    O.W.L.s read-a-thon TBR 2020

    Good morning book wizards and witches! IT’S O.WL.s TIME AGAIN!!! If you don’t know what O.W.L.s are then… you should read Harry Potter. OR you can watch Gintare’s video on YouTube about it!! But, very basically, Gintare (@BookRoast) runs a bi-annual read-a-thon based on the fifth and seventh year wizarding tests at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. O.W.L.s (Ordinary Wizarding Levels) are the fifth year tests, and in April we read a bunch of books that correspond to prompts the Gintare changes each year. The aim is to pick…

    O.W.L.s read-a-thon wrap-up 2019

    Good morning book wizards and witches! Holy moly! Thank god that’s over. WHYYYYY do I think that signing up for reading challenges is a good idea? I am a MOOD READER. I am BAD at this. Let’s go see what I actually read this month, and then we can discuss how I am NOT *spoiler alert* going to be an Alchemist. If you don’t know about O.W.L.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast‘s video HERE. OWLs TBR…

    O.W.L.s Read-a-thon TBR 2019

    Good morning book wizards and witches! Today I was going to post my book haul for March, but that got pushed back so that I can announce my OWLs read-a-thon TBR! So, if you don’t know about O.W.L.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast‘s video HERE. Careers OK, so I am really undecided on which Wizarding Career I want to aim for with my NEWTs. I mean, obviously there’s some I don’t care for. But Alchemist is…

    Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests Read-a-thon ’18-19

    In August of this year I did my OWLs, and it has taken me this long to recover! However, I’ve been saying for a while now that I would like to do my NEWTs in January, so here we are. Now, if you have zero idea what the hell I’m talk about, please, let me inform you. Gintare over at the Book Roast created an amazing read-a-thon based on the exams in the Harry Potter novels. OWLs are your year 5 exams, or Ordinary Wizarding Levels. NEWTs are your year…

    OWLs read-a-thon challenge progress report

    Hi everyone! 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: Subject Prompt Book I thought I would read Book I actually read Ancient Runes A book with…

    Ordinary Wizarding Levels Read-a-thon ’18

    So, I know this technically happened in April of this year, but I have only just found out about it now that people are doing their NEWT read-a-thon, but in order to do the NEWTs, I have to sit the OWLs, so this is why I’m doing OWLs now, and then I’ll do NEWTs in October (I need a 31 day month for this!!). If you have zero idea what I am talking about, let me start from the beginning. I hear it’s a very good place to start. 😂…
