O.W.L.S Read-A-Thon

Book Roast is a Youtuber who created the O.W.L.S Read-a-thon, hosted in April this year. This time around she is going to host the N.E.W.T Read-a-thon, which will run in August. She highly recommends to take your O.W.L.S first before going to the new levels, so I am planning to do this in July. I was inspired to do so after I saw Aprilius Maximus video with her TBR pile.
This spreadsheet gives you all the information you need about the different subjects you can take and the requirements to pass them. Your final 'pass or fail' is decided with this chart:

Pass grades:
Outstanding– sit (and pass) at least 5 OWLs
Exceeded Expectations – sit (and pass) at least 3 OWLs
Acceptable – sit (and pass) at least 2 OWLs

Fail grades:
Poor – sit only one OWL
Dreadful – start but not finish any OWLs tasks
Troll – do not show up at your OWLs examinations
Here are all the subjects and in italics you can see the titles I want to read, if a subject is made bold it means I have completed it.
  • Ancient Runes: Furyborn.
  • Arithmancy: The Thousandth Floor.
  • Astronomy: Passenger.
  • Care of Magical Creatures: The City of Brass (djinns)
  • Charms: Any fantasy book that I feel like at that moment.
  • Defense Against the Dark Arts: The Invisible Library.
  • Divination: Beyond a Darkened Shore.
  • Herbology: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns.
  • History of Magic: Blackhearts or Vengeance Road.
  • Muggle Studies: Bad Girls throughout History.
  • Potions: The Alchemy of Forever.
  • Transfiguration: Kingdom of Ash and Briars.


  1. Ha, I love this readathon, and it's super cute that they still "encourage you to sit your OWLs first" :) make Hermione proud of you, Mel!

  2. Ooh this is interesting! I'm bad at readathons though, but it sounds so fun! Good luck... and don't let Snape fails you xD
