Bookish Item| Magical Readathon 2020 TBR – Part 1

Even though I really end up failing at readathons after making a TBR, I still love trying to see how far I get. I enjoyed the winter edition of the magical readthon last December and was excited to give the O.W.L.s. a go! This readathon will take place the whole month of April and was created by Book Roast. You can find the video to this year’s readathon here.

Today it’s time for my 2020 Magical Readathon TBR. Isabelle will be posting her TBR next week, that’s why this one is part 1. Let’s take a look!

It still amazes me how much work was put into this readathon. The guidebook looks amazing and makes me feellike I’m going back to school. I know that you’re only supposed to choose one career, but at the moment I’m typing this, there are three I can’t choose from: Librarian, Mind Medic and Care of Magical Children.

I’ll eventually choose, but I’ll just pick books for all of the subjects needed for these careers. I love reading, so it’ll only be more fun to read more prompts. Let’s see what each career needs!

Librarian

As a book lover, I don’t think I have to explain why I want this one, haha. I would love to work at a library every day. For this career path, I need the following O.W.L.s.:

  • Ancient Runes
  • Arithmancy
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts
  • History of Magic
  • Transfiguration

Mind Medic

If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, you know that the mind can be messed with if spells go wrong or if you’re attacked. Mind medics are needed to help these people out. For this career path, I need the following O.W.L.s.:

  • Ancient Runes
  • Arithmancy
  • Charms
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts
  • Herbology
  • Muggle Studies
  • Potions
  • Transfiguration

Care of Magical Children

I actually went to college for a field that works with children and their development. Looking after these special children and helping where needed would be an interesting job. For this career path, I need the following O.W.L.s.:

  • Arithmancy
  • Charms
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts
  • Herbology
  • History of Magic
  • Muggle Studies
  • Potions
  • Transfiguration

TBR

If I try and get all of these O.W.L.s., there are only three subjects I’m not reading for, haha. So let’s take a look at the books I want to read for each prompt.

Ancient Runes –
Heart of the Cover or in the Title

This was an easy one! I want to pick up A Heart so Fierce and Broken. I loved A Curse So Dark and Lonely and have been trying to find time to read the sequel. I have a feeling this is going to be another great story.

Arithmancy –
Read Something Outside Your Favorite Genre

Horror isn’t a genre that I’ve read a lot of or even saw myself reading. After reading a few last year, I’ve been wanting to give a few more a go. I got Sawkill Girls last year when I participated in a book swap. A lot of readers I know really loved this book, so I hope I do too!

Charms –
White Cover

Only having to choose a white cover actually makes this prompt hard, haha. Let’s see, One of Us is Next is a book I added to my collection when it was released. One of Us is Lying was good, but the ending was disappointing to me. I hope I like thisending better.

Defence Against the Dark Arts –
Book Set at the Sea/Coast

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken has been on my shelves way too long! I need to pick this one up, so this seems like the perfect moment. It’s going to be interesting to see if I like this one. It seems to be that people either love this book or are really disappointed by it!

Herbology –
Title Starts with an M

A lot of readers I know that have read The Merciful Crow really loved this story. The sequel, The Faithless Hawk, is releasing later this year and I want to get a start on this. The Merciful Crow sounds like something I’ll really enjoy.

History of Magic –
Book Featuring Witches/Wizards

I loved The Black Witch and still haven’t read the sequel, The Iron Flower. Oops! I’mreally excited about this book and need to catch up before the next book is published in a few months.

Muggle Studies –
Contemporary

As a big fan of contemporary, how can I choose just one, haha. When I was looking through my books for other prompts, The Bookworm Crush stood out to me. I think I’ll use this one for the Magical Readathon.

Potions –
Book Under 150 Pages

Isabelle is a big fan of the Fence series by C.S. Pacat. The first volume is 112 pages and I plan on ordering it with my birthday money! I’ve been wanting to read more comics and graphic novels, so it’s the perfect time to start!

Transfiguration –
Book/Series That Includes Shapeshifting

The last couple of weeks I’ve seen people reading My Lady Jane and even posted a picture of it on Bookstagram. It’s been calling to me to pick up and reread and I guess I’ll just have to do that next month. I don’t think I’ll ever have enough of this book.

So these are the books I hope to read in April! We’ll see how far I get or if I change books along the way. Are you participating in the Magical Readathon? If you have a TBR post, I’d love to see!
