PopSugar Reading Challenge 2018: February Wrap-Up

Yet again, Popsugar Challenge, you have been put on the BACK-BURNER. I only conquered two reads again this past month. So, this post will be short, sweet, and to-the-point. I think I made the mistake at committing to too much from the beginning, without really thinking […]

PopSugar Reading Challenge 2018

PopSugar Reading Challenge 2018

It's time for yet another reading challenge!

Along with the #BeattheBacklist challenge, I’ve decided to take part in PopSugar’s 2018 Reading Challenge! This fun challenge has forty reading prompts for books ranging across all genres. It challenges the reader to step outside of their comfort zone a bit, and discover new genres that they wouldn’t normally read (True Crime, and Nordic Noir for me). 

Below I’ve added the list of forty prompts if you are interested in checking it out for yourself! 

If you are really ambitious, there is the option to read fifty books total. Just add include the “Advanced” section while deciding your reads! I figured I’d start out with the forty and then add the remaining ten if I’m able to keep up with everything 😀

You can see more details regarding this reading challenge on PopSugar’s website by clicking here!
