Romance-opoly Reading Challenge 2020

ROMANCE-OPOLY — is Under the Covers and Peace Love books’s new reading challenge to replace their old one, the Romance Roundabout Reading Challenge. It’s based off of a Monopoly Board Game, but is supposed to help challengers to explore the romance genre more. I love it!! You can visit the website here for various methods of play, but for my first run through, I’m going chronological on the board. My second time around, I think I’ll roll the dice and go around that way.

There are two different “packs” to play with, the “Moon Pack” and the “Sun Pack,” both of which offer different challenges for people who go around the board twice (or more). I’m starting with the moon pack, and will hopefully be moving on from there.
