2019 Reading Challenge: The Golden Trio Reading Challenge

This is an interesting one for my fellow book-addled Potterheads.

I originally thought I was just going to use this as a cross-challenge, rather than an additional challenge. Instead, I am going to use it as a possible way to clear off a few books from the ‘To Be Read” shelf.

I’m not sure what level I will manage, though.

  • Ron: complete 12 prompts
  • Harry: complete 24 prompts
  • Hermione: complete 52 prompts

Now, I’ve told myself I only need to do twelve of them. But if I can, I’d like to hit all fifty-two possible. But, with all of these lists, I have 208 books to read on my 2019 Reading List. Hopefully, I’ll be able to knock all of them out!

As ever, progress will be posted on my Goodreads account. Individual reviews will be posted as well.

What are you reading? What prompt level would you do?
