I can’t believe August is over and with that so is the N.E.W.T.s readathon! It’s a month long Harry Potter themed readathon where each for each book you read, will go towards your N.E.W.T exams. This is a continuation of the O.W.L.s readathon which happened in April.
The readathon was hosted on BookTube by G from Book Roast. It was month long Harry Potter themed readathon where each for each book you read, you pass one of your O.W.L exams.
Unlike with the O.W.L.s were you are only required to complete one book per subject, in the N.E.W.Ts you may be required to read multiple books per subject to prove your skill. Each subject in the N.E.W.Ts will contain three prompts, each for a specified grade. The grades are Acceptable (A), Exceeded Expectations (E) and Outstanding (O).
Your chosen Wizdarding Career determines which grades and which classes you need.
To recap, the career I chose was Magizoologist.
A magizoologist is a person who dedicates their life to studying, investigating and protecting magical creatures. The majority of wizards decide to focus on a specific favourite species after a couple of decades of studying the broader spectrum of fantastic beasts.
So to become a Magizoologist, the N.E.W.T.s grades I needed were; O in Care of Magical Creatures, E in Charms and E Herbology.
So I finished N.E.W.T.s for 6 different classes and got the grades I need to become a Magizoologist! I am pretty proud of myself, not going to lie.
The N.E.W.T.s grades I completed are:
A- Book that ends on a even page number: Groupie by C.M. Stunich
E- Read a standalone: Say Yes by Elle Kennedy
Care of Magical Creatures
A – A book that starts with the letter A, for Aragog!: Aru Shah and the End of Time (Pandava Quartet #1) by Roshani Chokshi
E – Book under 300 pages: Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) by Patricia Briggs
O – Read a book with a bird on the cover: The Raven’s Tale by Cat Winters
A- Read a book that you think has a gorgeous cover: The Beauty and the Wolf by Wray Delaney
E- Read a book under 150 pages: Becoming the Dark Prince by Kerri Maniscalco
A – Read a book with a green cover: For the Winner (Gold Apple Trilogy #2) by Emily Hauser
E – Read a book between 350 – 390 pages: Pucked by Helena Hunting
