Magical Readathon #NEWTSReadathon2019 Update Post

A little note before I continue with the #NEWTSReadathon2019 post… I’ve decided to go on a short blogging break to see if I’ll be able to get rid of the blogging slump that way. This basically means I won’t be posting any new content on It’s All About Books until August 21st and I will be limiting my time on social media as well. (Twitter is probably your best shot if you need to get hold of me before then.)

Looking forward to some self care and see you in two weeks! ❤ ❤

Remember I signed up for the N.E.W.T.s Readathon last month? I’ve decided to make a separate update post again to keep track of my progress. The Magical Readathon: N.E.W.T.s edition runs from August 1st to August 31st… Back in April I participated in the O.W.L.s, and after passing all twelve Hogwarts subjects I had a free pass for any career. I’ve decided to officially go for the Magizoologist career this year, which means I will be concentrating on the N.E.W.T.s for Care Of Magical Creatures, Charms and Herbology.

Magical Readathon #NEWTSReadathon2019 TBR

It’s almost time for another Magical Readathon! In case you hadn’t heard of this readathon before, it’s a Harry Potter themed readathon hosted by the wonderful Book Roast and divided into two parts: the O.W.L.s in April and the N.E.W.T.s in August. The  readathon runs the whole month of August and you can find more details in the video below!

 

Back in April I participated in the O.W.L.s, and after passing all twelve Hogwarts subjects I had a free pass for any career. I’ve decided to officially go for the Magizoologist career this year, which means I will be concentrating on the N.E.W.T.s for Care Of Magical Creatures, Charms and Herbology. Below I’ll reveal a tentative TBR, which might change as there are still two weeks left before the readathon starts and who knows what I might read until then. 😉

First up the subjects needed for the Magizoologist career! For this career I need an O in Care Of Magical Creatures, and E in Charms and an E in Herbology, which basically means I need to read 7 books before the end of August… The needed titles are highlighted in the picture below and the prompt descriptions are on the left.

I don’t think I’ll be able to read the amount I did last year and complete almost all subjects (especially since I’ve decided to go on a two-week blogging break in August), but I’ve made a tentative TBR for the remaining nine Hogwarts subjects and we’ll see if I can manage to pass them all with an Acceptable at least. I won’t be stressing too much about reading them all though, but I guess it does help that a lot of these titles are books I can’t wait to read in the first place. 😉


Are you joining the N.E.W.T.s readathon this year? Have you read any of the titles on my TBR yourself? Any title you think I should read first?

N.E.W.T.s Readathon: The Results Are In! #NEWTsReadathon2018

Remember I signed up for the N.E.W.T.s Readathon in August? Here are the results! I did this adapted readathon from August 31st to September 30th; 31 days of reading like a maniac to get as many prompts and subjects as possible. Because yes, as a true Ravenclaw and with my inner Hermione talking, of course I had to try and get at least an Acceptable in all Hogwarts subjects.

And guess what: I did! Oh yes, somehow I managed to read no less than 28 out of the 36 books I had selected for the different prompts. I admit a few were supershort reads, but overall I’m really happy with just how much I was able to read. First a full list of my grades… I managed to get the highest Outstanding grade for most of the subjects I wanted, so I consider this readathon a success.

# Hogwards Subjects #

– Charms (O) Outstanding
– Defense Against The Dark Arts (O) Outstanding
– Potions (O) Outstanding
– Transfiguration (O) Outstanding
– Arithmancy (O) Outstanding
– Herbology (E) Exceeded Expectations
– Ancient Runes (O) Outstanding
– Astronomy (A) Acceptable
– Care Of Magical Creatures (E) Exceeded Expectations
– History Of Magic (E) Exceeded Expectations
– Muggle Studies (A) Acceptable
– Divination (E) Exceeded Expectations

So which books did I read for the challenge? I’ll share my graphics again and then give a full list of them below.

N.E.W.T.s Readathon: Official Update Post #NEWTsReadathon2018

Remember I signed up for the N.E.W.T.s Readathon a few days ago? I’ve decided to make a separate update post again to keep track of my progress.

I will be doing this readathon from August 31st to September 30th; 31 days of reading like a maniac to get as many prompts and subjects as possible. Because yes, as a true Ravenclaw and with my inner Hermione talking, of course I have to try and get at least an Acceptable in all Hogwarts subjects. The first six subjects are priority though, and as the readathon states I need to get at least one Outstanding as well.

I’m looking forward to see how many books I’ll be able to read before the end of the month!

N.E.W.T.s Readathon: TBR #NEWTsReadathon2018

I first heard about the N.E.W.T.s Readathon earlier this month when I read Kelly’s post, and as a huge Potter nerd I of course knew I HAD to join straight away. Problem: I never did sit my O.W.L.s, and everybody knows that without O.W.L.s it’s impossible to sit the N.E.W.T.s… So instead of doing the N.E.W.T.s readathon along with everybody in August, I decided to do my O.W.L.s first. Things went waaay better than planned so I managed to actually read books for all TWELVE subjects, meaning I can sit for any N.E.W.T. I want.

But first credit where credit is due. Both readathons are hosted by the wonderful Book Roast and you can find the introduction to this readathon below with all the necessary information.

 As a true Ravenclaw and with my inner Hermione talking, I’m actually going to try and get at least an Acceptable for each of the subjects. What? Reading so many books in only a month? Yes, I know it’s kind of crazy, but I’m going to try anyway haha. Below you can find my tentative TBR for the readathon… Subjects and prompts are on the left, with book covers for each prompt and grade next to them. The first six Hogwarts subjects I want to get no matter what; the second group is more optional.

Words cannot describe how excited I am about this particular readathon! I will be starting on August 31st and reading like a maniac until September 30th (I’ve added an extra day to get the full 31 days). Bring it on, N.E.W.T.s!
