2023 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge

2023 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge 

It’s only the second year that I’m attempting this, and though I’ll frequently read more than the 50 books necessary for the challenge it’s sometimes tricky to find books to fit the individual prompts.

With a few weeks to go until January 2023, there’s plenty of time to think about which books on my ever-growing TBR pile can be used this year…

I am going to try, this year, to fulfil each prompt twice: once with an adult title, and once with a YA/childrens’ title.
