2016 Reading Challenge

Confession: I am not the best resolution keeper (or resolution maker, for that matter). My entire list of resolutions one year was this: floss. Annnnd I flossed for about a week. So this year I decided to skip the resolutions and, instead, accepted the 2016 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge.

My favorite thing about this specific challenge is that it doesn’t tell you what books to read; it just gives category suggestions. The challenge is more what you call “guidelines” than actual rules. (Pirate of the Caribbean, anyone?) Getting lost in a book is one of my favorite pastimes, and this challenge has already brought me scads of joy. Check it out:

Here’s what I’ve read so far this year:

Armada by Ernest Cline
– A science fiction novel

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness von Orczy
– A book you haven’t read since high school

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander (J.K. Rowling)
– A book that’s becoming a movie this year

Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol
– A graphic novel
– A book you can finish in a day

Called for Life by Kent and Amber Brantly
– A book recommended by a family member
