2020 O.W.L.s TBR

Hi, bookworms! This has been a... rough few weeks. As someone who struggles with an anxiety disorder, I've been having a difficult time trying to find things to keep my mind occupied while also not being able to focus on anything. I've seen this read-a-thon around before but never wanted to participate. Now it feels like just the thing I need to get excited about!

For those that don't know much about this challenge, you can find all the information on the website here. I love that you can choose what magical career you want to have! Once you choose your career, you'll see which O.W.L.s you have to pass. Then you can find the reading prompts related to those O.W.L.s.

For the challenge I chose Librarian, which is apparently very dangerous and mysterious. I'll also be attending Animagus Training, which comes with its own set of O.W.L.s. Here is my work load and (very tentative) TBR:


Ancient Runes (Heart on the cover or in the title)

Arithmancy (Read something outside your favorite genre)
The Fountains of Silence
This Monstrous Thing

Defense Against the Dark Arts (Book set at the sea/coast)
The Deep
The Beholder

History of Magic (Book featuring witches/wizards)
Howls' Moving Castle
The Near Witch

Transfiguration (Book/series that includes shapeshifting)
Wicked Fox
A Court of Wings and Ruin


Arithmancy (Read something outside your favorite genre)

Potions (Under 150 pages)

Transfiguration (Book/series that includes shapeshifting)
Crescent City

Have you read any of these?
Are you taking the O.W.L.s this year?
