Witches, Wizards, and Muggles, Easter has been, the sun is most definitely shining, and the end of exam season is in sight! I would normally be ecstatic to see the back of exams, but I adore this readathon, so I am kind of disappointed that it’s nearly over already. We still have just over a week left, that’s plenty of time to work towards our exam targets and complete some last minute revision!
I have had a slightly slower middle of the month in April. I have been tackling some longer books, and also been re-reading the Beautiful Bastard series, which sadly doesn’t count for anything in terms of OWLs challenges. I finished the first few challenges really quickly, and have only finished one more since the last check-in. That said, I am definitely further on than I was. I have finished a vital subject, I am over half-way through the final challenge that will secure any of the career paths I am interested in, and I then will only have two challenges left to pursue a full house and finish ALL of the OWLs.

I am looking forward to the last few days. I haven’t interacted as much as I would have liked on the twitter tag, mainly because of work, and because I’ve been reading, and because I have been watching Homeland. Fingers crossed that everyone accomplishes all they want and need to for the last sprint in this amazing readathon!!!
