This month I have a few books that are high on my priority list and then I have the rest of the books on my physical TBR that I really want to get through as well! I don’t have a lot of plans for June so hopefully I will have a great reading month!!

Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I’ve had a lot of fun doing small little readathon’s throughout the last couple of months so when I seen that Thoughts from Tomes on Youtube was hosting another round of the Tome Topple I decided I had to participate. The Tome Topple Readathon will be taking place from midnight in your time zone on May 9th to 11:59pm in your time zone on May 22nd. I have seen this readathon floating around Booktube for a while now and I have quite a lot of big books on my TBR so I figure this was a great way to finally get around to reading a few of them. I definitely won’t be completing all of these books but I am hoping I’ll be able to either become a Scholar or a Sage!

Soooo I have made the last minute decision to participate in the Stay Home Reading Rush which started today and finishes on Sunday 19th April. I participated in the Reading Rush last year and had a lot of fun, so I figured why not encourage people to stay home, socially isolate yourself and read all weekend!!!

For April I decided to take part in the O.W.L.S Magical Readathon hosted by Book Roast on Youtube, for any information regarding the readathon see her announcement video HERE. I’m not 100% sure what my career is going to be so I am going to try and complete all of the prompts for this round and then when it comes to the N.E.W.T.S I will announce which career path I choose in that TBR!
The prompts & my tentative TBR for the OWLS include:
Heart rune: heart on the cover or in the title
Magical Qualities of number 2: balance/opposites – read something outside your favourite genre
Night Classes: read majority of this book when it’s dark outside
Hippogriffs: creature with a beak on the cover
Lumos Maxima: white on the cover
Grindylows: book set at the sea/coast
Third eye: assign numbers to your TBR and use a random number generator to pick your read

Witch hunts: book featuring witches/wizards
Book from a perspective of a muggle (contemporary)
Shrinking solution: book under 150 pages
