I can’t believe April is over and with that so is the O.W.L.s readathon! This is my first time taking part in the readathon and I’m so excited for N.E.W.T.s in August.
The readathon was hosted on BookTube by G from Book Roast. It was month long Harry Potter themed readathon where each for each book you read, you pass one of your O.W.L exams.
To pass the readathon, you will have to get your OWL in 2 subjects. This will get you at the Acceptable level. Six books will get you an Exceeded Expectations, where 9 will get you an Outstanding.
This year saw the addition of the Wizdarding Careers. The career you chose will determine which O.W.L.s you need to pass and in which subjects.
To recap, the career I chose was Magizoologist.
A magizoologist is a person who dedicates their life to studying, investigating and protecting magical creatures. The majority of wizards decide to focus on a specific favourite species after a couple of decades of studying the broader spectrum of fantastic beasts.
So to become a Magizoologist, the O.W.L.s I needed to pass were; Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Herbology and Potions.
This April I completed 8 O.W.L.s which is an Exceeded Expectations — just missed out an Outstanding 😩😂😂. Overall I am thrilled!
The O.W.L.s I completed are:
Ancient Runes; Retelling – Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Care of Magical Creatures; Land animal on the cover – European Travels for the Monstrous Gentlewoman by Theodora Goss
Charms; Age-line: read an Adult work – Devoured by Emily Snow
Divination; Set in the Future – Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh
Herbology; Plant on the cover – Begone the Raggedy Witches by Celine Kiernan
History of Magic; Published at least 10 years ago – The Mane Event by Shelly Laurenston
Muggle Studies; Contemporary – The Deal by Elle Kennedy
Potions; Next ingredient: sequel – The Mistake by Elle Kennedy
That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know if you took part in O.W.L.s and what your favourite subject was.
Until next time, happy reading!
