I finished the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge (2015)!

Hi guys,

at the beginning of this year Popsugar released a reading challenge list in which the goal was to fullfill every task. So see what I’m talking about, here is the list I printed out and finished recently this November.

To finish it, I combined tasks with books because to be honest, reading one book per task is nearly impossible (from my perspective). This post is basically going to be a list of books, in which I’m listing which task I combined with which book. The goal of this is to get new books discovered, inspirations,…whatever. You will see soon that I combined a lot. Here you go!

So this has been the Popsugar Reading Challenge for me. At the end of this year there will be a total list of books I have read since I haven’t just read these books. Maybe you’ve found some inspirations on what to read next. 🙂

Have a nice day!

    1. I guess it’s a thing between me and to-do lists, which the reading challenge kinda is. I’m the same with Book-Tube-A-Thon, it’s really insane. So it’s okay to not manage everything, it’s not a competition.
