What an Animal Reading Challenge 2019

.This is the third challenge run by Yvonne at Socrates Book Reviews. The sign-up page is What an Animal Reading Challenge 2019 (sign up here).

The animal(s) in the book has to play a major role in the story. There can’t just be an animal on the cover. I’m going for Level 4, 21 or more based on what I read last year. For complete details, be sure to go to Socrates’ Book Reviews.


Level 1 – Read 6 books
