I came across Book & Bloom’s sign up post for The House Cup Reading Challenge and decided to join in. The House Cup Reading Challenge is hosted by Lauren at Live, Love, Read (Gryffindor) , Kelsey at Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf (Hufflepuff), Alex at Booksy Daisy (Ravenclaw), Erica at Escape Under The Cover (Slytherin).
The challenge begins on October 15 – November 12 and there are opportunities to win prizes.
My Tentative TBR for The House Cup Reading Challenge
Not everyone likes to be confined to a specific category, so we’ve decided that all books for the main challenge are reader’s choice. This means you can pick any book off your TBR list to count toward the main challenge!
First Year: On A Tuesday by Whitney G
Second Year: Dear Delilah by T. Bester
Third Year: Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines
Fourth Year: Under the Lights by Abbi Glines
Fifth Year: After The Game by Abbi Glines
Sixth Year: Got Mine by Nicole Loufas
Seventh Year: I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L. Sánchez
For those who like categories to help narrow down their reading choices, here are thirteen bonus challenges to choose from. However, books you read for the bonus challenges cannot count toward the main challenge! For example, if you pick The Hunger Games for the Slytherin bonus challenge (read a dystopian book), you cannot also count it toward your second-year challenge.
