N.E.W.T's Prompts: Here

    It's August and that means it's time to take the N.E.W.T.s

      What is the N.E.W.T's Read-A-Thon you ask? August is the second half of Book Roast's Harry Potter themed month long read-a-thon where you pick what future Wizarding career you want to have when you graduate. Each career has a series of challenges based on that classes you need to pass O.W.L's ( the first half) and now N.E.W.T's in.

        If you would like to check out some more details yourself here are some links you can look into. Just know, that you do not have to participate in the O.W.L challenge to take part in the N.E.W.Ts

My Wizarding Career of Choice: Librarian

Key Traits: Knowledgable, Brave, Adventurous, Resourceful

About being a Librarian if anyone wants a refresher


          Often confused with a muggle career of the same name, librarian’s job is extremely dangerous. Books are the single most important means of our education and the task of guarding, distributing and hunting of magical tomes is not to be taken lightly. This is a position for the adventurous of heart!

           Are you prepared to battle dark fores, enchantments and curses? If so, in return we offer unlimited access to any and all written material available to mankind.

           A three year hunting sabbatical is available if you wish to focus on the search of Lost Tomes. Unlimited access to librarian-only search notes dating back to the end of the Dark War will be made available to you after two years of service.

            All librarians are hired by the Ministry of Magic and work under the supervision of Department of Mysteries. You must be extremely fluent in Runes. Further details are unknown.

            The further studies are mandatory, however written and physical tests will be conducted.

     Just a small town girl living in a literary world. While books are an obvious obsession, I also adore baking, crafting and reenacting. One day I plan to run off to the woods, build a homestead and enjoy a simple Hobbit life.

    Until then, join me for a cuppa and a chocolate biscuit and happy reading!
