Hello witches, wizards, house-elves and muggles! I am struggling to believe that we are pretty much half way through August, which mean half-way through this round of N.E.W.Ts. I love the versatility of Gi’s readathons and prompts and have got back into the reading groove. I am managing to fit in some ARCs that I have been meaning to read, and I am thinking about books I require for the various year long reading challenges I am participating in and trying to fit books in for those where I can. I have finished some properly brilliant books that have become absolutely favourites.
Hello witches, wizards, house-elves and muggles! August is upon us which means only one thing – the Magical Readathon is back with another N.E.W.Ts edition! I took part in my O.W.Ls back in April and I passed all of my subjects (yay go me) so I had the choice of career path, and therefore reading options going into this readathon. Gi (of The Book Roast) has really gone all out this year to make this the most magical reading experience, and so I had fun choosing a career for O.W.Ls and plan to stay on the right path.

Well well, witches, wizards and Muggles, O.W.Ls 2019 is officially almost over. We’re on the last day, the very last stretch, and I am so pleased with my progress and performance but absolutely gutted that the readathon is over! I can’t believe that this amazing readathon has been going on for a month, I mean, where has that gone eh? I hope you had a great month!
I am very pleased to report that I managed to complete ALL 12 of the OWLs subjects. This was my hope, but not really my aim, as I didn’t need to finish them all to pursue my career of either Curse Breaker of Ministry of Magic worker in the Department of Mysteries. I’ve read some really great books this month, both for this readathon and not, and I am really pleased it has paid off. Check out what I read:
Witches, Wizards, and Muggles, Easter has been, the sun is most definitely shining, and the end of exam season is in sight! I would normally be ecstatic to see the back of exams, but I adore this readathon, so I am kind of disappointed that it’s nearly over already. We still have just over a week left, that’s plenty of time to work towards our exam targets and complete some last minute revision!
I have had a slightly slower middle of the month in April. I have been tackling some longer books, and also been re-reading the Beautiful Bastard series, which sadly doesn’t count for anything in terms of OWLs challenges. I finished the first few challenges really quickly, and have only finished one more since the last check-in. That said, I am definitely further on than I was. I have finished a vital subject, I am over half-way through the final challenge that will secure any of the career paths I am interested in, and I then will only have two challenges left to pursue a full house and finish ALL of the OWLs.
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!!!

It’s that time of year again where we strap on our magical thinking caps and get ‘studying’ for our O.W.Ls. For those of you who have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, the Magical Readathon – O.W.Ls edition is back, and is bigger and better than ever. Based on the Ordinary Wizarding Levels – tests that Hogwarts Students sit in their 5th year of school – the readathon features a series of reading prompts inspired by the school subjects offered at Hogwarts.

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!
