September Wrap Up

The month started a little flat for me and I wasn’t all that motivated in picking up any of the books from my TBR so I once again got swept into a romance/smutty series that was just an easy, fun, entertaining read for me. However, the last few weeks of the month I actually really got stuck into my TBR and managed to finish a couple of series off! I was overall very happy with the amount I was able to get through!

✨N.E.W.T.S Magical Readathon Wrap Up✨

So there was a little change of plans… I had to swap out a few books from my original TBR, honestly because I wasn’t feeling like reading a few of the books I put on there. However, I did still manage to complete and pass all of my NEWT exams which I am actually super stoked about! I needed an O in Charms and E in Defense Against the Dark Arts and at least 2 A’s in secondary subjects of my choice which equals to 7 books in all that I completed for the NEWTS. 

So the prompts and the books I read for my NEWTs are:

charms copyA: Read a book that has a gorgeous cover

Vow of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson – LOVED it!

34196663

E: Read a comic / manga / graphic novel (or book under 150 pages)

Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker – was super cute and wholesome!

44774415

O: Spongify (softening charm) – read a paperback book

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang – had reservations but I adored it!

39338454

DADA copyA: Book that’s black under the dust jacket

Finale by Stephanie Garber – was a solid ending to this series!

91xyJ8LjggL

E: Gilderoy’s Memory Charm – first book that I remembered just now from my TBR!

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody – I’m going to count this one, just because it’s been on my TBR for AGES now and I finally got around to reading it!

Holy Sister by Mark Lawrence – This was EVERYTHING!!!

July Wrap Up

This month I was in the mood for a little steamy romance/smutty goodness, so I delved a little into that world and enjoyed what I encountered. I think because I was sick for the first few weeks of the month and I got into that weird little reading funk I didn’t want to have to focus too much on what I was reading and just picked something up that was easy and entertaining! Then in the last week of July the Reading Rush readathon was on and I managed to finish 7 books in that week. So overall July started off a little slumpy then as the month progressed I got my groove back and managed to have my best reading month so far this year… 21 books!

Overall Experience:

I had a great experience for the Reading Rush! I didn’t have a whole lot going on this week so I was able to get a good amount of reading in and managed to fit 7 books in 7 days. I read a total of 2734 pages over the course of the week and managed to finish a lot of books that I have been putting off for a while!

⭐️ 5/5 stars for The Reading Rush
