Harry Potter Month Readathon TBR

Faith of GeekyZooGirl and Micheline of Lunar Rainbow Reviews are hosting the Harry Potter Month in July and I'm on board! People can compete in the House Cup by accumulating house points. I'll be earning house points by posting about Harry Potter among other Harry Potter related activities! This year I will be representing Hufflepuff!

As part of Harry Potter Month, Faith and Micheline have come up with a readathon. You can read all the details here.  I thought I would put together a list of possible books for a TBR. I'm not sure how much extra reading I'll be doing this month, as I'm hoping to get through a couple Harry Potter books as well.

  1. A Darker Shade of Magic is fantastic, and so perfect for an HP-themed readathon! I'm currently reading the last book, A Conjuring of Light. Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Cycle is one of my favorite series ever, so I'm thrilled to see The Raven Boys on your list! :D

  2. I'm with Lee^^ both on ADSoM and The Raven Cycle so I approve of both of those too :D

    Dealing with Dragons is lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!!

  3. You are making AMAZING progress on this so far! Don't forget to stop by and leave a comment with your finished books so your points definitely get added for Hufflepuff - you can stop by at intervals and just list any books you've finished since your last update, you don't need to wait until the end of the month if you don't want to.

    You've got some great titles on here too - you can't go wrong with Rick Riordan, and Hitchiker's is hilarious! I ended up loving The Raven Boys a lot more than I expected too.
