I couldn’t pass up a chance to get my O.W.L’s! One of my favorite Youtubers G at Book Roast is hosting a Magical Readathon this month on her channel and over on Twitter (@MagicalReadthn) in which you read for your O.W.L.s
I have a total of eight that I’m going for and I’ll add more if any of the other books I read fit into the topics. (I know. I know…)
Transfiguration- Read a book with a Cat on the Cover
I’ve wanted to read this for a while and apparently this cat is magical and talks!
Muggle Studies- Muggle Non-Fiction
A memoir in pizza. This guy apparently tasted cheese pizza from every pizza place in New York City or something. I don’t know. I wouldn’t have been able to stop at cheese.
History of Magic- Read an Historical Fiction
Also jump up and down when you get approved for an arc about Hemingway and Martha Gelhorn from one of your favorite writers!
Herbology: a book with a nature related word on the cover
This is on my Read me in the Spring Time list anyway!
Charms: Read a Fantasy
I’ve been so insanely excited for this one!
Care of Magical Creatures- Read a book with an animal on the cover
A snake counts right? Especially because I think this one is the snake…
Okay, seeing as how I love sci-fi I currently have any one of a number of options for this one but it will probably be Defy the Worlds by Claudia Gray. The sequel to Defy the Stars which will hopefully not only meet the sci-fi requirement but fulfill my huge AI kick right now.
Arithmacy- Read a book with a number on the cover
I’m excited to finally read this one!
Defense against the Dark Arts: About or including some sort of secret society
Mostly what I know about this one is it’s about an alien assassin so I would imagine he wants that to stay a secret.
And lastly there are the O.W.L options that I couldn’t find picks for…
Ancient Runes: Read a book with a symbol on the cover
Divinations: A book that features a prophecy
Alchemy: a book about potions
Hopefully something I pick up this month will have the required elements or I might not go full Hermione and just read the ones I’ve already picked!

This sounds fun….I’m gonna have to think about these!
I figure this way I can finally tell myself I’ve taken the O.W.Ls at least!
I can’t wait to read Defy The Worlds!! I haven’t read any Madeline Miller, but I’m starting The Song of Achilles soon and I’m so excited.
Oh… I’ve had The Song of Achilles on my list forever! Hope you enjoy it! Looking forward to what you think of it. Something about Circe just draws me in though.
This is such a cool readathon! Best of luck with your O.W.L.S! Haha 💕
Happy reading! Will be checking out a few of these.
OH MY GOSH MADELINE MILLER?????
I didn’t know she wrote another book, I just finished Song of Achilles last night (at…..2 am…..) I wonder if it’s going to be as good??? i’m looking it up.
this is an amazing list <3
I’ve heard nothing but good things about Circe so far 🙂
This looks like a really good readathon and I really want to read Circe and seven husbands!
Oh! I will never catch up with book trends. That boat sailed when I had my little baby.😊♥️
I miss this life.
Oooh, fun challenge! I’m intrigued, can’t wait to see your progress! Good luck 💛
So far so good! But already off the TBR! I should really just try a reverse TBR next time…
Seven Husbands was very well written and engrossing (although you can see the “twist” a mile away).
This is a great readathon! sounds fun!
