✨O.W.L.S Magical Readathon TBR ✨

For April I decided to take part in the O.W.L.S Magical Readathon hosted by Book Roast on Youtube, for any information regarding the readathon see her announcement video HERE. I’m not 100% sure what my career is going to be so I am going to try and complete all of the prompts for this round and then when it comes to the N.E.W.T.S I will announce which career path I choose in that TBR!
