Mallorie (she’s my 8 year old) loves to read. I’ll probably mention her the most because she is the biggest book lover out of my kids. (I think I’m gonna try and make this a frequent thing. I am in awe of her love of reading and I like to talk about it) While I was looking through WordPress she saw the House Cup Challenge and immediately decided she wanted to try it.
We spent two hours going through and making her a tbr. Naturally she couldn’t use books she already had checked out we had to come up with all new books. If you don’t know what the House Cup Challenge is you can find out more information here. The challenge is over but she’s 8 and isn’t blogging about it (though I could see her starting one).

Yeah you read that last one right. Moby FREAKING Dick. And guess who gets to read it with her…. ME. I was content on just leaving it on my TBR forever but nope. She came up with the choices all on her own. We used goodreads for most of it and then she started hunting my shelves and picked some random books to read. I love that she’s going to do this and that since she’s not officially doing it or anything there’s no time restraints. I don’t want her to stress out over not finishing in time. I want her to enjoy it and have fun which is the point of the challenges to begin with.
Wish her (and me) luck!
