Hello everyone! Today's post is going to be a TBR. I am not sure if I ever posted a TBR post on my blog before but the N.E.W.T.S. readathon is taking place in August and I wanted to share the books that I am reading for it. This readathon was created by the channel Book Roast. Click here to see the announcement video with all the information about the readathon. I am very excited to participate in it even though I am going to be very busy this August.
The career I chose is Magizoologist and I did complete all the O.W.L.S. that I needed to complete to continue on with the N.E.W.T.S. Here are the books I am planning to read and the challenges they complete.
Care of Magical Creatures:
A: Follow the Spiders! Why couldn't be follow the butterflies? A book title that starts with A, for Aragog.
The book I chose for this challenge is Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody. I do not know much about it other than that the book has Las Vegas vibes. I heard great things about it and I have also been wanting to pick it up for awhile and it seemed like the perfect book to read for this challenge. I have read her debut novel Daughter of the Burning city and really enjoyed it so I am very excited to finally read this book.
E: Read a book under 300 pages
For this challenge I am going with Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seannan McGuire, the second book in the Wayward Children series. I read the first book, Every Heart a Doorway, for the O.W.L.S so I thought that this readathon would be the perfect time for me to read the sequel which I actually heart it is more of a prequel. People say this book is even better than the first one and I am excited to finally continue on with this series.
O: Grab onto Fawke's tail! Read a book with a bird on the cover.
This challenge took me awhile to decide what book I wanted to read. At the end I chose Spin the Dawn by Liz Lim. I heard such good things about it and people seem to really be enjoying it. I do not know much about it and I do not want to know much about it before going into it as I find that I tend to enjoy books more knowing little about what it is about.
A: Read a book you think has a gorgeous cover.
The book I am using to complete this challenge is Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I have been wanting to continue on with this series and in order to do so I need to reread the first book as I do not remember much that happened in it. I personally love the cover of Caraval and am excited to finally give it a reread.
E: Read a comic / graphic novel / manga (or a book less than 150 pages)
For this challenge I decided to go with a graphic novel which is The Prince and the Dress Maker by Jen Wang. I rarely read graphic novels but I have read a few and really enjoyed them. I heard nothing but positive this about this book and I hope I am one of those people who also love it. Definitely excited to be able to cross this book off my TBR list soon.
A: Mandrake! Quick, put your headphones on! Listen to an audiobook (if not- green cover)
I do not like listening to audiobooks so I am choosing to read a book with a green cover and for this challenge I am going with Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas, another reread. I have been rereading the Throne of Glass books I have already read so I can finally finish reading the series. This series is one of my all time favorites so I am excited to read this for the second time!
E: Read a book between 350 - 390 pages
This challenge took so long for me to find a book because every book I picked up had either over 390 pages or under 350. The book I chose for this challenge when I finally found a book was Vicious by V.E. Schwab. This book is a book I have been wanting to read ever since I first heard about it and it is also one of the top 10 book I want to read this year and if you did not know, I am doing very terribly at that challenge at the moment.
That is my N.E.W.T.S. TBR. Let me know if you are also participating and what you plan on reading if you are participating. Thank you for reading and I hope to see you in my next post.
