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!!!

24 in 48 Readathon | Updates

Hello there, and welcome to Liz’s late but made it updates post for January 2019’s 24 in 48 readathon. I signed up yesterday and was absolutely going to post early this morning, but if I am honest I got completely distracted by reading, and that’s the point of this whole thing so I am trying to not let it annoy me too much. I’ve added my goals and TBR to the post too, to remind me/us of what I said I wanted to do and to tick things off as I go! Continue reading “24 in 48 Readathon | Updates”

Bout of Books 24: Day 5

You guys I’m tired. It’s supposed to be the end of the week, but I don’t have that Thank God It’s Friday feeling because my next day off is actually next Thursday. I know it’s my own fault, shift swaps and what not, but its leaving me with no energy left to read. That’s it, enough moaning, onwards and upwards now as I have had my mini rant. We have 3 days left of this readathon, let’s see how much we can all read.

Bout of Books 24: Day 3

Today is a much needed and hugely appreciated day off from work, and even though there is lots to do around the house, I think I am going to try and have a bit of a relaxing day, because once today has gone, I don’t have another day off until next Thursday. I am really enjoying the actual reading in Bout of Books 24. I have been so busy with work that I must confess that I haven’t done as much chatting and socialising with you all yet, but I am loving what I am reading and I really enjoyed the sprinting last night. I am thinking about doing some more this afternoon, would you be up for that?
