ANNOUNCEMENT: The Royal Readathon Villains Takeover

So back in March/April time, Liv and myself birthed the brain child that is The Royal Readathon and we had so much fun planning May’s The Royal Readathon where we picked prompts based on the different Disney Princesses. Even when planning that one, we knew we wanted to do more and we also tentatively planned a villains themed readathon for October.

We were very ambitious with our Princess readathon and had 14 prompts, but this time we’ve just stuck with 10 prompts. As with before you can double up if needs be and we hope you have have as much fun taking part as we had creating it. So without further ado, here are the prompts and some recommendations for each one…
