Ultimate Reading Challenge

2015 Ultimate Reading Challenge


The Ultimate Reading Challenge is hosted by Popsugar. This looks like a very fun challenge! Lots of types of books to choose from on the list.

Popsugar is giving you lots to choose: “From a book your mom loves to a book with a love triangle, we’re giving you a wide range of reads, spanning eras and genres, instead of specific books. You don’t have to read all 50 books (technically 52, since one is a trilogy), but it’s a fun incentive to diversify your reading — you may be surprised by what you find you enjoy! Download their printable, and check off the books as you go.

I’m keeping a paper list of possible books that fit the possibilities!
