I can honestly not imagine making it to Astronomy. At least not completely. I will hopefully at least make Acceptable on all of my tests. However, I want to be ready just in case. I tried to create a list making all graphic novels. I failed miserably. I do not own any. I need to take a trip to the library to actually pick out paper versions of graphic novels. Although I do not even know what books I would pick up. Instead I turned to audiobooks.
A - Stars on the Cover - Technically The Science of Interstellar only has one star. However I still says that it counts. This is an audiobook that I own and have not read yet.
E - Book that has the word sky in the title - I do not own any audiobooks with sky in the title. So, I did a search through my Kindle books. I have actually read this book. However, I did not review it. I am working on reviewing all the Star Trek books.
O - Story that's set on a different planet/world - I am pushing things by selecting Red Mars. The audiobook is 23 hours long. Yet I have been meaning to read it for a while, and it meets the criteria. I might as well select it.
I have two more lists to create. I should hopefully have them up this week. How are you all doing?
I am half way through my TBR lists for the N.E.W.T.s. I better get finished since they are starting next week. Plan on me posting Astronomy, History of Magic, and Muggle Studies later this week. To watch the original Read-a-thon video by BookRoast click here.
If you want a way to keep track of your own TBR list for the challenge Creating & Co has created a free planner sticker for you to use. Check it out here.
My book selections for Care of Magical Creatures is all books that I own. I really have no idea what any of these books are about. I just went through my library and found books that met the categories. This is a great way to finish some of the piles of books that I already own.
A - An Animal on the Cover: I will be reading The Nothing Girl. Only the audible version has an animal on the cover. However, since this is the version that I own it is the reason I selected it.
B - Book under 160 pages: I actually have hope for finishing this third challenge just because the books are shorter. I selected The Leopard Tree. This is a Kindle book I have owned since last year. Again, I have no idea what it is about.
C - Includes Dragons in Any Way: To complete this challenge I went through my books one by one and looked for a cover with dragons or any reference to dragons. This book was the first one that fit. It is actually FREE on Kindle if you want to read it along with me.
Have you finished your TBR lists? If so post them in the comments below.
I suppose I should start out by saying that I could not entirely remember what the A, E, and O stand for. I am fairly certain that they stand for Acceptable, Exceeds Expectations, and Outstanding. Although, that may just have something to do with my kids and their finals. I will update when the written exam rules comes out.
However, I am excited that I have decided that the first test that I will sit for is Transfigurations. Overall there are six texts that I can sit for. I am going to create TBR lists for each. . . But I have a hard time imagining being able to get through eighteen books in one month. I did do 30 once, so I suppose it is possible.
A Scanner Darkley is a science fiction book by Philip K Dick. I own it in audiobook. I wanted to read more by Philip K Dick, although I am not sure what I will think about this story.
I am currently on hold at the library for the audio version of Children of Blood and Bones by Tomi Adeyemi. According to their algorithm I should be receiving this book shortly before the challenge. This book is everywhere and I cannot wait to read it.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Mass is a Kindle book that I picked up when it was on sale. I have heard a lot about the series and have been meaning to read it forever.
I think this is a great line up, and I do not anticipate any difficulty in receiving my Transfigurations N.E.W.T. The only question now is what will I transform into. . . .
