The N.E.W.T.’S Magical Readathon – My TBR!

Hi all!

I’m back with my N.E.W.T.’S Magical Readathon TBR! In April, I participated in the O.W.L.’S Magical Readathon and finished with an overall grade of EE: Exceeds Expectations. Now it’s time for the sequel, and in order to pass my N.E.W.T.’S, I need to complete 7 exams in one month. Hopefully I can do it! If you want to read about my O.W.L.S’s experience, you can click here (TBR) and here (Wrap-Up). The TBR contains more information about how the readathon works.

The N.E.W.T.’S are definitely a step-up from the O.W.L.’S. As you may remember, the Wizarding Career that I picked was a Magizoologist. If you look at the bottom right of the image below, you’ll see I need an O (Outstanding) in Care of Magical Creatures, an E (Exceeds Expectation) in Charms and an E (Exceeds Expectations) in Herbology in order to pass my N.E.W.T.’S.

So now, let’s move onto the prompts and how they work. To get an O in Care of Magical Creatures, I have to complete the A and E prompt as well as the O prompt. To get an E in Charms, I need to complete the A prompt and the E prompt. To get an E in Herbology, I must complete the A prompt and the E prompt. Does this make sense? You cannot get to the O without going through the A and E first. If  you tally this, that is 7 books in total I am required to read. In April, I read 7 books, so I’m confident I can do this again…I hope! If you need more clarification, please watch Book Roast’s Video explaining everything.

I’m so excited to read another Morgan Matson book and as you can see, it starts with A!

Amy Curry’s year sucks. And it’s not getting any better. Her mother has decided to move, so somehow Amy has to get their car from California to the East Coast. There’s just one problem: since her father’s death Amy hasn’t been able to get behind the wheel of a car. Enter Roger, the son of a family friend, who turns out to be funny, nice . . . and unexpectedly cute. But Roger’s plans involve a more “scenic” route than just driving from A to B, so suddenly Amy finds herself on the road trip of a lifetime. And, as she grows closer to Roger, Amy starts to realise that sometimes you have to get lost to find your way home…

Mariko has always known that being a woman means she’s not in control of her own fate. But Mariko is the daughter of a prominent samurai and a cunning alchemist in her own right, and she refuses to be ignored. When she is ambushed by a group of bandits known as the Black Clan en-route to a political marriage to Minamoto Raiden – the emperor’s son – Mariko realises she has two choices: she can wait to be rescued… or she can take matters into her own hands, hunt down the clan and find the person who wants her dead. Disguising herself as a peasant boy, Mariko infiltrates the Black Clan’s hideout and befriends their leader and his second-in-command. But as Mariko gets closer to the Black Clan, she uncovers a dark history of secrets that will force her to question everything she’s ever known.

HERBOLOGY (A EXAM) – LISTEN TO AN AUDIO BOOK OR READ A BOOK WITH A GREEN COVER 

518zN4ZSZiL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_

I have wanted to read this book for ages! It definitely has a lot of green on the cover. Listening to an audio book is a little bit hard with a 1 year old around so lucky I have the other option.

A young bisexual British lord embarks on an unforgettable Grand Tour of Europe with his best friend/secret crush. Henry “Monty” Montague doesn’t care that his roguish passions are far from suitable for the gentleman he was born to be. But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quests for pleasure and vice are in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy. So Monty vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

My copy of this book is 388 pages so it meets the prompt.

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout.
Once dubbed ‘America’s Fattest Teen’, she is only seen for her weight. Not the girl underneath. Since her mum’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in private, alone with her heartbroken father. But now, Libby is ready. She’s ready for high school, for new friends, for love and for every possibility life has to offer.
Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin too.
Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the art of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a secret: he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. When Jack and Libby meet, they discover that the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel.

I hope you like my TBR! It may seem ambitious but some of my prompts involve reading shorter books which should make it easier. Have you read any of these books? Are you doing the N.E.W.T.’S too? If so, share your TBR with me. I would love to read them! There is still time to participate. You have from the 1st – 31st August, so get cracking! Happy reading! 

Peace & Love xoxo
