I’m sitting my OWLs

So last week I found an awesome video on YouTube by BookRoast. She for most of the month of April (2nd to the 29th) will be hosting a readathon for everyone to sit their OWLs (as in Hogwarts exam). The idea is also that this readathon will lead into another one later on for everyone to sit their NEWTs.

I will definitely be completing my OWLs and since I am a competitive Slytherin I will be aiming to complete all 12 exams.

So what are the subjects and the exam task you ask:

Ancient runes – Read a book with a symbol on the cover
Arithmacy – Read a book with a number on the cover or in the title
Astronomy – Read a science fiction novel
Care of Magical Creatures – Read a book including a magical creature or has one on the cover
Charms – Read a fantasy book
Defense Against the Dark Arts – Read a book with secret societies or clubs
Divination – Read a book that featuring prophecies
Herbology – Read a book with a nature related word in the title
History of Magic – Read a historical fiction book
Muggles Studies – Read a non-fiction muggle book
Potions – Read a book about/ with alchemy
Transfiguration – Read a book that deals with transfiguration/ shapeshifting or has a cat on the cover

The Grades:

Passing Grades:
Outstanding – Sit (and pass) at least 5 OWLs
Exceeded Expectations – Sit (and pass) at least 3 OWLs
Acceptable – Sit (and pass) at least 2 OWLs
Failing Grades:
Poor – Sit only one OWL
Dreadful – Start but not finish any OWLs
Troll – Don’t show up at your OWLs examinations

So now for my exams in order of my favourite subjects (and probably the order that they will be read)

Defense Against the Dark Arts – Don’t Judge a Girl by her Cover by Ally Carter
Potions – The Silver Mask by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Charms – Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Care of Magical Creatures – The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Transfiguration – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling
History of Magic – A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Divination – The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan
Herbology – Winter by Marissa Meyer
Ancient Runes – Divergent by Veronica Roth
Astronomy – Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Arithmacy – One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
Muggle Studies – Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

While this is my current TBR I am thinking about changing some up to add in some Comic Trade Paperbacks since I haven’t read ANY this year.

I hope you will all join in for this readathon as it is going to be heaps of fun!

Go Slytherin!
