The 2020 Golden Trio Reading Challenge

I can’t sleep! So. Have a reading challenge!

Have you heard of the Golden Trio Reading Challenge?

I attempted this year, being the current year of 2019, but wasn’t quite successful. Read all about it below!

Here’s the specs, as put out by Flourish and Blott’s.

You’ll notice this challenge is from 2019. I’m still going to participate in it this year. Also, this year, I’m reading nothing but books written by women! Because why not?

Now, that isn’t all that I’ll be reading.

I’m reading a total of 111 books in 2020, which is about half the goal that I set for myself in 2019. So, hopefully, it is a little more achievable. You can read all about my 2020 Women Writers Reading Challenge here.

Flourish and Blotts has a different challenge for 2020: the Wizarding World Tour Reading Challenge. I’m going to try to complete at least two of the locations:

I’m not quite sure which school I’m going to focus on, but I’m leaning towards Uagadou:

  • Read a book over 450 pages
  • Read a book with a moon on the cover
  • Read a self-help book
  • Read a book that includes an animal
  • Read a book where a character follows a dream
  • Read a book with a symbol on the cover
  • Read a book with a hand on the cover

What are you reading or planning to read in 2020? Tell me all about it!
