August TBR – The N.E.W.T.S.

The Magical Readathon is a Harry Potter themed readathon created and hosted by Book Roast. Check her fun fun channel out!

Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to be sharing with you all my TBR for the N.E.W.T.S. I failed last year, but this year I WILL become a healer! I need to read a total of 10 books, but I am determined!

Before I get into this post, most of what I list are ARC’s of books that haven’t been published yet. I am very fortunate to have parents who support my decision to pursue an MLIS and am privileged to work at a library and be able to attend full librarian conferences which allow me to obtain these ARC’s.

Now to my TBR!

      1. Thanks! I checked out the synopsis for Meet Cute and it doesn’t seem to be my style of contemporary. I like my contemporaries with a bit of drama and more well-rounded characters. But thanks though! I’ll keep looking.

  2. I’m taking part this year as well, although thankfully I only have to read 7 books! We’re both doing Herbology and Charms, and the only extra one I have to do is Care of Magical Creatures. I also picked Mooncakes for my comic/graphic novel prompt 😀
