SimsAThon/October TBR

This month I am participating in 2 ReadAThons! SimsAThon is a month long ReadAThon themed around the Sims game which takes place for the entirety of October & I’m also participating in MateAThon but I will have a dedicated TBR for that one coming soon.
So let’s jump into the SimsAThon TBR first!

Choose A Household: Read a book from later in a series

This is the 28th book in the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie, so it’s definitely later in the series!

Build a House: Read something set in another world

This is a YA standalone fantasy set in the Kingdom of Achra!

Perfect the Layout: Read a book with an interesting format

I plan to reread the whole The Illuminae Files series via audiobook this month. I have read the whole series & also reread Illuminae & Gemina via audiobook but I want to reread Obsidio via audiobook. So I am rereading the whole series. Illuminae is also written as a dossier of documents, so it fits the challenge well!

Interior Design: Read a book with a pretty cover

I love this cover and I have been meaning to read it for a while! This one I will be listening to as an audiobook.

Live Mode

Fall in Love: Read a book with a romance element

I don’t usually deliberately choose romance books but this one sounds like an interesting Sci-Fi book but also has romance. So hopefully it isn’t too over the top!

Reach the top of your Career Track: Read a finale

This is the last book in the Fallen Isles Trilogy and I can’t wait to get to this one!

Take a bubble bath: Read a book over 400 pages

This is the last book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series and I can’t wait for this one either! I’m a little nervous as I didn’t love an element in Escaping the Houdini but I’m hoping I will love this one as much as I love Stalking Jack the Ripper & Hunting Prince Dracula.

Get Married: Read a book with an established couple

This one features a couple that is established in one of the previous books and I already wanted to read it, so it fits perfectly!

Pay Bills: Read your most recent purchase

My most recent purchase was of the 3 Exclusive Collector’s Editions of the US Shades of Magic series. So out of those 3 I only have A Conjuring of Light left to read, so that is the one I will be reading for this challenge!

Astronaut: Read a book set in space

This is set on another planet, so close enough to space. This is Volume 4 of The Woods.

Athlete: Read a book featuring sports

This one is pretty self explanatory. A graphic novel featuring fencing.

Business: Read a book with a number in the title

The Woods: Vol 5! Another self explanatory one as the number 5 is in the title.

Criminal: Read a Thriller

This is a Thriller that was being hyped up around release and I have been curious about since! So I’m keen to get to the audiobook of this one.

Painter: Read a book with a colourful cover

This is another Graphic Novel that I have been keen to get to and it has a colourful cover, so it fits the challenge!

Secret Agent: Read a mystery book

For this challenge I will just be listening to the next book in the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie. Whichever one that is!

Style Influencer: Read a hyped book

When everyone was hyping this book I said to myself that I would not read it as I was quite frankly just sick of hearing about it. Then when I was looking for books for my TBR I was scrolling down my saved audiobooks on Scribd and this one was there, so I decided to give it a go.

Tech Guru: Read a futuristic book

Wildcard is the sequel to Warcross which is a futuristic sci-fi gaming type book and I’m keen to get to it except that I really hope the romance that was present in Warcross does not come up in this one.

Writer: Read a book by a new-to-you author

This is another audiobook I want to listen to and I can’t wait to get to it.

Then there was also these challenges but I haven’t chosen any books for these just yet.

Other books on my TBR!

Hogwarts House Battles + September 💫 TBR

So, you may have seen my post last week with my TBR for September & Reading Rivalry. Well it is 3 days into September and I decided to leave the Reading Rivalry groups. This is mainly because the people running things were so damn pushy. I joined the group for the reading only but was pushed to answer questions and post daily instagram posts (or weekly reviews) and if you didn’t comment or post then you would get tagged in posts with reminders.. Which even after 3 days was just getting bloody irritating. I don’t mind doing a monthly insta challenge but I don’t like being pushed to post if I don’t feel like it and I prefer ones that have challenges anyone can do. This challenge was very US based from what I could tell. Day 2s challenge being ‘Labour Day’, which is COMPLETELY irrelevant to me. For one, it is not labour day here in Australia and 2 basically no one in Australia (myself included) gives a damn about Labour Day. It means nothing to us besides a day off work/school. So why would I make a post about it?
So anyways, I just had an issue with how things were run on that group and made the decision just to leave it as it wasn’t worth the irritation.

