The 2017 Popsugar Reading Challenge

As 2016 is rapidly coming to the end I thought I had better see if Popsugar is doing another reading challenge as I have done the two they have done so far. To my delight yes they are and they have included an advanced section which I’m not sure if I will achieve but will definitely try! 

It may sound hard work as I’m effectively being told what to read but I have come across books that I never would have tried before and enjoyed them. Because of them I have finally read Dickens and Agatha Christie.

Are any of you doing a reading challenge?
