The O.W.L Readathon is a Harry Potter themed readathon created by Book Roast on Youtube! Book Roast chose a topic or rule for each course that you have to follow in order to get credit for that O.W.L. You can pick which Hogwarts courses you want to take the O.W.L for, or you can choose a wizarding career from the career book she created and take the O.W.L.’s that that career requires. I decided to pick some of the courses I would be most interested in taking at Hogwarts and use that to create my April TBR! Here are the courses that you can choose from, along with the courses that I ended up choosing :
An Anonymous Girl – Arithmancy
Year One – Care of Magical Creatures
The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle – Charms
Red Sparrow – Defense Against the Dark Arts
The Immortalists – Herbology
More information on the readathon and the careers can be found on Book Roasts Youtube and instagram which I linked below!
