N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon 2019 Wrap-Up

newtswrapup

Wow, August was an absolutely insane month! Between my Hogwarts studies and my real life university studies, I can’t believe I’m still standing at this point. But, I successfully completed my first-ever readathon! And for it to be a Harry Potter-themed readathon makes it even more awesome. I had so much fun taking (and passing!) my N.E.W.T.s. I’m so happy I gave this a try. In total, I ended up reading twelve books which is more than I’ve read in a month in a while. So, without further ado, here is a look at my readathon results. I’m planning on having full reviews up for all of these at some point this month, so keep an eye out!

And now I’m a Mind Medic! I’m so pleased with how this readathon went and it’s made me really eager to do another one soon. I’m thinking of maybe doing the O.W.L.s readathon before the end of the year since I missed it, just so I can feel my studies are complete! How about you guys? Did any of you do the N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon this past month? If so, let me know how you did, or if not, let me know what your favorite books of the month were!

N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon 2019 TBR

newts2019tbr

I’ve been seeing these readathons going around a lot lately and I figured I should give one a try! I missed the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon, but I thought I would just jump in with this one anyway. These readathons were created by the incredible G over at Book Roast. For this readathon, you need to choose a profession, then complete the N.E.W.T.s prompts to receive the grades required for your chosen career. It was insanely difficult to choose a career as there are so many amazing ones! But I decided—since I’m a psychology major—to choose the Mind Medic profession.
