I know it’s April so I’m already late to the party (surprise)… But after quite a bit of debating I’ve finally decided to join the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon this year! I’ve been keen on joining since I first heard about it last year and I’m seriously impressed by the amount of amazing work that has gone into making this readathon a possibility. Exhibit A are the career pages in the booklet that G made–the artwork is stunning! Here’s the announcement video from G’s channel about the readathon in case you’re interested and want to join in too (it’s never too late right?)!
Anyway, before I get off track… I was waffling on what career to choose for the readathon and I was stuck between Culinary Sorcerer (I mean how much fun does that sound?!) and Trader of Magical Tomes (which is just a big duh) but thanks to a Twitter poll, I’m going for: Trader of Magical Tomes! Very exciting times friends…
There are four O.W.L.s I have to complete in order to achieve this: Ancient Runes, Charms, History of Magic and Transfiguration.
Heart rune – a heart on the cover or in the title
lumos maxima – white cover
history of magic:
Witch hunt – books featuring witches/wizards
Animagus lecture – book/series that features shape shifting
I struggled a bit with this one… I don’t know that I already have books with shape shifting, aside from the ones mentioned below… Do you have any suggestions maybe?
Gumiho: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho or Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
I don’t know yet if I want to do any of the extra courses that we can take but I guess we’ll come to that when I complete the O.W.L.s and if I have the time/energy! I’m feeling pretty optimistic that I can make it through the O.W.L.s successfully seeing as I only have four prompts to complete… Fingers crossed I haven’t just jinxed myself 😂 I’m really excited to take part in such a huge readathon though! Slytherin represent! 🐍
