August is soon upon us!
I particiapated in the OWLs Readathon back in April, hosted by the lovely BookRoast, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I managed to exceed my criteria to pass my OWLs by one book – I’ve been in a bit of slump lately though, so I guess we shall see how the NEWTs go!
My chosen career is Hogwarts Professor, which means I need to read a total of 7 books to pass my NEWTs exams – the criteria being:
- O (3 books) in the subject I’d like to teach (History of Magic)
- E (2 books) in Defence Against the Dark Arts
- A (1 book) in two additional subjects of my choice
So, based on this I’ve created the following TBR list:
O in History of Magic
A – Read a Fantasy Nevernight – Jay Kristoff
E – Read a book that includes a map Godsgrave – Jay Kristoff
O – Tom Riddle’s diary: fond memory, re-read a favourite (or read a classic) The Turn of the Screw – Henry James
E in Defence Against the Dark Arts
A – A book that’s black under the duct jacket The Slow Regard of Silent Things – Patrick Rothfuss
E – Gilderoy’s Memory Charm: (grab a pen!) first book that you remembered just now from your TBR Obsidio – Amie Kaufman & Jat Kristoff
A in two additional subjects of my choice
A – Read a book you think has a gorgeous cover The Binding – Bridget Collins
A – Polyjuice potion: read your friends favourite book Harry Potter is my friends favourite, so I’ll be reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
