It’s almost April and you know what that means! It’s time for my second attempt at the O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon. Last year my O.W.L.’s were flawless. My N.E.W.T.s not so much. So, this year I won’t be going after writer/journalist again. I”m going the healer career path. While also going for the add-ons of Animagus Training and Legal Defense of Fantastic Beasts.
That’s 8 books which is more than doable with my reading record this year. (32/100 books so far as of 3/21/20.)
To accomplish my career and side courses I’ll need to accomplish the following.
Herbology: Mimbulus Mimbletonia: A title starting with M
This book is a reread for me, but it was the first book that came to mind when I read the prompt. It’s a really good series that I hope eventaully to reread in its entirety just not next month. lol
Charms: Lumios Maxima: A book with a white cover.
One thing that helps me in readathons is to leave some of the books up to what I feel at the time. This is one of those. Just glancing at myself I can see 6 books that have white covers. I have plenty to choose from and will when the time comes.
Defense Against the Dark Arts: Grindylows: A book set at sea or the coast.
This is another reread for me, but I haven’t read it since I was a teenager. I know Nicholas Sparks if famous for breaking hearts, but I really love some of his books.
Potions: Shrink Solution: A book with less than 150 pages
I swear not every book for the readathon is a reread! There are some I haven’t read yet! BUT of course this is another reread. My copy of the Christmas Carol has about 125 pages. It’s an easy read I can finish in a setting and assure I get my potions O.W.L.
Transfiguration: Animagus Lecture: A book/series with shifters.
This is another reread from a favorite series. It’s not my favorite in the series that is Micah, but Micah was one of the books left with a friend after I moved. We were planning to ship everything soon, but… COVID19. My stuff can live where it is for now.
Arithamancy: Magical Qualities/Balance/Opposites.
I read all over the place, but one genre I don’t read a lot of is sweet adult romance. I’ve read the other books in this series slowly over months, because they’re a nice change of pace but not my favorite by far.
Care of Magical Creatures: Hippogriffs: A creature with a beak on the cover.
I’ve heard really good things about this one and it’s set on my shelf long enough. Time to finally crack it open. lol
History of Magic: Witch Hunts: A Series with a witch or wizard.
Those of you who know me know this one is going to be an HP book. I’m doing a reread through the series this year as I’m in the mood for it. I don’t think I’ll start the next one (Order of the Phoenix) before next month so I can save it for this prompt.
That’s my TBR for next month. If I finish early (Which I might. I’m averaging 10 or 11 books a month this year I might try to add in some of the other prompts too just for the extra O.W.L.s
Are you participating in O.W.L.s Magical Readathon next month?
