G @BookRoast is an incredibly talented human being, and I’m appalled by the amount of detail and work that went into this read-a-thon. I was so not planning to throw myself into yet another read-a-thon this year, but after watching the Announcement video that went live at the beginning of this week, I couldn’t resist the temptation to Save Ginny and spend the most magical month of the year in Hogwarts!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please watch this Announcement video by BookRoast and join in on the fun!
To summarize my August reading experience let’s just say that I did EVERYTHING, including writing reviews (Crazy! I know!), except reading books I carefully picked for my NEWTs TBR. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Was I expecting this to happen?
Honestly, after such a great experience of the reading rush read-a-thon, I thought I’d be able to read tons of books in August – the ones on my TBR and the ones that didn’t make it to my NEWTs TBR. I’m slightly disappointed with myself, but I don’t think I could have forced myself to read more.
I hope you all had a very productive July and enjoyed the Reading Rush readathon! The Reading Rush, formerly Booktube-a-thon, is by far one of my favorite read-a-thons. I love how big the reading community is, how many events happen in just one week and the need to push myself to read just a little bit more to complete all the challenges!
This one week of intensive reading got me out of the reading slump and made me excited again about picking up new books. So my August goals might seem too ambitious but I’m going to try and read as much as I can.
1 – Each subject has three grades: A (Acceptable), E (Exceeded Expectations) and O (Outstanding); 2 – Each A unlocks a possibility to gain an E; 3 – Thus, in order to achieve O (Outstanding) you first must earn an A and an E, in that particular order. 4 – The cross-over or doubling up on reads is not allowed!