Now, onto the actual TBR! After posting my last TBR I decided to join the Hogwarts House Battles, so here is my TBR for that!

Alchemy – New Forms – Read a recommendation from a friend

I was recommended this one a while back and I was going to use it for a similar challenge for the NEWTs but didn’t get to it. So I’m putting it on this TBR instead! I have started this one and am about 50 pages in and I’m intrigued so far.

Apparition – Teleportation – Only Read this book in public

This challenge I will be skipping as I don’t read any books in public except for the odd few pages when waiting at the Drs.

Arithmancy – Numbers – Read a book with a number in the title

The Woods: Vol 3 has the number 3 in the title. It’s also the next volume I need to read and I’m keen to continue.

Astronomy – Reading under the stars – Only read this book at Night

I haven’t chosen a specific book for this one but I will likely just pick up a graphic novel or novella that I can finish in one sitting at night.

Care of Magical Creatures – The Beasts – Read a book with an animal on the cover

Appointment with Death has a snake on the cover, so it fits. It’s also the next book in the Hercule Poirot series that I need to read!

Charms – Something New & Unexpected – Read a “New-To-You” Book

Ford this one basically what I did was went onto Scribd, into the audiobook section and looked at the recommendation until I found a cover hat I hadn’t seen before. I then looked up the genre on Goodreads, mainly to make sure it wasn’t romance heavy & also checked it wasn’t a sequel. And this is what I found, which actually sounds right up my alley. It’s a Historical Fiction set during WWII which it the part of Historical Fiction I gravitate towards.

Defence Against the Dark Arts – Can’t Last – Read a book you previously put down

Furyborn I started to read physically just after it came out. I was trying to get out of a reading slump at the time and was told by a few people that it was pretty slow going, so I decided to put it down. A slow book didn’t sound like the best idea for a slump. So I’m going to give it another go but this time via audiobook.

Divination – The Future – Read a predicted 5 star read

The Devil’s Thief is the second book to The Last Magician which I really enjoyed! I just still haven’t gotten to The Devil’s Thief yet! I haven’t decided whether I will read this physically or on audiobook. I want to read it physically but it is huge and kinda intimidating. I also originally read book 1 on audiobook, so I’m indecisive on whether I should audiobook or physically read it!

Flying – Fly High – Read your most anticipated book

At the moment this is the book that I’m super keen to get into, so I’m considering it my most anticipated.

Herbology – Caring – Read a book that means a lot to you

I haven’t chosen a book for this one specifically as I don’t know if I’ll do the challenge. Of course I would reread Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for this challenge but I only just finished another reread of the whole series this morning, so if I have time I might do it but it won’t be top priority.

History of Magic – Historical – Read a book from another generation

Hercule Poirot’s Christmas is well and truly from another generation considering it was published in 1938. This is also the next book after Appointment with Death in the series!

Muggle Studies – Blending In – Read a hyped book

The Shades of London series in general is super hyped and I’ve been meaning to read this one for ages! So I thought it was time to add this one to a TBR!

Potions – Mixing – Read a genre you wouldn’t usually pick up

I haven’t chosen a book for this one as I have felt a little slumpy lately, so at the moment I don’t think it’s the best idea to be picking up something I wouldn’t usually and risking making the slump worse. If later in the month I feel like it I might choose something but for now I’m not.

Study of Ancient Runes – Ancients – Read a classic novel

I don’t generally read classics as they usually aren’t genres I’m interested in or are very romance heavy, so I haven’t picked anything for this one.

