“If alchemy was our religion, then we were its priests. We held the power, and we would reap the rewards, but the burdens were ours alone.”

I will start by saying that I was given an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. These opinions are my own. Thank you so much Meghan Harrington and team at Wednesday Books for sending a copy my way. I am very thankful for be part of this Blog Tour.

Quarterly Check-in

Hello,

Oh my god I cannot believe that we are in July already. And what a weird start to the year we have all had. Since we have moved into October — my favourite month! — I thought give a little update my reading challenges and overall stats for the second quarter of the year.

Also there are pie charts! Yay for charts!

These stats look at all the books I’ve read so far in 2020, with a little disclaimer that not all the books have been released in 2020.

N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon 2020 TBR

Hello,

This year marks the third year of the N.E.W.T.s readathon which is hosted on BookTube by G from Book Roast. It’s a month long Harry Potter themed readathon where each for each book you read, will go towards your N.E.W.T exams. This is a continuation of the O.W.L.s readathon which happened in April.

This will be the last of the N.E.W.T.s. Given the near constant derogatory comments J.K Rowling has made towards the trans community G has decided that she will no longer continue with the O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s. I commend G’s decision as the comments made were horrible and honestly not things I believe should be said. It’s 2020 you would think and hope that as a society we would’ve reach an overall point of acceptance for all minority groups and it pains me to see that this is not the case. 

At this stage it looks like G is planning for the magical readathon will be back in 2021 but with a new magical universe that she’s created. I have no doubt that it will be amazing. G is a seriously creative person—you just have to look at the career guides she created to know that—so I’m exciting to see what will happen.

Unlike with the O.W.L.s were you are only required to complete one book per subject, in the N.E.W.Ts you may be required to read multiple books per subject to prove your skill. Each subject in the N.E.W.Ts will contain three prompts, each for a specified grade. The grades are Acceptable (A), Exceeded Expectations (E) and Outstanding (O).

June Romanceopoly TBR

Hello,

I am here today with my next Romanceopoly TBR. The board is getting pretty full which is going to make it interesting. One side only has one prompt left.

Like the name suggests, it’s romanced themed Monopoly game which is designed to get you to explore a range of different sub genres. Each neighbourhood has been replaced by a genre and each street has a unique challenge within that genre. Although, some neighbourhoods are a little more diverse and offer a melting pot of different genres to delve into.

The challenge is hosted by the ladies over at PeaceLoveBooksxo and Under the Covers Book Blog. For all the information about the challenge and recommendations can be found at the Romanceopoly website.
