2020

Hi all!

Since it’s the end of the year, which still doesn’t feel real, I thought I’d look back on my reading year with a survey.

I’ve adapted this from questions for Cait at paper fury. It looked like fun and the pie chats looked so cute. You will be glad to know that I found a way to simplify the pie chart making process, and now have a spreadsheet which I fill in throughout the year and it automatically makes the charts yay!!

Also this is for the all books I’ve read in 2020 so not all where released this year.

2021 Reading Challenges & Goals

Hello,

Thank god it is finally the end of 2020! What a disaster of a year, which I am sure we are glad to see the back of. I didn’t do all the well at sticking to my goals — in particular not buying books — but yet it was a horrible and stressful year so I’m not being too hard on myself.

So, since it’s only fitting, I thought I’d share with you my goals and challenges for 2021.

Quarterly Check-in

Hello,

Oh my god I cannot believe that we are in October 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 third 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.
