It has come again! The OWLs for the Magical Readathon start April 1st, and I’m pumped about it. If you’ve noticed, I kinda fell off of doing readathons lately. This one is too much fun to not do, though.
For the full info on how the readathon works, please watch the announcement video:
So I’m not going into all the details on how this thing works, that’s what the video is for. What I am going to do is going into my chosen career and my TBR for it.
Last year, I chose Alchemist, which was crazy, as it was the most challenging career out of all available at the time, and surprisingly, I achieved all the requirements for it, both in the OWLs and the NEWTs. This year though I’m going for an easier one, because I’m also planning on participating in Camp Nanowrimo in April so I need to be able to balance.
This year, I’m going to go with
Magizoologist focuses on working with neato animals, and it has four OWL prompts, so I figured it was totally doable. In addition to my career, I’ve picked up an extra training that only Magizoologists can do!
Dragon Tamer Training
This training adds one additional prompt to my TBR, so that’ll be five total. I plan to read manga for as many as I can to make it easier on myself: I really plan to dive into Nano with full force.
So my prompts for the OWLs are:
Care of Magical Creatures: Hippogriffs – creature with a beak on the cover
Charms: Lumos Maxima – white cover
Herbology: Mimbulus Mimbletonia – title starts with M
Potions: Shrinking Solution – book under 150 pages
Dragon Tamer Training: A book containing dragons
And my TBR to fulfill these prompts is:
I Hate Fairyland vol 1 by Skottie Young – This books is under 150 pages, so it’ll fulfill my Potions prompt!
Pandora Hearts vol 1 by Jun Mochizuki – White cover, Charms!
Model vol 1 by Lee So-Young – Starts with M so it fulfills my Herbology prompt!
A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan – I’ve owned this one for ages and am pumped to be picking it up. And considering it’s literally about a woman studying dragons, it’ll be perfect for my Dragon Tamer Training!
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson – It has a raven on the front, aka a beak-ed creature, so it fulfills my Care of Magical Creatures prompt!
None of these books are super long. The dragon book is by far the longest, and it’s only 330-something pages. So with these two books, two manga and one graphic novel, I feel like I can finish both the OWLs readathon and my Camp Nanowrimo project, which I’ll post about later on.
Let me know if you’re participating. Happy reading!
