O.W.L.s Read-a-thon TBR 2019

Good morning book wizards and witches!

Today I was going to post my book haul for March, but that got pushed back so that I can announce my OWLs read-a-thon TBR!

So, if you don’t know about O.W.L.s you can click on my post from last year HERE, or you can go watch G @ Book Roast‘s video HERE.


OK, so I am really undecided on which Wizarding Career I want to aim for with my NEWTs. I mean, obviously there’s some I don’t care for. But Alchemist is in my YES pile, so all of the prompts anyway. I have nailed it down to five though:

  • Alchemist (all 12 prompts)
  • Auror (Charms, DADA, Herbology, Potions, Transfiguration)
  • Curse Breaker (Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, Charms, DADA, Potions, Transfiguration)
  • Healer (Herbology, Charms, DADA, Potions, Transfiguration and 3 of my choice)
  • Magizoologist (Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Herbology, Potions)

So, at a minimum, I will need to complete:

  • Charms
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts (DADA)
  • Herbology
  • Potions
  • Transfiguration

And I’ll aim for these three as a secondary:

  • Ancient Runes
  • Arithmancy
  • Care of Magical Creatures

If I complete these EIGHT prompts, then I can apply for all my selected careers, with the exception of Alchemist.


So, with all of that in mind, these are my prompts and potential books I will read for the OWLs read-a-thon (in the order(ish) that I will try and read them).



Book to Read

Charms Read an adult book My Not So Perfect Life – Sophie Kinsella
Defence Against the Dark Arts Read a book thats title starts with R Radio Silence – Alice Oseman

  1. We’ve got two of the same books on our OWLs TBR – Saga Vol 2 and Radio Silence 😁. I loved Geekerella, it’s super cute. Renegades was fun too.
    I’ve been wanting to read Ace of Shades but haven’t gotten around to it.
    I hope you enjoy all of the books you manage to get through!

    1. I finished Geekerella on the 2nd! I loved it! I’ve since read all of 3 pages of Radio Silence, but I’ve got some travel time tomorrow so hopefully I can read some more then. Good luck with your readathon too!! (How fun are the OWLs?!)

      1. Wow! Great progress. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. 😊 It’s such a cute book.
        Haha, that’s okay. I’m sure you’ll get through a chunk tomorrow. I’ll actually be starting it on my morning trip to work tomorrow so we’ll both be reading it together.
        Thanks! (Super fun!).
