OWLs in July Wrap Up

I was very late to the Magical Readthon party, mainly because I had a lot going on in April so couldn't join in them, so when Aoife mentioned she was doing her OWLs in July I jumped in and joined her.

I knew that I'd have A Lot going on for the considerable future, so I settled on the fairy easy goal of the Seer career path, as I knew it'd give me plenty of leeway for the NEWTs too.

Mandatory OWLs

Ancient Runes - Retelling

Astronomy - "Star" in the Title

Divination - Set in the Future

Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

Extra Credit OWLs

Muggle Studies - Contemporary

DADA - Reducto: Title Starts with an R

Rose, Interrupted by Patrice Lawrence

Charms - Age Line: Read an Adult Work

Potions - Next Ingredient: Sequel

The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson

History of Magic - Published at least 10 Years Ago

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

So overall, I did much better than I expected. I read a lot more than I thought I would and I FOUND A NEW FAVOURITE BOOK and it's a Classic so colour me shocked because my party line is I Don't Like Classics. I even read a few other books outside of the readathon that I couldn't shoehorn into the prompts.

Now I'm excited for the NEWTs tomorrow, especially as I have a little more freedom if I want to stray from the Seer career path.

What did you read in July?


  1. It looks like you've read a lot this month! Good luck with your next readathon!

  2. I've always wanted to participate in this readathon but I always have too much going on! Definitely next time :)

  3. A Curse So Dark & Lonely is one of my absolute faves!!

  4. Wow you read so much! I keep seeing people mention the OWLS and NEWTS but I don't think I'd be very good at keeping to the prompts.

    1. I didn't think I'd read as much, so I only aimed for three books. So proud that I managed to beat it.

  5. Well done!! I only read 5 books in July and I felt really slumpy, hopefully YALC has pulled me out of it!

  6. I didn't even think of doing my O.W.L.s late! I was busy in April as well, so I was unable to do the read-a-thon then!

    1. It was a super last minute decision for me, but I'm glad I did it.

  7. I'm so pleased you enjoyed Jane Eyre. It's my favourite.

    How was Perfect? I really need to read that one. But I'm not sure I'm over Flawed yet.

    1. Perfect was awesome, I really enjoyed it! I regret waiting so long as it picks straight back up, but there's enough recap to remind you.

  8. So many books! I'm sure you'll be doing great with your O.W.L.s too!

  9. You did great! Well done ��

  10. you did great indeed! :) im also not a huge fan of classics so its great that one has become your fave
