Popsugar Reading Challenge

As you'll know if you read the blog regularly, I am obsessed quite fond of Pinterest. A few days ago I stumbled across a pin of this excellent reading challenge created by Popsugar. The link has a lovely graphic for the challenge, but I'm retyping them all here so that I can cross them off throughout the year.

This year I will try to read:

A book with nonhuman characters
A funny book
A book by a female author {Gone Girl}
A mystery or thriller

  1. That's a lot of books for sure! Good luck :)

    1. I'm going to cheat a bit and let books double up, as I'll never get through it otherwise

  2. Oooh what an excellent idea! Best of luck to you, Heather. :)
