Hi guys,

it’s almost time for a New Year and with that comes a new book reading challenge by Popsugar! Yay, or more like nay for me since this list of books I want to read was more than hard to create. But let’s see what I want/have to read this year.

So, this has been my list so far. It can change in the course of a year, no question, but at least I have a plan now.

Will you participate in this year’s Reading Challenge? Do you have your own challenge or do you think reading challenges are too stressfull and take away the fun of reading? I’d like to know!

Have a great day!

    1. If I plan, I plan it right! 😀 Well new year, new start – depends on if you want to take your time to read the challenges or not. Personally I see enough time for it next year, so I’ll try it 🙂
