Aaaaannnndddd the end of November marks the end of the N.E.W.T.s read-a-thon! Time to shake out the old eyeballs from all of that reading. Phew. What a ride! With the weather being so dreary and all of the holidays sprinkled in, it was hard to keep the motivation up to keep reading, but I made it!
I made it past my goal of just getting the minimum to pass (an O in 1 subject and an A in another) and managed to get books read in every subject I had available to me! Woohoo!
I will slowly be posting reviews of each of the books and updating the links below. I LOVED most of the books I chose to read, but some weren’t as good as I was hoping. But I supposed that’s what happens when you read so many books.
A: Book of at least 300 pages – The Girl in the Tower
E: Book that ends on an even numbered page – The Grownup
A: Read a book with magic in it – The Emperor’s Soul
E: A book with a cover that charmed you – Lips Touch: Three Times
O: A book that you think will leave a mark – Men Without Women
History of Magic
A: Book that you think would fit right in at the Hogwarts Library – The Poisoner’s Handbook
E: Read a book published at least 5 years ago – Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
O: A book that’s at least 400 pages long – 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
A: Read a book written by one of your favourite authors – South of the Border, West of the Sun
I also need to make a huge shout-out to the other wonderful, amazing, super productive and supportive ladies who participated in this read-a-thon with me, who excelled this month (and every month!): Sophie and Steph. Check them out, they are seriously fantastic. I cannot thank you girls enough for doing this with me!
Overall N.E.W.T.s Stats:
Books read: 9
Pages read: 2322
History of Magic: O
Muggle Studies: A
Here’s to December!