Transfiguration – Change – Read the Last Book You Bought

As of right now the last book I bought was a Harry Potter Box Set which is strictly for display only, so I will not be reading that one. I will basically choose a book for this one if I buy something else between now & the end of the month.

The rest of my September TBR!

Okay, so I have put the covers for the two Year Book Editions of The Woods just to display that I want to finish all the issues that are currently out rather than putting all of the volume covers.
House of Salt and Sorrows I saw on Scribd yesterday on Audiobook! I’ve been seeing it around and the cover is gorgeous, so I want to pick it up!
Spin the Dawn is also on audiobook on scribd. I do own it physically but I feel like picking up the audiobook at the moment. But will see what happens throughout the month!
Kriss is a Graphic Novel eARC that I need to get to and I’m super keen to jump in!
We are Blood and Thunder is a review copy I got from Bloomsbury and I really need to get to it! Just haven’t had the chance yet. So I’m keen to get into it.

Well that is all of the books currently on my TBR!
What are you most looking forward to in September?!

TBR Jar ReadAThon 💫 Round #7 Announcement!

Dates: 6th – 15th of September, 2019

How it works

This ReadAThon is pretty simple. First, pick a goal. I will be aiming for 7 books, but you can choose as many or as little books as you wish.
Next, grab a jar, or cup, or hat, it really doesn’t matter. Something you can put names into.
For the next step, you can do this one a few ways.
Option 1 is to put all the books on your TBR (physical, eBook, audiobook, whatever you wish) into a hat.
Option 2, you can pick some of the books you are most looking forward to and put them in a hat. Or you can also put the books that fit another challenge/ReadAThon you’re participating in and put them in the jar
Option 3, (this is what I will be doing), get a 2nd jar, in 1 jar put all the physical & eBooks books on your TBR into it and in the 2nd jar put all the audiobooks on your TBR.
Lastly, pick a name out of the jar and read that book, then pick another name and read that book and continue until you either hit your goal or run out of time in the ReadAThon.

Extra Info

You can choose to pull the number of names you choose for your goal out of the jar prior to the ReadAThon or pull them out as you go.

Use the hashtag #TBRJarRAT so I can see what you’re up to (also if it is on Twitter or Instagram then you can tag the @TBRJarRAT page too.

So, some of you may have a few books from the same series still on your TBR. Join the club. So if this is the case, you can either choose to only put the 1st book (or the book you are up to) in the TBR jar OR you can put it in as the full series. So if you pick up that name, then you have to try and read all the books from that series that you have on your shelf.
This ReadAThon is very customisable, so do whatever fits you.

NEWTs & Beat the Bingo ReadAThon ✨ Week 2 Update

We are 2 weeks into NEWTs Magical ReadAThon & Beat the Bingo ReadAThon so here is another update to see how I’m doing so far!

Stats

Firstly here is some stats! Again I’m using Caz’s ReadAThon Tracker !!
So far I have completed 15 of the NEWTs Challenges including 5 of the 7 Challenges that I specifically need to complete to obtain the Magizoologist Career. For Beat the Bingo I have completed 11 of the challenges.

Day 7 to 14 is shown in this second screen capture. left side is Audio minutes listened to & right is pages read. The yellowy columns are the total pages/minutes & the white is the progress that day.

My Bullet Journal

In this Tracker I track both Audio & Books by converting the minutes to pages and combining that with books.

Pink is physical reads, Purple is audiobooks & Teal is Graphic Novels.

Books Read & Challenges Completed

If you didn’t see my Week 1 Update then check that one out too as I won’t be repeating those books.

This one is a super quick and cute Graphic Novel!
Heartstopper: Vol 2 fulfils the Care of Magical Creatures Exceeds Expectation challenge to Read a book under 300 pages. I didn’t use this one for a challenge of Beat the Bingo.

Solitaire by Alice Oseman was an audiobook I listened to. Its definitly not my favourite Alice Oseman book but it wasn’t bad. I just preferred I Was Born For This & Radio Silence a lot more.
This one fulfils the NEWTs Defence Against a Dark Arts Acceptable Challenge to Read a book with black under the dust jacket.

