First off I won’t be making an August TBR as between this & my BooktubeAThon TBR that covers the entirety of August. There will only be one other book added and that is whatever gets chosen as the BOTM for The YA Book Nerds.
Okay, so some of you may remember me taking my OWLs a few months back during the Magical ReadAThon! Well, now I’m ready to take my NEWTs!
This ReadAThon goes for the entirety of August.
How this round will work is all of the subjects that you completed during your OWLs you now have a chance to get a NEWT for. So you can only do the subjects you completed last time. Also, this round is a little different. Last time you were graded on how many subjects you were able to complete but this round there are 3 grades for each subject. So each subject has three challenges. One for Acceptable, on for Exceeds Expectations & one for Outstanding. These challenges also need to be completed in order. So you have to work your way from A, to E, to O.
You can find the announcement video HERE
Now onto the subjects, I completed in my OWLs:
Care of Magical Creatures
So now I will go through each subject and list the challenges & what I hope to read for each challenge. This TBR will be mainly audiobooks as I am still in a huge reading slump, it may be gone by the time this starts but I just don’t know. Of course, there may be alterations between this and what I actually read. I will have to fit the August The YA Book Nerds BOTM into this month somewhere & there is also the rest of my BooktubeAThon TBR. I fit some in but there are others.
