2024 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge | TBR

Updated: Feb 19

Last year I skipped out on this challenge, but this year I am back at it in the hopes it will help me read more this year. I think I should be able to manage to read 50 books this year, though some of the prompts are a bit tricky. As it is with reading challenges, sometimes the prompts don't line up with your reading tastes. Maybe this will expand my horizons a bit or just be a waste of time, but I will do my best to get through all of these.

As this is a year-long reading challenge, I will be updating it throughout the year as I read and complete prompts. If a book is complete, I will mark it green. I will also add the book cover to the sheet below since I think it would look nice. Now, onto the prompts!
