I’m use this blog post to keep track of progress on my O. W. L.s for the Magical Readathon.
For each of the prompts below, I’ll add a thumbnail of the book I’m reading (that links to Goodreads) and update my reading status throughout the month. I’ll also color code the prompts to correspond with the prompt status. Green will mean done. Orange is in-progress. Normal text color (I think this is grey?) means that I haven’t started yet.
Charms (age-line: read an adult book) –>
History of Magic (published at least 10 years ago) –>
Muggle Studies (contemporary) –>
Ancient Runes (retelling) –>
Arithmancy (work written by more than one author) –>
Astronomy (“star” in the title) –>
Care of Magical Creatures (land animal on the cover) –>
Defense Against the Dark Arts (Reducto: starts with an “R”) –>
Divination (set in the future) –>
Herbology (plant on the cover) –>
Potions (next ingredient: sequel) –>
Transfiguration (sprayed edges or red cover) –>
There’s an awesome Harry Potter themed readathon coming up in April! You can check out the original video and get all the details here. It’s modeled off the twelve main subjects tested on during the Hogwarts O. W. L. exams in the Harry Potter books. Oh man, this is so geeky and so cool. I love it! I’m so excited that I dropped everything to make a TBR. (Good thing I’m up extra early this morning…)
Readathons are a super fun way to bust through unread ebooks I’ve been collecting on my Kindle. So, I tried to limit myself to create my TBR from just those books and the books on my first half of 2019 TBR. I also found out that the next round of Tome Topple is coming up in April as well. So, I tried to pick a mix of short books that I can read quickly and books over 500 pages that qualify for Tome Topple.
Here’s what I came up with for my TBR:
The link in the photo above goes to my Magical Readathon Goodreads shelf so you can get more details on these books and/or add them to your own TBR.
Here’s the detail on the prompts, what they translate to, and what book I picked for each:
Of these, Leviathan Wakes, Our Dark Duet, and The Queen of the Tearling all qualify for Tome Topple. So, I’ll be saving those to read during the Tome Topple dates, which should be announced soon.
I probably won’t do all these tasks, and I don’t plan to attack them in any particular order. I’m not going after a specific wizarding career, yet. Instead, I’m going to keep it casual and use this as a general TBR for April.
Let me know in the comments if you plan on participating in this readathon (or in the April Tome Topple), and let me know what’s on your TBR, especially if you’re also planning to read any of these books next month!
