2018 Reading Challenges: I Accept!

Happy New Year readers and bloggers!

Like everyone else, I am SO excited about participating in challenges. There are juicy challenges out there, but I’ve narrowed it down to the three below:

1. 2018 A to Z Reading Challenge (hosted by Ginger Mom & The Kindle Quest)

Here’s the deal. We’ve got 365 days to read titles starting with every letter in the alphabet. Sounds do-able? We’ll see… Wish me luck! And hey, they’re also giving out level badges for every ~5 books you complete – FUN!

2. 2018 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge (by POPSUGAR)

Now I have to be honest, this one looks tough but I can’t resist. I mean, look at their list!
