April 2019 TBR


A new month, a new TBR!

This month’s TBR is a bit special. April is namely also the month where we sit our O.W.L.s 😏 It’s a readathon hosted by Book Roast inspired by the exams called O.W.L.s in the Harry Potter books. If you want more information on this readingchallenge, I gladly refer you to the youtube channel of Book Roast *click*! Now let’s get on with my TBR for the month of April, as well as for the O.W.L.s readathon, and the careerpath I chose.

I chose the careerpath of Magizoologist, which means I *have* to sit and pass the following classes: Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Herbology and Potions. Like the Ravenclaw I am, I’m going for an “Outstanding” grade, which means I have to sit (and pass) at least 5 O.W.L.s. That’s why I had to add another book and matching challenge to my reading list of this month and I chose Muggle Studies!

  1. Care of Magical Creatures – Land animal on the coverWatership Down by Richard Adams: after their living space gets threatened by humans, a group of rabbits go on a journey, looking for a new home. Of course, this doesn’t come without danger.
  2. Charms – Age-line: read an adult workLiar Liar by M.J. Arlidge: the fourth book in the Helen Grace series. Detective Helen Grace has to catch the criminal who has caused six fires in only twenty-four hours, which left two people dead and several injured.
  3. Herbology – Plant on the coverRobinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe: an English sailor is stranded on a desert island and is left to survive the forces of nature.
  4. Potions – Next ingredient: sequelThe Valley of Horses by Jean M. Auel: this is the sequel to The Clan of the Cave Bear. When Ayla is cast out by her former clan, she is left on her own and has to travel through open land, filled with danger, to reach the “other” who are much like herself.
  5. Muggle Studies – ContemporarySomething Reckless by Lexi Ryan: Lizzy and the one who calls himself riverrat69 on a certain dating service break the rules of the service to meet each other in person.

Let’s hope I make it through my exams and that I get an “Outstanding” grade! I really hope to have enough time to read more books (matching other challenges), but I think five books in total would be just as well.

Are you joining the O.W.L.s readathon this year? What career path did you choose?

  1. I mentioned it already, but while this readthon sounds SO fun and I’m enjoying seeing everyone’s posts about it, I would definitely be stressing out about ‘failing’, hahaha. I am so silly, I know! *runs away*

    I’m really interested to see what you think of Watership Down; it’s been on my TBR for a while! I watched the new BBC adaptation last year and I also saw the original show when I was a child. But I’ve not had a chance to pick up my copy of the book yet.
