2016 Reading Challenge: Challenge Accepted


Every Year PopSugar provides its readers with a Reading Challenge, last years I didn’t quite make it through the whole list but this year I am determined. I have a slight issue with reading books that are out of my interest, but this challenge helps you pick a diverse range of books. The best part is that they don’t choose the book for you, they give you the category and you can go ahead and pick the books you want to read.

To hold myself accountable for the list I have it pinned to my board at work. PopSugar has also created a hashtag so you can keep track on social media, #popsugarreadingchallange.

Since I am so book obsessed, I have already picked the books I want to read. I have had a long book wish list for a while and now is the time to check some of the books off that list. Check out my  list below (in some categories I have a few I want to read), and if you’ve read any let me know what you thought of them!
