POPSUGAR Reading Challenge 2022

Happy New Year!

Last year I completed my goal of 30 books from the POPSUGAR reading challenge, and this year I’m going to attempt to actually do monthly updates instead of recapping twice a year ๐Ÿ˜…

Here’s this year’s challenge template:

I’m taking a few liberties on some of the prompts along with some friends who are doing the challenge too (like adding #bookstagram to the Booktok prompt, and spaceships to the plane/ship prompt!). Here are some of the books I’m planning to read:

  1. Ohhhh good choice, and good luck! I’ve tended to avoid the POPSugar challenge prompts in the past because most of my owned, unread books don’t fit it….but this year’s prompts actually might! I look forward to seeing how you like your chosen books.

    1. My strategy was definitely to add as many books as possible that I was already planning to read ๐Ÿ˜‚ I did find some cool new ones though, and that’s why I enjoy reading challenges!
