    WWW Wednesday – 3 Apr 2019

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday! What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the three following questions: What did you recently finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you’ll read next? So, without further ado, let’s get started! What I recently finished reading… Well, I think my slump is officially over. I haven’t read a huge amount this week, but it did start with…

    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…

    August ’18 wrap-up (OWLs challenge) and September TBR

    PHEW! For the first time in I don’t know how long, I read more books that I got for the month. Basically I think I now deserve a Nobel bookish prize for outstanding contributions to my TBR. Is that a thing? If not, can we make it a thing? August wrap-up – OWLs challenge results! WOOT! I got my OWLs (also known as Ordinary Wizarding Tests) by reading a book or story relating to a prompt for each of the subjects that I was interested in gaining results for! This…

    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…

    July ’18 wrap-up and August TBR

    I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I’m just adding the same books onto my TBR, and then every month I have to admit that I didn’t read them (again), only to add them again for next month. I’m still kind of reading slump-ishly at the moment. Work is killing me, and I’ve been sick, and winter here is so depressing! I can’t wait for the sun to come back… July wrap-up I read more rereads than I normally do this month. This isn’t because I’m running…

    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. 😂…
