Hey popcorns 🍿 (Yes I’m still going to call you that, old habits die hard, right?!)
I really have no idea how to start this post. First of all, hello! VERY long time no blogging, honestly like way too long. Precisely 8 months as Bayance likes to remind me XD
There is no point in me apologising, promising to blog more (I want to blog when I can!) promising to like and comment on everyone’s posts (I’d be there for ever) but I have tried to catch up with a couple of blog’s recent posts, please drop down a comment below so I can go visit your blog (my memory is good, but it’s not that good) ❤
I wanted my first new post to be simple, book-related duh and a light-read, so here goes nothing! 🙂
After reading El’s incredible post (please go check it out right here), I was super inspired to do this! As an avid reader and a Harry Potter fan, this was the perfect event to finally speak my interest in books again, I’m not reading as much as I’d like to, and I want that to change!
I will link everything at the end of this post (if your interested in joining) but I’ll explain a little about, and don’t worry if you feel overwhelmed, because I felt like that too! You have the chance to choose what you would like to specialise in, you scroll through lots of choices and you can add a seminar if you want a challenge! Like I did
that was a big mistake (it wasn’t). You then discover the qualifications you’ll need for that particular class (eg. Herbology Defence Against The Dark Arts) and then you go read the prompts for each of those classes (eg. Astronomy – read a majority of this book when it’s dark outside) and find a book to match! You have the whole of April to complete this, good luck if you decide to be a part of this ❤
There are O.W.L’s as well, but that’s a completely different post
that will probably be a whole lot longer with all the books I’ll be reading.
If your confused, don’t worry it’s totally fine, I was too at the start 😂
I had a massive decision over what career path I wanted to take, but eventually settled with Aurologist (if any of you know about my crazy obsession with the trilogy Dark Matter by Teri Terry you’ll know about my obsession with auras!) I was super interested in this, and I only had to have 3 O.W.L.’s. Here’s an info poster on my career path if your interested:
I’m completely out of my mind I decided that I wanted a challenge, I decided to take part in the ‘Magical Shop Mangement’ seminar! The description really interested me, and it’s only demanding an acceptable grade in O.W.L’s and N.E.W.T’s. Anyways, enough of my rambling let’s jump straight into the books I’ll be reading for each class! ⭐️
MAGICAL READATHON TBR 📚
Night classes: read a majority of this book when it’s dark outside
This book has been sitting on my bookshelf collecting dust for a long time! It’s finally time I start reading it. This was obviously the easiest prompt, as it could literally be any book.
Third eye: assign numbers to your TBR and use a random number generator to pick your read
Another book that’s been collecting a lot of dust in my bookshelf. I think this was a really cool prompt, as it forces you to read off your if it’s like mine very long TBR! I’ll definitely be doing this more in the future!
History Of Magic
Witch hunts: book featuring witches/wizards
I’m so excited to start reading this! 💗 I absolutely love Magnus Bane, he was one of my favourite characters in The Shadowhunters and I can’t wait to read a whole book dedicated to him! I have so many books about witches and wizards, it was tricky to pick.
Magical Shop Management Seminar – Arithmancy
Magical qualities of number 2: balance/opposites – read something outside your favourite genre
This book was given to me by my half brother, and it’s philosophical fiction which is totally outside of my reading comfort zone. Apparently this is a must-read, I usually wouldn’t be remotely interested in a book about a guy on a boat with a few animals (somehow I made that seem so basic) but I’m going to give it a go! Good luck to me when I’m doing N.E.W.T arithmancy, I’ll end up reading one awful, predictable romance book! SOS!
That pretty much concludes this post! Click here to be directed to the website, where you can come join the fun ❤️ I promise you, it will be totally worth it. It’s so much fun planning out all the books you’re going to read! Even if you are a little late, you can still join!
Thanks so much for reading this far! I’ll be doing a post at the end of April re-capping all of this and letting you know how it went (hopefully good!) so look out for that ❤️ A few questions below for you to answer, and that’s pretty much this post concluded. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it (a lot)!What was your favourite part of this post? Are you going to join this Magical Readathon? Have you read any of the books mentioned (let me know your ratings?) Have you missed me and am glad I’m back?
That’s a wrap! Happy reading! 📖
ps. I’ll be entering for Hufflepuff house! 💛 Hufflepuff for the win 💗
