My Career Goals!
So I have chosen to strive to be a Magizoologist for this years Magical ReadAThon.
So as you can see the OWLs that are required for Magizoologist are: Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Herbology & Potions.
So I will be concentrating on the 4 subjects required for Magizoologist but I have chosen a book for each of the 12 subjects. If I have time I will pick up as many as I can but my priority will definitely be the 4 subjects for Magizoologist!
Care of Magical Creatures – Land animal on the cover
This one is fairly self explanatory. There is a wolf on the cover, which is a land animal.
Charms – Age Line: Read an adult work
This is an Adult Historical Fiction. I absolutely love this cover and I picked it up on a whim when I was out shopping with a mate. I haven’t read what it’s about but I hope I love it!
Herbology – Plant on the cover
I have been meaning to read this for AGES! I read The Bone Season & The Mime Order maybe 2 years ago, maybe longer and I picked a copy of this one up straight away but never actually read it. I think i will definitely need to read an overview of Book 1 & 2 before starting this one.
Potions – Next Ingredient: Sequel
This is book 2 to This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada. I absolutely loved This Mortal Coil so I can’t wait to read this book!
Ancient Runes – Retelling
This is a Frankenstein retelling. So fits the challenge perfectly. I have been wanting to read another book by Mackenzi Lee as I absolutely love the Montague Siblings series.
Arithmancy – Work written by more than one author
This has 4 contributors so it’s perfect for this challenge. I have been making my way through this series and I am really enjoying it. The artwork is absolutely gorgeous!
Astronomy – “Star” in the title
This is pretty self explanatory. Ruin of STARs is the second book to Mask of Shadows which I read and enjoyed last year.
Defence of Magical Creatures – Land animal on the cover
I’m cheating slightly as the first letter is A, but I don’t have anything else that fits. So I’m using it!
Divination – Set in the future
This was recommended to me when I asked in a Facebook Group for books set in the future. I can’t find anywhere in the description if this is set in the future so I hope that is correct.
History of Magic – Published at least 10 years ago
This was published in 1936, so definitely more than 10 years old! I have been making my way through the Hercule Poirot series and this is the next book I’m up to.
Muggle Studies – Contemporary
This has been on my TBR for ages, so I’m glad to be finally getting to it hopefully.
Transfiguration – Sprayed Edges OR red cover
Another self explanatory one, the cover has red on it. I’ve been meaning to read more by this author as I read The Iron King a while ago and really enjoyed it.
What career have you chosen to strive for this year?
