July Reads, Part 2

Previously: Part 1. For the first time in quite a few months, I managed to finish my monthly TBR, which I am pretty damn stoked about. The only outstanding books I currently have are all preorders that arrived during the summer, and I’ve even caught up on some other goals that I did not expect. […]

O.W.L.s Late Readathon Wrap-up

Firstly, here is the TBR. My intention was to rush to complete the O.W.L.s that everyone else smartly completed in April so that I could participate in the N.E.W.T.s next month.

O.W.L.s Late Readathon TBR

I know what you’re thinking–um, weren’t the O.W.L.s three months ago in April? YES. But I missed sitting for them for whatever reason (I honestly can’t remember if I even had a good reason because I was so interested in everyone’s TBRs), and so I’ve decided to sit them in the last two weeks of […]
