April Wrap Up

April has been a completely hectic month for me and I can not believe I still managed to read so much. This month I had 2 competitions for 2 different apparatuses so most of my afternoons and evenings were taken up with training and then flying to Sydney for the first comp.

The reason why I read so much was because I was completing the Magical Readathon where we had to sit our Hogwarts OWLs (see previous posts for more information) and I am pleased to inform you all that I completed all 12 exams. For me this is a lot of books and I think I might take it a bit easy in May to make up for this, not to mention I have a big list of books to review now.

So onto the wrap up.

  1. Cress by Marissa Meyer (from page 380 – finish)
  2. Fairest by Marissa Meyer

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
