O.W.Ls Readathon 2019 | Update

Witches, Wizards, and Muggles, Easter has been, the sun is most definitely shining, and the end of exam season is in sight! I would normally be ecstatic to see the back of exams, but I adore this readathon, so I am kind of disappointed that it’s nearly over already. We still have just over a week left, that’s plenty of time to work towards our exam targets and complete some last minute revision!

I have had a slightly slower middle of the month in April. I have been tackling some longer books, and also been re-reading the Beautiful Bastard series, which sadly doesn’t count for anything in terms of OWLs challenges.  I finished the first few challenges really quickly, and have only finished one more since the last check-in. That said, I am definitely further on than I was. I have finished a vital subject, I am over half-way through the final challenge that will secure any of the career paths I am interested in, and I then will only have two challenges left to pursue a full house and finish ALL of the OWLs.

I am looking forward to the last few days. I haven’t interacted as much as I would have liked on the twitter tag, mainly because of work, and because I’ve been reading, and because I have been watching Homeland. Fingers crossed that everyone accomplishes all they want and need to for the last sprint in this amazing readathon!!!

How are you getting on?

What subjects have you completed? What did you read?

What career path have you chosen to follow?

      1. Gi from The Book Roast (on Youtube) hosts. She does OWLs around now and then NEWTs in the summer, July/August. Definitely worth a go if it’s your bag 😀
