NEWTS Readathon 2019 TBR

Good morning my loves!

I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT TODAY’S POST. I have been planning this post for a whole month – ever since the announcement video dropped at the end of June. I have chopped and changed, swapped books out for different ones, and now I have finally settled on my choices for the NEWTS Readathon 2019! Now, I did my OWLS back in April and I actually managed to pass them all, meaning that this year, I could pick whatever career I fancied. This year I have picked the most difficult (typical) career – Alchemist. So, if all goes according to plan, I will be reading 17 book! Wish me luck!

  1. Wonderful TBR Amy! The Five, The Optickal Illusion, Their Brilliant Careers and Mansfield & Me all look really interesting. I am excited that we are all going to be reading Endless Nights together this upcoming month. I have been meaning to read another one of her stories for a while now. Best of luck on your NEWTs!
