Did I Pass My Classes? The Magical Readathon: Orilium Autumn Equinox 2022 Wrap-Up!

Hello, friends! It’s time to wrap up my first year at Orilium and I gotta tell you, I’m shook that I was able to end my semester on a high note because I was for sure certain I’d failed. Thankfully, failure was not the case and not only did I manage to complete my classes, but I was also able to complete more quests. Again, no one is more surprised than I am that this happened but I guess life do be like that? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Check out my Spring Equinox Wrap-Up!

✨ Massive shout-out to G @ Book Roast who did an incredible job preparing everything for us. I’m still in awe of all the effort that she’s put into this and I can’t wait to return next year! ✨

MY REVIEW

Additional Quests

I somehow managed to read books that fit quite a few of the additional quests, even though I doubled up two of the books I read for my classes for two quests. I don’t think that’s against the readathon rules but if someone knows (cos I can’t remember) please let me know! πŸ˜‚

Read a book over 5 days

Read a book featuring/ mentioning a game

Buddy read a book

Read the most recent book you’ve gotten or added to TBR

More than one animal on the cover or title

Book with potions/poison

Read a historical fiction book

Tier Update: From Assistant to Revered

I started the Autumn Equinox as an Assistant with 110 guild reputation points and by the end of this semester, I earned an additional 50pts for a successful term and an additional 70pts in total for all the quests I completed. That leaves me with a total of 230pts bringing me up from Assistant to Revered! πŸ₯³


That’s it from me, folks! Did you join The Magical Readathon too? If you did, how was your first year at Orilium? Was this semester all you wanted or did you wish you had more time? I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to come back next year! 😍

  1. This sounds very complicated every time I read about it lol but also so fun and engaging. I love the continued character that you have with it to make it more connecting, if that makes sense? Congrats on leveling up, you rogue 😁

    • I have to admit that it took me a couple years of seeing people do this before I finally got it and decided to join myself. Once it clicks it defo becomes less complicated and it’s a lot of fun! πŸ˜ƒ The character creation is fun and I love building upon the character as well! I think some people even go further and create stories for their characters but I’m happy like this, haha!

  2. I had so much fun with the Magical Readathon as well! Congrats on passing all your classes 😊 I also fulfilled all the prompts for my Archmage Calling! I wanted to read The Dragon’s Promise for a quest as well, but it didn’t quite work out πŸ˜„

    • I’m in awe of how much detail G puts into the Magical Readathon! Congrats on passing your classes as well! I can’t wait to come back next year 😍 I hope you enjoy The Dragon’s Promise whenever you get to it (there were a lot of books that I had “planned” for the readathon and everything ended up completely different when it came down to it, lol. I’m such a mood reader)! πŸ˜‚
