Back in April we were challenged by the wonderful Book Roast to finally sit our O.W.L’s exams. We were given 12 prompts to line up with the classes and now after our O.W.L.’s are done, we are now getting ready to sit our Nastly Exhausting Wizarding Tests (aka N.E.W.T.’s) and of course, there are more challenges then before! (O.W.L.’s and N.E.W.T’s videos are here and here)
For the N.E.W.T’s we have 3 grades so to speak for each category. Acceptable, Exceeds Expectations and Outstanding. You have to complete each level before you can move on to the next one. And because I did Herminoe levels during April, I have seven categories that I want to get my O in.
Potions, Arithmacy, Charms, Muggle Studies, History of Magic, Transfiguration and Care of Magical creatures. Granted that means that I have 21 books to read this next month, and since I have been changing my TBR about 3 different times in the past 24 hours, I seriously doubt the TBR I chose, will actually be the TBR I end up with, but stranger things have happened.
One of the things that I am trying to do this round is pick out books that were all out of my own TBR, so that way I can get my TBR down and also buy some new books. (Yes, I realize that this makes not much sense at all, but shush, it will work I tell you.)
For Exceeds Expectations:
There are a few books in this list, are ones that I have read before, not many but a few at least. I love jumping into a story that I already know and love, because for some reason it helps me remember plot points of the new books that I read.
And For Outstanding:
My goal is to actually try and complete about 14 of these. I’m actually not sure how that will work, because I know I will have library books and probably new books coming that I’ll be excited about so who knows.
Anyways, that’s pretty much my TBR. I’m hoping to get a post up to talk about the past 3 readathons that I was involved in these past two weeks, but as we have so eloquently proven, I have absolute no power over when my posts come up.
Have a great day, and remember booknerds, life is too short to read mediocre books!