Shadow Frost was the next book I read and this one was an eARC I had from NetGalley. If you want to check out the review you can find it HERE!
Shadow Frost fulfilled the NEWTs Charms Acceptable challenge to Read a book you think has a gorgeous cover.

I Am Change I read in one day! It was so freaking good. This one I read for a Blog Tour and my review will be up on the 19th.
I Am Change fulfilled the NEWTs Herbology Outstanding challenge to Read a book with a flower on the cover. As well as the Beat the Bingo challenge to Read a book with a plant on the cover.

Next I listened to the audiobook of Legend by Marie Lu.
Legeng fulfilled the NEWTs Divination Acceptable challenge to Read a White Book. This one is a big greyer than white but oh well. Also for Beat the Bingo this one fulfils the Read a Sci-Fi Book challenge.

This is the second book to Legend, Prodigy by Marie Lu. I also listened to this one on audiobook.
Prodigy fulfils the NEWTs Care of Magical Creatures Outstanding challenge to Read a book with a bird on the cover as well as the Read a book with a blue cover challenge for Beat the Bingo ReadAThon.

The Woods Vol 1 is the first volume of a new Graphic Novel series I have started. So far this one is interesting and I’m keen to see where this goes.
The Woods: Vol 1 fulfils the NEWTs Charms Exceeds Expectation challenge to Read a Comic/Graphic Novel/Manga as well as the Beat the Bingo challenge to Read a Graphic Novel.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was the next audiobook I listened to. Of course I loved this one as it’s a Reread.
This one fulfilled the NEWTs History of Magic Outstanding challenge to Reread a Favourite as well as the Reread a Favourite challenge of Beat the Bingo.

Shadow of the Fox was the next audiobook I listened to.
Shadow of the Fox fulfils the NEWTs Arithmancy Outstanding challenge to Read a book that’s longer than 350 pages. As well as the Beat the Bingo ReadAThon challenge to Read a book with a red cover

Lastly I read Vol 2 of The Woods which made me even more curious about where this series is going!
This one fulfilled the NEWTs Transfiguration Exceeds Expectations challenge to Read a book that’s not the first in a series.

Currently Reading

I am also Currently Reading As She Ascends by Jodi Meadows. This one doesn’t fulfil any of the NEWTs of Beat the Bingo challenges as this is for a ReadALong and we won’t be finishing it until September. Incase you wanted to join I’ll leave the info below.

Have you read any of these books? 
What did you think about them?

Harry Potter Edition ✨ Fantasy JourneyAThon TBR

So Fantasy JourneyAThon starts in 2 minutes as I’m writing this sentence. Originally I planned to film a TBR video for my Channel but It has been a crazy couple days and I just haven’t had the time to film & edit! Now the ReadAThon has started and my TBR still isn’t up, so here it is!

Fantasy JourneyAThon Announcement

Firstly I am on Team Gryffindor and I will be earning points throughout the week by participating in the Instagram & Litsy Challenges as well as reading!

My TBR

Read a book with a bird on the cover

This is the second book to Legend by Marie Lu, which I haven’t actually read. I planned to read it before the ReadAThon but haven’t got there. So I will also be aiming to read Legend this book!

Read a book with witches/wizards

This is of course a reread for me and I can’t wait. I’ve been really enjoying my physical reread of this series!

Read a book with scarlet on the cover

This one is an audiobook that I have had on my TBR for way too long! Finally picking it up and fulfilling this challenge!

Read a book with a tree on the cover

This one has a whole Wood on the cover, so I think it fits. This is Volume 1 in a new to me Graphic Novel series and I can’t wait to dive in!

Read a book under 300 pages

This is the other Graphic Novel I have in my TBR and I’m keen for this one too! It’s also super short so fits this challenge!

Read a book with a beautiful cover

This one definitely fits this challenge as this cover is beautiful! This is a cover read for sure as I know nothing about this book! This one is also an audiobook I will be listening to.

