Magical Readathon (2019)


Created by Book Roast on Youtube, the Magical Readathon is a biannual Harry-Potter themed reading challenge in which participants take their O.W.L.S. and N.E.W.T.S., standardized wizarding tests in the world of Harry Potter, by reading books that fill prompts for every subject. Though I'm not a fandom diehard, this challenge has a level of love and detail that immediately attracted me to it, especially at the mention of a new feature: careers. A fake career that's easily attainable through a fun, low-effort activity? Yes please, I'm in desperate need of that shot of unearned accomplishment.

I took my O.W.L.S. in July so I could participate in the August session. The below is my tentative TBR for my N.E.W.T.S., tailored specifically to qualify as a ministry worker for the department of mysteries because deep down, I am a bureaucrat that will happily tie up your adventures with paperwork. Please return to the office when you've got the right stamp. My reads for both the O.W.L.S. and N.E.W.T.S. will be summarized in a wrap-up next month.
