The N.E.W.T.S Magical Readathon is hosted by Book Roast on YouTube & I’ll link her video with all the information regarding the readathon HERE.
The career I have chosen is to be a Hogwarts Professor and teach Charms, honestly because I would love to live at Hogwarts full time and I think Charms is such a fun, crucial subject in a young witch/wizards magical education! So to pass my NEWTS I need an O in Charms and E in Defense Against the Dark Arts and at least 2 A’s in secondary subjects of my choice which equals to 7 books in all that I need to complete for the NEWTS. If I have time throughout the month I am still going to try and complete as many of the other prompts that I can!
So the prompts and my TBR for the NEWTs are:
A: Read a book that has a gorgeous cover
E: Read a comic / manga / graphic novel (or book under 150 pages)
O: Spongify (softening charm) – read a paperback book
A: Book that’s black under the dust jacket
E: Gilderoy’s Memory Charm – first book that I remembered just now from my TBR!
A: Read a Fantasy
A: Read a book with LGBTQA+ Representation
I have made the executive decision to participate in this year’s Reading Rush! I am super excited because I have never really officially participated in a read-a-thon before and I figured since this is the one I have heard about the most I would give it a try! I am going to do the most and try to finish 7 books and fulfill all of the reading challenge! I’m not going to put too much pressure on myself if don’t end up reading 7 books, but I don’t have anything going on next week so I should be ok! Fingers Crossed 🤞🏾
So the Reading Challenges and my TBR consists of:
1/ Read a book with purple on the cover – Geekerella by Ashley Postan
2/ Read a book in the same spot the entire time – A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
3/ Read a book you meant to read last year– Vengeful by V.E. Schwab
4/ Read an author’s first book – Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
5/ Read a book with a non-human main character – the long way to a small angry planet by Becky Chambers
6/ Pick a book that has five or more words in the title – Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
