In the year 2018, the year they turned 40, four friends set up a reading challenge – #40yrs40bks. In 2019 it was #40morebks and now in 2020 it’s #40for2020. As always we are inviting you to join us.
Here are the prompts:
and a spreadsheet for you:
I still have a few books to go on my 2019 challenge so I’ll do a round up of that when it’s completed. One thing I’ve confirmed this year is that I am very much a mood reader so this time I’m not going to plan out what books I’m going to read and stick rigidly to that but go with the flow.
As ever this is your challenge so interpret the prompts as you like… and Happy New Reading Year 2020.

Last month I took part in the catch up of the #OWLsReadathon and I passed 8 out of 12 subjects which means I’m eligible to sit NEWTs for 8 areas (although I started a ninth before the end July so when I finish that I’ve decided that category is free too…and also as long as I read the OWLs book first I can open up that NEWTS catetgory as well 😂). I did read more than 8 books in July but I’m such a mood reader and because of YALC I ran out of time.
Book Roast has set up another fantastic challenge and to achieve Outstanding grades in each of have to read 36 books 😭. I’m going to set a TBR for each prompt below and prioritise Muggle Studies, Astronomy and Transfiguration (for Outstanding grades) but hope to complete the rest over the course of the year.
This should be a yearly challenge so I’m looking forward to coming back to the Hogwarts Library each year.
Check out my TBR below:
