As you might know – or might now find out about – there’s another Magical Readathon coming our way very soon! Christmas-related, might I add! Harry Potter-related, might I shout! Can you see how ready am I for this? I’m not that far off from shouting this off the roofs, to be honest. I love-love-love Book Roast’s Magical Readathons, so I can’t pass up on this one either. If you want to check out the official announcement, simply click here and start watching

Now, for the fun stuff! The read-a-thon starts on December 17th and ends December 26th. There’s a beautiful map on which you can decide what activities you want to do, so I.. totally let myself go? You can find the map under the announcement video!

Main activities I want to tick off:
Finish your coursework ~ Well.. Let’s see what’s on my current reads the moment the read-a-thon starts? I really can’t predict this one! [Finish your current read]

  1. Definitely a fun and kind of varied TBR 😀 Good luck with the readathon! I don’t think I’ll participate in this one, because I have exams on the 18th and the 20th of December, and then short-a-thon starts as well… so I don’t know how much I could participate 😀

    1. Me too! It actually gave me inspiration to start reading my ARCs based on length instead of date of publication, and I might be overdue on a few ARCs that came out in November, but I made more progress in one day than I did in the month before that. So there’s that 😀
