2019 Golden Trio Reading Challenge

I was looking for a Harry Potter themed reading challenge and came across the Golden Trio Reading Challenge for 2019. Even though this challenge is for 2019, I am going to complete it in 2020. HPOOTP-Flourish and Blotts is a Harry Potter themed reading group located on Facebook. 

The Harry Potter books will be was read again in 2020 to count for seven of the prompts listed.

January 1, 2021: I am going to continue on this list from 2019. Eventually I might get something completed. I read the Harry Potter books twice in 2020, so those prompts are marked as complete.
