I really like readathons, they are so much fun! But I don’t like Harry Potter and this is a Harry Potter themed readathon, so the past two years I haven’t participated, but I need something to look forward too right now so I’m jumping in. This feels like a complicated readathon, another reason I haven’t participated in previous years, so I’ll just link the announcement video here. It’s created and hosted by Book Roast on Youtube.
As far as I understand the rules, you choose a job from the booklet she created and then read books to fit the prompts for the courses you need to pass to have that job. I chose to try for the career of Trader of Magical Tomes. To get that job I need to take four classes. Ancient Runes, Charms, History of Magic, and Transfiguration.
The last book I ordered from Amazon says it won’t be here until the end of June so I can’t purchase any new books to fit the prompts. I can’t use the library because it’s closed. And almost all of my owned books are at our new house already and we won’t be there until sometime in April. So I had some trouble trying to choose books I own that fit the prompts without being able to look at my books. So some of these may change once I get all of my books again. For the time being though, these are the books I’ve chosen to fill the four prompts I need for the challenge.
Ancient Runes- a book with a heart on the cover or in the title
The only book I could think of that I own with a heart on the cover is Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren
Charms- A book with a white cover
For this I searched Google images for books with white covers and fount one I know I own: Dear Martin by Nic Stone
History of Magic- a book featuring witches or wizards
I can’t think of a book I own physically with witches or wizards, but I do own The All Souls Trilogy on my Kindle. I will try to read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness for this prompt.
Transfiguration- a book that features shapeshifting
This was definitely the hardest prompt for me. All I found was strange looking shifter romance and I don’t think that’s what I want to read. I found a book titled Moon Called by Patricia Briggs on my library app when I searched for books about shifters on Overdrive, so I’ll try to read this on ebook if I can get the hold in from the library before the month is over.
Are you participating in this readathon? Do you have a recommendation for a book with shapeshifting?
