The NEWTs magical readathon is happening again and I couldn’t be more excited! A month long readathon is just how I like to spend my Summer.
This readathon follows the OWLs readathon, which happened in April, and is hosted by The Book Roast. It comes with so many challenges and to complete them all, you would have to read 36 books in a month! I’m not aiming to do that, but it is pretty close.
Here are all of the challenges/subjects and what I plan to read for them.
