I’m very excited to be participating in this readathon again! It started on April 1st and runs the whole month until April 30th… Today it’s April 16th which means we are already halfway done with our exams; I thought it was time for a little progress report of how I’ve been doing so far. If you want to learn more about the readathon, you can hear all about it in Book Roast‘s video below!
This is the second year of career choices; last year I managed to complete the O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s for the Magizoologist career, and this year I will be going for the Culinary Sorcerer career. I thought it would be a fitting one as I love cooking and baking in the first place!
Hogwarts subjects needed for the Culinary Sorcery career during the O.W.L.s: Arithmancy, Charms, Herbology & Potions.
So what did I read so far? Find out it my progress report below… Covers of the books read for the different Hogwarts subjects are shown first in the order I read them and then marked green with the date I finished them added in the list that follows.
