Magical Readathon 2019 - O.W.Ls Book List (TBR)

The Magical Readathon has a number of events throughout the year, and involve a reading challenge. I've been in a bad place with reading this year, and just can't seem to concentrate, so I thought that I would take up the challenge and sit my OWL examinations. If you are not aware of what the OWLs are, they are the examinations which take place in the fifth year at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. and all students must complete the exams. These are followed by the NEWTs in the seventh year, and are much harder. Following the first Magical Readathon of 2019, which takes place for the duration of April, I will then hopefully pass and be able to sit my NEWT exams later in the year.




MORE ABOUT THE OWL EXAMS


There are a number of exams that need to be sat in order to complete the OWL exams (Ordinary Wizarding Level) and receive the grades needed to go on and complete the NEWT exams. This year, we even have some Career options to follow, so I have decided to become a Ministry Worker within the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes. This means that I need to pass 5 exams in order to be able to continue on in the hopes of becoming a Ministry Worker.

The readathon, is hosted and created by Book Roast on Youtube, and you can learn more about the readathon by watching her video below.



As this is a reading challenge, each exam has a prompt which I have outlined below, along with the book I have chosen to read.

The exams that I need to take, and pass are:

I hope to receive the grade of Exceeded Expectations though, so need to pass 6 exams. If I find that I am going to be able to read more after completing these six books, I will push to pass 9 exams to get the grade of Outstanding. The other subject areas for exams are:

These are all the books that I plan to read for the readathon, which lasts the whole of April. I really hope that I can read at least 6 books during the month, and I have some of my favourite books on the list to re-read, as well as some new ones, and one that I didn't enjoy very much but would like to give it another try.
