2019 PopSugar Reading Challenge

2019 PopSugar Reading Challenge

Happy New Year everyone! 🎉

In 2018 I took part in the PopSugar Reading Challenge for the first time. It was a great experience and I have decided to participate again this year! As someone who is primarily a mood-reader, I’m not going to put pressure on myself to read all of these books. That said, I think this is a fun way of diversifying my reading.
