OWLs Magical Readathon | April Wrap Up

hpbanner

Hello, Happy May! Today I’m going to go over my results of the OWLs Magical Readathon! And then I’ll cover everything else usually in one of my wrap ups.

OWLs Readathon

Firstly, if you’re unfamiliar with the OWLs readathon and would like to know more, check out the announcement video here.

So, I mentioned in my original announcement post that I was going for Alchemist. That meant I had to complete all twelve OWLs. During my mid-month check-in I had completed about three of them. With nine left on the fifteenth of the month, it was gonna be a bit of a challenge.

But, I did it! I completed all twelve OWLs!

Ancient Runes: Retelling

The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy, #1)

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden – Finished! I really liked this one, and gave it a full length blabber.

3.75 stars

Arithmancy: Work written by more than one author

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Finished! Going into this one, the hype kinda daunted me. I did not really expect to like it nearly as much as I did. But man, I was captivated. Seriously enjoyed it.

4 stars

Astronomy: “Star” in the title

StarCraft: Frontline, Volume 1 (Starcaft)

StarCraft: Frontline vol 1 by Richard A. Knaak – Finished! Unfortunately this wasn’t my cup of tea. I couldn’t tell if I wasn’t in the mood for it or if the story just failed to grasp me at all. I played StarCraft a lot when I was a teen, so I know the lore and stuff, so it’s not like I didn’t have context. Just… wasn’t for me, I guess.

2 stars

Care of Magical Creatures: Land animal on the cover

Fruits Basket, Vol. 1

The Meowmorphosis by Coleridge Cook and Franz Kafka – Abandoned
Fruits Basket
vol 1 by Natsuki Takaya – Finished! I realized on April 29th that I wouldn’t have time for another novel. So I subbed this category out for a manga. It was my saving grace, I wouldn’t have completed the challenge without it. I read Fruits Basket back when I was a teenager and I’ve been slowly collecting copies second hand. I had been meaning to reread it, so getting the chance to start was really nice.

4 stars

Charms: Age-line, an adult work

League of Dragons (Temeraire, #9)

League of Dragons by Naomi Novik – Finished! I picked this up on audiobook and finishing it felt like the end of an era. This is the ninth and final book in the Temeraire series, and now I don’t know what to do with myself.

4.5 stars

Defense Against the Dark Arts: Reducto – title starts with ‘R’

Rave Master, Vol. 01

Rave Master vol 1 by Hiro Mashima – Finished! It was so great rereading this. I read it back in high school and haven’t touched it in about a decade. I’m so glad that I picked it up though – the humor still gets me, ahaha.

4 stars

Divination: Set in the future

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

Cinder by Marissa Meyer – Finished! This one I ended up liking about as much as I expected. I figured that I would like it, but not love it, and that’s exactly what happened. It’s intrigued me enough to pick up the second book in the series, so maybe I’ll do that in June or something.

3.5 stars

Herbology: Plant on the cover

Attack on Titan, Vol. 17

Attack on Titan vol 17 by Hajime Isayama – Finished! This manga was the last thing I completed for OWLs. I finished it with two hours to spare – 10pm April 30th. Man, I forgot how much I liked this series. I have volume 18 lined up for May, so hopefully I’ll be able to like, actually remember stuff better between volumes this time. I’m thinking a reread might be necessary soon.

3.5 stars

History of Magic: Published at least ten years ago

Case Closed, Vol. 2

Case Closed vol 2 by Gosho Aoyama – Finished! This series gives me major nostalgia. I wanna say I’ll collect them all but to my knowledge, the series isn’t finished yet. There’s like 60 volumes or something. Ahaha. Nevertheless, I really liked this.

4 stars

Muggle studies: Contemporary

Fangirl

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – Finished! I wrote a review for this one, which went up earlier this month. Thought it was pretty decent!

