OWLs 2020 Readathon Wrap Up

In April, I took part in the Magical Readathon that is OWLs! This is a month-long readathon that was created by BookRoast and is Harry Potter themed. It is so well thought out & detailed and I absolutely love it. It is followed by NEWTs (in August) and you choose a career to work towards. I chose to work towards a career as an Alchemist because it involves the most reading!

My OWLs 2020

As I chose the Alchemist career, I had to complete all 12 prompts (12 books) to get 12 OWLs to be eligible.

My OWLs Recommendations

Out of the 12 books I read for OWLs, my top 2 recommendations are Once Upon An Eid and A Kind of Spark.

Once Upon an Eid is a collection of short stories all set during Eid. I don’t usually get sucked into short stories as I like something meatier but because of this book, I extended my TBR with new authors that I hadn’t heard of before.

A Kind of Spark is an absolutely beautiful middle grade book which deserves it’s own whole review on its own (which is to come). It is an own voices book about Addie, an autistic girl who is on a mission to make her town understand why it is important to memorialise the victims of the witch trials in her town. This is such an important book that stole a piece of my heart. It is equally, educating, entertaining & moving and I recommend it for all ages, of all neurotypes. Absolute perfection!

I’m looking forward to the next round, NEWTs 2020!

    I love the concept of a ‘readathon’. I have read some of these books with my children, but thank you for some additional ones I haven’t heard of that I can add to our ever-growing reading list. A lovely post I stumbled across. xxx

      You are very welcome! I absolutely love readathons as they push my book choices out of my usual picks and expand my tastes – I’ve found some great books that I would never have picked previously due to certain readathon prompts :)! Thank you for your lovely comment.
