My goal for this TBR has two parts:
- I want to read mostly books that I physically own already
- I want to complete the Magical Readathon
If you’re not familiar with the Magical Readathon, it was created by Book Roast on YouTube, and takes place over the months of April and August. Based on Harry Potter, April has the OWL prompts (named after the exams in the series). In the readathon, you choose a career you’re interested in which takes place in the magical world. From there, you’re given a list of courses you must complete, and therefore prompts to read. I’ll be doing the Mage of Visual Arts career, and will also be doing the Animagus training for a few additional books.
That brings us to what the actual TBR is, with the prompts they correspond to:
The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix (Astronomy)
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (Charms)
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger (Divination)
The Near Witch by V.E. Schwab (History of Magic)
Middlegame by Seanan McGuire (Arithmancy)
Beverly by Nick Drnaso (Potions)
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (Transfiguration)
I’m really excited to take part in this readathon after watching countless videos of it last year. I’m really looking forward to reading these books, and I’m hoping that I like them!
