O.W.Ls Magical Readathon Update #1

Hey everyone! The first ten days of April seemed to have past by in a blur for me, but I read quite a few books already! Some are for the readathon and others were just for fun.

So because I’m trying to become an Auror, I need to complete 5 books for Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, Potions, and Transfiguration. I’ve completed three of the five prompts so far, so here are the books I’ve read and what class they counted for:

  1. I first read Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas for Transfiguration: Animagus Lecture- book/series that includes shape shifting. Obviously Rowan turns into a hawk and there are multiple characters that are actual shape shifters, so I’m glad I could finish by Throne of Glass binge and also count it toward my O.W.Ls
  2. The second book I completed was Chasing Lucky by Jen Bennett for Defense Against the Dark Arts: book set at sea/coast. Chasing Lucky takes place in a small vacation town on the east coast, and boating is a main aspect of the book! I have a review up of this book, so definitely go ahead and check it out if you want to hear my thoughts on the book.
  3. The third book I’ve completed for this readathon was Words In The Deep Blue by Cath Crowley for Charms: white on the cover. I stretched this prompt a bit because there’s not a ton of white on the cover, but I was just really in the mood to read this book, and I’m glad I did. I did not expect Words In The Deep Blue to have such a strong emotional punch, as it deals heavily with grief, but I loved this book nonetheless!

I’m currently about to start In Watermelon Sugar by Richard Brautigan for Potions: book under 150 pages, and I’m thinking of picking up The Merciful Crow for Herbology: book title that starts with M.

How are your O.W.Ls going? Let me know in the comments what career you’re going for and what prompt/class you’re currently trying to complete!
