2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge



This will be my first year making a concerted effort to complete the 2020 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, which I've tried to do in years past & not bothered to finish.

In my monthly reading recaps, I'll be including which challenge prompt each book fulfills (if any), & you can follow my challenge progress on my designated 2020 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge page.

(P.S.: If you're doing the challenge, too, I'd love your recs for any of my incomplete prompts!)

Oh, yeah, & let's keep it touch: Tell me what you're reading, then add me on Goodreads & see what I've read in months past. You can also follow my bookstagram account and subscribe to Book of the Month Club, using my referral link for a discount.
