Helloooo fellow book lovers! The title of this post if pretty self explanatory, but, if you don’t know what cosy reading night is then you are in for a bit of a treat my friends! Hosted by the wonderful Lauren and the Books, cosy reading night is an opportunity to sit in a comfy corner, stock up on the snacks, and settle down with a good story. Sounds fabulous am I right? I’ve taken part before and loved it, and I am leaping on the chance to again because I am usually on a late shift at work, so I don’t want to miss this amazing opportunity to make inroads in my N.E.W.Ts Readathon Progress (check out my updates post here)!

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.

Hello, and welcome to the first time I think I am going to abandon a readathon at the half way mark post. The Book Junkie Trials has been going on since the beginning of the month, and I signed up excitedly as a Magi in the hopes of reading and accruing points with my Magi brethren. Unfortunately this readathon really isn’t for me, so, I am going to share why below alongside my update!
Greetings from Russia! Yes, I am on my holiday, but I have my laptop and bookish brain with me and I am signing up to an awesome sounding readathon from here in rainy/cold Moscow. The Book Junkie trials is hosted by the wonderful Rachael Marie Book Junkie who posted a sign up video here and has posted all about the readathon her twitter @TheBookieTrials. It is a month long readathon/competitive reading event starting on July 1st for the whole of the bookish community, and I for one am excited to be taking part!
Evening Westerosi and fellows sims! Welcome to a Round 1 of Games of Books-athon and Sims-a-thon update! This month has gone by really quickly and holiday preparations for Russia next week are now well under way. I am planning on taking things to read on holiday, obviously, I can’t survive without books even while I’m away, but I am conscious that my reading rate may slow down and that I might not want to take some of the Games of Booksathon reads with me as they are heavy longer books.
Both readathons are running simultaneously from June 1st to June 30th, so I have managed to get every read so far to cross off a prompt from each readathon. I am really pleased with my progress so far and have gone from feeling woefully behind to quite on top of things pretty quickly!
Evening Westerosi and fellows sims! Welcome to Round 1 of Games of Books-athon and Sims-a-thon, because yes, you have probably guessed it, I am doing another readathon double header in June. There are so many challenges for the latter one that I have focused my TBR on the Game of books-a-thon prompts in the knowledge that they will probably fit one or more of the challenges in Sims-a-thon.
Thankfully, both are running from June 1st-June 30th, and the challenges overlap, or work for both so I have managed to get books to completely cross over! I have decided to do a combined thread on Twitter which is where I will post updates throughout the readathon.
