There were some changes to my original TBR, I found myself in an Agatha Christie mood and ended up reading four of them. I will definitely be writing reviews for all the books on this list, which should be appearing throughout September.
With the news that there is a new instalment winging its to us by owl post in October I can’t wait to join in. These readathons have been so much fun and the community that has built up around them is amazing.
Did you participate in the NEWTs? How did you do? Have you read any of these books?
Until next time Happy Reading!
