The NEWTs 2019 Readathon – August TBR

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Hey bookdragons!

Maybe you remember, in April, I participated in the OWLs challenge, organized by Book Roast. In a nutshell, a reading challenge inspired by the first level of Hogwarts exams! Well now, we are entering the second level of exams with the NEWTs! And this year, as we could choose a career to pursue, I’m gonna try to pass the necessary exams to become a Hogwarts Professor!!!! Yeah me!!

If you are interested, you can find the list of all the classes you can take here, and here a guide of all possible career choices (yup, Book Roast did an INCREDIBLE work on this challenge!)

Let’s see now what I need to read to get there 😉

My career: Hogwarts Professor


As you can see, for the NEWTs, I need an O in Charms (the subject I wish to teach) so that’s 3 books, then E in DATDA so 2 more books and finally at least 2 A’s in other topics. I have chosen Potions and Muggle Studies for 2 more books. So a total of 7 books to read. Of course, I planned some extras!! So let’s see now 😉
