April 2020 Book Haul


Even with some release dates pushed back, I still managed to have a pretty large haul for April.  I had quite a few books pre-ordered and decided to place a couple indie store orders to help them out.

April 2020 TBR and Beyond Challenge


How is it April already?  TBR and Beyond has a mix and match challenge that starts today.  This is a fun one and has a coloring sheet!  You can join the challenge HERE.  You do need to be a TBR and Beyond member (facebook).



To play all you have to do is pick a card (up to two) and read a book with that prompt on it or do the activity on the card.

For the activities, you can still pair it with either a book or another activity. You must show us that you did the activity by placing a photo under the correct spot in the challenge. It will be clearly marked – just ask if you can’t find it.

The cards are up to YOUR interpretation. Example: Magic could be a character that uses magic or a magical land …. Just use your imagination!

Prize this month will be any book from Book Depository (up to $15 US).

Prize Entries –
Each book read is worth one entry.
Each activity is worth two entries.
Finish the game – 5 extra entries.

Extra Entry Chances:
Color your actual cards – Two extra entries
Read a TBR and Beyond group book – Love Boat, Taipei by Abagail Hing Wen, The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller or House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas – Three extra entries per book. If you read all books in April you will get a bonus and get 10 extra entries altogether.

– We maybe have one or two more ways to earn entries as time the month goes on, so keep an eye out for that.

Hopefully this is a fun, challenge and don’t worry if you can’t do it all. This is was just meant to be something to keep us distracted while we are all stuck inside!
