POPSugar Reading Challenge 2017

I came upon a few reading challenges for this year. Last year, I think I joined about 2 reading challenges. This 2017, I will try to join as many as I can to put more diversity in my reading. I am more into mystery, suspense and thriller books. In 2016, I have read books from different genre and from a lot of new authors. I will continue to do the same and meet more new authors.

Earlier this week, I posted about joining A Wild Goose Challenge. This time, I am going to try my hand at the POPSugar Reading Challenge. I came upon this challenge through J. Rose Allister's newsletter. Just click on the link and you will be directed to the popsugar's site. There is also a Goodreads Group which you can join.
