Harry Potter Reread Reading Times

Here we go! The series reread that I’ve been anticipating the most this year. Was it everything I’d hoped it would be? Yes and no. It opened my eyes to a lot of things. Was it a bad reread? Of course not. I love this series. Simply that I didn’t realize how much I remembered the books through the lens of the movies. Even when I constantly say what the movies did wrong.

It was surprising.

October TBR

Hello! Everyone is is my favorite month! To be honest I have no idea if I will be able to complete all these books this month, considering all that I have planned to do for October. I will do my best. Anything that does not get finished will get moved to November, and at worst next year. This month I need to reevaluate my reading challenges and see where I am with all of them. I don’t think I am so far off completion for many of them, but I can’t be completely sure.

I got through so many series. The fact that remains hilarious is that most of these were read in August or before. October is going to be, probably 3 or more reviews a week as I try to catch back up? I’m actually not sure. I don’t like being so far behind on reviews, although I do know that it is better to have a queue. Whatever.

Until Next Time!

September Reading List

September Reading List

Hello everyone! It is officially Autumn and one year after I started this blog! This is our first September reading list, but it is not the last one. This September was all about reread/finishing the series for a bunch of books. I wasn’t able to get through all the books as I had placed on my impossible schedule. However could I really expect myself to complete all of those? No. That was almost too humorous to expect. I did get through a lot, however. So here you go!

The Wicked Years Series Review

The Wicked Years Series Review

Now we end a double week of great book posts! I feel like I wanted to give this a higher rating, but considering how I rated the three books as opposed to Wicked, it makes sense that its only a four.

I’ve actually decided to buy a new copy of Wicked that is a clean copy and then to annotate the copy I have now, seriously annotate it at least, because it already has writing in it, and I really do love this book. The first book is, without a doubt, going to be on my list of my favorite books I read.

Customary warning: This is a reminder that these are my personal opinions. My thoughts and feelings are not your thoughts and feelings. I may not always be the target  audience for a book; sometimes I am. If I do not like a book, that doesn’t mean you’ll dislike it. If I love a book or simply like a book, you may hate it. Take everything I say with this knowledge. If it sounds interesting to you despite what I’ve said, then go ahead and read it. You’ll only know you like something if you read it yourself.

That being said… Spoilers Ahead

August Reading List

August Reading List

Oh my goodness, I pulled it off. I actually did it! I can’t believe I did. For those of you who are new or just following for the first time, I suppose, I did the NEWTs exams for August. My goal was Auror with two additional classes, because I can’t make my life easy.

Info on the Reading Challenge or my post here

Info on my choices

This was only pretty much horrible for me for three reasons. One: I had to read an audio book (but that was a lot of fun and that review is coming tomorrow). Two: One of the series isn’t completed (thank heavens tho, because I hated The Keepers). Three: I had to pick up a series I accidentally DNFed (which I ended up loving. The Wicked series reviews will come later next month). I really pushed myself this month, to do things outside of my comfort zone. Was I rewarded? I think so. I read a lot of great books this month. I was not able to read the +3 (three books that I added because I started one series but did not finish it). Oh well no harm no foul, right?

But you aren’t here to hear me ramble. Scores for my NEWTs!

July Reading List

July Reading List

Happy July everyone. We are half way through 2019, and I am at 72 books read this year alone. It’s a lot, wow. I actually have a lot of TBR and to reread books, mostly because I have a lot of first two or three novels in a series, but I never finished it. I think that, as a goal moving on through the rest of this year, I’m going to actively work towards finishing the book series I own (finally) and finishing those reviews. Or at least after August and not December. August is for NEWTs and December is for dragons after all.
