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:
- 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).

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!
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?!)

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!).
