March 2022 Reading Wrap Up

For me, March is the month the Irish take over. The books I read in March are solely, if not then mostly, written by Irish authors in honour of St Patrick’s Day.

I also take part in the Irish Readathon each March, which is more of an incentive to discover new Irish books and Irish authors.

So, was my shelf only decked out in green?

March 2021 Reading Wrap Up

One of my favourite things about March is the Irish Readathon. It’s a month long readathon giving me the chance – nay, the EXCUSE – to focus on Irish authors and Irish books. You can guarantee I took that opportunity with both hands.

I also hosted the NSFWathon throughout March, and fitting books into the prompts for both readathons was a little easier than I expected it to be. But, I was plagued by a strong reading slump at the start of the month – could I overcome it?

OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 TBR

Andy Williams may have sung It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year about Christmas, but for bookworms and Harry Potter fans this song also applies to April.

April is the month of the OWLs, part of the Magical Readathon run by G from Book Roast. This readathon is set in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and throughout the month of April students complete their OWLs by reading books fitting the prompts. It’s as if you were in the Great Hall taking the exams yourself.

In August, you can complete your NEWTs and aim for a career in the Wizarding World.  I’m concentrating on a career too, and I’ve already picked it out.

I filmed a TBR for my (brand new) Book Tube channel, but let’s share my TBR here too. I’ve also put a list together of books that I don’t need, but could get around to and try to get as many OWLs as I can.

Anything to take my mind off what’s happening in the world right now.

Irishathon TBR Ideas

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Our national holiday is the perfect time to get a little bit of green into your reading. Luckily, there’s a great readathon happening at the moment to help you out.

The Irishathon is a month long readathon run by Aoife (not me), Elaine, and Leanne. I would love to say I’m taking part, but unfortunately the announcements completely passed me by. So, instead I’m going to share some books I would read were I taking part. Who knows, this could be some inspiration for you.
