These magical readathon are honestly my favourite!
See all the NEWTs information here!
In April I participated in the OWLs readathon (My wrap up is here!). My goal was becoming an Alchemist, to pass all the necessary NEWTs I would have to read 17 books, which normally would be doable for me. But this August I have such a chaotic month (reasons for this are explained in Being less active post last week)! All fun stuff, but there won’t be so much time to read.. I still made a TBR for all the necessary subjects, and I will definitely do my best. But I won’t be mad at myself for not finishing. TBH I wanted to make a TBR for all, but I already know I won’t be able to do so.
