Wrap Up | April 2018

WrapUp12:17

Hello and welcome to the end of April, boy does time fly. I am looking forward to next month though. I feel like it is going to finally begin to feel like Spring.

This month has been a ton of fun reading wise. I actually read every book I out on my TBR, which never happens. I also took part in the Magical Readathon OWLs Exams, you can see my TBR:  TBR | Magical Readathon OWLs Exams and my Wrap Up:____. It was a ton of fun and I really enjoyed myself. I got to books I have been putting off.

While I have a whole wrap up with those books separately I wanted to also share the books that I read that did not fit in any of those magical categories.

OWLs Examination

Wow, this was such a fun readathon, I can honestly say I hope there is another one that is organized similarly in the future. This month long readathon was wonderful. I felt challenged, but not overwhelmed. It was perfect! Without further delay here is my wrap up!

This was such a successful readathon for me. Not only did I meet my requirements for my profession, potioneer, but I was also able to get an extra OWL examination under my belt to gain the best score, an Outstanding.

Did you take part in this readathon?

Would you take part if there was another one?
