I’m so excited to start this month because it’s the month of O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon 2019! Last year, I didn’t get to participate because I just started this blog in September. So, excuse me, while I’m throwing myself yet at another reading challenge. 💁‍♀️

I have no idea how this readathon worked last year, but as for this year, there is a list of wizarding careers that you can choose to pursue. Each career has its own minimum qualification for O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s or in other words, its own selected reading prompts that you need to tackle. After flipping through the careers guideline f̶o̶r̶ ̶G̶o̶d̶ ̶k̶n̶o̶w̶s̶ ̶h̶o̶w̶ ̶l̶o̶n̶g̶, I decided to go for Astronomer! The O.W.L.s that I need to pass are Arithmancy, Astronomy, and History of Magic! However, I’m hoping to get Exceed Expectations which means I still need three more subjects that I need to pass! So, here are my #TBR picks, where I divided them into required prompts and additional prompts!

Required Prompts

Arithmancy:Work written by more than one author
Astronomy: “Star” in the title
History of Magic: Published at least ten years ago

  1. Yay, I’m also doing my OWLs. I participated last year, too. It was soo much fun!
    I haven’t put Descendants of the Crane on my tbr because I preordered it though bookdepository and I have no idea when that’ll actually arrive … but it would be amazing if I could because I’m also participating (co-hosting) another readathon and it would work perfectly for that on as well!
    So fingers crossed I get it in time!

    The wife between us sounds also really good and has been on my wishlist for a little bit now. Hope you enjoy them all!!

    1. YAY! Glad you’re joining too, Nora! Oh yeah, Joan posted a few updates about some errors with the Book Depository team about DOTC pre-order, but I’m not sure how’s the situation now. But hopefully, you’ll receive your order soon!
