Who Tells Your Story — The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried by Shaun David Hutchinson.
The World Was Wide Enough — Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young.
The Election of 1800 — The True Queen (Sorcerer Royal #2) by Zen Cho.
What’d I Miss? — An Artificial Night (October Daye #3) by Seanan McGuire.
Take a Break — Reaper Man (Discworld #11) by Terry Pratchett.
The group book is one I’ve already read, so I’ve decided to go with one of the options which wasn’t chosen but was included in the vote (it helps that I was planning to read Stain later in the challenge anyway, so I’ll double that up). I’m double up two books at the moment, so I’ll have a five book TBR, but if by some miracle I finish early, I can switch the last book to something else.
Fellowship: group read –

Which means that I’ll be on #TeamFantasyUnicorn! Are you on my team?
OWLs Readathon 2019
I’m going to do my best to read as many OWLs prompts as I can. I don’t think I’ll get all 12 because some of the prompts don’t really appeal to me, but we’ll see. Then, in August, when it’s time for the NEWTs, I’ll take a better look at the careers pack Book Roast has created (it’s amazing by the way) and use whatever OWLs I’ve got to guide my NEWTs/ career choices. To be honest, this seems like the unprepared way I would have actually fell into a post-Hogwarts career so…

I’ve not seen the series, but this readathon looked too much fun to miss! I was originally going to try for the sceptic characters path, because that’s the one I think I would be most drawn to, but I preferred the believer’s prompts so I’ll be off on an adventure.
