K-Pop Readathon: Round-Up

I can’t believe it’s only been a month since I posted my TBR for this readathon. I’ve been on a journey, guys. Last month I was firmly on the BTS bandwagon and open to listening to other groups. Now I have three different K-Pop playlists on Spotify with over 20 hours of music across them. I fell HARD into a K-Pop hole and honestly, it’s the only thing keeping me sane during this pandemic.

OWLs Magical Readathon 2020: Round-Up

It feels like years since I wrote up my TBR for this year’s OWLs Magical Readathon, where I said I hoped I could read the five books I needed to get started on the Librarian career. Three weeks into April and I’d completed every prompt, even the additional one for the Dragon Tamer side-class. I read a lot in March, though it certainly helped that some of the books I chose were on the shorter side – a couple were even short stories – so coupled with the UK lockdown giving me plenty of free time, I’m in a great place to start NEWTs in August, and can go for any career I like now!

Magical Readathon: Winter Edition – Part V

We’re in the last few days of 2019 and with that comes the final part of the Magical Readathon: Winter Edition! Since the completing the previous chapter last week I’ve changed my book choice. The prompt was to read a book written by an author whose surname begins with either T, M, or R. I was going to read The Last Day by Andrew Hunter Murray but instead decided to pick up A Life’s Music by Andreï Makine. I’m looking forward to getting my last prompt(s) so let’s get right to it!

Magical Readathon: Winter Edition – Part II

The second Sunday of December has been and gone so that means Chapter 2 of the Magical Readathon: Winter Edition is open! I finished my only read for Chapter 1 on Saturday and I’m ready for my next prompt! I didn’t get to go through the door for Chapter 2 until Monday evening as I went to visit magical Oxford where there was plenty of Harry Potter merchandise in almost every gift shop given that some scenes were filmed there.
