So in the past, and even currently, Book Roast has hosted the Magical Readathon. It started out as a Harry Potter themed readathon for April and August, where participants completed their OWLs and NEWTs through prompts for the subjects needed for a Wizarding Career. As of last year, she changed the theme from Harry Potter to Orilium. Given that I missed out on the Harry Potter readathons, I’m going with that theme (and also because I have no idea what Orilium is).
To mix things up and make a 2022 Magical Readathon, I’ll be using the 2019 prompts for the OWLs in April, and the 2020 NEWTs prompts in August (or whenever I feel like continuing since it’s not an official readathon). The wizarding career I chose to give me some variety is the Graphic Designer career. There aren’t too many prompts required, so I won’t feel overwhelmed for either month. I added in some extras for the OWLs that aren’t required, but I’d like to do anyway.
I’ll be putting down two or three books for each prompt that I’ll choose between to complete it. I’m doing this because I’m such a mood reader that it’s likely my picks would change if I only listed one per prompt. I’m trying to keep it with books I’d like to read soon, and preferably off my At-Home TBR, rather than getting library books. That’s not to say one or two won’t be from the library, but I’d like to get my cart to stop overflowing.
Ancient Runes – Retelling
Arithmancy – Written by two authors
Charms – Age line: an adult work
History of Magic – Published at least 10 years ago
Transfiguration – Red cover
Muggle Studies (elective) – Contemporary
Potions (elective) – Next ingredient: sequel/continuation of series
Okay, well, I know the Potions prompt will be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as I’ve been re-reading the Harry Potter books this year. And other than Haikyu, it’s the only series I’m in the middle of at the moment.
