Magical Read-a-thon: Signing up and setting my TBR!

Thanks to the awesome Read-a-thon Guide @ Duskangelreads, I came across this amazing reading challenge! [You can find the original BookTube-video here.]

Of course, I’ll be doing my own ApTHRILL as well, but I simply couldn’t pass up on a Harry Potter-themed challenge. Definitely not one where I can get my OWL’s! Like, seriously?! Count me in!

I am so NOT planning on reading all these books, but it’ll be fun to see how many OWL’s I can collect, haha. I’ll mostly try to stick to my ApTHRILL TBR but I really couldn’t resist this one either… And my ApTHRILL TBR will be up on the 31st!

Can you resist? Are you joining?
Ready to get your OWL’s?!

  1. I couldn’t resist this readathon either! I’m looking forward to seeing how many O.W.Ls I can get. I didn’t even consider The Last Namsara for Care of Magical Creatures!

  2. Aghh, I so wish I could join this but I don’t think I’ll be able to 😦 I just caved in and ordered Children of Blood and Bone (in my defense, there were sales today!) so I’ll hopefully be reading that next month as well! We’ll see, I’m really excited for it though!
