N.E.W.T.S Readathon 2018

September 14, 2018

 

Hello again!

 

So I’m sure I’m not the only person who was slightly started by how fast the year is going by and had been slacking on their personal reading goals for the year so when I came across the Magical Readathon N.E.W.T.S. reading challenge for August I jumped at the chance to get back into the guardrails of my reading goal for the year and make my TBR get away from the one hundred book mark. I decided that even though I did not sit my O.W.L.S. in the spring, that I would try and read enough books to cover all of the challenges for the N.E.W.T.S. and somehow, I managed to do it! These are the books that I read and the challenges that each met as per the guide that I was using:

By reading these books I was able to meet all three possible challenges for each course and pass them all! Naturally a Harry Potter themed challenge already had my attention but the amount of planning and searching I had to do to get the right books to make this doable was such a blast. I plan to try a few more challenges this year to knock down my TBR even more before all of the new releases for 2019 start to pop up. 

 

How are you guys doing on your reading goals? Did you also sit your N.E.W.T.S.? How did you do? 

 

 

Always, 

 

 

Britney
