TBR: O.W.L.s Magical Readathon – Year 3

Ah, a readathon of epic fantasy proportions. The premise is to choose a Harry Potter-related career and read books based on the testing requirements to enter that career. How fun is that? The creator goes through an incredible amount of work to set up the O.W.L.s readathon (April 2020) and, in a few months, the N.E.W.T.s readathon. I participated in both last year (trying to become a Curse Breaker) and had a blast. Full information about the readathons can be found at the Magical Readathon Twitter account.

The stats for last month’s books are: Continue reading “Wrap Up: February 2020”

TBR: March of the Mammoths

It’s both a very simple readathon and a very difficult one. There’s only one challenge: read a book with 800+ pages. Whew!

For Round 2 of March of the Mammoths, I’ll be reading:

TBR: Sims-A-Thon

 

Next month I’ll be participating in three (three!) month-long readathons. I’ll be posting my TBRs for all three over the next few days. The first is for Sims-A-Thon Round #3.

The Sims has been in my life since Sims 1 came out in 2000 and is by far the game franchise I’ve spent the most time playing (literally thousands of hours over the years). Naturally I have to participate in a Sims-themed readathon!
