Challenges - Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-Fi – A (2019) Reading Challenge


Every year I try to find a science fiction or fantasy related challenge. In the past, these types of genre challenges have always seemed to kind of fall apart as a result of bad administration by the hosts. This year, I am participating in the Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-Fi – A (2019) Reading Challenge hosted by A Dance With Books, and I am quite obviously hoping that this challenge is better run than its predecessors. The challenge consists of three sets of prompts, and completing each section earns the participant a "title". The prompts are as follows:
