My first O.W.L’s tbr April 2020

Holy crap! How is it already April? Does anyone else feel like February was gone as soon as it started and March was 80,000 days long? Lol. This is my first time participating in the O.W.L’s. It was created by G. She puts SO much work and effort into these, it’s incredible!

This readathon has certain careers you can choose from. Each career has reading prompts. If reading prompts aren’t your thing that’s cool too. Feel free to read whatever calls to you.

Along with having their own reading prompts (or Hogwarts classes you require) they also have traits that would fit a person of that career.

I pretty much based my career choice on traits that I thought fit me.

Traits I have

  • Caring
  • Perspective
  • Gentle

So what career did that bring me to you ask? Drum roll please……….. Magizoologist

Sorry, this is a screenshot off my cellphone

April O.W.L’s tbr

The reading prompts to be a Magizoologist are as follows:

  • Care of magical creatures
  • Charms
  • Potions
  • Herbology

Care of magical creatures: Hypogriff – A book with a beak on the cover. (Finished)

  • For this reading prompt I am group reading Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban by J.K Rowling
  • I just realized I am set to do another group read of The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan, which also happens to have a beak on the cover.

Charms: Lumos Maxima – a book with a white cover. (Finished)

  • I actually don’t have many books with white covers I haven’t read so I chose to go with Depression and other magic tricks by Sabrina Beniam
  • I have another option for this course. It’s A Serial Killer’s Daughter by Kerri Rawson. (Finished)

Potions: Shrinking solution – read a book under 150 pages. (Finished)

  • What a terrible time to have read all my novellas. Lol. Okay, for this prompt I’m going to read The Goose Girl and the Artificial by K.M Robinson. My kobo says its 91 pages ;-).

Herbology: Mimbulus Mimbletonia – read a book that starts with the letter “M”. (Finished)

  • For this last prompt I have chosen #Murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil. I don’t think this one is cheating because # isn’t a letter. Lol. I’m not sure why I have so few books that start with a M. *shrug*

O.W.L’s Prompt Roundup

So those are the reading prompts I am doing and the books I’ve chosen that correspond with them. I’d love to know what career you chose and what books you are reading to go along with it.

A couple extra April reads

So I figured I might as well be ambitious and pick some additional training. Out of the options listed I think it could be helpful in my career to have Animagus Training.

Reading prompts for animagus training are:

  • Arithmancy
  • Potions
  • Transfiguration

Arithmancy: Magical qualities of #2 balance/opposites – Read something outside your comfort zone. (Finished)

  • For this prompt I am going to go with Eat, and love yourself by Sweenie Boo. It is a comic which is definitely not a regular genre for me to read. (Finished)

Potions: Shrinking solution – read a book under 150 pages. (Finished)

  • Here we go again….. oh my goodness lol. Okay I have another novella by K.M Robinson, this one is called Along came a spider.

Transfiguration: Anamagus lecture– A book/series that involves shapeshifting. (Finished)

  • Okay, this prompt sounds difficult but it’s really not. I just have to find something I haven’t read yet……. hmmmmm… I’ll go with Pokemon Adventures 3 by Hidenori Kusaka. (Finished)

As you may see in total I have 8 books picked out for this readathon. My issue is I’m a huge mood reader so a lot of the time tbrs tend not to work very well. :/

Did you pick any additional training you thought sounded interesting? Let me know down in the comments below if this is your first time doing this readathon like me, what career you chose and what you would like to read.

Till next time fellow Harry Potter nerds,

Tanya xoxo

    1. O.W.L’s is an exam Hogwarts students in Harry Potter have to take. I have linked G from Book Roast announcement video in this post. She goes over everything 🙂
