Favorite genres are Fantasy and Historical Fiction but I have been known to read just about anything.

Progress on my #NEWTs has stalled a bit.....but I am enjoying this one and when I do sit down to read it goes pretty quick.

At 120 pages in the only issue I have right now is that we switch between formal and informal names at an alarming rate (feels like it‘s about every other paragraph or more). Anyone else notice that?

Started this one almost a week ago but I‘m not very far into yet. I am very excited to continue though.

Number 13 complete.

This one is for my Exceeds Expectations in Divination.

One of my childhood books and it‘s still great. I was even able to get my partner to read it to me 😁

It‘s time for the Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test (N.E.W.T.s). I will be aiming to receive and Outstanding in both History of Magic and Divination this time around. I would like to wish my fellow classmates good luck (especially all you Ravenclaws because we all know that‘s the best house lol)

Time for a Check-In

1- I‘ve read 10 of the 24 I‘d like to read.
2- All of the books I‘ve read so far count towards the beat the backlist reading challenge.
3- Most of the books (but not all) were borrowed from someone.
4- My read along of George RR Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire Series has not gone very well as I have only completed book one and am about to be 2 books behind 🙈 (but that‘s ok I‘m still planing to continue)

wordslinger42 Eragon is one of my favorites! Also, I love your Lion King painting! 😊 2mo
BacklistReader @wordslinger42 it‘s one of my favorites too. I‘m currently in the middle of Eldest. 2mo

Very informative read. I enjoyed it. It doesn‘t go super in depth but it is a good starting off point.

I‘m a bit late in posting but this is my #24b4monday wrap-up. Definitely didn‘t get 24 hours of reading in I wasn‘t exactly timing it but I‘d say I got to somewhere around 8. My page count was 50 which is a pretty big chunk.

And another one bites the dust! Loved this one. Already planning to read it again when I can get my hands on the audiobook so I can become even more immersed. Definitely pick this one up if you‘re a fan of Gilmore Girls or of Lauren Graham.

Finished book 8.

A non-Fiction I picked up on my visit to Alcatraz last year. Highly recommend if you‘re interested in an introductory history of the Indian/Anglo American relations.

While I try to get all this work stuff figured out I‘m relaxing and de-stressing in the land of the Abhorsen where the dead walk and plan to take control over the living, or at least that‘s what seems to be happening currently.....

In other news, I changed my username name to one that feels like it fits my reading better.

That‘s another book finished. Only about 3 books behind on my goal. That‘s not to bad. And with not working because of transfer issues maybe I can get caught up a little.....

This is book 2 of the Abhorsen Series by Garth Nix. I did take a break from reading this during my OWLs but I still really enjoyed it. Need to go pick up the next book now....

Great debut novel. Yes a reread but it‘s been so long I didn‘t remember anything except the name of the dragon and maybe one other thing that I will not reveal here because spoilers. If you have not yet picked this up I highly recommend you do. It‘s a great read for readers young and old.
