My 2019 PopSugar Reading Challenge

have resolutions and thoughts about this reading year. I’ve decided that I want to do to read 120 books this year (about 10 books a month), and I want to structure my reading by making some of my selections with the goal of completing the 2019 PopSugar Reading Challenge. Gayle, was so inspired by my attempt at the PopSugar Challenge that she created her own EDIWTB 2019 Reading Challenge. Neither of us is planning to do this with such zeal that it isn’t fun or is overlays stressful, but I think we both have a good of adding the satisfaction of some structure this reading year.

Half the fun of a reading challenge is figuring out the books that are options for each category, and making adjustments during the year. Here are my developing plans for half the books I plan to read this year.
