2018 Reading Challenge

So, today as I was meandering through a close friend’s blog, Life, Books, and Chocolate Cake.  I stumbled across her post about the 2018 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge.  How have I never heard of this?  A reading challenge?  For real?  Can someone say New Year’s Resolution!  I love a good book.  Give me a warm cup of coffee, some chocolate, and a fuzzy blanket and you won’t hear from me for hours days!  So, what better way to kick of 2018 than with a good ‘ole book list.  Now, typically I stick to my favorites Nicholas Sparks, James Patterson, Lisa Scottoline, Jodi Picoult, and my new favorite debut author Larissa Weatherall, but hey change is good, right? Well, here’s to 2018 and POPSUGAR–Challenge Accepted!

If you want to join me on this challenge, head on over to POPSUGAR to get your printable reading challenge book list and join the Goodreads Ultimate Popsugar Reading Challenge group.  And, if you’re on Instagram they’ve even got their own hashtag! #popsugarreadingchallenge  So what are you waiting for?  Join me in 2018 and let’s compare book notes!  I’ll be adding book titles and links as I check each  list off of the challenge and I’d love to hear from you!
