  1. I wish I had known about this sooner/was in a better place to do a reading challenge this month! I love all things HP. Best of luck with your list! x

  2. Aaahh crud! I’m so bummed I’m just now coming across this D: I’m the world’s slowest reader so I’d never be able to catch up. This looks like sooo much fun though – I hope this happens again another month!
