October TBR | Black History Month

October TBR | Black History Month

Hello Panda friends!

October is set to be a super busy month for me. If you saw my most recent installment of The Sunday Post you will have read that I will now be juggling postgraduate study with my blogging, reading and reviewing! Whilst I really enjoyed my time away from the restrictions of TBR’s, I know that I will need to be a lot more organized from now on if I’m going to be able to balance my academic and personal reading lists so I’m bringing back my monthly TBR posts, at least for the time being.

Wrap Up | September

Wrap Up | September

Hey everyone!

As usual, this month has gone by in a complete flash. As I’ve been so busy its gone by quicker than usual so I haven’t been able to get as much blogging or reading done as usual. But I did relaunch this blog with an entirely new look so I think that’s a pretty good excuse, right? I’m also so close to meeting my Goodreads reading challenge, which is great because my time to read non-academic books is about to take a hit as of next month!

OWLs Readathon | July Wrap Up

OWLs Readathon | July Wrap Up

Hello friends!

Like all the preceding months of 2018, July had passed by in a blur and it was over before I knew it but this was also a super busy month for me so I’m not surprised! July was the month of moving house, attending YALC last weekend, and preparing for my sessions at Nine Worlds in just under 2 weeks. Because I moved house pretty much bang in the middle of July I wasn’t able to get as much reading done as I wanted to but I still passed my OWLs and achieved an ‘Outstanding’ grade!

Wrap Up | June

Wrap Up | June

Hey friends!

It’s the end of June, the end of Pride, and the second half of the year is almost upon us already. 2018 has been a blur so far, June was no different and July definitely is going to be the same! I read some super great diverse books and participated in some cool reading themes including the Ramadan Readathon, World Ocean Day, and Pride.

OWL Readathon | My Partner Picks My TBR

OWL Readathon | My Partner Picks My TBR

I must have been living under a rock in April because I somehow completely missed out on the OWLs Readathon that happened, so according to the official OWLs letter by McGonaggal I got a Troll grade by default of not showing up. Well done me! But this time I am ready for my OWLs! In order to pass your OWLs, you must finish reading at least 2 books during July (Acceptable), or you can read 3 books to Exceed Expectations, or to receive an Outstanding mark you have to read at least 5 books! Once you pass the OWLs you can then go on to sit your NEWTs in August – so it will be a very busy 2 months for me (typical).
