I’m a few months late to the Reading Challenge thing but I can’t wait to participate now that I know. Luckily, I mark the date I read things in Goodreads so I can just back track through the past few months. I’m going to do the Popsugar Reading Challenge 2016 (image below) because that’s what my friend is doing and I like accountability. There’s also one via Book Riot called Read Harder and Bustle has one as well to encourage reading books by women and writers of color.
I have already completed a few of them or have some books that I’m reading right now that will qualify. I’m not counting kids books, which is a lot of what I read.
