NEWTs Edition – Magical ReadAThon TBR

My second TBR of the day! Don’t worry, there will be a 3rd too, just maybe not today

ReadAThon Announcement!

If you don’t know already Magical ReadAThon is a 2 part ReadAThon that occurs in April & August. The first part is your OWLs. In this round you read books to receive grades in Hogwarts Subjects. The NEWTs is similar but each subject has three grades you can receive.
A: Acceptable
E: Exceeds Expectations
O: Outstanding
The overall goal of the ReadAThon is to aim for a wizarding Career. There are specific subjects during the OWLs & NEWTs that you need to complete to get specific careers. I am aiming for Magizoologist!

So, for NEWTs I need to get an O in Care of Magical Creatures, E in Charms & E in Herbology. I have chosen books for more than just those subjects though. I am participating in the Beat the Bingo ReadAThon as well. So I just kinda made books fit into the NEWTs challenges!

  1. It’s NEWT’s time again!!! I am so exited! I am also reading Wilder Girls during the month so I am excited to see what we both think! The Woods is also one of my fave sci-fi graphic novels so I hope you love it as much as I do!
