May TBR

So after having a really busy April and reading so much I have decided that I will take it easy in May and only pick a few books and if I happen to read more then great. So here is the couple of books that I have picked for May:

Obsidio - Amie Kaufman Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Throne of Glass - Sarah J Maas Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

Crown of Midnight - Sarah J Maas Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas

So then the rest (if there are anymore) will be left to how I feel at the time.

happy reading

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.

So because I was either reading or training this month I didn’t get around to completing any reviews or recaps, but I have a few in draft. I am hoping to get myself into a position where I can post one of each a week. Lets see how I go in May.

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
