The House Cup Reading Challenge | Wrap Up

As you may remember, I enthusiastically (and a tad foolhardily) signed up for the House Cup Reading Challenge – if you don’t remember, you can find my sign-up/tbr post here! The readathon lasted from Sunday 15th October until Sunday 12th November and was hosted by Lauren of Live, Love, Read/@BetweenDPages; Alex of Book Daisy Reviews/@booksydaisy; Kelsey of Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf/@Kelsenator; and Erica of Escape Under the Cover/@slychica08. The aim was to read some books based on the challenges which were Hogwarts-themed!

You earnt points based on the number of books you completed which fulfilled the Main and Bonus Challenges (20 points and 10 points respectively) and then reported your points to your House’s Head Girl at the end of the readathon. Using the hashtag #housecupreadingchallenge on Twitter also earnt you 1 point per tweet (limited to 20 points total).

I periodically (read: when I remembered) updated a progress thread via Twitter which you can find here. And let’s see how many challenges I managed to complete, shall we?

The House Cup Reading Challenge | Sign Up & TBR

Guess what everyone? I haven’t learnt from any of my mistakes in the past few months (don’t join in on multiple readathons and readalongs, folks) and I’m enthusiastically signing up for the House Cup Reading Challenge. That’s right, it’s a Harry Potter themed readathon… so you can see why I had an issue saying no, right?

The readathon is taking place from Sunday 15th October until Sunday 12th November and is hosted by Lauren of Live, Love, Read/@BetweenDPages; Alex of Book Daisy Reviews/@booksydaisy; Kelsey of Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf/@Kelsenator; and Erica of Escape Under the Cover/@slychica08. The aim? Read some books based on the challenges which (you guessed it) are Hogwarts-themed! You earn points based on the number of books you complete which fulfill the Main and Bonus Challenges (20 points and 10 points respectively) and then report your points to your House’s Head Girl at the end of the readathon. Using the hashtag #housecupreadingchallenge on Twitter will also earn you 1 point per tweet (limited to 20 points total). Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
