I've never taken part in the OWLs before but I have in the NEWTs. Both are Read-a-thons hosted by G from Book Roast. The idea is you pick one of the careers she's created based on the world of Harry Potter, there are then subjects you need to 'pass' to qualify for that career. Each subject has a prompt attached to it that helps you pick which book to read. You pass a subject by reading each book.
This year G also introduced a new part, courses, seminars and training. These are extra prompts you can fulfil if you manage to read everything for your career.
This year I picked Magizoologist for my career.
The Girl and the Dinosaur by Sarah Hughes
Potions: Read a book under 150 pages.
I struggled to find a book to fit with this prompt. A lot of my shorter books are now down at Sams, then I remembered I have this. I'd been eyeing up The Girl and the Dinosaur for a while and finally picked it up. It's absolutely stunning and fits this prompt very well!
Maid-Sama! Volume One & Two
Herbology: Mimbulus Mimbletonia - A book that starts with an 'M'.
I've been trying to read more of my manga collection of late. Considering that I'm going to be spending a lot of April working on assignments I've tried to pick some slightly easier reading. I've been dying to read this series for a while, it looks equal amounts cute and funny. Something I think we all need every now and again.
This book also counts for the Merepeople Linguistics course.
Fence Volume One
Charms: Lumos Maxima - A book with a white cover.
In line with the idea of reading slightly easier books, I picked Fence volume one for this prompt. I've been seeing this series everywhere and keep being recommended it. Going to try and use this time to get through my graphic novels too.
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Care of Magical Creatures: Hippogriff - A book with a creature with a beak on the cover.
I can't tell you how many different TBRs An Enchantment of Ravens has been on. It's in my bullet journal from the list of books I've been wanting to read from 2018. I love the sound of this, I just haven't yet picked it up.
Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman
Dragon Tamer Training: Read an extra book with dragons.
I've read one of Rachel Hartman's series before and adored it. The Seraphina series was one of my favourites. Tess of the Road I purchased as soon as it was out. However, I just haven't yet read it. This one is in the same world as the Seraphina series, instead following her younger sister, Tess.
The Near Witch by V.E. Schwab
Legal Defence of Fantastic Beasts Seminar: History of Magic & Care of Magical Creatures.
I've already got Care of Magical Creatures by my career but for History of Magic, you need to read a book with witches. I picked The Near Witch, V.E. Schwab's first book that's recently been republished. I've been desperate to read it and just haven't had the time to pick it up and fully enjoy it.
That's my TBR for the OWLs Readathon.
What are you planning to read?
Any of these?
