Dumbledore’s Army Readathon #DAReadAThon

I am quite excited – and probably a bit overly optimistic – about the Dumbledore’s Army Readathon, hosted by Aentee @ReadatMidnight.

What: #DAReadAThon is a Harry Potter themed readathon, focusing on diverse (especially #ownvoices) books.

When: The readathon will begin Sunday 1st January and conclude Sunday 15th January, midnight to midnight – wherever in the world you’re based.

Who: Anyone can join, although it would be easier for you to write-up your reviews and sign up posts if you had a platform such as a blog or a booktube. If you have a twitter or instagram account, please join in on the #DAReadAThon hashtag! You don’t have to be familiar with Harry Potter to join, but the prompts will make more sense to you.


and here is my TBR list for the prompts!





I haven’t read any fiction stories featuring a trans character yet, and George has been on my shelf for months waiting to be read!



A memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution, in graphic novel form!


At first, I was going to choose We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie for this prompt. Then I realized that the books I already plan to read on our drive home from Florida after New Year’s Day would work for this one as well! Since they are relatively short, I am going to count Ms. Marvel, Volumes 2 – 5 for this category.



The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian also happens to be my book club’s pick for January!



I’m hoping to read Fangirl over the next few days – although that may be wishful thinking – and planned on following it up with this one!



So many to choose from!

  1. This is a great list! For what feels like the first time ever, I have even read most of these books! I really enjoyed Ms. Marvel, and I hope you do too. Though, I am impressed you can read in the car. I can’t do that without getting car sick!

  2. Great list! I’m reading a book about a trans character as well for Expelliarmus – I almost picked George too but in the end I picked For Today I Am A Boy. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on George then! Carry On is one of my faves so I hope you’ll enjoy! And of course The Wrath and the Daws ❤ I'm hoping to read the sequel for the readathon.

  3. I love George 🙂 It was one of my favourite books of 2016 – I hope you enjoy it too! And I’ve recently picked up The Wrath and the Dawn, so I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts! 🙂

  4. sounds like good fun. I cant join unfortunately because I am swamped with reading for my course on children’s lit and only one HP book is on the reading list. So its back to Peter Pan for me today
