O.W.Ls Readathon 2019 | Update

Hello witches, wizards, muggles, and trolls! OWLs Readathon 2019 is running through the whole of April (check out my sign up post here), so I thought I would do a quick revision update to see how I have been getting on with each exam assignment now as we are a third of the way through the month.

I am still completely undecided on my career path. Well, not, that’s not entirely true, I have narrowed it down, but Curse Breaker and Department of Mysteries worker are still both drawing me in, so for now, I am still working to complete these two. Realistically, I also wanted to obtain Outstanding in my OWLs which meant completing 9 exam topics, so I opted to focus on the subjects I needed for the career paths I am interested in, and then filled in the topics I also really wanted to read for too.

I’ve had a great month/readathon so far! Last year, I caught this readathon just after it had started and unfortunately was in a reading slump so didn’t feel like I made the most of it. I was determined to do it properly this year, and have read a decent amount so far, got through a few topics, and most importantly, I am enjoying what I am reading!!!

Christmas Cosy Reading Night TBR

It’s officially only 6 days to Christmas, which means a week from today it will be Boxing Day and I HAVE FINISHED WORK UNTIL NEW YEAR’S EVE. Can you tell I am excited? It’s the middle of the week though, and others are still only just getting over hump day, so, I am low key celebrating in the best way – in my comfies, on the couch, with a table full of snacks, reading unabashedly for 3hrs because it’s Christmas Cosy Reading night!

N.E.W.Ts Readathon | Wrap

Hello there Witches and Wizards! It’s results day for those Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests that were sat in August, and I’m kind of whelmed at my success. The NEWTs Readathon was a really great thing to be a part of, I met nee internet friends and read quite a few of the books that have been sat on my TBR pile for a long time. I largely stuck to the TBR that I set out at the beginning of the readathon, and found that participating in The Full Monte and Bout of Books help me finish some of these titles. I really wanted to try and get Exceeds Expectations in everything, but as the month went by in a flurry of work activity and holiday planning, it became obvious that was an unrealistic goal, and I didn’t even quite manage to get an acceptable in everything (damn you Shadowblack for not being engaging!).