3 stars

Potions: Next ingredient – sequel

Case Closed, Vol. 3

Case Closed vol 3 by Gosho Aoyama – Finished! I enjoyed this volume just as much as the previous one. With this, I’ve read all I own. So maybe I’ll get more, if I see them second hand. Who knows. But as mentioned above, it’s definitely not going to be something I actively do. Just too many, man.

4 stars

Transfiguration: Sprayed edges or red cover

Dark Matter

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch – Finished! I seriously enjoyed this one. I wrote a mini blabber on it as well. I know Black Crouch has more books out and coming out, and it’s made me wanna read them.

4 stars

And that’s it for the OWLs! Since I got all twelve, I can go after Alchemist (or anything else I choose) in the NEWTs and August. I really enjoyed this readathon, it definitely kept me motivated to read. I can’t wait for part two!


Books

Aside from the twelve OWLs books, I did complete one additional book:

Fool's Assassin (The Fitz and the Fool, #1)

Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb. Man, this series is to the point where it gives me nostalgia, and I haven’t even finished reading it yet! I really liked this opening book to the final trilogy, though I’m absolutely sure it’s going to end up tearing my heart to pieces. As is the norm, I buddy-read this with Zezee, who also liked it. We’ll be picking up book two in June, and then the third and final book sometime after that. And then, I’ll need to find something to fill the void.

4.5 stars


Other Things

  • Something neat is in the works. I’m not quite ready to say what yet, but the prep is coming along nicely. I’ll actually say what it is soon. But man I’m so pumped and had to at least give a tease. 😀

April Currently Reading | ’19

Currently Reading

Hello, happy April! Today will be a slightly delayed Currently Reading post. With all the fantasy bingo stuff that’s been going on, I didn’t realize that I never posted one of these until this morning, whoopsies.

So! My books this month are basically any buddy reads and any of the books I had talked about in my OWLs Readaton TBR. But for right this second, these are the ones I’m buzzing through:

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Dark Matter

I’m reading this for my Transfiguration OWL, which is to read a book with a red cover. I’m listening to it on audio and so far, the narrator is doing a pretty good job.

Here is the Goodreads synopsis:

“Are you happy with your life?”

Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious.

Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits.

Before a man Jason’s never met smiles down at him and says, “Welcome back, my friend.”

In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.

Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.

Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb

Fool's Assassin (The Fitz and the Fool, #1)

This book is not for the OWLs, because I had started it before April 1st, but I’m really, really enjoying it. This is a buddy read that I’m doing with Zezee @Zezeewithbooks and I’m starting to get like… happysad feelings about it. There are only two more Hobb book left in this world after this one. WHAT WILL I DO.

I can’t even post a synopsis for this one though, because the first line of it is a spoiler for a lot of the previous Realm of the Elderlings books. So.. just know that I’m digging it.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy, #1)

This book is for my Ancient Runes OWL, which is to read a Retelling. I might use this for the retelling square in Fantasy Bingo as well, I haven’t decided.

Here is the Goodreads Synopsis:

At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn’t mind—she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, she loves the chilling story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. Wise Russians fear him, her nurse says, and honor the spirits of house and yard and forest that protect their homes from evil.

After Vasilisa’s mother dies, her father goes to Moscow and brings home a new wife. Fiercely devout, city-bred, Vasilisa’s new stepmother forbids her family from honoring the household spirits. The family acquiesces, but Vasilisa is frightened, sensing that more hinges upon their rituals than anyone knows.

And indeed, crops begin to fail, evil creatures of the forest creep nearer, and misfortune stalks the village. All the while, Vasilisa’s stepmother grows ever harsher in her determination to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for either marriage or confinement in a convent.

As danger circles, Vasilisa must defy even the people she loves and call on dangerous gifts she has long concealed—this, in order to protect her family from a threat that seems to have stepped from her nurse’s most frightening tales.

