Triwizard Tournament – Second Task Wrap Up

Fish Underwater

Well, I definitely did not get as much read for this week as I was wanting to. I fell into a bit of a reading slump since I was frantically trying to write 20,000 words for Nanowrimo (I just about made it) and every time I sat down to read, I kept telling myself I should be writing. Not good.

That said, I did enjoy one of the books I read which is mostly a good sign. This ran from the 25th November to the 1st December.

Here is the post explanation and here is my TBR, which I did not stick to in the slightest.

Triwizard Tournament – Third Task

Green Cypress

The third and final task is here! This part of the readathon runs from the 9th to the 15th December and the goal is to get through the maze (which is fairly obvious to anyone who has read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).

My previous posts for this readathon are here. On previous tasks, I did the minimum in order to past the task and get to the next stage but since Beauxbatons are in second place, I decided I would try to read all the challenges in order to boost our score! Which was far harder than I thought. Combined with the other two readathons next week, we’ll see how everything goes.

Magical Winter Readathon – Week 2

This is the second week of the winter/seasonal readathon in the same kind of area as the O.W.Ls and N.E.W.Ts readathons. Week by week there are a series of choices on the website which give you your prompt(s) for the week.

 

This is the wrap up for Week 1, as well as what book I want to read for Week 2. This readathon is very much a choose-your-own-timing kind of readathon, but I like doing it week by week.

Face Off

Face OffAfter a rocky start, Savannah Wells finally has everything she wants in life: family, friends, a cat, and her ice hockey team. If she could only convince her mother to stop setting her up on increasingly awkward blind dates, life would be perfect.

Professional photographer Madison Scott isn’t going to settle for less than the happily ever after she reads about in romance novels. But her new next-door neighbor is sexy as hell, so when Savannah suggests a fake relationship in hopes of getting her mother to stop interfering in her private life, Maddie’s all in.

When fake dating, fake kissing, and forced proximity start to feel a lot like falling in love, Savannah and Madison will need to face off and decide if exchanging pretend for reality is really possible.

Magical Winter Readathon

This is another readathon in the N.E.W.Ts and O.W.Ls readathon series. This is a winter readathon which starts the 1st December. The website for this (and other) readathon is here.

The readathon is based around Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and each week a new chapter arrives on the website and there are multiple choices through each scenario which will lead you to one to three reading prompts for that week.

I absolutely love the idea of this readathon and I am very excited to go through it for the month of December. For the prompt I received and my TBR, please open the cut!

December TBR

It’s the last month of the year, the darkest month and Christmas month! I adore Christmas, so I really hope to get through some Christmas romances this month, though you won’t see any on this TBR. It’s also the month of trying to get books off my TBR so I can get my physical TBR down to a manageable level. I also looked at my list of Top Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2018 and was a little ashamed of how many books I still haven’t read. So a concentrated effort to try and get through some of them.
