🏴‍☠️ Scallywagathon 🏴‍☠️

When I came across the announcement video for the Scallywagathon I couldn’t help but want to participate so here I am lol… As usual I will be picking a book to correspond to each prompt and depending on which path I choose I will inevitably end up with four books that I should complete. I’m not going to pressure myself to finish them all though, it’s just about participating and promoting a fun readathon! For any information please check out their website HERE!

August TBR

This month I decided I would go back to doing an actual TBR instead of my usual mood reading. I have quite a few library books loaned out that I haven’t had a chance to get to yet, so I though for August I could prioritise them! As somewhat of a completionist I do kind of want to attempt to complete the NEWTS this month quietly as well. And then if I have time after I finish all of those I will definitely be picking books out of my physical TBR which I will also list below.
