Hey guys, happy new year! How’s the new year treating you?
Today I bring to you all my reading plans for this month. First off, I am taking part in not one, not two, but three readathons this month!! Crazy, I know! I have never attempted such a feat before and I have no idea if I will be able to pull it off. The thing is, all three readathons sounded so amazing, and I couldn’t even imagine dropping any one of them. Okay, now the names of the readathons – Explore-a-thon, Among Us Readathon, and Medieval-a-thon. Go check them out on Twitter!
Believe me, it was HARD work creating a TBR to fit in the prompts of two readathons, and then I found Medieval-a-thon, and I really really wanted to take part, but I most definitely did not want to start over from my TBR again, so I have decided I will read the books according Explore-a-thon and Among Us Readathon, and then somehow try to fit them with Medieval-a-thon. Also, Medieval-a-thon takes place from 10th January to 10th February, while the other two are from 1st-31st January, this is another reason I still haven’t decided my ‘profession’ for Medieval-a-thon, and will just go along whatever I read.
Without further ado, let’s dive into my TBR!

In this extra special installment of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, the story picks up right from Legacy’s particularly devastating cliffhanger. But chapters alternate between Sophie and Keefe’s perspectives to give readers deeper insights into both beloved characters. New powers will be discovered. Hard truths from the past will come to light. And all of your favorite characters will find themselves tested in ways they never imagined.
OMG, this got delivered today (January 1st), and I am soooo excited!
The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare
All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacation—a lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke.
Now Magnus and Alec must race across Europe to track down the Crimson Hand before the cult can cause any more damage. Demons are now dogging their every step, and it is becoming harder to tell friend from foe. As their quest for answers becomes increasingly dire, Magnus and Alec will have to trust each other more than ever—even if it means revealing the secrets they’ve both been keeping.
The Reader by Traci Chee
Sefia knows what it means to survive. After her father is brutally murdered, she flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped, leaving Sefia completely alone, none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin’s been taken, or if she’s even alive. The only clue to both her aunt’s disappearance and her father’s murder is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book—a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the help of this book, and the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and find out what really happened the day her father was killed—and punish the people responsible.

I know you might be surprised seeing this on my TBR. I give these old comics of mine a re-read from time to time, and a class for Explore-a-thon required me to read a comic, so I though, why not?
These are the five books on my TBR. I have included synopses as well, so if any catch your attention, do make sure to add them to your TBR as well!
Now for my BuJo spreads. I am making three different spreads for the three readathons, but I am still working on Medieval-a-thon because I still have a some more days till it starts. Right now I am sharing the spreads of Explore-a-thon and Among Us Readathon.
That was it for this post! I would love to know your thoughts on these books if you’ve read any of them, and whether you’re taking part in any read-a-thons this month!
