2017 Reading Challenge


THIS WILL BE THE YEAR! I plan to complete at least one reading challenge in 2017, and I've selected the 2017 Reading Challenge hosted by independent media and technology company for women, POPSUGAR.

Their challenge is made up of 40 book prompts that promise "to help diversify and expand your reading in the new year".  Since I tend to stay in the fantasy/sci-fi realm, so I'm excited to get started expanding my horizons with their guidance.  They also added an advanced section with 12 additional book prompts for “hardcore readers”— A.K.A. those who finish the initial 40 books early.

As my Goodreads goal for the year is already 50 books, I’m going for the full 52!

Feel like participating? Great! There's a Goodreads group that you can join to talk with like-minded folks, like myself, about your progress. And don't forget to create Goodreads shelf. Lastly, for those who'd rather track your progress on pen & paper, POPSUGAR also got you covered! You can download their printable and get all of the details from their original post.

 So let's begin...
