O.W.Ls Recap and N.E.W.Ts TBR

This is my first year in taking part in The Book Roasts Magical Readathon and I’m loving it! I did my O.W.Ls in April and, although I didn’t complete my entire TBR, I did read all the books I needed to continue on with my N.E.W.Ts for my chosen career path – a healer.

Books I read during my O.W.Ls:

Care of Magical Creatures – Land animal on the cover: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Charms – Age-line: read an adult work: After by Anna Todd

Defence Against the Dark Arts – Reducto: title starts with an ‘R’: Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare

Divination – Set in the future: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Herbology – Plant on the cover: Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

Muggle Studies – Contemporary: Fame, Fate and the First Kiss by Kasie West

Potions – Next ingredient: sequel: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Transfiguration – Sprayed edges or red cover: One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus


Charms (A) – Read a book that you think has a gorgeous cover: The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh

Charms (E) – Read a comic/graphic novel/manga (or a book under 150 pages): TBC

Defence Against the Dark Arts (A) – Book that’s black under the dust jacket: Another Faust by Daniel & Dina Nayeri

Defence Against the Dark Arts (E) – Gilderoy’s memory charm: first book that you remember just now from your TBR: Nexus by Sasha Alsberg

Herbology (A) – Listen to an audiobook: Romanov by Nadine Brandes

Herbology (E) – Read a book between 350-390 pages: Maybe This Time by Kasie West or Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Potions (A) – Polyjuice Potion: read your friends favourite book: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Potions (E) – House Ingredient: book with a cover in your Hogwarts house colour: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Transfiguration (A) – Read a book with LQBTQA+ representation: My Heart Goes Bang by Keris Stainton

Transfiguration (E) – Read a book that’s not a first in the series: Princess in Practice by Connie Glynn

So there’s my TBR for the second half of the Magical Readathon. Honestly I don’t know how closely I’ll stick to it since I’ll be travelling at the time, so there may be a few changes but fingers crossed I complete my N.E.W.Ts. I can’t wait to get stuck in!
