The End of My Journey To Become a Healer, I Hope // N.E.W.T.S 2019

Back in April I finally got to participate in the O.W.L.S Read-a-thon as created and hosted by Book Roast over on youtube. This read-a-thon was focused on the Harry Potter exams where we would take them the same. As a continuation there is the N.E.W.T.S. read-a-thon. As you might guess this is of course based on those exams in Harry Potter.

Here is the announcement video. A lot of the explanations, FAQ, Career Guide and anything else you might need she has linked down below in the description box and will help you figure out how to go about this read-a-thon. You don’t need to have done the OWLS to be able to do this one if you weren’t able.

This read-a-thon focuses back on the careers we choose during the OWLS and in the guide there will be the subjects you need to take for that career. I completed all 12 owls so technically I could just pick any career if I wanted to at this point. However I am sticking with Healer at the moment.

Here the passing grades are important. Per subject there are 3 prompts and so 3 passing grades. For healer I need all my subjects to be Exceed Expectations so that means I need to do the A(cceptable) prompt and the E prompt. Which means I’ll need to read 10 books for Healer. If you need O(utstanding) then you will need to do all 3 prompts.

So here we go. Since August will probably be a month I won’t have so much me and reading time so I tried not to have too many long books. But I also need to get on some arcs so yeah. I am also not going to look outside of these prompts that I need for Healer because I don’t think I will have the time.

Grade Prompt Book


A Read a book that you think has a gorgeous cover The Bone Ships
E Read a comic/graphic novel/manga (or a book under 150 pages) The Barrow Will Send What It May

Defence Against the Dark Arts

A Book that is black under the dust jacket Beneath the Citadel
E Gilderoy’s memory charm: first book that you remembered just now from your TBR Sorcery of Thorns


A Mandrake! Quick, put your headphones on! Listen to an audiobook (if not, green on cover) The Gauntlet

E House ingredient: book with a cover in your Hogwarts house colour The Battle

Forbidden Section

X Group Book Spellslinger

This year the Forbidden Section is new. Spellslinger is the book that we can all read together and talk about nearing the end of the month of I recall right. You can use it to substitute any book if you can’t get to it so you can still get the passable grade for it, even if it doesn’t fit the prompt. I am just going to read a bit of Spellslinger each week I think, make a schedule, and if I need a substitution I can use it and if not I will have read an extra book.

  1. Sorcery of Thorns is on my N.E.W.T.s TBR as well 🙂
    Good luck with the Healer career. If you passed all your O.W.L.s I’m sure you will finish all the necessary classes with fantastic grades!

  2. Oops! Ik had de video niet bekeken en ben meteen de prompts gaan lezen. Hierdoor ging ik er vanuit dat je wanneer je een Outstanding nodig had die specifieke prompt moest lezen. Ik had het mezelf dus bijna een pak makkelijker gemaakt. Er stond al een blogpost klaar in de planning maar die moet ik dan toch nog even aanpassen zodat ik geen foutieve informatie deel. Op die manier gaat het me natuurlijk niet lukken om alle vakken te lezen.

      1. Bij mij is het er gelukkig slechts eentje. Dus eerst die zeven boeken lezen en dan hopen dat ik er nog enkele A-tjes kan bijlezen voor de andere vakken.


  3. I really like your journal for the NEWTS.
    Good luck on being a healer. I’m aiming for Aurologist. I only have 2 subjects to read for but I’ve decided to see how many NEWTS I can otherwise get.
