The Popsugar 2018 Reading Challenge


Popsugar organises a reading challenge every year and this is the first time I’m taking part. There are 50 prompts, 40 main ones and 10 advanced.

You can find this sheet here, if you want to take part too.

I’m being pretty chill about this one, and I just want to see how many prompts I can tick off.
