Trope-ical Readathon TBR

I’m so excited for the Trope-ical Readathon this August! It’s my favourite one as the prompts are really varied and I can generally get books I already have to fit the prompts. I did the readathon in March and was a sprint host, but I’ve decided not to do that this time as I’m quite busy this summer.

I’ve chosen to be on Team Contemporary/Literary/Historical again this time and this is my rather ambitious TBR. The last two times I’ve done this readathon, I’ve just about managed all the prompts but I’m really not sure I will as my puppy seems to get up to mischief every time I look at my book! No doubt, as with every TBR, I will completely stray but hey ho!
