Welcome back, y’all!
If you’ve followed me on any social media platform then you already know that I am really, really terrible at 2 things: keeping up with TBRs and completing readathons. But here I am… setting a TBR and doing a readathon.
I have good intentions, I swear. March was such a bust that I decided (literally last night) that I needed something to motivate me to read more in April so that I can keep ahead of my Goodreads goal. I was just browsing around when I saw the announcement for the 2020 Magical Readathon and I thought, “I love reading and I love Harry Potter… so why not?”
If you click the embedded link, you can read all about the history of the readathon, learn about the creator, and see the career paths and prompts. I was really impressed with how this readathon caters to both readers who read a lot of books in a month and readers who read 3-4 a month.
For myself, I decided to pick the Healer career path!
The world could use a few extra healers right now and I really liked that it had 8 prompts, three of which you get to pick!
My prompts are:
Herbology- Title starts with an (I).
TBR: I THINK I LOVE YOU by Auriane Desombre (ARC)
Charms- white cover
TBR: A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab
Defense Against the Dark Arts- Book set at sea/coast
TBR: THE MERMAID, THE WITCH, AND THE SEA by Maggie Tokuda-Hall (ARC)
Potions- Book under 150 pages
TBR: I AM NOT YOUR FINAL GIRL by Claire Holland
Transfiguration- book series that includes shapeshifting
TBR: DEEPLIGHT by Frances Hardinge (ARC)
Astronomy- Read most of this book when it’s dark outside
TBR: DARK AND DEEPEST RED by Anna-Marie McLemore
History of Magic- Book featuring witches
TBR: LOBIZONA by Romina Garber (ARC)
Muggle Studies- book from a muggle perspective (contemp)
TBR: SUMMER OF SALT by Katrina Leno
There are also extra “courses” you can take during the readathon. Because of the way my TBR is set, I’ll also complete:
I have my fingers crossed that I’ll keep up with this readthon because it seems like so much fun!
