My goal was to follow an Auror career, which required me to complete a total of 5 OWLs: Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, Potions, and Transfiguration. Out of 5 books that I initially planned to read, I only read 2, but I’m sure that other books could potentially fit in with the prompt as well. (Check my initial TBR list here!)Continue reading “OWLs Read-a-Thon | Wrap Up”
Whenever I write these posts, I try to answer several questions: What do I want to achieve next month? What do I need to work on? What steps will bring me closer to my goal?
Usually, the answers would be to STAY PRODUCTIVE! MOVE FORWARD! and everything with a similar vibe. But April will be slightly different. Of course, there are still books to read and blog posts to write; but my intention is to take is easy.Continue reading “April 2019 Goals | ARCs, Reviews and Read-a-Thons!”
That’s right! The most exciting Read-a-Thon for all Harry Potter fans is starting on the 1st of April. Have you chosen the career to pursue this year?
Created by Book Roast, this is a magical read-a-thon inspired by the first Hogwarts exams – OWLs (Ordinary Wizarding Level). You don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to join in. You may join just for the sake of the challenge! But if you ARE Harry Potter fan, this is going to be a year long read-a-thon with a lot of fun challenges along the way.
Make sure to check out Book Roast’s video and download the Wizarding Career Leaflet!Continue reading “OWLs Read-a-Thon | My 2019 wizarding career!”
For the last two years I’ve been following closely the Women’s Prize for Fiction, especially the announcements of Long- and Shortlists. But this will be my first time attempting to read some of the nominated titles.
A new set 16 books have been carefully picked for the longlist of Women’s Prize for Fiction. Don’t think that I will be able to read all of them until the winner is announced on June 5th, 2019, but there are a few that definitely sparked my interest.Continue reading “Women’s Prize for Fiction 2019 | What books will I add to my TBR?”
What is blogging if not sharing your thoughts, interests and obsessions with others? That is exactly what I am going to do!
Firstly, I’ve been toying around with the idea of starting a Bullet Journal for quite a long time. I don’t want it as a planner though, rather to keep all my thoughts and ideas in one place. Maybe even to track some habits or blogging stats. Continue reading “September TBR | Hot Air Balloon, The Walking Dead & Reading Goals”
I was battling between the ideas of including this post in my July wrap up or writing a separate dedicated post just for the read-a-thon, and as my first ever reading event, I decided that it deserved its own well rounded conclusion!
I DID IT! I MANAGED TO COMPLETE ALL OF THE CHALLENGES!
It was a very intense reading week, as I usually don’t read that much, but it feels good to overcome my reading slump that haunted me from the beginning of July and actually make some progress through my TBR pile. Continue reading “Booktube-a-Thon 2017 | I did it! Completed challenges and wrap up!”
It has been a while since my last update, but I’ve been keeping good pace and reading those classics as planned! Also I couldn’t be happier with my printable and have been using it since January to track my progress. Continue reading “Classic-a-Month | Reading challenge Update!”
I am sure you all have heard of Booktube-A-Thon and seen a lot of announcement videos about it on YouTube. Obviously, I don’t make YouTube videos, but I would love to join the reading challenges.
Booktube-A-Thon will start on the 24th and end on the 30th of July, and even though I will have my usual work schedule, I have faith in my reading abilities to complete all of the challenges (maybe except the last one…).
