2021 Popsugar Reading Challenge

I barely read anything in 2020. 

I started reading a few books – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, A Handmaid’s Tale, Vox, A Darker Shade of Magic, Midnight Sun and probably more. But I didn’t finish any of them. 


Next year i’m taking part in the 2021 Popsugar Reading Challenge. My aim is to read the 40 books for the regular challenge at the very least. 

Here’s the list if anyone else wants to have a go as well. 

I also made a bullet journal spread for this, which I’ll share soon.
