Triwizard Tournament – Third Task Wrap Up

Green Cypress

This is the third and final task of the Triwizard Tournament and it ran from the 9th to the 15th December. This is the post to the explanation of the task and here is my TBR for this task. Spoiler – I didn’t stick to my TBR.

I did a lot better on this week than I did on the other two weeks and I had a good time looking for books to fit these prompts, they were a lot harder to find books I owned and wanted to read for these prompts than I thought.

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.

Triwizard Tournament – Second Task

The second task is upon us! This round runs from the 25th November to the 1st December. I appreciate the gap between the first and second tasks because it means I can finish up two other readathons in between. The explanation post for this task is here.

Anyway, I am part of Beauxbatons which means I have to retrieve a sibling and I think I’m going to use Gillyweed to get them.

Triwizard Tournament – First Task Wrap Up

Despite starting this task late, I actually managed to get the golden egg and use two different methods to retrieve it! I had a TBR and not only did I stick to it, but I also read a book extra, which is unheard of for me with a readathon. I am loving having the Discord group to talk about the books with and it’s helping me stay on track.

My TBR for this task is here and the explanation post is here. All covers link to Goodreads.

Triwizard Tournament – First Task

So I completely forgot I signed up for this at the beginning of September! I missed the Opening Ceremony and the start of the First Task, but I still have three days to finish some books.

This is a Harry Potter themed readathon with stages and different tasks. You get sorted into a school depending on when your birthday is, which means my school is Beauxbatons!

The First Task runs from the 11th to the 17th November and I have to defeat the Hungarian Horntail! The post for this task is here.