Back-burner books

Back-burner books are the ones I’ve marked as ‘Currently Reading’ on my goodreads, but that I haven’t really touched lately. Usually I have three or four here, but this month I got it down to one:

The Blood Mirror (Lightbringer, #4)

The Blood Mirror by Brent Weeks. I’ve been ‘reading’ this for forever. I’m thinking I’ll pick it up as a focus again in June. April and May are pretty booked as far as reading goes – two month long readathons in a row, and neither of them really fit this one. So June it is. The fifth (and final?!) book in this series comes out in October, so I’ll definitely have it read by then.

No synopsis for this one either, because spoilers, man.


And that’s it! Obviously I hope to read all the books on the OWLs TBR but since I’m not reading them right now, they didn’t make the currently reading list. Pbtbt.

Have you read any of the above? Are you participating on OWLs? Lemme know!

April Wrap Up | ’18

Wrap Up

Hello! Happy Almost-May! This month I actually read books, which is nice.

Books

His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik

His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, #1)This was a reread for me. This series is one of my all-time favorites, I’ve been a fan since I was fifteen years old, so over a decade now. But recently within the last year or two, it has finished up at nine books. And considering it’s been so long since I read it, I decided to reread the entire series. And lucky me, I found it on audiobook narrated by Simon Vance. I’m in heaven, it has been a wonderful experience. 27 year old me is enjoying everything just as much as 15 year old me did.

5/5 stars

Golden Fool by Robin Hobb

Golden Fool (Tawny Man, #2)I finally finished this one – it was wonderful! I think it’s probably my favorite Hobb book yet if not close to my favorite. This was a buddy read with Zezee, and the two of us were both melted by the end of the book. I’m very excited to pick up the third one. I think this series will get a blabber after the third book. There’s just so much to talk about!

5/5 stars

 

Halo: The Fall of Reach by Eric Nylund

Halo: The Fall of ReachThis book was way, way way outside of my comfort zone but I ended up very surprised by how much I enjoyed it. My knowledge of the Halo universe extends to the first three seasons of Red vs Blue and running around for about an hour in multiplayer in Halo 2. I knew nothing of the plot or the lore or anything. My coworker talked me into reading this book and lent it to me to boot, so how could I say no? This book is the first in a trilogy that takes place before the first game, which was perfect for me. It had world building, it has set up, it has fantastic battle scenes (this author is really good at writing them). I just… really liked it, and it’s made me want to read at least the first trilogy if not pick up the game after. Who knows, maybe this is a window to a new love.

4/5 stars

The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson

The Beauty of Darkness (The Remnant Chronicles, #3)This was originally a buddy read with Ace but we kinda fell off the wagon, haha. This is the third and final book in the Remnant Chronicles and will definitely be getting a blabber from me. This book for me was really good and really subpar at the same time. So it got an average-ish rating, but by no means did I simply feel ‘meh’ about it. All the parts I either loved or hated so the review will likely be all over the place. Overall did I enjoy it though? Yes. Ish.

3.5/5 stars

.


Other Things

I saw Avengers: Infinity War yesterday. Somehow I managed to avoid spoilers during the two days it was out before I saw it, so don’t worry I won’t spoil you here. Needless to say though it was very worth going to see it, and seeing all the most recent Marvel movies before watching this one is a must.

I’m going to be a Dungeon Master. Do I know when? No. But! As soon as our current campaign is over, I’m going to DM the next one. Currently I’m reading up on how to do it and how to account for character actions, blah de blah. Wish me luck!

I’m thinking about doing board game related posts. Within the last two or three years, I and a bunch of my friends have gotten really into board games. Like, ‘playing them every single week’ into them. I’m thinking that I’ll right reviews or overviews of new ones, rate how easy they are to pick up for beginners, etc etc. It might be fun. 😀

My cousin had a baby. I’m now an almost-aunt to a little girl! She’s so sweet.

Golden Fool by Robin Hobb

Golden Fool (Tawny Man, #2)I’m buddy reading this one with Zezee, though I’m a big behind I believe. I’m almost done with it and am very much liking it. 😀

 

 

 

 

 

The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E Pearson

His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik

His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, #1)This is my currently audiobook and a reread – this was one of my favorite series through highschool but I only ever read the first four and a half books – the series recently finished at nine books so I want to go back and reread them all in prep for finishing it all 😀

And that’s it! Happy reading!

