Let me start with the bad news. Or maybe I should say the “Here’s Kathy, full of shame”-news. I was supposed to have my weekly IT-readalong post up today, but as it occurs.. I haven’t read beyond the first week mark? Today’s the second week mark. I am so behind, people! 400 pages behind! I’m going to try and catch up but we’ll see how it goes.. There are so many other books I feel like reading right now and ugh.
Anyway! Since I’m still *unofficially* participating in Blogtober, I’m using today’s post to wrap up the whole reason I’m off schedule. The Charms: Extra Credit Readathon! I couldn’t say no to this one and I realize this has caused me to neglect IT. I just wanted to get all the books read, true Hermione-style, in order to get some April-advantages. As if you can blame me for that! But.. Did I succeed?
Well, I think I did! Not in a Hermione-way, but it’s close. I didn’t tick off all five prompts, but I did manage to read four books and I’m super happy with that! Even more so since I barely read a page this weekend which means the bulk of my reading happened throughout the week – yay me!
First in a series ~ Shiver #1 by Maggie Stiefvater [CHECK]
The top of your TBR ~ Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean [CHECK]
Fire / flames ~ Sinner #4 by Maggie Stiefvater [Started, sort of]
Tickles you the right way ~ Forever #3 by Maggie Stiefvater [CHECK]
Light cover ~ Linger #2 by Maggie Stiefvater [CHECK]
As you can see, I definitely succeeded at bingeing Maggie Stiefvater’s series! I actually like these books more than I did The Raven Cycle? Maybe due to werewolf-nostalgia.. I’ve yet to read Sinner, which is the fourth “installment”. I’ve started already, but am only fifteen pages in so that doesn’t really count, does it?
Apart from those three.. I also picked up Empress of All Seasons. Thanks to a review I read, I suddenly had the biggest urge to read it immediately, which – in my book – counts as “top of my TBR” and.. well.. I totally felt like that counted even though it was a spur of the moment thing, haha.
Conclusion: I read an awful lot in a short amount of time and I get to start my Charms-O.W.L.’s four days early in April! Yay! I’m already looking forward to the next Extra Credit-readathon. Seriously, when is it and what subject is next?! Can anyone tell meeee?
Did you join this readathon? How did you do?
Are you planning on getting your O.W.L.’s in April?
