about our prompts and special power below – I’ll also link to the other teams’ announcement videos so you can check out their prompts.


Team Hobbit Power and Prompts

As a Hobbit, you have the power to read one book for all three prompts – and our prompts are:

Big shoes to fill // A book endorsed by an author you like

You know those comments on the front or back of books – sometimes on the inside of the dust jacket. Well, if there is one by an author you enjoy, it counts!

Second breakfast // Something edible depicted on the cover

So long as you’d eat or drink it, it counts! A little later on, I will have some recommendations for books with food or drink on the cover to help out.

Discovered treasure // A new to me author

Read a book by an author you’ve not read before.

I’ve also finally branched into YouTube, here is my announcement video (it is full of nervous laughter and some badly edited out “ums”, and copious fidgeting – but it’s a start!)


I hope you’re as excited as I am – I am finally going to read the Lord of the Rings trilogy, especially in preparation haha! I adored The Hobbit.

Have you read any good books with food or drink on the cover, that you think I should include in my recommendations?
