Magical Readathon TBR

Hello readers! I’m back during these difficult times to share with you my tentative TBR for the Magical Readathon or O.W.L.s of 2020!

It’s my first time doing this readathon, so I’m pretty excited! I chose Culinary sorcerer for my Career, you know, because there’s food!XD

For my career, I need to complete Arithmancy, Charms, Herbology and Potions (Oh no, please, not Snape!!)

 

Arithmancy: A book outside your favorite genre

18749490

Wool

Usually, I don’t read dystopian/post-apocalyptic novels.

Charms: a book with a white cover

43466612._SY475_

Goddess of the hunt

This cover is great!!

Herbology: a book that starts with “M”

39321949._SY475_

Mountain of the dead

Another book of the World’s scariest places series!

Potions: a book under 150 pages.

23551577

Clockwork Gold

I don’t have a lot of books under 150 pages…

 

And that’s my TBR! Do you participate this year?

1 star, 5 star, meme, wrap up

Wrap Up: February 2020

Hello readers! How are you?

We have finally the rain back, after 70 days without a single drop from the sky, sigh.

In February, thanks to the Demonathon too, I manage to read 11 books!

5 stars:

This is going to hurt is a solid 5 stars for me! I laughed, I cried and I learned a lot of medical things that scared the hell out of me.

Ella, The slayer surprised me! It’s a retelling of Cinderella set in 1918, with Ella who slays “zombies” with a katana. Weird but interesting and funny, I’ve loved the relationship between all the characters!

3 stars:

Midday Moon 1: thanks Kindly Unlimited for all this yaoi manga! This has a lovely (and angst) story, and look at the cover!!

L’origine delle specie (On the origin of the species) well… I’m happy to have read another classic, but honestly, it was too long.

Guns of liberty is the first ARC I received through BookSirens. I fell in love with the cover, but was boring in fact.

Don’t go there: I didn’t know the Dyatlov Pass Mystery until I discover the series by Jeremy Bates. I began with this book because it’s non-fiction written by a Russian author. It’s interesting, but in needs of a good editor.

Greenglass House is a middle-grade mystery, set in a beautiful house full of secrets, it caught my attention but then was predictable.

2 stars:

Replay: An ARC of a yaoi manga I received thanks to Edelweiss, it was cute, but with a serious problem of format.

Paved with good intentions: it’s so similar to Good Omens, in particular to Aziraphale and Crowley, but without all the English humour and with chapters more suitable to a tv show.

Ready player one: well, surprise, I didn’t like a superhyped book! I didn’t understand most of the references, but I admit that the world was interesting.

1 star:

28421564._SX318_

Ally Rose la quinta vittima (sorry, they didn’t translate it!) it’s an urban fantasy full of s*x scenes, love triangle, love/hate relationship and, unfortunately, with a lot of typos.

And that was my reading month!

How was yours? Have you read some good book?
