August 2021 Reading Plans : Another Month of Readathons


august 2021 books reading lailiving

Hello friends!

It’s August already! A new stack of book is waiting for me to read (not all of them are new books added to my TBR list though). This month, I decided to participate in some readathons, and I think my reading plans are getting more ambitious as I add new readathon to join in. On August, I’m participating in Merlin Readathon, Pixarathon, Disney Readathon, and Enneagram Readathon. Okay, maybe I lost my mind when I chose them all but there is fun side to know the prompts for each team you are in. Beside, I added 3 more books to my August reading plans by drawing tarot cards (even though Tarot Readathon has been over – I’m still using their prompts since I want to try them all).


1. Merlin Readathon

This readathon runs on August 1 – August 15 by choosing 4 books for each path we get through. It’s interesting, because the book prompt we get will be determined by the path we decided to choose. Here I have chosen 4 books from the path of Apprentice to Mage :

a. Read an author debut

After/Math by Emily Barth Isler

b. Read a book with map

Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon

c. Read a book featuring friendship

My Cat Called Red by Jane Lightbourne

d. Read a five star prediction

2. Pixarathon

Pixarathon is a Pixar inspired readathon which uses Pixar movies as prompts. There are some routes you can choose (or you can choose all the routes) based on the movie genres. Here I chose the Monster Route, because my very recent watched Pixar movie is Luca. This readathon runs the whole month of August.

a. ONWARD : A book featuring puzzle or mystery

Witching Moon by K.E Bonner

3. Disney Readathon

This is another readathon held on the whole month of August. As you can see from the title, this readathon is inspired by Disney movies. This time, we have 4 teams to choose which are Pocahontas, Enchanted, Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent. You can take this quiz to determine your team. Each team has group books to read along with the prompts. This time, I’m in Alice in Wonderland team. So here are the books I’m going to read for August :

a. ALICE : A book with an adventure
The Reader by Traci Chee

By seeing this reading plan, I know, I’m a bit more ambitious this month. It may be due to the fiery month! Leo season is blazing us with the fire!

Or do you have a favorite book to recommend which can fulfill one of the prompts here? Tell me down below. Okay, thank you for reading this blog post, I’m going to post my July reading wrap up next.
