My House Cup Reading Challenge Sign-up Post & TBR


I haven’t been participating in as many challenges this year as I did in the past because I’ve got an abundance of work to do, but if it’s Harry Potter related then I’m sure as heck going to figure out a way to make my schedule work!

Hosted by Kelsey of Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf, Alex of Book Daisy Reviews, Lauren of Live, Love, Read, and Erica of Escape Under the Cover, this challenge has a lot of leeway as far as the challenges go.

The idea is to get from Year 1 to Year 7, reading one book per “year” and those books are all reader’s choice. Woo hoo! Then there are the additional challenges, one for each house and many more that are Hogwarts themed, based on classes or character types or creatures. I’m on #TeamRavenclaw (caw caw).

Now, what will I be reading? Um…who knows? Let’s be honest, I don’t have the greatest track record keeping up with TBRs because I’m a bit of a mood reader, but I’ll do my best. These are the seven books I’m hoping to read for the main #HouseCupReadingChallenge :

  1. Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Long
  2. Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp
  3. The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
  4. Kat and Meg Conquer the World by Anna Priemaza
  5. Merry and Bright by Debbie Macomber
  6. The Girl Who Never Read Noam Chomsky by Jana Casale
  7. We Were Eight Years in Power by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Reading for points is always an adventure. Can I do it? We’ll see! Each finished book above will net 20 points for my house and then I’ll see about reading more in the optional categories.

Have you read any of these? Which should I start with? Let me know in the comment section. 🙂

  1. Before I Let Go, The Hazel Wood, and We Were 8 Years in Power are all on my to-read list at Goodreads. I’m curious to see what you have to say! The Hazel Wood hits my wheelhouse most thoroughly; sounds like darker twists on fairy tale tropes, if I recall.
