Good morning my dears!
What do you know, my O.W.L.S wrap-up and N.E.W.T.S TBR is late. Honestly, one day I will get better at getting things done on time and procrastinating less…. Anyway, I digress. Today’s post is my N.E.W.T.S TBR, while my O.W.L.S wrap-up will be coming soon.
The month of July was not a particularly good reading month for me, I did however manage to pass 9 O.W.L.S including; Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Divination, Herbology, The History of Magic and Muggle Studies. So in terms of which career path I took, my options were pretty open. In the end I decided to go for a journalist for the Daily Prophet. For that I need the following Charms, History of Magic, Muggle Studies and one more of my choice (I’ve gone for Ancient Runes)
In order to achieve an Outstanding in any particular subject, you must read the books in order, so for example, A (acceptable) first, followed by E (exceeded exceptions) and finally O (Outstanding)
A – Read a book with magic in it – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling (audiobook)
E – Read a book with a cover that charmed you – Circe by Madeline Miller
0 – A book you think will leave a mark – Floored by various authors
History of Magic
A – A Book that would fit in at Hogwarts library – Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman
E – A book published at least 5 years ago – The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
O – A book at least 400 pages long – The Secret Barrister
A – Read a book written by one of you favourite authors – Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss
E – Read a biography – I am I am I am by Maggie O’Farrell
O – Read a retelling – Slience of the Girls by Pat Barker
A – A book set in the past – The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell
E – One of the most ancient books on your shelf – Everland by Rebecca Hunt
O – A book translated from another language – A Game We Play by Simona Vinci
And there we have it! My N.E.W.T.S TBR! I would love to you if you’re taking part and would love to see what you are planning to read! To get more information on the readathon you can check out their Twitter account here.
Edit: I’ve just realised that my picture didn’t include The Secret Barrister, what a numpty!
Peace and pages
