2019 Challenge Overview: Golden Trio

For more information on the challenge

Another Harry Potter Challenge? Who do I think I am?

A major nerd that’s who.

This one is a year long, and actually not that difficult to do. Although, there are some specifics aspects to this that I absolutely dread. (Like I don’t know if I’ll complete this because of how much I dread specifics of these prompts). Anyway, onward to this list. Like the Fantasy and Sci-fi one, I’ll update this list as I fit books into that specific category or prompt.

I would say my goal is to get Hermione, but with the prompts I dread (Audio-book, hello my arch nemesis) I doubt I’ll be able to. We shall see. In other news watch as I add in a bunch of Harry Potter Books to this because I want to reread the series (And I have to reread the first anyway). Anything in italics is planned out already. Because why not add the ones in that I know I’m going to read? They will no longer be in italics once complete.
