Hogwarts Reading Challenge

The moment I saw about this challenge (a couple minutes ago) I could not resist doing it! Anyone who knows me knows that I'm obsessed with Harry Potter and this is a wicked cool challenge! CLICK HERE to sign up.
The challenge started on March 8 and will be going on until December 13, 2010. First and foremost you must take the Sorting Hat quiz to determine which house you'll be in. The Hat has spoken and I have been put into.......

Ravenclaw! (I'm actually a bit surprised. I thought for sure I would've been put into Slytherin...you know because of my wicked and cunning ways!) :)

"Each book you read must fit in to the subject of one the classes. You do not have to read books that fit all the subjects. Each book equals one point (toward the house cup)." If you read a Harry Potter book that is worth 25 pts.

Transfiguration - read any book that has trans or figure in its title, is about shape shifting, has a shape shifter in it, or is about anything having to do with changing one thing into another
Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
Defence Against the Dark Arts - read any book that has defence(defense), dark and/or art(s) in its title, read any book that is about self defense, war, history of war/marital arts, murder mysteries
Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
Charms - read any book that has charm in its title, any book that deals with gives something or someone a new aspect (for example the nerdy guy become a handsome doctor)
Potions - read any book that has potion in its title, cookbooks count but you must cook at least one recipe out of the book
Astronomy - read any book that has astronomy in its title, books about planets, stars, etc, sci-fi
History of Magic - read any book that has history or magic in its title, books about magic, witches, etc
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Herbology - read any book that has herb in its title, again cookbooks count and again you must cook at least one recipe out of the book
Arithmancy - read any book that has arithmancy in its title, any book with a number in its title, any book that deal with numbers or math
Numbers by Rachel Ward
Ancient Runes - read any book that has ancient or runes in its title, books about historical places like the pyramids, Stonehenge, great wall of china, or any book about symbols
Divination - read any book that has divine in its title, any book about psychics or psychic abilities, tarot reading etc
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
Care of Magical Creatures - read any book that has magical or creatures in its title, about supernatural beings
Beautiful Creatures by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia
Muggle Studies - nearly any book works here, what better why to understand Muggle than to read what they read
I plan on reading a book for each category! I will be adding titles to this post as time goes on. Any suggestions for the categories I don't already have would be awesome! Especially for the potions and herbology one. I don't know any titles with herb or potion in it and I don't want to use a cookbook...

Welcome to the Hogwarts Reading Challenge . Just a reminder that points for March will be posted in April.

Also, list the books that you read for this challenge under the subject it fits (just like you have done) with the date you finished the book next to it.

Happy Reading

Ha, this sounds like fun! I'm so tempted...but I don't think I'd be able to finish it. Hope you have fun completing the challenge! :D
