The Breath of the Wild Readathon – Round #1.0: The Main Quest (Vah Rhuta) – My Wrap-Up!

Hi all!

Last month, I shared my TBR for The Breath of the Wild Readathon – Round #1.0: The Main Quest. You can check that out here. Today, I am bringing you my wrap-up! This readathon ran from September 20th – October 20th and in that time, I was challenged to read four different books according to the prompts under Team Mipha. I’m happy to say I completed all of them, which means I took down The Divine Beast: Vah Rhuta. Without further ado, let’s get into it!


1.) The Great Plateau – Read a book outside of your comfort zone.

In my original TBR, I said I was going to read the non-fiction novel: Gogo Mama by Sally Sara. Unfortunately I wasn’t really enjoying it, so I picked up On Writing by Stephen King instead, which still met the original prompt. I really liked it! I’m currently writing my own horror novella, so the tips provided were truly valuable. We get to learn about King’s life, his tragic accident, how he plans/drafts his works and what books he recommends reading. I highly recommend it for authors everywhere.

I gave this 4/5 stars.

2.) Blood Moon Card: Ancient Sword – Re-read a childhood favourite.

I re-read Dark Magick (Book #4) from the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan. It was wonderful and magical as always. It follows teenager Morgan, who discovers she is a witch with incredibly powerful parents. I don’t really have much to say. I love these books. I have since I was a young girl and always will! Highly recommend!

I gave this 5/5 stars.

3.) Wetland Stable – Read a book with gothic vibes.

This is the You’ll Read Too Bookclub’s pick for October, so I won’t say too much, as it will be getting its own dedicated review next month. It follows widow and mother, Kit Capriol, who lost her husband in 9/11. With bills to pay and her daughter stuck in a coma, Kit pretends to be a clairvoyant for money. Unbeknownst to her, she is being investigated for fraud by detectives. Furthermore, her fake seances start to become incredibly real and Kit soon realises she is not as alone as she thought. I enjoyed this story but it did not go in the direction I was expecting. This is definitely more of a thriller novel than a horror. I highly recommend it though. It’s very thought provoking. I will discuss it more next month.

I gave this 4/5 stars.

4.) Zora’s DomainThe Divine Beast: Vah Rhuta – Read a book with sirens/mermaids and a book related to the buzzword: WATER.

I used the Team Mipha perk for The Deep by Alma Katsu, to cover the multiple prompts above. This story follows Annie, who is working as a nurse on the sixth voyage of the Titanic’s sister ship, the Britannic, now refitted as a hospital ship. Plagued by the demons of her doomed first and near fatal journey across the Atlantic, Annie comes across an unconscious soldier she recognises while doing her rounds. However, she is convinced that he did not – could not – have survived the sinking of the Titanic. I’m glad I went into this knowing it was more of a historical fiction romance than a horror novel. If I hadn’t been prepared, I would have been disappointed. The story had multiple timelines, with various interconnecting stories. I enjoyed the twist ending and the voyage (pun intended) it took me on. It wasn’t anything groundbreaking but I enjoyed it.

I gave this 4/5 stars.

I did not complete the optional challenges because I only have so much time in a week to read on top of working and raising a toddler!

I hope you enjoyed this readathon. How did you go? Let me know your wrap-up down below. Thanks for reading!

Peace & Love xoxo
