O.W.Ls Readathon 2019 | Wrap Up

Well well, witches, wizards and Muggles, O.W.Ls 2019 is officially almost over. We’re on the last day, the very last stretch, and I am so pleased with my progress and performance but absolutely gutted that the readathon is over! I can’t believe that this amazing readathon has been going on for a month, I mean, where has that gone eh? I hope you had a great month!

I am very pleased to report that I managed to complete ALL 12 of the OWLs subjects. This was my hope, but not really my aim, as I didn’t need to finish them all to pursue my career of either Curse Breaker of Ministry of Magic worker in the Department of Mysteries. I’ve read some really great books this month, both for this readathon and not, and I am really pleased it has paid off. Check out what I read:

I am already looking forward to the next round of this readathon. N.E.W.Ts fell in the summer last year (August I think) and was another great opportunity to get reading and enjoying ourselves, so I hope to see you all there following you careers and supporting one another! If it comes close to the success of this readathon, it is going to be a great month!

How did you get on?

What subjects did you complete? What did you read?

What career path have you chosen to follow?

    1. Thank you!! I had such a great reading month so I’m so pleased. Haha, I’ll take that, I was never as good at exams and revision in school lol!
      Yeah I’ve only just started reading them as an adult. Not overwhelmed, but they’re not bad either!!
