N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon | TBR

Let the NEWTs commence!

I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump recently, but there’s nothing better than a readathon and challenges to kick me into gear. Enter Book Roast’s NEWTS readathon.

So, my soft goal is to go for Hogwarts Professor, with will mean reading 7 books. That’s super manageable if I’m in a normal mood, but on par for my reading recently. I’ll focus on Transfiguration exams, but also include Potions and Charms exams. (For the full list of challenges and other details, check out Book Roast’s list here.

But if I get my ~groove~ back soon, I’ll shoot for the stars 🌌 and attempt earning enough NEWTs to be an Alchemist (aka reading 19 books).

But for this TBR’s purposes, I’m going with the Hogwarts Professor path:

Nonfiction November TBR | Readathon

Happy Tuesday, book worms! Today I’m bringing you my Nonfiction November TBR. This is a readathon that’s hosted by Olive (A Book Olive) and Gemma (Non Fic Books). I really enjoy reading nonfiction, but I also revamped my love of SFF books this year so I haven’t read nearly as many as I wanted to so far in 2018.  I won’t be reading only nonfiction (I’ll be throwing in some fiction as my buddy reads), but I do want to read a majority nonfiction.

August Wrap-Up (NEWTs Readathon) | 29 books!

I know we’re nearly half way into September, but I hope you’ll give me a pass for having just started this blog back up.

For the month of August, I sat for my NEWTs Exams (started by Book Roast on YouTube). Back in April I passed all of my OWL exams so I had the potential to sit all of my NEWTs. Preparing for the month I felt like I might comfortably complete my average number of books, around 15 books. But apparently I fell into a time loop because I managed 29 (!!) books.

Into the books!
