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!

Beat the Bingo ReadAThon TBR!

So, I’ve been extremely inactive on my blog lately. Between Biannual Bibliothon, MedievalAThon & The Reading Rush I have been super busy & next month is probably going to be the same. I will be participating in NEWTs Edition of Magical ReadAThon (Month long), Beat the Bingo ReadAThon (Month long) & the Harry Potter Edition of Fantasy JourneyAThon (10th – 19th)!

Beat the Bingo ReadAThon is taking place over in the Facebook Group The YA Book Nerds which I run. You can join the group HERE!

I have chosen books for all the challenges except for the ‘Previous YA Book Nerds BOTM’ because as the organiser of the group I have read all the Group Books as I was the one that choose them & made the discussion questions. So I’ve just left this as a free choice for myself.

Read a book with a Male MC

Reread a Favourite

Read a book with a blue cover

Listen to an Audiobook

Read a fantasy book

Read a book with a plant on the cover

Read a Sci-Fi

Read a Graphic Novel

Read a book with multiple POV

Read a book under 250 pages

Read a Diverse Book

Read a book with gold on the cover

Read the Group Book

Read a Dystopian Book

Read a book set in the future

Read a book with red on the cover

Read a mystery book

Read a book by an Author of colour

Read an Own Voices book

Read a 2019 release

Read a book over 300 pages

Read a Historical Book

Read a book with yellow on the cover

Read a Middle Grade book

My TBR is a bit ambitious but I tried to choose a decent amount of Graphic Novels & Audiobooks! There are 14 books, 7 Audiobooks & 3 Graphic Novels! So fingers crossed I can complete as many as possible!

Have you read any of these books? Did you love them? Hate them? Let me know!
Also, let me know if you’re participating as well!

Purchase any of the books mentioned from BOOK DEPOSITORY! World Wide FREE shipping and awesome prices? Can’t say no to that!

The Fantasy AdventureAThon TBR

This ReadAThon runs from 25th to 31st of March and I am so keen! So the basics of this ReadAThon is to start at the bottom of the map & make your way up! So I will leave the map & the prompt meanings below. You can also check out all the details HERE!

Also I am in Team Mermaid!

Team #FantasyMermaid

My TBR

So I will not be aiming for all the challenges but I will explain that as I go!

Fellowship

Read the Group Book

This is the first challenge I will not be completing as I have already read the group book which is A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab!

Cliff

Read a book with a nature word in the title

The Storm Keeper’s Island by Catherine Doyle

Rat

Read a book with brown on the cover

The Wicked + The Divine: Vol 5 by Gillen McKelvie & Wilson Cowles

Fate

Read a book set in the past

Beastly Bones by William Ritter

Bewilderment

Read a book with a plot twist

This is the other challenge I will not be doing as I found it super hard to figure out what books have a plot twist that I own. All the lists I found online where older books that I had either read or didn’t own and I was not going out to buy a book just for this challenge. So SKIP!

Adventure

Read the first book in a a series

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Birgid Kemmerer

Potion

Read a book while drinking a drink

The Wicked + The Divine: Vol 6 by Gillen McKelvie & Wilson Cowles

So that is everything on my TBR! I’m so keen for this ReadAThon as its been a while since I participated in a ReadAThon with prompts.

Let’s Chat!

Ditching the TBR Posts

Copy of Header Image (6).png

Some of you may know that my life has been busy as hell lately! Not only am I running my own Beauty Therapy Salon, working as a Lifeguard, managing my photography business, running The YA Book Nerds on Facebook, Organising a Secret Santa round of The Book Nerds Book Exchange on Facebook, helping with the local Hospital Auxiliary, making candles & book sleeves for my Etsy shop and trying to find time to sleep, I also have to find time to read and blog in there somewhere.

I am well and truly behind on ARCs and I have to keep on top of the books that I have to read for my Facebook Group The YA Book Nerds as I need to write discussion questions each month. So because of all that I have decided to ditch monthly TBR posts to take the pressure off for a few months. Basically, I will only be reading ARC/Review Copies & BOTMs for The YA Book Nerds for the next couple of months. So instead of posting a monthly TBR, in this post I will share all the ARCs I currently have that I need to get to and also the November & December BOTMs for The YA Book Nerds (I don’t know what we will be reading in January as we won’t vote on that until mid-December).

Blog titles (2)

The Knife of Never Letting Go Discussion is on the 24th of Nov.
Dates for Broken Things & And I Darken discussions are not yet released.

Blog titles (3)

Let’s just not mention the fact that some of these released last month, oh and the month before that…

So yes, this is basically my TBR for the next, I don’t know how long! As for audiobooks, I will just read whatever I feel like at the time. I am going to try and get the audiobook of The Knife of Never Letting Go for this months discussion, that way I know I will get it done in time for the discussion!

September 2018 TBR

Copy of Header Image (2)

First off I will be doing 2 ReadAThons in September. The first will not have a TBR as it is the TBR Jar ReadAThon and I don’t know what I’ll be reading until it starts and I pull the names out of the jar. The other, Banned Books ReadAThon, will have its own TBR.

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

This is one of the BOTMs for The YA Book Nerds, the Facebook Group I run. So I need to read this to create the discussion questions. I am also trying to get a couple people together to do a buddy read for this one between the 1st and 7th (TBR Jar RAT starts on the 8th).

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnston

Truly Devious will be a reread. This is also the other BOTM for The YA Book Nerds. I listened to Truly Devious on audiobook a while back and LOVED it! So I want to reread via the physical book & annotate it. Still waiting for it to come in the mail though!

Stalking Jack the Ripper & Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Both of these are Rereads. I’ve read SJTR twice now & HPD once. All those reads were via audiobook and I want to reread the physical book and annotate before Escaping From Houdini comes out! I’ve already started SJTR.

The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee 

This is another reread! We are reading The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats & Piracy in October as a Group Read on The YA Book Nerds. So I want to reread Gentlemen’s Guide!

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

It’s the second month in ADarkerShadeOfReadALongs and we are reading A Gathering of Shadows!

We Three Heroes by Lynette Noni

This is a Novella that goes with my second favourite series of all time. This released on the 29th and I’m anxiously waiting for it to ship!!

August 2018 TBR

Header Image (16)

Okay, so this won’t be a full TBR. Due to BookTubeAThon which is the first 5 days of August, Also Magical ReadAThon is the entirety of August. So that will be most of the books I will be reading in August. However, I do have a couple others I need to get to. So that are the ones I will feature here.

July 2018 TBR

Header Image (12)

Okay, so this will be a weird month! First off I haven’t decided on most of my TBR. Now the first part of the month will be dedicated to TBR Jar ReadAThon & Tome Topple ReadAThon and if you want to know what my possible reads for that are, then check out my TBR video below!

Next, Biannual Bibliothon is being held from the 14th till 20th & they haven’t announced the reading challenges yet! Which is also really freaking annoying as its only about 2 weeks until it starts & now it is too late to purchase anything online as it won’t get here in time… So I have no idea what I will read for that.

Lastly, BookTubeAThon is on at the end of July and into August. No reading challenges for that one yet either.

So I only have about a week or so of actual reading time in between all those ReadAThons. So I won’t have a tonne of times. But there is a couple of books that I want to read!

Well, that is all for this weird TBR. Keep an eye out for my Biannual Bibliothon TBR & BooktubeAThon later in the month!!
