It’s almost time for the NEWTs! If you don’t know what NEWTs are, I highly suggest you watch this video from G/BookRoast! I already posted a recommendations post a while back, but if you’re still looking for books for your TBR, I am going to post my entire TBR here. First of all I’ll share the books I need to read for my career, Curse Breaker, and then I’ll share the other books (and/or comics) I hope to read this August!
Ancient Runes (Outstanding)
A) Ends on an Even Page Number: Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
E) Standalone: They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
O) Over 350 pages: Aru Shah and the Song of Death by Roshani Chokshi
A) A Book with a Gorgeous Cover: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal
Defence Against the Dark Arts (Exceeds Expectations)
That is my fixed TBR for my career, nine books I really want to read in August. Below, I have picked books for the other subjects as well, though I might switch them up with graphic novels/comics if I can’t get to them next month!
Care of Magical Creatures
Defence Against the Dark Arts (cont.)
O) English Author/Takes Place in England: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows
A) Book with a white cover: Vengeful by V.E. Schwab
E) Novella/Short Story Collection: The Dagger in the Desk by Jonathan Stroud
O) Last Acquired Book: Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down by Gina McIntyre
History of Magic
A) Friend’s Favourite Book: Alanna the First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
E) House Colours (Green and Silver): The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
O) Starts with a Prologue: The Drowning by Rachel Ward
A) Queer Rep: Switchback by Danika Stone (asexual rep)
E) Sequel: Lirael by Garth Nix
O) Over 500 Pages: Spellslinger by Sebastian de Castell
(Now if you’ve seen G’s video, you know we’re allowed to use Spellslinger (which is the unofficial group book, as in you can read it but it’s not a must) to fit any prompt)
And that concludes my TBR for the NEWTs in August! What are you reading? What career are you doing? Let me know!
