O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon 2019: Sign Up #OWLsReadathon2019

It’s that time of the year again!! I first discovered the Harry Potter themed Magical Readathons last year, all hosted by the wonderful Book Roast. I joined the O.W.L.s late last year, so I’m so excited to be joining this April with everyone else! She also has some surprises in store this year as she has designed the most gorgeous guide and we will all be reading ourselves to a magical career of our choice! ❤ Find out more in her video below.

I’m very excited to be joining this readathon again, which is starting April 1st and will run the whole month until April 30th. I also earned five extra days for the Charms exam with a previous Christmas readathon hosted last year… Which basically means I can start reading my Charms title on March 27th already and have extra time for the other ones.

I have said it before but the wizarding career guide is so freaking gorgeous! There are so many careers to choose from and I had a hard time just choosing one… So I’ve decided to narrow it down to two, try and read all the O.W.L.s for both and pospone the decision until August when the next N.E.W.T.s readathon is hosted. So which careers did I pick? It was really REALLY hard narrowing it down, but in the end it’s between Librarian and Magizoologist for me. Librarian because I love books and I would love to spend my time in a magical library. And Magizoologist because I love animals and I would love travelling the world seeing all those magical creatures.

O.W.L.s needed for each career:

Librarian: Ancient Runes // Arithmancy // Defense Against The Dark Arts // History Of Magic // Transfiguration

Magizoologist: Care Of Magical Creatures // Charms // Herbology // Potions

Sadly none of the O.W.L.s overlap, so this means I will have to read at least 9 books in total to be able to still have a choice between both careers when the readathon ends. So what will I read for each prompt? A tentative TBR:

# LIBRARIAN #

# Ancient Runes: Retelling… Circe by Madeleine Miller or Song Of Sacrifice by Janell Rhianonn


# Arithmancy: Work written by more than one author… An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen or The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows


# Defense Against The Dark Arts: Reducto: title starts with an ‘R’… Release by Patrick Ness


# History Of Magic: Published at least 10 years ago… The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield or Murder On The Links by Agatha Christie


# Transfiguration: Sprayed edges or red cover…The Ninth Life Of Louis Drax by Liz Jensen or  How To Walk Away by Katherine Center

# MAGIZOOLOGIST #

# Care Of Magical Creatures: Land animal on the cover… The Wolf Border by Sarah Hall


# Charms: Age-line: read an adult work… basically the next pending adult ARC I need to read (and there are lots xD) Most likely Wolfhunter River by Rachel Caine as I’m dying to continue the series.


# Herbology: Plant on the cover… The Murmur Of Bees by Sofia Segovia or Little Darlings by Melanie Golding


# Potions: Next ingredient: sequel… The Dare by Carol Wyer or Final Betrayal by Patricia Gibney

This leaves three other subjects I don’t need to continue with either careers… But if I have time I might still read a book for each prompt so I can collect all twelve O.W.L.s. Titles I might read for these:

# Astronomy: ‘Star’ in the title… The Map Of Salt And Stars by Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar
# Divination: Set in the future… Across The Universe by Beth Revis
# Muggle Studies: Contemporary… The Silver Ladies Of Penny Lane by Dee MacDonald


Are you joining the challenge? Have you read any of the titles on my TBR? Any books I should make a priority?

    • It’s so much fun! Especially since this year she has invented the different magical careers and you can pick your favorite to fit your own goals… And a month is quite doable with most careers having 3-5 books max. 🙂
