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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
