Magical Readathon (OWL’s Exams) TBR!

I was so excited when I saw the announcement for this readathon, there was no doubt that I’ll be participating, because the only thing better than reading and the Harry Potter franchise is when they merge together!

The Magical Readathon is based on the Ordinary Wizarding Levels (OWL’s) students are required to take at Hogwarts. The official Hogwarts letter with the challenges/pass grades is attached here.

It was created and will be hosted by Gi from Book Roast, and will be running from 2nd April – 29th April.

In true Ravenclaw fashion, I am going to set myself high by setting a TBR based on each of the topics! Of course, as with the OWL’s, there will be set grades for the amount of book read/exams sat and passed. To get the highest grade of ‘Outstanding’, you will need to complete five of the challenges, which is where I am setting my bar! 5 books in 4 weeks shouldn’t be too tricky, right?!
