Hello everyone! My favorite readathon is starting tomorrow. I’m talking about the OWLs Magical Readathon hosted by G over at Book Roast. I left a link of her announcement video so you can hear all the explanations from her (because I know I won’t explain it right lol)
Last year I managed to read all 12 prompts for the OWLs, but failed at my NEWTs so I didn’t become a Potioneer ☹️ This year, I’m going for a different career, but going to see if I can complete Potioneer as well. My new is career is:
I’m hoping to accomplish all 12 again this year, but I did just start a new job (my job is considered essential so I have to work) so I will probably just stick to the 8 I need. I do have a book picked out for each prompt so I will get into those now.
Ancient Runes: Heart Rune- heart on the cover or in the title
There is a heart on the playing card.
Arithmancy: Magical qualities of number 2-balance/opposites: read something outside your favorite genre
Fantasy is my favorite but this is one of my favorite authors so it fits 😊
Astronomy: Night classes- read majority of this book when it’s dark outside
Care of Magical Creatures: Hippogriffs-creature with a beak on the cover
Continuing my reread of this series….book 3 will show up later since I didn’t read it in March. Plus the beaks of the swans count.
Charms: Lumos Maxima- White cover
I’m counting this as white lol
Defense Against the Dark Arts: Grindylows- book set at sea/coast
I’ve heard this is a Little Mermaid retelling so I’m guessing this takes place in the sea.
Divination: Third Eye- assign numbers to your TBR and use a random number generator to pick your read
Herbology: Mimbulus mimbletonia- title starts with an M
History of Magic: Witch Hunts- book featuring witches/wizards
Told you book 3 would show up lol
Muggle Studies: book from a perspective of a muggle (contemporary)
Potions: Shrinking Solution- book under 150 pages
Reading the first story (The Magician’s Nephew) in this book which is exactly 100 pages
Transfiguration: Animagus lecture- book/series that includes shapeshifting
Not sure if this book includes it, but I know the series does
I’m also planning on doing the extra training and lectures that G created this year. Luckily they go hand in hand with my OWLs. I’m so excited to start!
Are you participating?? What career are going for? How many prompts do you have to complete? Are you going to try and complete all 12? Let me know in the comments. Happy reading and good luck!!
