OWLs Readathon | Progress Report


If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that I am currently taking part in the OWLs Readathon run by Gintare of Book Roast. I found out about the readathon a few days into it so I didn’t have time to post a proper TBR on here, but I did make a Twitter thread which I’ve been updating periodically with my reading progress throughout the readathon. However, I thought it might be nice, now we’re at the halfway stage of two weeks, to do a more official progress report of sorts so both you (and I) can see where I’m up to and what I have left to read for the remaining two weeks of the readathon. You in? Great, let’s begin…


  1. Ancient Runes – read a book with symbols on the cover
    Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer – READ
  2. Arithmancy – read a book with a number on the cover or in the title
    The One by Kiera Cass – READING
  3. Astronomy – read a sci-fi book
    Saga Volume 8 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
  4. Care of Magical Creatures – read a book featuring magical creatures on cover/in title
    The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar
  5. Charms – read a fantasy book
    The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty – READING
  6. Defence Against the Dark Arts – read a book featuring secret societies or clubs
    The Dark Days Pact by Alison Goodman
  7. Divination – read a book featuring a prophecy
    The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton
  8. Herbology – read a book with a nature-related world in its title
    Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
  9. History of Magic – read a historical fiction
    The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley – READING
  10. Muggle Studies – read a non-fiction book
    Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge – READING
  11. Potions – read a book featuring alchemy
    Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling [audiobook] – READ
  12. Transfiguration – read a book featuring shapeshifters or with a cat on the cover
    The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman – READING

As you can see, I’ve “sat” two of my exams – Ancient Ruins and Potions, and I’m in the midst of preparation for Arithmancy, Charms, History of Magic, Muggle Studies, and Transfiguration. As I’m aiming for the career of Charms professor (which is the job I’ve always inexplicably wanted to do in the Wizarding World), Gintare has said 5 OWLs are required, with one of them being an Outstanding in the subject you wish to teach. I’m definitely on course for that but we’ll see what happens in the next two weeks!

Are you taking part in the readathon? How are you doing with your exams? Let me know in the comments below and we can cheer each other on!

  1. Oooh, I’m doing this one too. I really loved the concept of it, although I don’t have access to books which fit each category since I’m at uni with my uni shelves, but I’m still having fun. Hope the rest of the challenge goes well for you <3