April Wrap Up | ’17

Happy end-of-April!

This month was bananas. Between coding projects being due and prepping for graduation and starting to plan a honeymoon, my reading has kinda pattered out a bit. Woops. But! I still got some reading done, haah.

This month, I finished one novel and one graphic novel


The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

The Traitor Baru CormorantI seriously enjoyed this book. I wrote a blabber on it, going into all the reasons why I enjoyed this book. It’s a geopolitical fantasy following a main character’s who’s as sharp as a tack as she tries to take down an empire from within. I seriously seriously recommend it (and btw, check out the blabber. Shameless plug! :”D)

5/5 stars

 

 

Saga volume 7 by Brian K Vaughan

Saga, Vol. 7A friend told me today that she can never give a book that makes her feel sad a five star rating. I found that interesting, because that’s the reason this book got such a rating from me. Continuing the Saga series, the volume holds up just as well as the previous ones. I really enjoyed it.

5/5 stars

I’ve finished my project for classes so all my workload has essentially vanished. Just need to put the finishing touches on some stuff today and then that’s it, yo.

Happy reading!

April Currently Reading | ’17

Hello, it’s April and so far, I haven’t been fooled yet. But it’s only mid-afternoon so there’s plenty of time.

Currently, I am reading four books:


The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

The Traitor Baru CormorantThis was on last month’s currently reading as well, and I’m still chugging along with it. This book, I really like it, but I’m finding it to be a very dense read. I’m about two-thirds through it at this point and hope to finish it up by the end of the month. Fingers crossed. This novel is a geo-political thriller set in a fantasy world. But as far as fantasy goes, the fact that the world isn’t real is the only thing fantastical about it. There’s no magic, no monsters, no prophecies… just a different world. But at the same time, it definitely has weird, almost dystopian elements to it. It’s really, really cool. I’m very much enjoying the thing. I have a feeling the end is going to kill me.

The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee

The Gene: An Intimate HistoryI figured it had been a while since I picked up a non-fiction and I had an open credit on my Scribd account, so I snagged this bugger and started listening to it on audio on my way to and from work. So far, I’ve learned that when Darwin submitted his paper on evolution theory, he did so along side another man who had come to the same conclusions after observing the same phenomena on some remote islands in South East Asia. Neither name knew of the other beforehand. It’s funny how things like that happen. Also, Mendel , who came up with the dominant and recessive alleles using pea plants, was a crap test-taker. This book is super entertaining and I’m highly enjoying it.

The Mad Ship by Robin Hobb

The Mad Ship (Liveship Traders, #2)This one was on my list last month too, I think. This book is a chunker. The second book in Hobb’s Liveship Traders trilogy, it continues the story of the Vestrit family as they deal with all the shit that gets thrown at them. It has talking ships and sentient sea serpents and wizardwood and dragons. I’m very much liking this series (though if I’m honest, I think I like Hobb’s Farseer Trilogy a tad more). Buddy reading this with Zezee, we’ve been making our way through this four chapters a week. We’ll get there, we’ll get there.

 

 

Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting by Ed Greenwood

Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (Forgotten Realms)This one’s been on my list for a few months now. I’ve been paging through it slowly as I continue the campaign I’m currently in. I got to level 2 yesterday, woo woo. I’m starting to really dig all the lore and stuff that’s involved in DnD. I’m very happy I’ve been given the opportunity to play.

.


And that’s it! If you’ve read any of these, do let me know your opinion. Happy reading!

April Book Haul

Hello! Welcome to April. I purchased a total of 7 books this past month, and considering I didn’t read any books, well, now my to-be-read shelf is seven books bigger. I don’t even care.

