PopSugar Reading Challenge 2019

I barely finished the PopSugar Reading Challenge 2018. So I’m starting early for the PopSugar Challenge 2019. It gives prompts for 50 books to read. This year one prompt is read a book with pop, sugar, or challenge in the title. In 2018, the challenge pushed me to read new books outside my comfort zone and I’m finding the same this year. There’s a Goodreads Group that shares suggestions on books that fit the different prompts for ones that are harder to find.

When I’m not doing PopSugar Reading prompts, I mainly read horror, fantasy, mystery, and thrillers. I really enjoy non-fiction especially history related. And I read a splash of sci fi and romance or historical romance. This is my Year in Books 2018 on Goodreads.
