Readers! It’s that time of year again when we’re all wondering how our letters to Hogwarts got lost in the post…again.
To beat the I’m-not-going-to-Hogwarts blues, I’ve decided to join the Hogwarts-A-Thon Readathon, hosted by Lau Reads and Niffler Reads. After I enjoyed and was so successful with the N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon in August, I thought I’d love to join another one, so when Faye invited me I couldn’t resist!
Platform 9 3/4 – a sequel
I always find I never get around to sequels because I leave it too long between each book. So I thought this would be the perfect chance to read Smoke in the Sun while Flame in the Mist is still quite fresh in my mind!
Welcome to Hogwarts – a book over 394 pages
I knew I could only complete this readathon if my ARCs fit into it, and thankfully they do! I’m currently reading American Royals.
Sorting Hat – a book with your house colour on the cover
I didn’t actually have a yellow book (I have a different ARC of Frankly in Love), so when I saw this on eBay I knew I had to pick it up. It’s not something I’d usually read now, but I loved Call it What You Want and I’m meeting Brigid Kemmerer next month!
Ghosts of Hogwarts – a contemporary
Another book on my ARC shelf which I’m so excited for! I’m hoping to read this after American Royals.
Mr Ollivander – a book over 2 years old
It took a while to find a book over 2 years old I want to pick up, but I eventually settled on this one.
Diagon Alley – a book with a lot of hype
This is my last ARC on my TBR, but one I’ve seen a lot about and I’ve become more and more excited for with the hype.
Flourish & Blotts – a random book from your TBR
I’m so looking forward to reading this one so I thought it’d be perfect to pick for the end of the month to get me into a Halloween mood!
BONUS: Forbidden Forest – a book with dark themes
‘Dark themes’ is a pretty broad topic, but I think this one will fit? I also want to make sure I read it before meeting Brigid in October!
Are you joining this readathon?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
