I knew when I made that TBR that I wasn’t going to be able to stick to it. I may have still managed to pass some classes though! Let’s take a look and see.
So my TBR as I recall posting it:
- Dragon Heart
- Wolf Hall
- The Dinosaur Lords
- A Land so Wild
- Prophets of the Ghost Ants
- Memories of Silk and Straw
- Witcher Book 1
- The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
- Emergency Skin
Which on its face doesn’t look bad! But let’s see what I actually got read and how it matches the prompts:
- Ancient Runes : Heart on the cover or in title
Nope – nothing matches, sad day
- Arithmancy : Read something outside your favorite genre
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid totally fits this one!
- Astronomy : Read the majority of a book while it’s dark outside
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid also works here as I stayed up late in the night hiding under my covers reading this (my newborn is in a bassinet next to the bed, I don’t want to wake her, don’t judge me!)
- Care of Magical Creatures : Creature with a beak on the cover
- Charms : White Cover
Technically The Vagina Bible by Jennifer Gunter is almost entirely white – so a win here as well.
- Defense Against the Dark Arts : Book set at the sea/coast
I don’t think I can stretch anything for this one
- Divination : Assign numbers to your TBR and use a random number generator to pick one
Definitely didn’t get to that one
- Herbology: Title starts with an M
- History of Magic : Features a witch or wizard
If Jedi count as Space Witches/Wizards then I read so many Star Wars comics. So. Many. Star. Wars. Comics.
- Muggle Studies : Contemporary book
Undercover Bromance can be considered contemporary – though I disliked it immensely, I read it!
- Potions : Book under 150 pages
I read the one I had picked for this! Emergency Skin by N.K. Jemison was great – totally recommend that one!
- Transfiguration : Book/series that includes shapeshifting
This one was one of the first I finished and I was the most worried about it – pssshh, silly me. Silver Silence by Nalini Singh has an adorable bear shapeshifter as the male lead.
So I achieved some prompts and while I don’t know what exactly I qualify for now, if anything I’m please I at least got some of these done because I am super bad at TBRs.
