Popsugar Reading Challenge 2019

The Popsugar Reading Challenge for next year has been released. There are 40 regular and 10 advanced prompts to interpret as you wish and a fantastic Goodreads group to keep you motivated.

The list has been out for a week now so I've had time to consider the list. I'm not too happy with the book recommended by a celebrity, another posthumously published book, over a million ratings or LitRPG, but the others are all do-able without straying too far into books I don't want to read.

I've felt a little lost these past few weeks without my challenge reading to guide me, so I'm definitely doing this again next year. Do join the group for weekly check-ins, help with prompts and just general bookish friendliness.

Here's the list in full:

2. A book that makes you nostalgic
