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.
I read SO much this week, I’m quite surprised at myself. I managed to complete all my OWLs except for Herbology, which I’m working on now.
Well, here’s a quick run-down of my progress so far:
Book read: The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
I read the Penguin Little Black Classics edition. I loved it.
Book read: Long Bright River by Liz Moore, narr. by Allyson Ryan
I listened to the audiobook. It was pretty good.
Book read: Vicious by V.E. Schwab
This was so good! I really liked it. Schwab is a great storyteller.
Care of Magical Creatures
Book read: Spot & Dot by Henry Cole (illus.)
A children’s picture book that has a tiny illustration of a bird on the front, lol. The bird is neither Spot or Dot.
Book read: The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak
A children’s picture book. It has no pictures. I love it.
Defense Against the Dark Arts
Book read: Hello, Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall (illus.)
A children’s picture book. I really liked it.
Book read: Oddly Normal, bk. 1 by Otis Frampton (illus.)
A middle-grade graphic novel. It was okay.
Book read: …I’m working on it. (See currently reading section below.)
History of Magic
Book read: Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett
It was funny; felt a bit long though.
Book read: Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares
A sweet read as always, but I think I prefer the first three more.
Book read: The Madness of Cambyses by Herodotus
Nonfiction. I read the Penguin Little Black Classics edition. A lot of people died.
Book read: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (illus.)
Sweet and funny and aww… I love it!
Coming Soon: Book Shelf Tour
Shout out to everyone who voted in my first ever poll. Thank you!
I’ll be doing a bookshelf tour soon starting in May.
I haven’t yet figured out how exactly I’ll do it, but it’s coming. It’s coming soon. 🙂
What I’m currently reading:
The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas, illus. by Antonio Javier Caparó
I’m about 120 pages in. I like it although I already have some issues with it because I have no idea what the protagonist’s motivations are. What does he really want? I don’t feel like I have a solid idea of who he is and it’s annoying me.
