I Finished the 2018 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge

The end of October came around and I finally finished the 40 challenge prompts of the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge. I didn’t let the prompts influence my reading too much for most of the year, and it wasn’t until book 134 that I finally finished the last prompt but I can finally say I did it! Definitely the hardest prompts were nordic noir (I’m just picky and not super aware of the genre) and a book by a local author (I chose an alumni of my university who was in town for a book talk) but honestly this was kind of fun to do and I can’t wait for next year!
