Its feels like it has been an age since is have taken part in a readathon! I took part in the first round of Make your Myth Taker Readathon many moons ago and when I saw the Path Or Pantheon Round pop up on my Twitter it seemed like it would be fun to take part in, and maybe help me clear my shelves a little.
It is a month long Readathon running through out July and it is fairly simple in its concept. There are a selection of Global Pantheons to choose from with a prompt corresponding to each Deity, or you can select a Path with a mix or Deities around a common theme, again with their own prompts. Each Path or Pantheon has a total of 5 prompts and each has a unique ‘Power’ that can be invoked.
The Choices are:
The Pantheon choices:
So many amazing choices that I have been kind of torn between several paths and Pantheons. I eventually decided that as I can usually read between 10- 15 books a month that I would choose one Path and one Pantheon and try to complete both during the month.
The Path of Wisdom TBR
The Dying Squad
Prompt: Athena – Set in a City
This is a paranormal Police Procedural (we all Know I love them). Where the Officer in Charge is a ghost, investigating his own murder!

I am buddy reading this series with some friends. It is based around a fictional “true crime” podcast so is filled with questionable characters.

One of my most anticipated reads of the year I had to squeeze it into the TBR somewhere. This is billed as a lyrical reimagining of founding of the Ming Dynasty, Where the MC takes on her brother’s destiny. It is also said to be queer!
The Greek Pantheon TBR
A Universe of Wishes
Prompt: Aphrodite – featuring romance
This is a diverse anthology but I do know that it contains a
The Book of Accident
Prompt: Ares – Dark Story
This is a Horror from Chuck Wendig that sounds like it is going to be incredibly creepy.
Prompt: Hestia – Fire on the Cover
I am counting the explosion on the cover as Fire and I really want to read this one. Its build as Golden Girls meets The Expanse!
Six Crimson Cranes
Prompt: Hades – First in a series
This new series from Elizabeth Lim seems like it is going to be right up my street with Dark magic fairytale vibes.
So those are the books I have picked for my Path or Pantheon TBR! I do have a couple more Buddy reads and ARCs that to add on to my TBR so I will post about them in a separate TBR.
