Magical All-nighter – 24 hours of reading

I’m taking part in the N.E.W.Ts Readathon that is hosted by Book Roast for the duration of August. It’s a Harry Potter themed reading challenge where you take exams (= complete book prompts) to pass the Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests! More info here.

As part of the NEWTs, Book Roast hosted a Magical All-nighter for some exam cramming. The All-nighter is a 24 hour readathon and the rules are simple: between Fri 10th 7pm and Sat 11th 7pm, read as much as you can! It’s not a requirement of the all-nighter, but those who are very ambitious and slightly bonkers can try and read for 24 hours straight without sleep.

Guess who loves readathons and is both ambitious and bonkers.

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

The ah-mazing Arden @ Phantom Paper tagged me in the 3 Day Quote Challenge a month back. Thank you so much for the tag! If you haven’t yet discovered that Phantom Paper is one of the most marvelous book bloggers out there, you really should hop over to her blog to see for yourself (after you’ve read this post, of course lol).

I’m so happy that I was tagged in this because I love quotes. I always try to have my phone close by when I read so that I can make a memo of any quotes I happen to come across. Kindle books are pretty cool in this regard as I can highlight books and the quotes are automatically stored in Goodreads.

I’ll be sharing some of my favourite quotes in the next three days!

July Fairyloot unboxing

I’m so excited to share with you my Fairyloot unboxing for July! Unfortunately, this will be my last box for awhile as I got the subscription as a gift and I’m now running out of months. SAD. I love these boxes with all my heart!

A little info: Fairyloot is a UK based subscription book box that ships internationally. The boxes come monthly and they always include a newly released hardcover fantasy YA book and bookish goodies surrounding a delicious theme that changes every month. Everything in the boxes is a surprise!

A word of warning! If you are still waiting for your July Fairyloot or if you are saving the opening of it to a perfect moment, please don’t proceed! You will get spoiled on what’s in the box. But come back when you’ve unboxed your loot so that we can hype together! 😊

Let’s dive into the box!

What I read in July with mini-reviews

Hello! How was July for you? To me, July seemed to pass by in full speed but I still managed to read 9 books! I’m pretty smug with this amount as I only read 5 in June. Look at me go!

The bad news is that most of my reads were pretty meh. Good ones were few and far between but – oh man – the good ones were GOOD.

Here are some quick July reading stats:

Summer TBR Wipeout 2018 – Update #2

Oh man I can’t believe that it’s time for the second update for the Summer TBR Wipeout reading challenge already! And I’m even adding this post pretty late. I was on a holiday and, accordingly, time simply swooshed by and I don’t know where it went.

Ramblings aside, this wonderful challenge is hosted by the Candid Cover to topple the TBR mountain. This is the last update before the final wrap-up on the 12th of August, I gotta start speeding through my TBR!
