So I'm participating in popsugar's reading challenge this year. I'm not taking any stress about it though since I know I can't possibly read every book I've put on this list. I'm also doing doubles here: if one book fits in more than just one category, it will fill more than one category. At least this challenge brings variety to my reading and I have already read books that I might not have picked up without this challenge!

Here's what I've read so far and what I'm planning on reading for this challenge!
