Romanceoploy with Jennifer: June Update

Posted June 29, 2019 by Jennifer in Reading Challenge Tags: ,

Romanceopoly is a romance reading challenge based on the game board Monopoly. It’s hosted by Under the Covers Book Blog and Peace Love Books. I’m using the challenge to help me stay focused on my backlist TBR, but if a new release fits a square I’ll read them for the challenge. I prefer to stick to my older titles, but we all get distracted by the shiny new books.
