*I am very excited about O.W.L.s 2019! It’s readathon time again which means I will read lots of books. Or, at least I plan to. 😂As always, I’ll link the books to Goodreads so that you can add the ones that interest you to your own TBR lists.
This is the second time I am participating in the O.W.L.s readathon, and I am beyond excited for it. I might even be fangirling a bit.😂
This year G has really outdone herself. She has created a FREE pamphlet with wizarding careers in it…GUYS….she blesses us with this. Without G, the wizarding world wouldn’t be the same. I’ll link her YouTube video below so you can check out all the details and get access to the free pamphlet.
If you like Harry Potter at all you won’t want to miss this readathon! Oh, and the community is awesome! The Magical Readathon has a dedicated Twitter page that you can find here. —> Magical Twitter
If you’re on Instagram you can use #magicalreadathon2019
That’s where I’ll be spending most of my time, basically because I forget to check my Twitter…..
Ok, on to the actual list of books I want to read.
If you watched the video then you know that there are twelve prompts for the O.W.L.s 2019 Readathon. The wizarding career you choose determines how many O.W.L.s you have to complete to pass
For instance, I chose the Librarian career, because it sounds awesome and way cooler than you think. To pass my O.W.L.s for this career I need to read 5 books. The prompts are very easy. It’s the books that we pick that determine how much effort we will have to put in.
O.W.L.s Prompts for the Librarian Career are:
- Ancient Runes (A retelling): Cress, by Marissa Meyer
- Arithmancy (A work written by more than one author): Illuminae, by Jay Kristoff and Aime Kaufman
- Defense Against the Dark Arts (Reducto: Title starts with “R”): The Raven Boys, by Maggie Stiefvater
- History of Magic (Published at least 10 years ago): Angel’s Blood, by Nalini Singh
- Transfiguration (Sprayed edges or red cover): Sepulchre, by Kate Mosse
Of course, like the overachiever I am, I picked books for the other seven O.W.L.s prompts:
- Charms (Age-line: Read an adult work): The Final Empire, by Brandon Sanderson
- Divination (Set in the future): The Pale Dreamer, by Samantha Shannon
- Herbology (Plant on the cover): Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi
- Potions (Next ingredient: sequel): Siege and Storm, Leigh Bardugo
- Care of Magical Creatures (Land animal on the cover): The Winter Horses, by Philip Kerr
- Astronomy (“Star” in the title): Map of Salt and Stars, by Zeyn Joukhadar
- Muggle Studies (Contemporary): The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- And then an extra one because it’s me: Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert
As you can see, I over plan everything.
Creating my O.W.L.s 2019 TBR was fun and challenging! I spent several hours working out all the details. But it was so fun. Reading, and
I hope you’ll join us for the O.W.L.s readathon 2019! It was so much fun last year. This year is going to be even better!
