N. E. W. T.s Magical Readathon TBR

It’s N. E. W. T.s time people!! If you don’t know what this is, it is a continuation from the O. W. L.s that happened in April. Both are based on the wizarding tests taken at Hogwarts (O. W. L.s in 5th year, N. E. W. T.s in 7th year). These are taken to determine your wizarding career. The amazing creator of the magical readathon is G at Book Roast. Here is where you can find the information for this round which starts in August.

During the O. W. L.s, I chose the career of Potioneer (because to know me is to know I love Snape). So that meant I had to complete the prompts (or exams) for Arithmancy, Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Herbology, and Potions. However, I decided to go for all 12 classes and completed all but Astronomy. Therefore, for N. E. W. T.s, I can read for all subjects except Astronomy since I didn’t pass it. If this is confusing, G explains it way better lol I’ll just get right into the books I’m planning on reading (all 33 since I’m aiming to complete all that I can)

Priority TBR for Potioneer

First exam I need is Potions and I need an Outstanding, meaning I need to read three books. The prompts are:
