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:
