August Reading List

August Reading List

Oh my goodness, I pulled it off. I actually did it! I can’t believe I did. For those of you who are new or just following for the first time, I suppose, I did the NEWTs exams for August. My goal was Auror with two additional classes, because I can’t make my life easy.

Info on my choices

This was only pretty much horrible for me for three reasons. One: I had to read an audio book (but that was a lot of fun and that review is coming tomorrow). Two: One of the series isn’t completed (thank heavens tho, because I hated The Keepers). Three: I had to pick up a series I accidentally DNFed (which I ended up loving. The Wicked series reviews will come later next month). I really pushed myself this month, to do things outside of my comfort zone. Was I rewarded? I think so. I read a lot of great books this month. I was not able to read the +3 (three books that I added because I started one series but did not finish it). Oh well no harm no foul, right?

But you aren’t here to hear me ramble. Scores for my NEWTs!

July Reading List

July Reading List

Happy July everyone. We are half way through 2019, and I am at 72 books read this year alone. It’s a lot, wow. I actually have a lot of TBR and to reread books, mostly because I have a lot of first two or three novels in a series, but I never finished it. I think that, as a goal moving on through the rest of this year, I’m going to actively work towards finishing the book series I own (finally) and finishing those reviews. Or at least after August and not December. August is for NEWTs and December is for dragons after all.

NEWT Reading List (August TBR)

Here we are everyone! NEWTs List, and it has been a long time in the running, let me tell you. As a note about this extensive list, I think I may be adding a “I might read this too list” later on in the month depending on my reading speed for these. Also, I’m cheating. That’s right. I’m going to say it. I’m cheating for this bookathon. I’ll explain in a moment…
