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.

OWLs Readathon RESIT

Well, well, well, I think we’ve been here before, no? Yep, you guessed it by the title, I am giving the OWLs readathon another shot!

I really want to take part in the NEWTs readathon that is coming in August, so I am preparing myself by resitting my OWLs first. There are some guys doing the OWLs readathon for the first time in July, so I thought I would join them in the hope of finishing more of the subjects, because what you complete during your OWLs limits the subjects you can read during the NEWTs and I don’t want to be as limited as I am now!
