Many things happen at the beginning of a new year, and while I am not big on resolutions (I usually stick with the trusted – go into this year positive and follow the golden rule) I am always excited to set my Goodreads challenge and look for new ways to expand my reading. This year, after much debate and help, I have settled on the 2018 Popsugar Reading Challenge.
This challenge will allow me to broaden my reading horizons, while also utilizing my own shelves and the public library more. These are two important factors for my personal reading goals this year. While I am not sure if I will hit the mark with all 50 books, I do feel that I will succeed in diversifying my reading 😉
With that said, I came across some fantastic challenges while attempting to make my decision. I thought I would share 10 of my favorites here for anyone still looking to join in.
