2021 AtoZ Reading Challenge Hopefuls

December 18, 2020
The Royal We 2021 AtoZ TBR

After an uber long break, we’re back book lovers! And we’re so excited to get started with 2021’s AtoZ Reading Challenge! It’s going to be full of fun and an amazing year of reading.

>>If you haven’t already joined our Facebook Bookstacked Readers group, be sure to do this before the challenge starts!<<

As with October (was that seriously the last time I made a TBR??), I’ve chosen to do an AtoZ Challenge Hopefuls list. Because we both know that Moody Reader Syndrome will set in around the end of January and I will suddenly be bored with all the books that I couldn’t wait to start reading in December. And I’ll throw the entire list out the window and start all over again. (Reader beware: I’ve already edited this list a couple times since its initial creation #readerproblems).


Megan’s 2021 AtoZ Reading Challenge Hopefuls

Daughter of the Pirate King

A – All Laced Up by Erin Fletcher | Goodreads
B – Beach Read by Emily Henry | Goodreads
C – Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff by Chip Gaines | Goodreads
D – Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction by Candace Cameron Bure | Goodreads

Here is where I deviated just a teensy bit from my TBR Hopefuls … while I absolutely can’t wait to read Candace Cameron Bure’s book, I also really, really, REALLY want to read Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I plan to read both in 2021 but haven’t yet decided which will be the official AtoZ entry.

E – Emmie & the Tudor Queen by Natalie Murray | Goodreads
F – Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes | Goodreads
G – Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett | Goodreads
H – Hades’ Daughter by Charlotte Carol | Goodreads

    I agree with DJ, you have excellent graphics. Happy to be doing the A to Z Reading Challenge again this year. I didn’t plan out a tbr list for it as know I won’t keep to it even if I do. I’ve definitely been becoming more of a mood reader lately too.
