Can you believe that today is the last day of April and the last day of the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon? I feel like April flew by, and I’m kind of shocked how great of a month it was for the blog.
This month I participated in the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon, and I decided to pursue the Culinary Sorcerer career. This career required me to complete four classes, Arithmancy, Charms, Herbology, and Potions, and I’m happy to say that I completed all of them! I also managed to squeeze in a couple of extra classes that I wasn’t planning on taking, Muggle Studies, Ancient Runes, and Astronomy.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I read this book for Arithmancy, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I don’t read fantasy very often, and I was nervous going into this book because of all the hype surrounding it. I ended up really liking the two main characters, and the plot twists kept me on the edge of my seat. If you’re interested, you can read my review here.
The Roxy Letters by Mary Pauline Lowry: I ended up reading this book for Charms because I couldn’t get into the original book I picked for this class. I wasn’t’ a huge fan of The Roxy Letters because some parts of the book were just too weird for my taste. If you want to read my review, you can read it here.
Meet Cute by Helena Hunting: I read this book for Herbology, and I loved it. This book was cute, funny, and had everything that I look for in a romance. I’m also grateful that I picked up this book because it saved me from a potential reading slump after deciding not to finish Dear Evan Hansen.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: I reread this book for Potions, and I forgot how weird it is. When I was filling in the book review section of my planner for this book, my only notes were “don’t do drugs” and “rewatch animated Disney movie.” I haven’t rewatched the movie yet, but maybe I’ll do that soon.
The Wedding War by Liz Talley: I read this book for Muggle Studies, and it was so much fun. This book is full of drama, friendship, and laugh-out-loud moments, which made it perfect for reading during this time of isolation. If you’re interested, you can read my review here.
What I Like About You by Marisa Kanter: I read this book for Ancient Runes, and it was so good. What I liked most about this book is that it featured the book blogging world, which was exciting for me, because that’s a world that I’m familiar with. The main character of this book did annoy me at times, but overall, I enjoyed the book. If you want to, you can read my review here!
Love’s Recipe by Mila Nicks: I was able to squeeze this cute book in at the end of the month for Astronomy class. I thought this book was a cute and quick read, and I really enjoyed it. It was full of delicious sounding food, which is something that I always enjoy.
