Quick Lit: June 2016

#harrypotterthon16  #lifeisbetteratthelake  #ihavegreatinlaws

It has been a suuuuuper slow month for blogging and even Facebook and Instagram for me. Sorry to any faithful followers I may have. Can you say "summer break!!!"?  I suddenly have all 4 of us home all day every day (my hubby's a teacher).

And I'm 8.5 weeks pregnant. :) With full-blown, all-day-every-day nausea. :(

So while I'm doing lots of reading (as I describe below), my online presence is lacking. But I'm at 27/36 books for my yearly goal! I hope you're enjoying your summer!

I'm participating in #harrypotterthon16 with some others from the YA Book Club. We thought it would be fun to read all 7 books in the roughly 7 weeks prior to the release of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script. It's my first-ever re-read, and I'm enjoying it SO much!! I can't believe how many things I've forgotten, yet I remember enough big events that other things make sense when they didn't before. 

And while I debated sticking with one-book-a-week and sprinkling other books throughout, I decided to just run with it and read all of them back to back to back. I'll probably have quite the hangover in a week once I've finished the whole series. :-P

I made it through the first 5 books in the last 4 weeks. That's 2690 pages. Luckily I'm reading them all on my Kindle, so my hands haven't been getting cramped up. 

This re-read is beyond fulfilling the "book you've already read at least once" in the MMD Reading Challenge.  :)

Linking up with Anne Bogel's July Quick Lit on the 15th!

  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy! So fun that you're taking part in the harrypotterthon. I haven't yet read them (I know, I'm the worst) but look forward to reading them with my kids when they're old enough :)

  2. I read the first 5 books 10 years ago as part of an English course but never finished them so I want to restart the whole series and watch the movies soon too!
