Magical Readathon: O.W.L. Edition – Update Post

The other day I posted about joining the Magical Readathon: O.W.L. Edition here, a readathon and Harry Potter inspired challenge created and hosted by Book Roast back in April. I’m late to the party, but that doesn’t mean I’m any less excited; especially since I’m planning to do the N.E.W.T.s either next month or in October as well!

I’ve decided to do a separate update post so I can track my progress in one place… I’ve still not decided on my fictional career after Hogwarts, but since I’m a Ravenclaw all knowledge is welcome I guess. 😉 I’m planning on passing at least eight O.W.L.s out of the twelve, so I can pick my N.E.W.T.s more freely in the next challenge.

Since the original readathon went from April 2nd till April 29th, only books finished between August 2nd and August 29th will count for this challenge.

My TBR for the readathon (some of the titles might be changed later on; for Charms I was originally going to read Hero At The Fall, but I saw that I needed it for a N.E.W.T. so I’m saving it for next month). Those that are check-marked I have managed to pass already.

Day 6 of the Bout Of Books 16.0 was another great day and I made it both to the 2.000 page mark and 6 finished books! Yay! This has definitely been a very successful read-a-thon so far.

Bout Of Books 16.0 – Day 5 Update

boutofbooks16

Day 5 of the Bout Of Books 16.0 was excellent and I managed to finish two more titles! 5 books in 5 days was definitely way more than I was expecting… Sure, The Reader On The 6.27 was a short (but really good) read and I skipped a few short stories I already read in Stars Above, but still…

Bout Of Books 16.0 – Day 4 Update

boutofbooks16

Day 4 of the Bout Of Books 16.0 was another great reading day and I managed to finish both my third book and I made good progress with Leaving Time (I’m at 68% now). I’ve also started with Stars Above, although I will only be reading those novellas I haven’t read last year… I skipped number two and three (Glitches and The Queen’s Army), so that explains the high page count for that book. 😉
