IT’S DONE! The N.E.W.T.S. Readathon 2019 is OVER

I don’t know whether to be crying or thanking the heavens or upset or just grateful it’s over. XD

Although I really wish I could have finished my ridiculously long TBR schedule — no matter how impractical it was from the get-go — I’m super proud of myself for actually getting REALLY, REALLY close to finishing it! (I was le shock when I started crossing off titles from my list.)

I WAS ONLY 2 BOOKS AWAY FROM COMPLETING MY N.E.W.T.S.!!!!

Ughh…

At any rate… I did a pretty good job considering! And I only had to rearrange maybe two books? Although I did have to do a LOT of replacing of some titles to fit different prompts xD Whoops

FINAL RESULTS

READ/COMPLETED

STARTED READING/DID NOT COMPLETE

I was really thrown off by the MC’s name “Malik” (It’s the name of one of my own characters so I just couldn’t get past that while reading the book :/) This one had promise, too! And had I a few more days, I might have been able to power through it regardless of my own quirk regarding the name. Oh well…

DID NOT START (AT ALL)

Just couldn’t seem to get into or even WANT to pick it up. This was a impulse grab from my local library because the synopsis sounded good, but since I’ve never read the first book, I guess I was just at a loss to even WANT to pick it up again once I got it home since I figured it’d just be too much work and waste too much time trying to figure out what the hell’s happening in it. :/ On a side note, I might pick this title up again later once I get my hands on the first book.

SCRAPPED or REPLACED

FINAL REVEAL: CAREER

Based on this, my career path has been chosen…

I’m a Author-Librarian Astronomer with interests in Magizoology striving to one day apply for and be accepted to a position in the Department of Mysteries.

Ambitious little wizard, aren’t I? xD

Guess that’s why I’m both Ravenclaw AND Slytherin. My thirst for knowledge, creativity, and individuality can only be matched by my drive to accomplish my goals in (almost) whatever means necessary.

DISCUSSION

How did everyone else fair? What illustrious careers did you strive for? Did you reach your goals? Did you fall short like me (ughhhhhh) but still feel satisfied with the end result? Or did you come nowhere close and want to try again next year when the O.W.L.S. come around?

Leave a comment and let’s chat about our many triumphs and woes as August comes to a close and September begins!
