Alright guys, I've seen these all over goodreads and I though we should try it! :)

So, I'll list different book challenges that you can read this month. You can attempt as much of these as you can!! Don't feel like you need to do them all.


Books read: /9
Pages read:


1. Read a book with gods/goddesses or mythical creatures.
2. Read a book with a rose or a moon on the cover.
3. Read a book with a title beginning with the letter F.
4. Read a book with 5 in the title or is the 5th in a series.
5. Pick a book from a series that you started during this challenge.
6. Read a trilogy.
7. Read a book with 400+ pages.


You may comment your books right now but no reading until 1ST MAY ! Challenge ends on the 30TH MAY ! Yes I know this is not the end of the month but it will give everyone time to choose books for June. Have fun! :)
