Weekend Reads #99: Week 3 — OWLs 2020 Progress Report & Bookshelf Tour

Weekend Reads is a weekly post I haven’t done much of in a very long time, but I’m jumping back into it this month to share my reading progress for the OWLs Magical Readathon, which is taking place this entire month.

Well, my reading slowed down last week, so I didn’t complete any books. I did, however, play a lot of Sims Freeplay and completed challenges there, lol.

The subjects I’ve completed so far for the OWLs:

Ancient Runes

Book read: The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
I read the Penguin Little Black Classics edition, which contains three of Poe’s short stories all of which were great, but I liked “The Tell-Tale Heart” the most.

Arithmancy
Astronomy
Care of Magical Creatures
Charms
Defense Against the Dark Arts
Divination

Book read: Oddly Normal, bk. 1 by Otis Frampton (illus.)
A fantasy middle-grade graphic novel about a girl who’s a half-witch and has difficulty fitting in at school. A quick, fun read.

Herbology
History of Magic

Book read: Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett
The second novel in the Witches sub-series or the Discworld series. It’s a humorous fantasy novel about three witches trying to save a kingdom from a tyrant.

Muggle Studies

Book read: Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares
The fourth novel in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series, a YA contemporary series about the strong friendship between four girls and a pair of pants they share.

Potions
Transfiguration

Book read: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (illus.)
A YA graphic novel that was surprisingly good. I consider it a favorite. I enjoyed it immensely.


Book Shelf Tour

I’m toying with the idea to do a bookshelf tour. I enjoy reading/watching them and would like to do my own too. I did a mini one on my Instagram recently, but I’m considering to do a larger one on here showing all the books since my selves are double and triple stacked. I’ve seen a couple bloggers do it as a series of posts and I like that idea, so I might do that too.

Let me know if you’re interested in such a post in the poll below.

I recently managed to organize my shelves. So here are updated photos of them (updated since I last showed pictures on my shelves on here, which was probably years ago). 🙂


What I’m currently reading:

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

This one has my full attention right now. I’m so hooked and sped through half of it yesterday. If today is as dull as yesterday was (which it will be), I’ll complete it today and make some progress on my OWLs.

What are you reading this weekend?
