Challenge Accepted, PopSugar!

What better way to start off 2018 – and the blog – than accepting PopSugar’s Reading Challenge? It sure looks amazing this year! Granted, I’ve never been able to complete a reading challenge before but I’m confident I’ll do just fine this time – at least I will be confident until it’s October and I’ll still need to read 40 of the 50 books listed here. Oh well… it’s the intention that counts, right?

Anyway, I’ll list the challenge below and I’ll be updating it with the books I read and their review. I’m ready to crush this!
