Hey Happy Bookworms!
So I finished my O.W.L.s!! 🎉🎉 I actually did way better than I expected & even picked up a couple extra 🙂 So pretty proud of myself all in all – eh I don’t have anything to ramble on about so let’s get into this!
Indigo’s Star by Hilary McKay
I read this for my astronomy class & it’s kinda perfect isn’t it? Stars & all that ✨ These books honestly make my heart float & fill with happiness 🙂
EVERYONE should read them!
Meet Cute by Multiple authors
This was really jarring to read – I got the start of these super cute stories & then as soon as I got into it they would end 😦
Anyway, not all stories are born equal & I definitely enjoyed some of these more than others, I liked the premises of a couple like click and the way we love here but then didn’t exactly like the way they went. Actually, looking back, I’m realising that the stories got better as the book went on & I liked most of the last ones & not many of the first ones 😂 My faves were print shop, 259 million miles (sooooo sad 😓), oomph and the unlikely likelihood of falling in love, although honourable mention to the department of dead love because wow that was a unique idea.
Actually surprised at the range of different scenarios all the authors could come up with 😆 Anyway, I obviously read this for my herbology class!
The Swan Kingdom by Zoë Marriott
After wilder girls fell through for my transfiguration class I was delighted to remember this had shapeshifting in it! So I had the pleasure of rereading my favourite book again (If I haven’t already convinced you to put this on your TBR – GO LOOK IT UP!!)
The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy
Read this lovely book my grandma got me for Christmas for my potions class & it was honestly so sweet & definitely a book I’ll keep around to look at every now and then ☺️
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
After finishing all my classes I thought what better way to finish my O.W.L.s than by finishing HP?! So this is for an extra history of magic class 🙂
What an epic finale!!!!! 🥳
Literally loved experiencing these books again, these last 2 books I haven’t really remembered what happens so it’s been cool kinda re-experiencing them in a way 🙂
My faves of the series have gotta be the goblet of fire and the order of the Phoenix though
The Betrothed by Kiera Cass
And then I still had a little bit of extra time so I decided to read this ARC I kindly got from netgalley for a muggle studies class Publish date: 5th May
