Tome Topple Wrap Up

This wasn’t my most read couple of weeks during the Tome Topple. I had family visiting and I moved so there wasn’t really a lot of time for me just to dedicate to reading! However, I did manage to complete 4 books during this round of the Tome Topple and I ended up ticking off most of the prompts which makes me a Scholar!! The only prompt I didn’t really get to was to read an audio-book tome, I don’t like audio-books so I just skipped this one!

✨OWL’s Magical Readathon Wrap Up✨

I had a fantastic reading month in April! I managed to complete all of the prompts for the OWL’s Magical Readathon and I have settled on a career! I have decided to be an overachiever and attempt to become an Alchemist, but just in case I’m also going to have a back up career as a Spell Maker. I had so much fun choosing books to fit the prompts over the course of the month and I am very much looking forward to the NEWT’s later on in the year!!

April Wrap Up

For some reason I have had the best reading month of my life! I know at this time a lot of people haven’t been able to focus on reading with everything happening in the world but it has really become an escape for me. This month I have never felt the need to take a break from reading or had to force myself to pick up a book, it’s been quite lovely actually. I ended up participating in two readathons this month the Smutathon hosted by Riley Marie on YouTube and I completed the OWL’s Magical Readathon which I will post a separate wrap up for tomorrow!

Stay Home Reading Rush Wrap Up

I didn’t quite manage to finish all of the books on my TBR and did end up reading a book that didn’t fit any of the prompts, but I figure I went with the spirit of the readathon and just stayed inside all weekend and read a few books that I actually ended up really enjoying!

The first book I completed was Harry Potter and the Philosphoer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling! This kind of fit the prompt of read a book set somewhere you wish you could go, because like who wouldn’t want to visit Hogwarts?! 

3._SY475_

The next book I completed was The Last Town by Blake Crouch. Purely because I had just marathoned the first two books in this series and wanted to continue on with the last book as soon as possible. This doesn’t fit any of the prompts but I did really enjoy the book!

And then the last book I didn’t actually end up finishing during the readathon I only got about half way through and that is Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. This was going to be for the prompt read a book in the same room the whole time which I did end up doing, unfortunately didn’t enjoy this story as much as I hoped I would!

March Wrap Up

I’ve had a great reading month in terms of getting through my TBR. I managed to complete a series I have been reading for over a year now and completed a couple of books from my physical TBR that I’ve owned now for over 2 years. I feel like I’ve definitely got my reading groove back and I am excited to continue and hopefully read some great books!
