2016 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge

After unsuccessfully attempting the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge of 2015, this year I decided to take a serious stab at the 2016 challenge. I have to say that reading books  and discovering they’ve met a challenge goal is pretty fun, as well as reading books to fit the challenge that I wouldn’t have picked up any time soon. I know a lot of people don’t enjoy reading challenges because of the pressure, but I honestly don’t take it too seriously. I mean, I won’t be crushed if I don’t complete the challenge, but I’m having fun with it anyway!

Here is a list of all the requirements and the books I’ve read to meet them. If you want to read more about the challenge and Pop Sugar you can visit the website here.
