2020 Paranormal Reading Challenge Info and Sign Up


I took a year off from hosting but I'm bringing back the Paranormal Reading Challenge for 2020! This reading challenge includes all kinds of supernatural. This means you can read about vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, ghosts, witches, and much more!

However, this doesn't mean all fantasy is included. What makes a book paranormal is it is set in our own world.

As always this is a challenge where you choose your own reading goals. It's low pressure so read as much or as little as you would like!

The Rules: 
  • This challenge begins January 1, 2020 and ends Dec 31, 2020.
  • You may sign up anytime during the year.
  • I won't be creating different levels. Read as little or as many books as you want.
  • Books must be paranormal. This means the book has supernatural beings or elements but is set in our world. This includes vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, ghosts, witches, wizards, psychic powers, magic, fairies, mermaids, angels, gods, etc. 
  • You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks.
  • Books may be YA, adult, horror, romance, graphic novels, etc.
  • You may reread books.
  • Books may count towards other reading challenges.
  • Use the hashtag #2020ParanormalChallenge
  • If you could be so kind, please place the 2020 Paranormal Reading Challenge banner on your blog to help spread the word.
  • Please link back to this blog, post about it on Facebook, Tweet about it, and so on to help spread the word.

Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme and blog hop hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This week the topic is Holiday Reads. I'm going to list five books I love to read during the holidays and five books I want to read this year.


I read this book every year around New Years.



This is the hilarious memoir that the movie is based on.



It's the classic Christmas novel.



The movie is wonderful but there's a novelization too. 



It's not technically a holiday book but those Christmas scenes hit you in the feels.

Baby Yoda Memes


To You, Merry Christmas

I haven't posted on my blog in a long time. I'm having my worst year of reading, writing, blogging, and generally being productive at anything in life. So here are some Baby Yoda memes to make me feel like the empty space in my blog and my heart has been filled.

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles with Numbers In Them

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme and blog hop hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This week the topic is Book Titles with Numbers in Them.



This series alone would fulfill this weeks topic. I believe the series is on book number twenty-six now. But I won't cheat because what would be the fun in that?



Tolkien's second book in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is at number two. This is possibly the most famous fantasy series ever.



This book was written in 1844 and is possibly the most famous historical novel of all time.



It's my number four but the first book in this science fiction series. 



This is one of my favorite books. 



The first book in this popular YA fantasy series is what I chose for number six.



When people ask me what is the one nonfiction book I think everyone should read, my answer is always this book.



This is one of King's weirder novels. 



I consider Liane Moriarty to be one of the best contemporary writers.



No one has mastered the art of writing an unreliable narrator like Ruth Ware.

This was surprisingly really easy! I thought I would struggle to find a book for at least one of the numbers but I was able to find them within minutes. Granted I was using Goodreads. This week's topic made me realize just how much I appreciate the website Goodreads. #notsponsored