Here they are:

IMG_2931

I’ve decided to start buying the Throne of Glass series, now that I’ve read four of them and have decided I liked it. Also got Uprooted, as Naomi Novik also writes the Temeraire series, one of my favorites ever, so I want to check out the rest of her works too!

The Slab book seen there is actually a compilation of short stories and poetry written by students at my university, and my friend gave it to me as a gift! I thought it was nice. 😀 And the last three are The Thirteenth Tale, Poeny in Love and The Confusion, all purchased for two bucks a pop at a local library sale. The last one, The Confusion, is the second book in the series – I now have it and the third one. STILL HAVEN’T FOUND A COPY OF THE FIRST. Will get there.


And that’s it for this month. Short and sweet. Happy reading!

April Wrap Up, May Currently Reading

April is over! May is about to begin. That means finals are about to begin for those in college. That means my finals are about to begin. That means I’m procrastinating studying by writing this post. Woot!

Overview of Blog Activity for the Month:

And that’s it, honestly. No books-I’ve-read content this month. You’ll see why in a second because I’m awful.

Total posted for April: 13


Reading Overview for the Month:

Books:

*crickets*

THAT’S RIGHT I DIDN’T FINISH ANY BOOKS AT ALL. I have no excuse.

And inspired by Zezee, I’m now going to keep track of articles and other things I read too, because I did actually read stuff this month, it’s just all school-related.

Articles:

The yeast Hsp70 Ssa1 is a sensor for activation of the heat shock response by thiol-reactive compounds by Yanyu Wang, Patrick A Gibney, James D West and Kevin A Morano

I read this for my Cell Biology class and what it comes down to (in super layman’s terms but not so basic that it’s an insult to the authors I hope) is that these authors conducted an experiment to determine whether a specific element of stress-response in a cell could be activated using exposure to a thiol (a compound with a sulfur on it), which is different than the typical methods used to cause the reaction (high temperature, toxins, protein misfoldings, etc). Once they gathered evidence that yes, the cell will activate its stress response when exposed to thiols, they tested to see if disabling the particular element that reacted to the thiols would stop the entire cell from reacting, period. The article concludes that yes, the cell won’t react, and because of that, this very specific element of stress-response (Hsp70 Ssa1) needs to be active for the cell to respond to the stress caused by thiol presence.

I thought this article was a very interesting read, and I hoped I explained it in a way to be understandable yet still accurate.

siRNA-mediated silencing of CDK8 inhibits proliferation and growth in breast cancer cells by Xiao-Yu Li, Qi-Feng Luo, Chuan-Kui Wei, Deng-Feng Li, Lin Fang

This was another really interesting read, also done for my cell biology class. This one was written in a way that was a bit easier for the average person to understand without needing to know a bunch of jargon, so I appreciated that. Again, in super layman’s terms, the authors in this article conducted an experiment to determine if stopping the production of a specific protein involved in transcription (gene reading/copying) could prevent cancer cells from multiplying as effectively. They did this by destroying the gene segment responsible for creating this protein in the first place. They conducted a number of tests to gather evidence in a number of different ways – tested to see if cancer cell production lessened when the gene segment responsible for the protein under study was destroyed, tested to see if cancer cells could move through membranes as effectively with that protein destroyed, etc etc. And they discovered in the end that yes, this protein (CDK8) is very important in the reproduction and movement of cancer cells throughout the body and that developing a treatment to lessen its expression (creation) in a cell could be beneficial to breast cancer treatment.


Progress on 2016 Reading Goals:

Woops.


Progress on Book Riot Read Harder/TBR Jar Challenge:

Woops.


May Currently Reading:

Basically the same as last month, plus a new one. Hopefully after finals I’ll be able to actually finish these damn things.

Life, the Universe and Everything (Hitchhiker's Guide, #3)Leviathan Wakes (Expanse, #1)A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3)

Life, The Universe and Everything by Douglas Adams
Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey
A Storm of Swords by George RR Martin


And that’s it! I’m hoping to actually read this coming month. Until then, happy reading!
