So a couple of weeks ago, I posted that I would be taking place in the Ordinary Wizarding Levels read-a-thon challenge for August (even though most people were doing their NEWTs), because I missed out in April!
I also said that I might post an update during the month to show you guys my progress, which is what this post is! So, here’s what I have accomplished so far this month:
Book I thought I would read
Book I actually read
|Ancient Runes||A book with a symbol on the cover||Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody|
|Arithmancy||A book with a number on the cover or in the title||A Thousand Perfect Notes by CG Drews||A Thousand Perfect Notes by CG Drews|
|Astronomy||A science fiction novel||Warcross by Marie Lu||The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams|
|Care of Magical Creatures||A book that has magical creatures in it or on the cover||The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember||To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo|
|Charms||A fantasy book||The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett|
|Defence Against the Dark Arts||A book about secret societies or clubs||The Rook by Daniel O’Malley|
|Divination||A book featuring prophecies||Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend||The Crowns of Croswald by DE Night|
|Herbology||A book with a nature related word in the title||Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch|
|History of Magic||A historical fiction||The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak|
|Muggle Studies||A muggle non-fiction book||Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson|
|Potions||A book about/with alchemy||The Price Guide to the Occult by Leslye Watson||The Price Guide to the Occult by Leslye Watson|
|Transfiguration||A book about transfiguration/shape-shifting or a book with a cat on the cover||Who’s Afraid by Maria Lewis||How (Not) to Kiss a Toad by Elizabeth A Reeves|
Now, while this is where I am currently at, I may move some of these around as they could fit several different categories. For instance, The Crowns of Croswald could actually fit:
- Care of Magical Creatures
- Defence Against the Dark Arts
So, depending on what I read for the rest of the month, I might find something that fits a category better, and then move the ones I have read around to other spots.
But, suffice to say, I think I should hit most of the subjects that I wanted to, as having a challenge to tick books off against is actually making me want to read more! I should do this every month! Maybe I’ll put together a reading bingo for next month, who knows where this could go?!
How is your reading for the month going?
