The 2021 Challenge

new Reading Challenged dropped on December 1st. I’ve been planning like  mad. Since I started last year in December, I
thought it’d be fine to start early this year too. That way I can post on
January 1st with a new book. Problem is, I’m already reconsidering my choices. LOL.

Anyway, I have two books finished, and a third’s been
started. Here’s a link
to the PopSugar
with some info about the challenge if you would like to join me. Below
are all the prompts for the year, including the challenge prompts. I’ve already
made a List
