April TBR/O.W.L.s Magical Readathon!

Happy April, everyone! Hopefully the start of a new month brings some positivity for us all. Even through all this social distancing/quarantine that we’re all experiencing!

The O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon is currently happening! The OWLs Magical Readathon is run by Book Roast. I’m going to give this readathon a shot. I enjoy Harry Potter, and taking part of the O.W.L.s would be something that I would love! I already have my career chosen…I’m following the Care of Magical Children path. Since I’m already an Educator, I figure that’s a fitting path for me!

Here are the books I chose for my TBR:

Charms: Read a Book With a White Cover
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

Muggle Studies: Read a Contemporary
You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendicks & Sarah Pekkanen

Defense Against the Dark Arts: A Book Set in the Ocean
All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace

Transfiguation: A Book with ShapeShifting
Lobizona by Romina Garber

Potions: Read a Book Under 150 pages
The Riot Grrrl Thing by Sara Larsen

History of Magic: Read a Book About Witches or Wizards
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Herbology: A Book Whose Title Begins with ‘M’
The Magician King by Lev Grossman

Arithmancy: Read a Book Different From Your Favored Genre
Silent Shadows by Natalie Walters

Those are my choices for the OWLs Readathon! Are you also taking part? Let me know in the comments!

Four Favorite Harry Potter Spells/Blogtober Day 27

I’m participating in The Library Looter & Anniek’s Library Blogtober challenge!

Today the prompt is ‘Name 4 of your favorite spells from the Harry Potter universe’.

Here are four of my faves:

Lumos (a flash of light emanating from the tip of one’s wand)

Wingardium Leviosa (a charm used to make objects fly in the air)

Polyjuice Potion (a complex potion that allows someone to change into someone else when consumed)

Obliviate (a charm used to erase certain memories from someone else’s mind)
