Whimsy and Mayhem Reading Challenge 2021: Spades

The following is the list of books I have read and have placed into their categories. Go here for the Challenge itself. Anything in bold is something I plan on reading this year and where I think that it will place.

Character Goal: Lewis Carroll
Requirements: All 52 Prompts
Additional Themes: Mastery, Reality, Mind, Element on cover (Air, Water, Fire, Earth)

Mode Goal: Red Mayhem

GOAL: COMPLETE!

Note that I am not using Manga or Webnovels yet for this challenge. If I need to use them as supplements later, I will. However, for now, I think I can just use my novel reads.
