*I am BEYOND EXCITED to participate in N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon in August! I have been looking forward to it since, well, since April this year when I did the O.W.L.s readathon. I cannot wait to share my tbr with you for NEWTs. If you’re new to all this and I’m speaking a foreign language, don’t worry! I’ll make sure I link you up to all the info you need to participate in the post. Ok! Let’s get to it!

It's time for NEWTs 2019 readathon! Here's my tbr for the NEWTs readathon hosted by Book_Roast.

The low down.

If you are completely new to the NEWTs readathon I need you to check out this video first! G or @book_roast is the original creator of this readathon. She is a genius and she blesses us with all of her extraness. We love her to pieces so please go check out her Youtube channel!

If you are not new to NEWTs or the Magical Readathon, welcome back! I’m so so excited for this readathon! I don’t know what it is about August but Fall is calling me and nothing sounds better than a month-long readathon. Of course, it’s Harry Potter themed so that makes it even more amazing!

Magical career: Librarian

As per the readathon rules, I will be continuing with my Librarian career for the readathon. I have three exams I need to pass, Ancient Runes with a required grade of Outstanding, Defense Against the Dark Arts with a passing grade of Exceeds Expectations, and History of Magic with a passing grade of Exceeds Expectations. This means I have seven books to read this month to become a Librarian.

Ok, let’s get into my actual TBR. I’ll also give you the prompts for each exam I need to pass.

Ancient Runes

Required Grade: Outstanding
Acceptable: Ehwaz (partnership) A book recommended by a friend
Exceeds Expectations: Book written in the past tense
Outstanding: Book that has been on your tbr for ages

NEWTs Reading Plan

Hopefully some of that made sense. If not really take a look at G’s videos on her Youtube channel! They are super helpful and you’ll really get the idea of what’s all involved with this readathon.

I plan to start the readathon with Days of Blood and Starlight. Hopefully, I’ll be able to complete all of my exams and be able to become a Librarian! I’m so excited for this readathon but I think I’ve mentioned this already. 😅

Well, that’s all I have for my NEWTs readathon tbr. I can’t wait for it to start! Only a few more hours and then it’s NEWTs time!

Happy reading,
