This is my first time trying out a reading challenge – being a total Potterhead I couldn’t resist this!
I saw this on Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf and will be joining Team Ravenclaw under the oversight of my head girl Alex from BooksyDaisy
Hogwarts Student Questionnaire

Above is my recent library haul – so I will be working my way through these, alongside many on my shelves which are waiting to be read for the main challenge. I also have quite a long list of ARCs I need to read…
I will update the list below as I read!
First Year: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. This was brilliant, will review in full soon!
Second Year: How to Catch a Witch
by Abie Longstaff. This was an adorable MG read with a stuttering protagonist – going to try to get number 2 which has just been published.
Gryffindor: Read a book with an epic hero/heroine
Beetle Boy by M.G. Leonard
– Baxter and the other beetles are the most epic heroes and heroines I know! (Complete!)

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab and A Conjuring of Light

Death Eater: Read a book told from the POV of a villain
Platform 9 3/4: Read a book that features travel
A Story Like the Wind by Gill Lewis Complete! Amazing, important book about the journey many refugees face.

How is everyone getting on with the Reading Challenge?
Have you any suggestions for books I could read to meet the requirements for each category?
