Like last year, the challenge I am participating in this year is put on by PopSugar. As I complete a task on the challenge I will update it here. Challenges will remain bold until completed. Once completed, the task will be linked to the review and the Goodreads page of each book.

My Goodreads challenge this year is to read 100 books. I will do my best to update this page as I read.

I have read 111 books out of 100 this year. (111%)

While I succeeded in completing, and surpassing, my Goodreads goal of the year, I unfortunately left 16 of the 39 tasks from the SugarPop Challenge incomplete. So all in all, I completed about 60% of this challenge. Next year I have planned to set more achievable challenges that will hopefully help me keep money in my wallet in the process.
