What I both hate, and love, about this challenge, is that it doesn’t include any of the manga, webtoons, webnovels, or otherwise that I read over the course of the year. Those numbers would bolster these ones by so much. I read through four whole webnovels. I keep up to date on so many manga and webtoons, and none of those technically count on this list. In some ways, it’s nice to see just what books I read, but it’s not all the reading that I have done. Next year I think I will make note of all the other forms of fiction that I read on a similar list.

Regardless, this challenge was fun and easy to do. I am doing it again next year, for certain!

And so here ends this challenge. We have more posts to come. See you soon.



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.


April Reading List

April Reading List

May 1st! May Day. Two days until my birthday! (May 3rd) May is here and with it is the end of April. The end of OWLs. The end of waiting for grad school responses (which sadly were all rejections). And the official end of my one review a week. (I’ve read a few books this month we can say.) Just look at how many books I read this month! So many! Who knew reading challenges would do so much to help me get back into reading?
