Good morning my loves!
I am thrilled to be writing this post today. Finally, the OWLS 2019 readathon is heeeerrreeeeee! All of the Magical Readathons are run by the lovely G at Book Roast and this year, I have to say it, she was well and truly OUTDONE herself. She has put an incredible amount of work into it and it’s just making me ever more excited! If you’d like to watch the announcement video, you can find that here.
G has created a gorgeous prompts list which you can find right here, along with the necessary requirements for wizarding careers, in preparation for the NEWTS readathon in August, head here if you want to check them out!
As for my TBR, I’ve gone with picking a book for each of the prompts. I’d like to think I’ll be able to read them all, that when I can pick my NEWTS TBR, I have all my options open for all careers! So here we are, the books that I am hoping to read during the readathon.
