“Eliza Mirk is the kind of name you give to the creepy girl who clings to her ex-boyfriend for weeks after he’s dumped her because she refuses to accept that he hates her guts.”First line in Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
Hi, guys. Today I’m giving you the final update on my progress in the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon, and I’m doing it through WWW Wednesday. It’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and it’s meant to give you all a little insight into my reading this week. I’ll answer the 3 questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish?
- What do you think you’ll read next
What did you recently finish?
I finished Dark Matter, and now I have another book for the “Popular books I didn’t like”-list. When I updated you last week, I expected to give it 3 stars but the ending bumped it down to 2. It wasn’t as spectacular as I had hoped it would be with such an interesting subject matter. Also still hated the MC. At least it gave me the O.W.L. in Arithmancy.
I also finished Eliza and Her Monster by Francesca Zappia which was a much better experience. I gave it 4 stars and even though it couldn’t compete with my love for Fangirl, it’s still an amazing book. It does a good job of portraying anxiety and doesn’t shy away from showing all the ugly sides as well. This one made sure I got my O.W.L. in Muggle Studies.
Finally, I had to find something for Potions which is a book below 150 pages. I read The Ash-Born Boy by Victoria Schwab which is a prequel novella to The Near Witch which I also read this month. Not really going to rate and review it. Just one I highly recommend if you’ve read The Near Witch.
What are you currently reading?
Guys… I’m reading Harry Potter. I didn’t know how much I needed a reread until I started it. It’s making me want to cry with how good it feels to be back. I’m pathetic lol. I’m even reading my seriously old Danish version so the nostalgia is real! It’s also making me realize that this book was translated in 1999… there are some expressions in there you would never hear today and it’s making me laugh. I’m reading it for my O.W.L. in Astronomy which is going to be my final one.
What do you think you’ll read next?
O.W.L.s Magical Readathon might be over but luckily that means that Wyrd and Wonder is starting! The first book I’m going to start is Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth. As the readathon is over, I’m going back to reading two books at a time so I’ll also be starting the audiobook for The Merciful Crow by Maragret Owen.
