Weekend Reads is a weekly post I haven’t done much of in a very long time, but I’m jumping back into it this month to share my reading progress for the OWLs Magical Readathon, which is taking place this entire month.
I’m doing all the OWLs because I can’t decide on a career. However, when NEWTs come around, I might go for Mind Medic (requires 12 books read for NEWTs) or Trader of Magical Tomes (requires 5 books read for NEWTs).

Care of Magical Creatures
Defense Against the Dark Arts
Book read: Oddly Normal, bk. 1 by Otis Frampton (illus.)
A fantasy middle-grade graphic novel about a girl who’s a half-witch and has difficulty fitting in at school.
History of Magic
Book read: Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett
The second novel in the Witches sub-series or the Discworld series. It’s a humorous fantasy novel about three witches trying to save a kingdom from a tyrant.
Book read: Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares
The fourth novel in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series, a YA contemporary series about the strong friendship between four girls and a pair of pants they share.
Book read: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (illus.)
