My PhilMyth Readathon Wrap-Up
I decided to join the PhilMyth Readathon this year, and I posted my TBR list a couple of weeks ago. I’m really happy to say that I manage to complete all 7 prompts for this readathon! Although I had to change 2 titles from my original list – namely Sweet & Bitter Magic by Adrienne Tooley and Burning Roses by S.L. Huang – I didn’t regret the selection of books I’ve managed to finish before the readathon ended yesterday. I’ve managed to discover a couple of new favorites and authors that I want to check out their other works.
I have already posted the full length reviews of The Poet X, Kingdom of the Wicked, and Sweet & Bitter Magic already, and I’ll be posting the other ones on my blog soon! I’m just now patiently waiting for the final badges to be awarded.
Aside from continuing on my reread of King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo, I’m now currently 35% in of Sword of Kaigen by M.L. Wang – a fantasy stand-alone that a couple of my friends have highly recommended to me, and I’m really enjoying it so far. I’ve also been tackling my Netgalley TBR and review requests, so I’ve finally started Birds of Paradise and Like Cats and Dogs. My currently reading shelf is in shambles because the mood-reader in me couldn’t settle in on just one book.
Planning to read?
The only book that I’m really eyeing to read sometime this month is hopefully The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S. Villoso. I recently asked my Bookstagram followers which of the two Filipino-authored fantasy books should I read first – The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco or The Wolf of Oren-Yaro. Majority voted for The Bone Witch, but I’ve been leaning more towards K.S. Villoso’s book. I’ll still read The Bone Witch, though!
How have you been doing lately?

Both Oren-Yaro and The Bone Witch are great!! The last book for The Chronicles of the Bitch Queen will be out next month, so maybe it’s an ideal time to start with the trilogy 😁 Congrats on the Bathala badge!
