O.W.L.s Magical Readathon 2020 TBR


Hey everyone!

I’m so incredibly excited that it’s O.W.L.s time again! This readathon was created by the incredible G over at Book Roast. For this readathon, you need to choose a profession, then complete the O.W.L.s prompts for the required subjects you will need to pass before taking your N.E.W.T.s. There are so many amazing careers to choose from and I actually ended up going with two because I couldn’t decide!

O.W.L.s Magical Readathon 2019 TBR


Hey everyone!

So, I know I’m extremely late getting to this AND I’ve already taken (and passed!) my N.E.W.T.s, but I feel my Hogwarts studies are incomplete. Since I didn’t find out about the O.W.L.s until it was too late, I figured I would spend the next month taking them so I can officially call myself a Mind Medic! So from November 1st to November 30th, I will be participating in my own little O.W.L.s readathon! And here is my planned TBR for the month.

The N.E.W.T.s readathon back in August went so well and I got through more books than I have in a month for a while, so I’m hoping that will be true this month as well! If you guys participated in the O.W.L.s this year, make sure to let me know in the comments how you did and what you read!

Popping in for a Quick Update!


Hey Everyone!

First off, I want to thank all of my newest followers for joining our little family! We just passed 850 book nerds and I couldn’t be happier! And thank you to all my long-time readers for always coming back. Your support and your lovely comments never fail to make my day. I feel so lucky to not only be able to write this blog but also to have such a wonderful and supportive community. I love and appreciate every single one of you more than I could ever express and your support is so incredibly meaningful to me. So thank you all so much for sticking with me! ❤

Now, on to a few quick updates about what’s to come the rest of this month as well as in November!

I have been in a bit of a writing slump, mainly due to health/sleep issues. I have also been very focused on starting off my current weight loss journey and this new diet I’m on is working…and completely kicking my butt! 😛 However, as I am improving my body and health, I am also aiming to improve my blogging (particularly my reviewing!) and reading as well. It’s been a bit since my last review, but I have many in the works that will be coming very soon for you guys!

Here’s just some of what you can expect to see during the coming weeks:

The Dark Lord Clementine by Sarah Jean Horwitz

House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig

The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal

The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

The Monster of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Also, since I did not find out about the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon until it had passed, I was only able to do the N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon. So I am planning to have my own little O.W.L.s Readathon during November so I can officially complete my studies at Hogwarts for the year! I’ll have my TBR for it posted at the beginning of the month. And if any of you feel up for a readathon, feel free to join me! 😀

Thank you all again for being so amazing ❤
