I’m taking my NEWT’s!

This month I will be participating in the NEWT’s readathon organized by Book Roast on YouTube! I love the idea of this readathon! Back in April in participated in the OWL’s readathon and I absolutely loved it! You can only take NEWT’s in the courses that you passed during your OWL’s, and there are three different passing grades for the OWL’s. Acceptable, Exceeding expectations and Outstanding, for all different passing grades a different book needs to be read.

I passed Ancient runes, Arithmancy, Astronomy, Care of Magical creatures, Charms, Defense against the dark arts, Herbology and Transfiguration during the OWL’s I will try to do all of these in my NEWT’s #overachiever .

I tried to fit my books already on my physical TBR for this TBR and I think this worked out quite well! This is also because I really want to read all my physical books before I leave to Estonia (See that story here!).
