January Romanceopoly Wrap Up

Hello,

January is over and with it is the end of my first month of Romanceopoly! I completed 5 challenges, 1 more than my TBR. I’m on track to be able to fulfil all the Moon challenges.

Like the name suggests, Romanceopoly,  is romanced themed Monopoly game which is designed to get you to explore a range of different sub genres. Each neighbourhood has been replaced by a genre and each street has a unique challenge within that genre. Although, some neighbourhoods are a little more diverse and offer a melting pot of different genres to delve into.

The challenge is hosted by the ladies over at PeaceLoveBooksxo and Under the Covers Book Blog. For all the information about the challenge and reccomenedations can be found at the Romanceopoly website.

On to the books and prompts I completed!

You’re paying for it Mr Watson – paying because you happen to be too much interested in beauty. I was too much interested in truth; I paid too.’”
