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!
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:
- Defence Against the Dark Arts (DADA)
And I’ll aim for these three as a secondary:
- Ancient Runes
- 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).
