Everyone knows! The time for N.E.W.T.’s is almost upon us! At least, for all of you. For me? Well. As the title of this post states, I’m doing it my way this time. Mainly because I really want to make an effort in getting my N.E.W.T.’s and I want an honest chance to do so. Knowing I’ll start working again in one and a half week [feel my pain and tears, people..].. Pretty much means I’ll be spent by the time August comes around. I’ll be damned if I let that stop me from getting at least some N.E.W.T.’s so I decided to do it for two months instead! I’m even contemplating doing it three months simply because I love reading according to prompts given? And I managed to find books for every single prompt pretty easily?
Since there are a whole lot of subjects with three prompts each, this means I’ll have plenty of reading options which is perfect! Like.. I’ve been mood-reading for months now so at least I can somewhat continue doing so, right? Anyway! Let’s take a look at my humongous TBR for July and August! A huge shout-out to Waterstones Brussels for being so, so kind as to give me some of their newer (but especially) older ARC’s that are found on this TBR.

Are you participating in August’s N.E.W.T.s?
What courses are you going to focus on? Have you set your TBR yet?
Which of the books on my TBR do you really want to see a review of?
