N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon 2020 TBR


This year marks the third year of the N.E.W.T.s readathon which is hosted on BookTube by G from Book Roast. 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.

This will be the last of the N.E.W.T.s. Given the near constant derogatory comments J.K Rowling has made towards the trans community G has decided that she will no longer continue with the O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s. I commend G’s decision as the comments made were horrible and honestly not things I believe should be said. It’s 2020 you would think and hope that as a society we would’ve reach an overall point of acceptance for all minority groups and it pains me to see that this is not the case. 

At this stage it looks like G is planning for the magical readathon will be back in 2021 but with a new magical universe that she’s created. I have no doubt that it will be amazing. G is a seriously creative person—you just have to look at the career guides she created to know that—so I’m exciting to see what will happen.

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).

Middle Grade March TBR


I can’t believe it’s almost March already! This March round 3 of Middle Grade March is happening!

Middle Grade March is a readathon similar to Nonfiction November. The goal for this readathon is to celebrate Middle Grade books and to read more than you regularly would. There are 5 challenges but ultimately if you can read just one Middle Grade book in March you have succeeded!

This readthon is hosted by Krista of BookAndJams and Katie of Life Between Worlds over on BookTube.

I love Middle Grade fiction and I think this is the perfect way to get to some of the books sitting on my shelves
