April is over and along with the month being over so is the O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon. During April, I set out to complete the O.W.L.’s needed to become a healer. For that I needed to complete these criteria:
- Defense Against the Dark Arts
- 3 other subjects of your choosing
For the three of my choosing, I had originally chose to complete:
- Ancient Runes
- History of Magic
I had also planned to complete the other four classes if I was able to, but that the eight needed for the healer career were my top priority.
My reading for April was on the low side compared to other months in the past, but I was able to complete the healer career with a little bit of substitution for a book for a class and changing a class I had planned to complete. I thought I had been able to complete three extra classes, but the book I had chosen for Arithmacy ended up not working for the criteria since one of the people listed on the front cover is actually the illustrator for the graphic novel and not an author.
The classes I completed and books I read were:
- Herbology – Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
- Charms – Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
- Defense Against the Dark Arts – The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu
- Potions – King of Fools by Amanda Foody
- Transfiguration – Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto (my edition is the OwlCrate exclusive with sprayed edges)
- Muggle Studies – Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan
- History of Magic – City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
- Astronomy – Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell
- Divination – Scythe by Neal Shusterman
- Care of Magical Creatures – The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston
Given how bad of a reading month I had in April, I’m very pleased with how many of the classes I was able to complete during this readathon.
Did you participate in the O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon? If so, how did you do and were you able to complete the classes needed for the career you chose?
