You know me, I love a good readathon. I also love readathons based on other things I enjoy. Harry Potter, Avatar the Last Airbender and now, Legend of Zelda! I don’t know how I found out about this readathon (possibly through Twitter) but I immediately started looking for books to read.
The Link to the Past readathon, created by KateADale on twitter, is a readathon based on the Legend of Zelda games. You are assigned a team (you can do the quiz on the official page) and with your team you try to get through as many of the dungeons as you can. Each team has a weakness and a strength.
I myself ended up in team Kakariko, so my weakness is that I have to complete two books for my first weapon. Then again, my strength is that I can start the readathon three days early, or end it three days later (due to me not remembering when the readathon started, I will be ending it three days later).
There is a book you need to read for your team and some books for your weapons. And then it’s off to the first dungeon! In this post I will share my entire TBR with you.
Home is where the heart is. In the quiet village of Kakariko the inhabitants go about their daily chores, getting their work done and repeating on a rinse like cycle. Read a book with a building on the cover

Lantern – A light read. Pick a book that is less than 150 pages

Of course, knowing me, I will change up some things as I go along, but I hope to read at least a majority of these books. I have plenty of audio books as well, and two months to finish all this so I think I can do it!
