N.E.W.Ts Readathon | Wrap

Hello there Witches and Wizards! It’s results day for those Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests that were sat in August, and I’m kind of whelmed at my success. The NEWTs Readathon was a really great thing to be a part of, I met nee internet friends and read quite a few of the books that have been sat on my TBR pile for a long time. I largely stuck to the TBR that I set out at the beginning of the readathon, and found that participating in The Full Monte and Bout of Books help me finish some of these titles. I really wanted to try and get Exceeds Expectations in everything, but as the month went by in a flurry of work activity and holiday planning, it became obvious that was an unrealistic goal, and I didn’t even quite manage to get an acceptable in everything (damn you Shadowblack for not being engaging!).

This post is somewhat regurgitating my August Wrap post, but I don’t really care because I wanted to see my progress during this readathon. I’m really hoping Gintare of The Book Roast hosts more Magical Readathons, or at least makes this an annual occurrence because it has been awesome!

How did you do during the NEWTs readathon?
