The main idea of the Hogwarts House Battle was to read as much as possible – points for pages! You also got additional points for completing prompts, group reads, and more.
Ah, September, where to start? Firstly, I read so little this month! After August’s whopping fifteen books, I only managed three in September – my slowest reading month since February. I read my first book, Crossfire, on the first day, but then it took me over two weeks to finish my second book, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle! Those two weeks went by so fast, I didn’t even realise how little I’d read at first.
Six For Sunday is a weekly blog series created by Steph @ ALittleButALot. As part of September’s Back to School Realness theme, this week’s prompt asks for six books I read during my school years. I tried to recall books from my younger school years as well as from university, to get a broader sense of my academic reading.
I’m back again with another tag that I wasn’t tagged in! In my blogging calendar, today’s post was supposed to be a review of Ann Patchett’s much-acclaimed The Dutch House but… I’m only four chapters in. As a review-preview, it’s fantastic so far, but I’ve just been so unbelievably busy recently that my reading has really suffered. Hopefully I’ll have a review for you next week. Danni @ ForBooksSake posted this tag a while ago and it looked fun, so whilst I’m trying to push through this enforced reading slump, here’s a little look at my Goodreads! Consider yourself tagged if you want to join in.
This week I’m sharing my favourite poetry collections.
Hanne Blank looks at the invention of heterosexuality and what is has meant for society throughout history. Though existing for thousands of years, it wasn’t until the 1860s that heterosexuality first ‘made a name for itself’. Blank examines how the creation of this label has shaped politics, culture, and media, as well as our personal lives.
Happy Sunday everyone! Last month I shared my favourite Harry Potter inspired ambience rooms that I love to listen to whilst reading or drifting off to sleep. Today, I want to open the floor to other environments, because there are so many fantastic creators making the most amazingly detailed ambience rooms.
Years after a tragic accident that claimed the life of their youngest son, the Hardcastles are throwing an extravagant party that reunites all of the guest that were present that fateful day at Blackheath, decades ago. This party will end in another tragedy; the death of their only daughter, Evelyn. But Evelyn won’t die just once. She’ll keep dying, until Aiden, a guest of the Hardcastles, can figure out who kills her. Every day Aiden wakes up in another body, frantically battling the mind of his hosts in order to solve the mystery and escape the hold that Blackheath has over him. If he lives a full day in his eighth and final host without delivering the murderer, he’ll start all over again with no memory of what he’s discovered so far. That’s if he can make it that long. There’s others hunting the killer in Blackheath, and some of them will kill to make sure they escape first.
“The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.” — GlobalAussie
Hi all! I am having an insanely busy month and have barely had time to read anything, I’m real sad about it. As a result, I haven’t posted any reviews this week which is quite unlike me. However, I’ve had this tag sitting in my drafts for a while and as we’re halfway through the Hogwarts House Battle, I thought now would be a great time to do the First Year Hogwarts tag!
