N.E.W.T.s Read-a-thon ’18 • TBR

Back in April, I participated in the OWLs read-a-thon, created by G from Book Roast. It was honestly the most fun read-a-thon I ever participated in and I was so excited when G announced the follow-up: N.E.W.T.s. She explains it more in this video, and in this post, I will share my TBR with you. During the OWLs I passed ten out of twelve subjects, which means I am allowed to do N.E.W.T.s for the following subjects: Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, Astronomy, Care of Magical Creatures Class, Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Divination, History of Magic, Muggle Studies and Transfiguration.

I managed to include the seven books I already had on my TBR for August (marked with *), and hopefully, I’ll be able to read all of them. That does mean I’ll need to read the other books first, if it’s in the Outstanding category, but hey with the way my reading has been going this year – I think I’ll manage! If you want to keep up with my read-a-thon progress, you can follow me on Twitter!

Are you participating in the N.E.W.T.s read-a-thon? If so, what are the subjects you’re going to go for? Let me know in a comment and good luck on your exams!
