NEWTs 2019 Magical Readathon TBR from WRFB Crew!

Hey Boozers!

If you haven’t heard about the Magical Readathon, you are missing. out. We are so excited to participate.

The thought here is that you have to get a certain grade (A, E, or O) in the topics required for your Magical Career. We all did our OWLs back in April, so we can take our NEWTs now.


For my O.W.L.s I selected Librarian as my magical career path. Now just need those N.E.W.T.s—seven books in all!

Ancient Runes: I need an O

  • A: Recommended by a friend: All Systems Red by Martha Wells
  • E: Written in past tense: The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon
  • O: On my TBR for ages: Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

Defense Against the Dark Arts: I need an E

  • A: Black under dust jacket: Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente
  • E: First book remembered from TBR: The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young

History of Magic: I need an E

  • A: Fantasy: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
  • E: Includes a map: The Crown Conspiracy by Michael J. Sullivan


So, for my OWLs – I chose to be a Metal Charmer. I passed all of my OWLs (I know, it was crazytown.) Below I’ll tell you the subject and the grade I need to qualify for my career. There are 12 books here guys….
