NEWTs Readathon 2019| August TBR

NEWTS 2019.jpg

I am so excited that it is finally August and the Magical Readathons continue once again! This is my second year doing these readathons and I have to say Book Roast does an amazing job. Earlier this year I participated in the Owls, you can find those posts here: Wrap Up | #OWLsReadathon2019 , Middle Mark | #OWLsReadathon2019 Update and April TBR | OWLs Magical Readathon 2019. This year I decided to go for Herbology since I have been loving gardening and flowers this year on top of the fact that I am a proud Hufflepuff. I plan on continuing this journey to becoming a herbologist with these exams. Without more ramblings, here are my exams and the books I am planning on reading. Divider 2



  • A: Audiobook: Emma by Jane Austen 
  • E: Between 350-390 pages: Bringing Down the Colonial by Patricia Miller
  • O: Flowers on the Cover: Everything Under by Daisy Johnson 


  • A: Friends Fav: Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman *cough* Jenna, Reg *cough*
  • E: Yellow on the Cover, Yay Hufflepuff!: Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon 

Care of Magical Creatures

  • A: Book that stars with A: The Alienist by Caleb Carr



  • A: Ends in an even number: Endless Night by Agatha Christie

Just like last year, my most up to date NEWTs News will be over on twitter, but I will be updating half way through the month of August via my Middle Mark post. The readathon will be using the hashtag I know that the readathons official tag is #NEWTsReadathon2019 and the readathon also has a twitter of their own, you can find that here: is @MagicalReadthn.

Best of luck on your exams everyone!

  1. Best of luck with the readathon! I’m so excited the N.E.W.Ts have returned. 😀 I’ve given myself a few options, but I’ll mainly be aiming for History of Magic, DADA, Astronomy and Potions – I’m hoping I can achieve an O in all of them!

    One of these days I need to give something by Neal Shusterman a try. 🙂

    1. Thank-you Jess and best fo luck to you as well! I can say I did not expect to like his work as much as I did, which usually happens the other way around so I was quite happy.


  2. I’m doing the NEWTs too! I decided on Librarian for the OWLs in April so I’m sticking with that, which means I have 7 books I need to read I think 🤔. Good luck!


  3. Good luck with your exams!! I’ve pushed my NEWTs to October so that I can do ARC August (I really need to catch up on these first!!), but I hope you get to complete the marks for your profession!! 💕
