My second TBR of the day! Don’t worry, there will be a 3rd too, just maybe not today
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.
E: Exceeds Expectations
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!
A: Ehwaz (partnership) – Read recommended by a friend
E: Book written in past tense
O: Book that has been on your TBR of ages
A: Book that ends on an even number
E: Read a standalone
O: Book that’s longer than 350 pages

O: Cornish Pixie! Swat it away with a book written by an English author or set in England
A: Read a white book
E: Read a short story or a collection of short stories
