Final Update: 2020 TBR Reading Challenge

Hey everyone!

For today’s post, I will be sharing my 4th and final update/results post for the 2020 TBR Reading Challenge, which was created by the lovely Mina @ Stacked.

Here’s a quick recap for anyone who doesn’t know about the challenge…

The Rules:

  • Pick a novel for each of the 22 TBR prompts. If that’s too much for you, it’s OK to go for less. However…
  • Those who finish all 22 prompts and post their reviews on their blogs/vlogs have a chance to win a book of their choice as a reward! (International, as long as Book Depository ships to your country)
  • You can’t start reading those books before January 1st!
  • Follow the creators Twitter account as she will create a blog hopping sheet (when the challenge begins) where you can leave your links. Also, to make it easier for her to keep up, please use #2020TBRReadingChallenge tag.
  • Thank the person that tagged you
  • Tag the original challenge page (this one)
  • Tag at least 5 people
