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.

IF YOU HAVE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE SQUARES I HAVE LEFT FEEL FREE TO LEAVE THEM IN THE COMMENTS. I have a few in mind on some of the squares and others I have no clue because I don’t read in some of the genres that much.
Stay tuned for more monthly recap posts to see how I’m doing with the reading challenge.
