Books Read-a-thon

OWLs Readathon

April 8, 2019
Hogwarts Crest

The OWLs is a magical readathon created and hosted by G from Book Roast. It's based around the exams a student of Hogwarts would take with each exam being a prompt to pick a book. This is my first time participating in this readathon and I'm so excited. Later in the year, I believe there is a follow-up readathon where your TBR is based around the 'exams' you took last time.

Along with the OWLs, this year G also created a careers book to help you choose which exams to take and therefore what books to read. I can't believe the scope of this readathon.

It lasts the entire month so this is my TBR if I was to take each exam. Some of the books I chose fit more than one exam too.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Ancient Runes: A Retelling.

I chose Cinder for this prompt as it's a sci-fi retelling of Cinderella (and I've been meaning to read it for ages). It's been on so many different TBR's and I've had so many people telling me how much I'd love it. I am determined to (try) and get to it this readathon.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Once & Future* by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy

Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy

Arithmancy: Work written by more than one author.

I've been wanting to read Once and Future since it arrived but I just haven't yet had the time! It's a retelling of King Arthur but in space...and with a female lead. I'm so excited about this.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Astronomy: 'Star' in the title.

A pretty self-explanatory reason, that and it's been on my TBR for ages. I get real Hades and Persephone vibes from the synopsis of this. I can't wait to read it.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Pax by Sara Pennypacker

Pax* by Sara Pennypacker

Care of Magical Creatures: Land Animal on the Cover.

Another book that has been on my TBR for agessss. But one I know I'll enjoy. I'm looking forward to a few weeks to enjoy these books. Jon Klassen is one of my favourite illustrators too. I'm interested to see how his work gets incorporated into the story.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon

Charms: Age-Line: Read an Adult Book.

I need to read Lady Audley's Secret so I'm so glad it fits in with one of the prompts! It should be quite an interesting read too. From the discussion about it in class, it seems like a very early thriller with reverse bloody chamber-esque vibes.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Rogue by Julie Kagawa

Defence Against the Dark Arts: Reducto: Title starts with an 'R'.

Rogue, it'd been on my Biannual Bibliothon TBR and I never managed to get to it. Hopefully, I will now. I loved the first book, Talon and just need to carry on. There's four books out now!

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Alex + Ada Volume Two

Alex + Ada Volume Two

Divination: Set in the Future.

I read the first volume of Alex and Ada a few years ago and enjoyed but I never picked up the rest of the series. I got them a little while ago and they fit perfectly with this prompt!

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury

Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury

Herbology: Plant on the Cover.

I was planning to read Song of Sorrow anyway. I couldn't believe it when I realised it had plants on the cover. I adored State of Sorrow and all of Melinda Salisbury's books. I need more to read soon!

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

History of Magic: Published at least 10 years ago.

Dickens certainly qualifies as that. This is another that I need to read for my course but its one that's been on my bucket list of books for a while.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Goldie Vance Volume One

Goldie Vance

Muggle Studies: Contemporary.

I put Goldie Vance on my yearly TBR and need to read it soon. It looks so cute, like a detective version of Lumberjanes. Which coincidently I also need to keep reading.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden

Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden

Potions: Next ingredient: a sequel.

I've already started reading Winter of the Witch and oh my god it's amazing. I can't wait to see how this trilogy gets wrapped up. I met Katherine Arden at her Manchester signing and she was just so sweet. This series is definitely a firm favourite now.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Finale* by Stephanie Garber

Finale* by Stephanie Garber

Transfiguration: Sprayed edges or red cover.

I had to go with Finale for this. I'm taking it with me when Sam and I got to Scotland. I'll be reading it on the drive up and it's probably the only time I'll be quiet that week! This series has been an absolute joy to read and I'm so sad it's coming to a close.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

That's my TBR for the OWLs Readathon.

What are you planning to read?

Any of these?

Thank-you for reading,

Katie x
