Hey everyone! I’m participating in the #OWLsReadathon2019 so I thought I would share with you guys what I’m planning on reading for that readathon!
OWLs Readathon 2019 is an awesome Harry Potter themed readathon coming up in April! It is hosted by the lovely Booktuber over at her channel @BookRoast.
You can see all the details about the readathon in her announcement video:
An Ordinary Wizarding Level (often abbreviated O.W.L.) is a standardised subject-specific test taken during Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry students’ fifth year, administrated by the Wizarding Examinations Authority. The score made by a student on a particular O.W.L. determines whether or not he or she will be allowed to continue taking that subject in subsequent school years, and whether they might be successful in obtaining a particular job.
According to this, G came up with prompts for each subject and in August, she holds the N.E.W.T.S. Readathon where we can only take up the subjects we passed our O.W.L.S. in and then, we can get a career! Ah, I am so excited!
THE PROMPTS AND THE BOOKS I AM CHOOSING FOR EACH
I have decided to try and achieve 7 O.W.L.S and here they are:
Ancient Runes – Retelling
Heartless by Marissa Meyers
Arithmancy – 2 or more authors
Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
Defence Against The Dark Arts – Title from ‘R’
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
History of Magic – Publish 10 or more years ago
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Muggle Studies – Contemporary
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Potions – Sequel
Rich People Problems By Kevin Kwan
Transfiguration– Red Cover or Sprayed Pages
Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
Well, you all won’t be surprised to hear how indecisive I am about this. I wanna aim high but then again, I have exams in April so I don’t want to disappoint myself, hence, I have chosen three possible careers that I like and would want to achieve.
Here they are:
This is the one I want the most but it requires me to read 7 books so I am feeling a little dicey right now. But hey, If I am able to do it, it will be amazing! I have also not decided what subject I want to teach but I can always choose one of the ones listed above I August, so well, one crisis averted!
- 7 O.W.L.s
- Compulsory: Defense Against The Dark Arts and the subject you want to teach.
JOURNALIST OR WRITER
This is my second career option, one I like a lot and honestly, the easiest one. I think this may just as well be the one I end up doing!
- 3 O.W.L.s
- Compulsory: History of Magic and Muggle Studies
This seems like such a great career choice too! But, the thing is, it is very specific so I am not sure if I am ready to take on it this April, but we’ll see!
- 5 O.W.L.s
- Compulsory: Defense Against The Dark Arts, Transfiguration, Ancient Runes, Arithmancy and History of Magic
