My PopSugar Reading Challenge 2019

This year, I have decided to take part in more reading challenges to try and expand my reading horizons. I did quite well in 2018, not just reading 90% young adult fantasy which is basically all I read before but I thought a reading challenge might give me a better structure. I had seen the PopSugar Reading Challenge before, but I’ve never participated so I’m looking forward to giving it a go.

I have a few ideas of what I’d like to read but I’d also appreciate any suggestions you have! I will update this list each time I read a book that fits the criteria & hopefully by the end of the year, I will have completed it! I have also signalled which books I have rated 5 stars on Goodreads. Any book recommendations are more than welcome in the comments!

Popsugar reading challenge 2019


Each month, I will update this list noting the books that I have read so far that fit the criteria! This may involve rearranging books into different categories!

By the end of January, I read 19/50 books that fit these prompts! Let’s hope I can find a few more obscure ones in February! Do you have any recommendations that might fit the prompts I still need?

What is on your To-Read List for 2019?
