OWLs – Week 3 update

Ok so I am writing this post pretty early so this is basically my update for Monday to Sunday morning. There will definitely be more progress tonight but I guess you will just have to wait till the final wrap up to see how I go.

This week has definitely been a better week, thanks to allowing myself to listen to Scrappy Little Nobody aaa an audiobooks. Don’t get me wrong I really like audiobooks but I then to use them as a reread as I tend to tune out and I don’t retain the book as well. Although I definitely recommend this as an audio as Anna Kendrick reads it herself.

So here is the updated list of books and my progress:

Charms – Fairest by Marissa Meyer – 100%
Defense Against the Dark Arts – Don’t Judge a Girl by her Cover by Ally Carter – 100%
Herbology – Winter by Marissa Meyer – 100%
Muggle Studies – Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick 100%
Astronomy – Stars Above by Marissa Meyer 100%
Transfiguration – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling – 50%
Ancient Runes – Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo – 10%
Arithmacy – One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

Potions – The Silver Mask by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Care of Magical Creatures – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling
History of Magic – Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
Divination – The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

Happy Reading

So a few years ago I could have answered this without any issues as I never re-read books, however as I got older and read more I have found myself going back to books. I have noticed a reoccurring theme of the books that I don’t re-read is that they tend to be stand-alone books.

Disclaimer – these are listed as I feel right at this moment and as any good book lover is subject to change.

10 Escaped by Carolyn Jessop

9 Sickened by Julie Gregory

8 Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

7 Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer

6 We Should Hang out Sometime by Josh Sundquist

5 We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

4 Mao’s Last Dancer by Li Cunxin

3 Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle

2 The Fault in the Stars by John Green

1  The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

Happy Reading

I can’t believe the first week of the OWLs is already over. I definitely didn’t read as much as i would have liked and I am going to have to step it up if I want to pass all of my OWLs.

So as I predicted on the first day of the exams I decided that I was going to change my books slightly.

So here is the updated list of books and my progress:

Charms – Fairest by Marissa Meyer – 100%
Ancient Runes – Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo – 10%

Defense Against the Dark Arts – Don’t Judge a Girl by her Cover by Ally Carter
Potions – The Silver Mask by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Care of Magical Creatures – The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Transfiguration – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling
History of Magic – A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Divination – The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan
Herbology – Winter by Marissa Meyer
Astronomy – Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
Arithmacy – One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
Muggle Studies – Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

So according to my calculations I need to read 195 pages for the remaining days in order to complete all of my OWLs. I am really busy this week as I have a dance competition in Sydney but hopefully I can get a bit of reading done on the flight and backstage.

Happy Reading
