Completed my Astronomy course with Binti for an Outstanding grade.

For such a short novella, I feel like I need to think on it a bit to decide how I really feel about it & if I will be continuing on with the series. For now I‘m giving it 3⭐️

What an unexpected delightful surprise! I got this one in an owlcrate box ages ago and it‘s sat on my shelf forever. Decided to pick it up for my A in DADA and really enjoyed it. Adventure, pirates, sassy retorts. This was nothing mind-blowing, but it was a whole lot of fun (4⭐️). I will definitely be picking up the sequel.

Finished this for my A in Arithmancy for #newtsreadathon2019. Book 3/33.

4⭐️ This dealt with some serious topics, and was quite heavy at time (made me choke up), but also had quite a bit of humor. Important story for sure that I really enjoyed. My one critique would be I wish the author & editor didn‘t allow the dialogue to swing back and forth between normal quotation marks and using colons, as I found it quite distracting.

I wanted to like this book so much more than I did. The first half dragged on and on, and definitely could have benefitted from some additional editing. The story picked up in the second half though, and by the end I was definitely invested in what happened to Bo and the rest of Berkshire Academy.

This book has been on my shelves forever because I thought it was a fae story. I was wrong. It‘s a beautiful tale of love and family with a delightful addition of magical realism. I loved it.

#OWLsReadathon2019: Care of Magical Creatures (land animal on the cover) complete. ⭐️⭐️.5

I wish the pages within were as stunning as the cover. For a novel under 300 pages the story seemed to drag on and repeat itself. I did enjoy the final few chapters of the book‘s climax, though I won‘t be picking up book 2.
