April/O.W.L.s TBR

This month, I’m aiming to read a fair few books whilst I’m at home, many of which I’ve been generously gifted by various lovely publishers!

As always, this will be a working document that I will update throughout the month to track my progress. The symbol ✨ means that I’m currently reading that book.

This month, I am taking my O.W.L.S again, after loving them so much last year! The Magical Readathon was created by the amazing Book Roast and you can see her announcement video over at O.W.L.s Magical Readathon 2020 Announcement. The task is to read a book that matches a certain prompt. If you finish the book, you earn whatever O.W.L. that prompt is associated with. I’m not sure which career I want, so I’m just going to try and pass as many O.W.L.s as possible!
