One of my favorite parts of a new year is setting goals and choosing challenges to try to complete. For 2018, besides the usual Goodreads reading challenge, I’ll also be joining the PopSugar Reading Challenge of 2018. This is my first time participating, and I had never even come across it until a few weeks ago so I’m very excited!! <3

I chose to only do the regular 40-book challenge, not the advanced. If I end up finishing the challenge early enough, I’ll go for the extra prompts as well. You can check out all the prompts here.
