Popsugar 2018 Reading Challenge

I am determined to read more this year so when I saw the Popsugar 2018 Reading Challenge I jumped at the chance to take part. It includes 40 books and then another 10 for the advanced section. Considering my plan this year is to read 52 books then I, in theory, should be able to get through this 50. You can see the article here and join the Goodreads group here which had tonnes of threads on book suggestions if you are stuck on a number. I’ll be adding what books I read for each topic as I read them.
