Magical Readathon – O.W.L.s Update

I’m here to give an update on my progress for the readathon that I’m doing this month! For those of you that missed my TBR post for this reading challenge (find it here) here’s the deal. A YouTuber by the name of Book Roast created this awesome reading challenge. We read books that meet certain requirements for each of the classes that you could take an O.W.L. exam for. I chose a book for each of the provided courses but definitely don’t plan to read them all. Just as many as I can so that I have more options to take when I decide to do the N.E.W.T. Exam reading challenge.
