Magical Readathon Orilium: Autumn Equinox

Updated: Aug 25, 2022



I have been eagerly awaiting August as I knew this readathon was going to be happening. This readathon being the Magical Readathon which is hosted by Book Roast! I have participated in Orilium since the beginning, and I wasn't going to miss out on this semester.


If you are unaware, the Magical Readathon is a readathon where you have the choice to build a character, pick a career path, and do optional side quests. Each of these requires you to complete a series of prompts and a given book of your choosing.


The readathon takes place during August for the entirety of the month, so there is plenty of time to read a ton of books (hopefully). If you are curious about participating, you can watch the announcement video here.



 



Last semester, we only had to read one book per subject. That was last semester though, as for this semester we need a specific grade in order to be qualified for my chosen job. It is a stacked system, so some subjects will require you to read several books in order to qualify.


In order to do so, for my chosen profession, I have to read a grand total of 7 books, which is entirely doable. I may have a small issue though seeing as there are optional quests you can do so...now I have more than 7 to read.


Onto the books I am planning on reading!