Read a book with a dark theme

I don’t know much about this one but I have it on my physical TBR and it looks super dark and creepy!

Read a book with multiple POV or Authors

This is my next audiobook and this is an anthology. So not only does it have multiple POV but it also has multiple Authors!

Read a book with magic

This is the last audiobook on my tbr! I keep hearing good things about this one and apparently it has magic, so I’m in!

Read a book set in the real world

This one I need to read for a Blog Tour which is happening soon, so I chose it for this challenge! It is set in our world so it fits this challenge!

Are you participating in the Harry Potter edition of Fantasy JourneyAThon? What team are you on?!

NEWTs & Beat the Bingo – Week 1 Update!

So we are 1 week through NEWTs Magical ReadAThon & Beat the Bingo ReadAThon, so I thought I would do an update! So far I have completed 5 NEWTs Challenges & 4 Beat the Bingo Challenges!

Firstly here is some stats! I’m using Caz’s ReadAThon Tracker which I love and it keeps you up to date with your current reading stats! You may notice it says I have completed 7 challenges, that’s not actually correct. As I have combined BtB & NEWTs on one spreadsheet and the spreadsheet doesn’t calculate 1 book counting for multiple challenges this is only showing up with 7 completed, but I’ve actually completed 9 challenges between the 2 ReadAThons.

Book Read & Challenges completed

Firstly, we have Murder in the Mews by Agatha Chrsite. This one I started in July but finished it in August during NEWTs & BtB, so it doesn’t count for any of the challenges! I love 99% of Agatha Christie books and this one did not disappoint!

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon was my first physical read for the ReadAThons! This is book 3 of The Bone Season series and It was so freaking good! 5 stars hands down and I can’t wait for the next book in this series to release.
The Song Rising fulfilled the Herbology Exceeds Expectation Challenge of Read a book between 350 – 390 pages as well as the Read a Dystopian Book for Beat the Bingo ReadAThon!

Dumb Witness by Agatha Christie was my first audiobook for the ReadAThons & obviously this is another Agatha Christie book and also lived up the expectation. I like how this one was told in a different way to most of the Christie books I’ve read!
This one fulfilled the NEWTs Potions Exceeds Expectations Challenge of Read a book with a cover in your Hogwarts House Colour & also the Beat The Bingo Challenge Read a Mystery Book

Binti was the next Audiobook I read for the ReadAThon. This one was super short and I easily listened to it in one day! I have kinda mixed feelings about this one. I enjoyed the overall story but I also feel like it was lacking in most aspects due to it’s length and lack of explanation.
Binti fulfilled the NEWTs Muggle Studies Outstanding Challenge of Book written by a person of colour & the Read an Own Voices Book for Beat the Bingo!

Dare You To Lie was the next Audiobook I listened to and I loved it! This book gripped me from the very start & I listened to it in 2 straight sessions! I just couldn’t stop!
Dare You to Lie fulfilled the NEWTs Muggle Studies Acceptable Challenge of Cover that includes and actual photo element!

This one I technically finished on Day 8, but I’m putting it in here anyway as I read it before writing this post! The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan is the second Riordan book I’ve read and it left me underwhelmed! I just don’t think Riordan books are for me at this point!
The Sword of Summer fulfilled the Ancient Runes Exceeds Expectations challenge to Read a book written in past tense & also the Beat the Bing challenge to Read a Middle Grade book.
This book is labelled as Young Adult on Goodreads and the MC is 16, however it reads more childish to me and feels a lot more like a Middle Grade than YA.

Currently Reading!

I am currently listening to Solitaire by Alice Oseman, however I haven’t read a tonne of this one yet so I don’t really have an opinion as yet!
This one will fulfil the NEWTs Defence Against the Dark Arts Acceptable Challenge to Read a book with Black under the dust jacket.

Are you participating in NEWTs or Beat the Bingo? How much progress have you made?
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?
