I know, I know. I said I would go with the flow and see what I’d read this month during OWNtober, but when I came across this challenge.. I simply couldn’t unsee it! And that’s immediately why I’m posting two times today – so don’t forget to check out my earlier post: Remember November!
Lauren @ Live, Love, Read, Alex @ Book Daisy Reviews, Kelsey @ Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf and Erica @ Escape Under the Cover are hosting The House Cup Reading Challenge! A challenge for Harry Potter-fans, people!
WHAT IS THE HOUSE CUP READING CHALLENGE?
The House Cup Reading Challenge runs from Sunday, October 15, to Sunday, November 12. During this challenge, you will progress from a first-year to seventh-year Hogwarts student by completing seven books on your TBR-list. In addition to the main challenge, you will have opportunities to earn even more points by participating in the themed bonus challenges and tweeting with the challenge hashtag on Twitter. But more on that later!
HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS
One winner will be chosen from each of the four Hogwarts houses. The person who earns the most points for their house will receive:
$5 Starbucks gift card and some HP-themed goodies (stickers, bookmarks, etc.)
Here’s where the House Cup challenge really comes into play! At the end of the challenge, we will randomly select one grand prize winner from the Hogwarts houses with the most points overall. This lucky winner will receive:
A Harry Potter Funko Pop figure and a $25 giftcard to Barnes and Noble
