August TBR Tackle Challenge Announcement

Hello Everyone!

August is almost here, which means it’s time for the August prompts for the TBR Tackle Challenge!

If you’re new to the TBR Tackle Challenge, it’s a reading challenge that I co-host with, theartsy_bookworm88, and hplreads. The goal of the challenge is to read the books that you already own and to “tackle your TBR.” Every month, we post five prompts to help you decide what books to read from your existing TBR. You can use the same book for multiple prompts, and you don’t have to pick books for all of the prompts if you don’t want to. The TBR Tackle Challenge started on Instagram, but we’re also on Twitter, Goodreads, and Storygraph.

If you have any questions about the TBR Tackle Challenge, please let me know!

Here are the prompts for August!

Starts with O or P

Once again, we’re carrying on with the alphabet this month and now we’re tackling “O” and “P”! Read a book that has a title that starts with either “O” or “P” for this prompt. It’s up to you how you treat titles that start with “The” or “A”.

Pink or Green on the Cover

August 3rd is national watermelon day! Celebrate this tasty treat by reading a book with some pink or green on the cover.

Animal on the Cover

August 8th is international cat day and August 26th is national dog day. To celebrate these furry friends, read a book with an animal on the cover.

Recommended by a Friend

Read a book that was recommended to you by a friend. If you can’t think of any titles recommended by a friend, read a book that bookish social media has added to your TBR.


Read a book that’s a retelling of another story.

If you have any questions about any of the prompts, let me know! Happy TBR Tackling!
