The (Unofficial) Magnus Archives

 The (Unofficial) Magnus Archives Reading Challenge

   #TMARC21 and #tmaReadingChallenge2021.

The Rules:

  • there are no rules! 
  • adhere to these prompts as rigidly or as loosely as you’d like.
  • If you find a book that you think would fit a Fear or a character, but it’s not their assigned prompt, go ahead and fill that one in, anyway. 
  • If you want to use one book for more than one prompt, go ahead.
  • If you want to just pick and choose your favorite Fears and characters and read books from their prompts, go ahead.
  • If you’re bringing over books you started in 2020 but didn’t finish, and want to include them in the challenge, even though you only read the last three pages in 2021, go ahead.
  • I’m just really honored if you try doing this in the first place.
  • the current tags I’m using for this challenge is #TMARC21 and #tmaReadingChallenge2021. If you’re planning on joining in on these shenanigans, I’d love to see it! You’re welcome to post TBRs, bookstacks, Excel spreadsheets, whatever.

  • 30 prompts that riff on the Fears (2 prompts per Entity), and
